About Francesco Bachetoni
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
Why Francesco Bachetoni chose Spoleto
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.
What makes this villa unique
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.
