My ancestors lived in Umbria since 1500 . My greatgrandfather bought Pianciano in 1911 and I have a deep link with Spoleto and this area. The property still belongs to our family and the large Villa Paradiso is our family house. I am a civil engineer with a master at the MIT, Boston. Even if i live in Rome and have worked abroad for many years, I like to spend all my free time at Pianciano. Horseriding and taking care of the property are the most relaxing activity during holidays.

Francesco Bachetoni purchased this villa in 2013

The medieval hamlet of Pianciano need restoration. I decided to give the hamlet a new life! I love to share the pleasure to stay at Pianciano with other people, and to let them know Umbria and Spoleto. When possible, I take our guests for a tour in our family house, Villa Paradiso. It has a private collection of paintings and art objects and it gives an idea of Italian taste for art.

Pianciano has not been a choice, it is a heritage I love to take care of it. The peace of the garden, the quietness, and the spectacular view on the olive grow, more then 11.000 trees, is something unique. The feeling of being in continuity with the past brings an incredible energy to face the challenges of the future.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
This is a well kept secret this was one of the most beautiful place you could stay, and if you do stay be sure to have Gabrielle cook for you what a wonderful cook, and a beautiful person you will not regret it, I tried to take her home with me but she didn't have a passport. The owner was very gracious and was a great historian what can I say except perfect in every way, you will not regret your stay here, somewhat secluded but easy drives to anywhere you care to go.

Five-star hospitality at Pianciano!!

  • 5 of 5
After a few weeks camping in the Marche, we - a family with 4 children in the age of 13, 14, 14 and 17, had a great time at Pianciano in Casa della Rocca. The location is wonderful. Highlights during our stay: the home-made pasta when we arrived, relaxing at the pool, Umbrian cooking lesson with Gabrielle (with truffles and meat from the estate), the pizza-evening, the amazing view,... And the great hospitality of Fransesco and Claudia! Not only their service at Pianciano was great, but also their help with our carproblem. For the hole week we could borrow the jeep of Fransesco. And the last few days of our stay we had a pleasant time in their house. So we could fortunately still explore the beautiful surroudings of Spoleto: Monti Sibillini, Perugia, visite the winery in Montefalco,...
Pianciano is a beautiful place to visit again!

Pararadise at Pianciano !!!

  • 5 of 5
Consider yourself fortunate if you can get to visit Pianciano. So comforting upon arrival with welcome meal waiting.. Grounds are beautiful, so very peaceful and quiet. Accomodations are plentiful. You are on your own, yet a phone call away from assistance. Claudia is wonderful to confirm your arrangements prior to arrival. Francesco is charming and full of history. If you are fortunate to visit the castle, a wonderful treasure for memory, breathe it all in. If you have a car even better, we managed without and were fine. Visiting Spoleto, Spello and the must see Assisi.. We love this place and hoping to return. Another thanks to the staff on hand as said everyone was so helpful. Also try the restaurant down the road from Pianciano or a cooking class both were great..

Our perfect Umbrian holiday @ Pianciano

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Pianciano. The location is beautiful. From the house and pool we had a breath taking view overlooking the valley. We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing holiday. We stayed at Pianciano for 2 weeks.

Highlights during our stay; relaxing at the pool, the hospitality of Francesco and Claudia, Umbrian cooking lesson with Maria (with truffels and meat from the estate) and baking pizza's in the 300-year old oven with Aziz.

When you are looking for the perfect spot for your Umbrian vacation, this is the place. Floortje and I can recommend Pianciano. We are looking forward to returning to Pianciano in the future.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
I've just returned home after my travels & I wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed Pianciano. It was way beyond expectations. The place to stay & the beautiful surroundings, towns, villages. I didn't want to leave.

We started with getting lost in Rome & having a very exciting drive through the centre of the city! Francesco was very good to meet us & after our harrowing experience he even graciously supplied a second bottle of wine!

The people in the Campello grocery store were delightful. So helpful & even with the language barrier we managed to communicate well. The butcher there was so good to try to point out the local produce, foods, wine etc. One of the cashiers spoke more English than we were able to do Italian & she was very good to us.

The chickens on the other hand weren't so helpful - we fed them well & got a total of 4 eggs all week!

Would love one day to see the Bachetoni farm. It was such a pleasure to sit outside, sip wine & gaze at the beautiful buildings & olive groves across the way. Although the greenfly from the vines were trying to take over our table! We stayed in La Roccia & it was very comfortable for 5 of us including my elderly mother. She was careful on the stairs but did fine.

I really can't say enough about this place. I showed photos to my neighbour & now she's hoping to plan a stay there next year. Oh, dear - I hope Pianciano doesn't get so popular that I can't get booked!

Grazie!
