There are boundless vineyards, olive groves and holm oak forests around the villa and the Erica Scoparia,  the shrub used to make brushes, and which gave the place its name, still grows wild in the environs.
The village also has a typical  18th-century garden, the Roccolo, with  age-old miniature oaks and rare plants, another example of that perfect harmony between man and the environment which is typical of the Tuscan countryside.
The Roccolo  dates back to the 18th century, and was initially an open aviary  where the falcons used for hunting were trained.  At the time hunting with birds of prey was considered a noble art and had it roots in the Middle Ages when the Emperor Frederick II of Swabia wrote his  “De arte venandi cum avibus”.
