The Borgo of Pianciano

History

“The borgo” originally belonged to the Pianciani family, together with Villa Paradiso and the large surrounding estate. In the early XX, it passed to the Bachetoni family who gave new life to the agricultural activities whilst maintaining the trademark olive oil production. Until the 1950s, the borgo housed the farmers of the estate. It was subsequently restored by Francesco Bachetoni, a civil engineer, who followed the restoration himself, drawing upon his professional expertise and his love for his Umbrian origins. Francesco and his family regularly spend time in Borgo Pianciano.
The architect Paul Favre directed the scrupulous restoration of the houses whereas the gardens were designed by the landscape artist Sofia Varoli Piazza.
Borgo Pianciano is the perfect destination for visitors wishing to discover Umbria’s natural beauties and ancient cities such as Spoleto, Assisi, Spello, Perugia, Montefalco, Foligno and Orvieto. It is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday including traditional little known Umbrian foods and wines.


Hospitality

“The borgo” includes three houses that can accommodate from 2 to 21 people (Casa dell’Arco, Casa del Cipresso and Casa della Roccia) and the Sala Alceo, a common space of 50 square meters.
