French term or phrase: dans les terres
This is from my ongoing project about estate fruit growers.
Here is the phrase:

Aghione, au flanc des monts Antisanti. A 15km d’Aleria ***dans les terres***. Haute Corse, France.

Now, I understand that this is a geographic description, but do they mean "by land"? "over land"? "in the vicinity of". They surely cannot mean, literally, in the land as phrased. Am I just being thick? If it is obvious, my apologies.
