Isabel Abbott – Villa Pian Di Cascina
Quite a few years ago Isabel and her husband gave up sensible jobs in the city to pursue a dream of living and working in Italy. They spent several very long years painstakingly restoring an abandoned 17th century farmstead in rural Umbria. They spent even longer resurrecting, clearing and re-planting the 20 acres of surrounding olive groves and abandoned countryside. They opened their award winning, family friendly home to visitors in 2007. They are passionate about being part of something that brings a smile to the faces of so many families. They also manage and run a small organic farm which grows soft fruit, olives for oil and organic vegetables.
