The FarmThe farm stands in a regional national park, on a spur above a small river, with breathtaking views over the Tescio Valley and across the wooded hills to Mount Subasio. The immediate area is one of great natural beauty. The hills are covered by forests, mostly of oak, and by the small farms with their olive groves, pastures, and fields of wheat, oats and barley. Far from the main road, it is a very quiet and peaceful place. For most of the day, the only sounds are the singing of birds and crickets and the river in the valley below.
The Farm

The hills and forests hide an abundance of local wildlife: martens, porcupine and wild boar have all been seen on the farm, and the wealth of bird life includes buzzards, goldfinches and hoopoes.

The Farm

In spring, the meadows, fields and verges abound in wild flowers, among them poppies, cyclamen, wild gladioli, and many types of orchid; from May to July, fireflies dance in the night, and through the summer the farm is home to some 30 varieties of butterfly. Along the river are waterfalls and natural pools, where one can bathe in the summer. The hills, woods and valleys offer countless possible routes for walking.
