About the property

3 Regions 3000 Reasons

Between Umbria and Tuscany, in a area rich of natural and architectural beauty, welcome to "Le Foresterie", the holiday lodge of Miralaghi, an estate of 700 acres of nature in a natural park and a perfect position to visit Italy; 18 Km from the highway; from 400 mt to 600mt of altitude from where you can see: Città del Pieve (13km), Cortona (35km), Chiusi, the ancient capital of Etruscan (10 km), and Montepulciano, Chiusi Lake, Trasimeno Lake(10 km); Perugia (35 km), Assisi (60 km).

Come and discover some of the most interesting and beautiful areas of Italy and to admire some splendid works of art dating from the Roman-Etruscan civilisation through to the Renaissance.

The hill, between two valleys, has an ideal microclimate, with a gentle breeze that cools the air by the day; a strong temperature range that brings the temperature at night to 18° and 20° C, 65-68 F.

Le Foresterie is the first house you meet when you arrive from Tuscany; ideal for people who desire a "slow holiday", to relax and day dream in an area surrounded by trees and listen to the sounds of the woods and admire the stars at night.

All apartments are large, comfortable and welcoming.

Le Foresterie looks toward Città della Pieve and the hills around; it is an old casale divided in 4 apartments connected together 2 by 2 from the corridors, to give you the possibility to stay together; with large walls from 40 to 60 cm inside and outside to guarantee your privacy.

All apartments have a master bedroom which features a King Size bed with dual side tables & lamps and a twins bedroom (wich can be transformed to King size beds in Foresteria/ apartments 1-2-4 ) with dual side tables & lamps and wardrobe .

The bathrooms feature a full-size shower.

Each apartment. has a parking area, an independent entrance, mosquito nets at the windows, their own outside area fully equipped with wooden table and benches, chairs, sun beds, hammock, and a barbecue.

You may stay chilling at the lounge of Foresteria 3 enjoyng the french-window looking towards the garden in summertime, in Foresteria 1 in front and beside the fireplace during the winter time, in Foresteria 2 sun bathing on the terrace or all together in Foresteria 4 watching the smart TV or on the sun-beds in the gardens.

Children will enjoy the play-ground (two swings, pendolino, duck, slide, sand-pit, duck, children's cottage) the ping-pong, the soccer table, the darts, the bocce court, the heated swimming pool ( the heated pool is 400 m from the house, 700 mt by car.) the bikes; with you, the birds-watching, on the trees, the fitness trail along 1 Km in the forest with 11 equipments more than 20 exercises, the SPA Jacuzzi, the fishing pond (No-kill fish); or take a pic-nic in the other equipped small lake.

Here you can enjoy wonderful excursions hiking or mountain biking along our 20Km of internal scenic paths, close to unspoilt nature with dense woodlands full of wildlife.

The Forest is amazing.

Tired? Why do not play chess under the oak tree, or admire the wonderful sunset and the never- ending view around you?

At night, don’t miss the show of the dark sky crowded with stars.

Check your email from the comfort of your sofa with Wireless Internet while the kids will stay entertained with toys, DVD movies, the board games and cards.

At Miralaghi we have many species of wild animals (which I try to protect in every way) : foxes, roe deer, hedgehogs, porcupines, wild boars, hares, squirrels and fire-flies in June, July. Hawks often circle above us. A family of barn owls is often seen at night. Robin, jay, hoopoe, green-peak, bee-eaters and other birds are usual visitors. Pheasants and partridges are often set free here.

Spring is flower season and it last well into autumn with violets, wild flowers, sun-flowers and cyclamens. From the end of September until the beginning of November you can find many species of mushrooms.

For a unique experience join us the first week-end of November for the olive harvest

Weekly I do olive oil lesson- testing.

I live on the estate and I like to invite my guests into my home for a drink.

We have a facebook page where you can find the pictures of all the activities here and of the surroundings.

About Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini


The property was bought by my grandfather after World War II, when returning from Africa, was looking for a property near Rome, that reminds him of the wide spaces of Africa and he felt in love for Miralaghi estate where le foresterie is. All around us there is not the savannah, of course, but hundreds of kilometers of nature, culture, architecture and art that you can see all around you.

I like a lot this place because is in the hearth of the most beautiful area of Umbria and Tuscany. You can reach a lot of places. I like people who come to visit my property because I like to share it: it is a unique place. The air is clean, full of good energy, the silence is broken by the the gentle breeze and birdsong.

I live in another house in the estate where I like to invite my guests for a drink. Miralaghi is a perfect place where to live and work because it is beautiful, near Rome and Florence in un area full of theathers, events, festivals, music, concerts, parade, cinemas. So after my work I can do something that generally you find in the big cities as a fantastic exibition in Florence or Rome, or festival in Perouse or theather in Città della Pieve or Montepulciano, to be ready to give you the best 'adress' at your arrival.But sometime I prefer to look at the stars with my sons.

Or sometime I go to do a horse-ride with a magnificent Arab horse inside the magnificent property where I never time to go.

Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini purchased this chateau / country house in 1957

Why Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini chose Città della Pieve

See the hawks play with the wind is a strong emotion, as well as see the approach of rain and the landscape disappear under it, like in a movie. In winter are frequent the warm light and the sun as on a tropical island that rises on a sea ... of fog.

The temperature is perfect because there is always a gentle breeze: in summer during the day it' s never hot, at night it falls down at 18-20 degree centigrades- IDEAL to sleep. In winter is never foggy as I said but it's possible to see a cloud to move towards us. The weather is wonderful until the end of December and from the end of March. Not far from Rome and Florence , you can be there in about one hour, by train or by car. At the center of a lot of trips. This is un area really active in culturals events all around us.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

What makes this property unique is the view: there is no one better in my opinion; for 360° around us, for hundreds kilometers of nature and story.

The second unique benefit is the location: close to a lot of beautiful villages either in Umbria either in Tuscany, near the lakes, easy to reach Rome and Florence.

The third unique benefit is a gentle breeze that refresh the air in summer, as we are at 500 on the sea level; at night the temperature falls at 18-20° centigrades.

The fourth unique benefit is that in winter is never foggy

The fifth unique benefit is the good energy of this place. Really healthy: there are billion square meters of leaves that clean the air.

The Sixth unique benefit is the proximity to a lot of SPA bathes

At 18 Km from the highway: Ideal center for a lot of excursions in Umbria and Tuscany and Latium.

In the immediate vicinity, I advise a lovely medieval village: Paciano, 3 Km, and a beautiful Renaissance village: Panicale, 7 Km.

During your walking inside the property you can see all around you: Chiusi at 10 Km, Città della Pieve 14 Km, Castiglione del Lago at 12 Km, Trasimeno Lake 12 Km and Chiusi Lake 10Km , Montepulciano 25 Km, Cortona (Under The Tuscany Sun) at 30 Km, Perugia at 35 Km, Assisi (San Francis town) 50 Km.

Travel on Trasimeno Lake to the fisherman’s isle where you can spend a great afternoon.

If you would like to discover ' Il Perugino' go to Città Della Pieve to Santa Maria de I Bianchi is the most beautiful fresco of him: "The nativity".

Chiusi, the ancient city of King Porsenna, is a city of Etruscan origin. you can visit the interesting archeological museum and the system of tunnel underground the towns used to defense the town.

The tombs, which are very interesting, are visible nearby.

Not far is Montepulciano; the most beautiful Renaissance town in Italy. I advise you to go to the Avignonesi cellars to taste the fine wines and the Redi cellars the most beautiful in the world for Newsweek.

Further away is Pienza the first small Italian city built according to a regular plan. The "ideal town" in the 17th century and one of the “Treasure of the humanity” for the UNESCO.To arrive in Pienza follow the indication to Montichielli, NOT to Pienza.

I ensure you a beautiful charming trip.

