In November 2012 nearly three hectares of different types of oak and hazelnut trees were planted. The roots of these trees were impregnated with truffle spores before being planted in the meadow surrounding the church, along with five other local plant varieties, in a design that will one day resemble a large park. Guests are encouraged to take advantage of the walks down to the steam running through the bottom of the valley as well as throughout the estate on mapped walking tracks. The walking tracks meander through the valley and allow guests to admire the different views of what is one of Italy’s most beautiful valleys.
