Villa Paradiso di Pianciano is historically bound to its vast agricultural estate which extends over 1200 hectares, mostly up the Valnerina. The Villa itself is immersed among olive groves (circa 25.000 trees), some dating back to the XVIII century. The production of olive oil is one of the estate’s strong points with harvesting, from October through to March, and olive pressing in the mill beside the Villa (visits upon request). The hills and mountains opposite the Villa are instead more rugged and house various species of wildlife which are monitored by Perugia University: wolves, wild cats, birds of prey, porcupines, wild boar, roe deer. The estate also produces exquisite DOP beef thanks to its 500 strong Chianina cattle farm.
The geographic area has been declared a Site of Community Importance (SIC) by the EU thanks to its exceptional wildlife and environmental variety and conservation.
The Villa, an Italian Historic House, is set within a large farming estate in the beautiful uncontaminated Valle della Spina. The harmonious landscape, with historical olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see, is the result of these Umbria hills being groomed for centuries according to agricultural traditions.
First built in 1630, the defensive turrets testify to Villa Paradiso’s tumultuous past which left way to eighteenth century transformations bringing splendor and opulence, the ballroom and the Dawn fresco. Since then Pianciano’s Paradiso offers the opportunity to travel through time and experience the delights of Italian history, art and nature.