On the other part of Lake Trasimeno is Cortona- under Tuscany Sun- At the museum of The Etruscan Academy there is the famous Etruscan lamp, the oldest in the world.There is also a magnificent “Announcement” of Beato Angelico and paintings of Luca Signorello.

You must visit in Perugia the “Rocca Paolina”, a curious item: A barbican built on 200 houses.

Equidistant is Orvieto; the Cathedral is stupendous The Well an emotion for adults and children. And recently they opened the “underground town”.

There is still much to see: Arezzo, Siena, Assisi (The town of San Francis with the two churches one up the other ) Gubbio ....

And staying more then one week don't miss the Marmore falls (they are opened all day long only saturday and sunday), the highest falls in Europe and Frasassi caves the most beautiful caves I've been in all my life.

If you want to go by train from Chiusi, you can travel comfortable to either Rome or Florence in about one hour, and still return in the same day.

Abbiamo soggiornato a foresteria 2 a settembre 2016, il posto e' veramente incantevole. L'appartamento e' comodo ed essenziale, fornito di tutto cio' che terrazzo da sul bosco quindi svegliarsi alla mattina e fare colazione fuori e' una bella sensazione x chi proviene dalla citta'. Unico piccolo problema e' stata la strada sterrata per arrivare al casolare . Il primo tratto era abbastanza dissestato e una macchina bassa fa un po' di fatica ad evitare buche e pietre. Comunque vale assolutamente la pena soggiornarci per piu' di una settimana, nei dintorni ci sono itinerari e mete x tutti i gusti ma anche x chi vuole tranquillita' puo' restare dentro alla tenuta miralaghi e usufruire di un mucchio di cose messe a disposizione x gli ospiti. Il personale e' stato molto cordiale (in particolare Livio) e sempre pronto a soddisfare le nostre esigenze.

Purtroppo abbiamo conosciuto Marialuisa l' ultimo giorno ma ci ha fatto un' ottima impressione, sicuramente un motivo in piu' per tornare.

Relaxed days on the mountain Pausillo

  • 5 of 5

At Le Foresterie we enjoyed a very relaxing holiday. The house is situated high up on the mountain Pausillo located in the forest. The apartment is appropriate furnished. The large terrace invites to sit outside most of the time. There we had the sun all day and we could relax perfectly. Getting there is a bit exhausting because of the bad road condition. Especially when you have a car that is not suitable for a gravel road. But the wonderful view

and dreamlike tranquility equals everything. The only " noise " in the area are the birds and crickets. In the evening you have a wonderful starry sky, as there are no distracting lights around the house.

Maria is a wonderful landlady. Our arrival had been significantly delayed. When we arrived at Le Foresterie we were allowed to choose between the actually rented apartment and a second apartment. The terrace convinced us very quickly. Although it has already become late, Maria came by again to check if there is anything we would need. The things that were missing were brought by here later form her home. For this intent once again a special thanks.

The next day, Maria took some time for us to give us lots of advices and explain some interesting spots for us. Her enthusiasm for Umbria and the Tuscany was palpable and contagious. Further trip advices followed per email. Once again Maria was very helpful when our car broke down and we needed to find a mechanic. She called a mechanic for us and accompanied us to the garage and the car rental. By far this is not a matter of course but it helped us tremendous. It was our first stay at Le Foresterie but for sure not the last one. We look forward to come back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely words. I took my time to answer because I wanted be sure to be in condition to tell you that the road would have be redone.In fact since last spring 2014 the road has been completely redone and now is a smooth, easy , flat unpaved road, good even for your old lady Mercedes.Hoping to see you again soon, I would like to let you know that a new jacuzzi is now near Le Foresterie

Appartment with balcony in trees.

