The plantations are in terraces, on steep slopes facing north and facing the sea. The soils are reddish, rich in organic matter, with little proportion of lime and abundant nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.


Except for exceptional incursions from the scorching African gale, the northern coastal region is subject to the action of northern winds which, while the influence of altitude does not manifest, determine a mild and pleasant climate with great thermal regularity: the daytime oscillation is barely noticeable And the annual reaches more about 7 ° C. Although the sky is cloudy and the atmosphere very heavy with humidity (60% relative humidity), rainfall is scarce as temperate temperatures prevent the condensation of this moisture.
