Leaving the town of Spoleto behind, the road enters the silent Spina valley, towards the Marche Region and then it crosses a miraculously unscathed Umbrian landscape. Driving into the Bachetoni property, on the left appears the olive orchard looking like a cloth of antique lace- it dates back to the XVII th century – and then the XVII th century Villa, il Paradiso, shrouded in the quietness protected by century-old cypresses. On the right, the farm sweeps through forests and grazing land towards the adjacent and still intact Valnerina, selected by Unesco to become part of the Universal Heritage. This area has remained surprisingly untouched and its original natural habitat has been preserved. Traditionally it is an olive-oil producing area in the context of the extraordinarily rich culture of the Umbria Region.
The estate spraws across 1.400 hectares and features the ancient rural “borgo” of Pianciano, where it is possible to experience the peace and silence that made Umbria destination for saints and artists over the centuries.
