Overview

Photos and Description of this Città della Pieve holiday chateau / country house

Family /friends: WI-FI, Jacuzzi, fishing pond, playground, fitness trail, bikes.

It' s All around you; That means that you can actually see from Po' del Vento: Città della Pieve (13 km), Cortona (35km), Chiusi (10 km), and Montepulciano, Chiusi Lake, Trasimeno Lake (10 km); Perugia (38 km), Assisi ( 60 km) from the top of the hill, but not Paciano (3 Km) Florence (120km), Rome (145km), Orvieto (35km).

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.

Po' del Vento is in Miralaghi estate, 350 hectares -750 acres of beauty in a natural park; only 15 km from the A1 motorway, at an altitude that goes from 450 to 630 msl, with an enviable climate, both in winter and in summer, on top of a hill, overlooking Chiana Valley.

Po' del Vento is a nice, comfortable, of f the XIX century, stone country house with a unique view over Trasimeno and Chiusi lakes across to the Amiata and Cetona mountains in the background, surrounded by famous, ancient villages: Città della Pieve, Cortona, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Chiusi the old capital of Etruscan

At night, don’t miss the spectacular view of the dark sky crowded with stars and the surrounding valleys lit up by hundreds of pin-point lights.

I tried to make the apartments following the natural architecture of the old farmhouse and my Italian taste. I mixed together ancient and modern, trying to give you all the comforts you have at home.

Po' del Vento is divided in three apartments: Po' del Vento 1 at the first floor with a large terrace, a large dining room, separate kitchen, 3 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, two bathrooms with shower.

Po' del Vento 2: 1 sitting room with a area for the kitchen, opening onto the garden with a gazebo overlooking the valley, 2 twin/double bedrooms with 1 bathroom.

Po' del Vento 3 Ground floor ,1 living/dining room , 1 kitchenette,1 gazebo overlooking the valley, 2 twin/double bedrooms with 1 bathroom.

All flats have their own parking places, their own external living spaces with garden furniture, barbecue, mosquito nets at the windows, heating, house linen, HI-FI, hair dryer.Wi-FI.

Close the house the swimming pool (6X11) with the shade of the trees the perfume of the roses and sun-beds partly covered to let to read your preferred book.

Near is the children play ground with the swing, the slide, the tunnel, the sand-pit, the duck on the spring , the house of the children.

Nature, culture, art and relaxation: come to Po' del Vento to discover some of the most interesting and beautiful areas of Italy and to admire some splendid works of art dating back to the Roman-Etruscan civilization through to the Renaissance.

Or just enjoy Po del Vento in Miralaghi property with its wonderful excursions on foot or mountain bike, close to untouched nature with dense woodlands full of wildlife, FISH at our fishing pond (No-kill fish), take a PICNIC at the Romantic lake, do, as Rambo, the FITNESS trail in the forest (17 equipments, the children like it a lot ) or simply walk along it and our 20 Km of scenic path, play ping- pong and soccer table.or boules at bowling green, or climb on the two birds watching, lies under a tree chattering or reading or simply looking at the changing sky; you will recharge your batteries

Tired? Play chess under the oak, admire the wonderful sunset and the never- ending view around you, eat out and try our local gourmet specialities, not forgetting our olive oil.

Born as a hunter’s reserve there are still many species of wild animals, which I try to protect in every way: foxes, roe deer, hedgehogs, porcupines, wild boars, hares, and squirrels near Foresteria and Villa Miralaghi fire-flies in June, July. A couple of buzzards and a hawks often circle above us. A family of barn owls is often seen at night. Robin, jay, hoopoe, green-peak are usual visitors. Pheasants and partridges are often set free here.

At the begin of spring there are the violets, in Italy we do a delicious blue candy with the violets, a lot of wild flowers during the spring, the sun-flowers in summer; In september in the forest you encounters carpets of cyclamens. At the end of September until the beginning of November you can find many species of mushrooms- books explaining them are at home .

If you like a different experience come the first week-end of November when we start the harvest of the olives.

