Monte Labbro (or Labro) is found on the south-west side of Monte Amiata and the Nature Reserve stretches for over 650 hectares in the municipality of Arcidosso, between the Zancona stream and its tributary of the left Onazio moat to the north, and the Albegna river to the south. The entire area is surrounded by medium-range mountains with summits, like Monte Labbro, which can reach 1190 metres.
The reserve has a noticeable lack of trees and vegetation, limited to the Onazio stream area, with Turkey oaks, chestnut trees, elms, hazels and maples. The chestnuts are mostly found on the northern side of the Monte Labbro where they cover a space of around 60 hectares.