Forestiere 2 is nice accommodation with a lovely balcony however we were disappointed due to the distance of the pool. As it says in the description the pool is 700 m away but this is up a steep road that can only be driven up to and there are no toilet facilities up their so you have to drive back down to use the loo! There is no view from the property as we hoped, you have to travel to the pool to get views. The property is up a 3.5km backroad (gravel track) which is steep in places so does take time to nip to the supermarket if you forget anything. The accommodation is a little tired, and very noisy as the appartments are only divided by an internal door. We could hear everything from the neighbour.

We had no water or toilet for two of the days but the owner did try to resolve this quickly.

The pool is a little tired also and could do with smartening up, the mesh fence around it looks untidy and uninviting.

The washing machine is up by the pool so another car journey to do the washing.

THe whole place was disappointing, the description in the details promise so much and yet when you get there it is quite a let down.

Be careful as WIFI is charged at 20 euros a week, we thought it was free.

The surrounding area is lovely and easy access into Tuscany and Umbria.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your criticism, which we will treasure; however, I must observe that despite the fact that on the changeover day our maintainer, in the tentative to unblock a drain, has broken both: :the water pipe and the gas one, you did not suffered from the lack of water (closed while the plumbers repair the pipes,) as you arrived later. Sundays, is true, for some stupid circumstance linked to the previous day 's, lack of water has been from 2 pm to 5pm. But it seem to me unfair to remember it in terms you refer. About the noise it is certain that even a radio too loud you can barely hear from a room to another one, because the walls are in stone and 30- 60 cm thick. Of course the apartments are connected (as in many hotels to be rented for two family together) by a door that in this case opens on a corridor. Given your grievances on Sunday morning we have put 12 icm of sound-absorbing material against this door and as your own admission there was no more noise. Altitude is one of the first information we provide, the distance is highlighted in bold as is written that le Foresterie is hidden in a forest of pines. Finally I remember perfectly at the end of your stay your tanned and reinvigorated face, really another person. Maybe for walking to pool admiring along the way the stunning views ? Even from your apartment through the trees on the hills around and at night you have one of the most beautiful view of the stars of the entire estate. We will improve services around the pool, is our priority, and next year Foresteriie will have at least one large Jacuzzi. I promise. Last but not least after a long bureaucratic process a state agency is remaking the entire road also within the property If you want to stay in paradise close to lovely surrounding and easy access into Tuscany and Umbria, as you remind, 3,5 Km is not too bad ;-). Cordiali saluti. The owner

beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

The house is set in a forest on a hillside with fantastic views, a chorus of birdsong by day and the nightingale by night. The kids loved exploring the brooks and paths as well as the playground. We recommend this holiday rental for people who are not looking for an exclusive five-star suite but who enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods surrounding the house and who don't mind a bit of driving to get to the excellent sightseeing opportunities (although some of them are not that far of and the beautiful villages of Paciano and Panicale are within hiking distance and also well worth a visit). Recommended in particular for families with children (equipment for babies and toddlers is very good). Thanks again to the kind owner, Maria Luisa, who tried to fulfil our every wish and who was so helpful every step of the way and gave us very good tips on what to see and do. We had a wonderful time :-)

Beautiful nature, nice house, wonderful towns

  • 5 of 5

We spent our summerholidays 2008 at Miralaghi. We found a beautiful and quiet place out in the open. In the surroundig there are a lot of wonderful historical old towns. Nice to look around and go shopping. and eat something.

House and pool were clean and well-kept.

Thanks a lot to Maria für advice and support.

We will come back!

Prima appartement, enigszins gedateerd, met een geweldig zonneterras

  • 4 of 5

De woning is van alle gemakken voorzien en er zijn ruim voldoende huishoudelijke dingen om te koken; badkamer is enigszins gedateerd. Het enorme terras bied volop privacy. De gigantische buitenjacuzzi staat op 25 meter afstand en het zwembad is 3 minuten rijden met de auto. De 3 km langzaam stijgende gravelweg naar het huis is goed berijdbaar en kost je ca. 12 minuten vanaf de openbare weg. Eigenaresse Mausi is een hartverwarmend persoon, heeft veel tips en doet alles om het je naar de zin te maken op haar landgoed.