Every week I invite my guests at the swimming pool to introduce them at the masterpieces of the sorroundings: Paciano a faboulous middleage small fortified village, Panicale a wonderful renaissance village, Chiusi the old etruscan capital of King Porsenna with the etrusca tombs to visit and the underground town.., Montepulciano where is the most beautiful cellar of the world (and the wine, of course), the playgroung of Twilight II, Cortona (under Tuscany sun) the one I like more with a wonderful museum with the oldest lamp in the world (IV cent. BC), Castiglione del Lago on the Trasimeno Lake with the fortress done by Federico II to reach through the walls of the town, his nice weekly market..., The Maggiore island in the lake to reach by ferry from where admire the sunset on the lake. Sarteano where a new etruscan- roman tomb has been recently discovered, Cetona with the preistorical caves, San Casciano or Bagni San Filippo where to go to take a hot bathe during the winter....Perugia with the stunning Rocca Paolina marvellous and unknown.

Once a week I do a lesson- testing on extra virgin olive oil.

There is still much to see: in Arezzo there is a nice antiquity market the first Sunday of every month, Siena of course, Assisi the town of San Francis with the two churches one up the other , , ,Gubbio .

And staying more than one week don't miss Le Marmore falls the highest falls in Europe and Frasassi caves the most beautiful caves where I've never 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,

About Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini

Hello,

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 is Po' del Vento. All around us there is not the savannah, of course, but hundreds of kilometers of nature, culture, architecture all around you.

I like a lot this place because is in the hearth of the most beautiful area of Umbria and Tuscany and I like to share it: it is a unique place. The air is clean, full of good energy, the silence is broken by the birdsong.

I stay at the country all year long. 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 is beautiful, near Rome and Florence in un area full of theaters, events, festivals, music, concerts, parade, cinemas. You will find all the info about it on our facebook page under miralaghi- the one with my face.

Sometime I do a horse-ride inside the estate with a magnificent Arab from the near riding-school.

or simply I like to sit on the stair of the house to chat with my sons while we admire the countless stars in the pure sky above us.

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

Why Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini chose Perugia area

if you come here, follow my advice: returning late after midnight stop off; the valley is no longer sparkling with lights: is asleeps and the sky sparkles of lights has become more close, you feel wrapped in it. Are truly infinite the stars of heaven. It 's crazy. Everything is silence. Perfect. Leave these astonishing momente, you would like of not go to sleep. ... The barking of a dog, in the distance, barely audible captures you. What a magic moment. Put these feelings inside of you to remember one day .. at home.

See the hawks playing with the wind.

The temperature 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 time if in the valley is foggy here is always sunny 3.4 7 degrees higher.

At the center of a lot of trips in a area where there is the 40% of the architectural beauty of Italy, with a lot of cultural, historical and traditional events

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Watch at the unique view , breathing the pure air: millions of cubic meters of leaves clean the air; drink spring water; sleep like a father prior, as written by a customer; eat typical dishes of central Italy: , venison, mushrooms, truffles..visit the most beautiful medieval and renaissance villages of Italy; near two lakes, near the highest waterfalls in Europe, near the caves of Cetona and not far from those of Frasassi.

In an area rich in thermal waters, SPA and natural springs where to enjoy.

Walking, mountain biking, fishing, climbing on bird watching, play bowls with your children, with darts, table tennis, table football, relax by the pool or in the Jacuzzi, in a land so vast that it is difficult meet with other guests. For this, on Monday I gather everyone to the pool to, showing you the places to visit, reveal its secrets and give you a chance to meet each other and make friends, if you want.

In the evening, after preparing your dinner at the BBQ with wood that are around, enjoy our video library, or play to the many board games or simply Stretch out on a chaise longue to watch the stars; sometimes, if you agree, we call a astronome to show us.

Or ask me a lesson -tasting on the extra virgin oil or a class Italian cooking...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Po ' Del Vento. La colline où soufflent les vents. Ici, on peut se baigner dans le ciel et toucher du doigt les nuages .

"Seul l'esprit, s'il souffle sur la glaise, peut créer l'Homme".

Il y a sur ces collines comme un parfum de création du monde et on y entend le chant ininterrompu de la vie. Cela donne envie de s'asseoir et juste regarder, s’émerveiller d’avoir, un instant, senti battre le coeur du monde.

Merci pour cet instant d'éternité.

Incredible views at great value!

  • 5 of 5

The advert on Holiday Rentals doesn't do this apartment justice! This is a fantastic way to spend a week or two getting away from it all in the heart of Italy. There were no signs of mass tourism despite plenty to do in the area. You could pay double for an equivalent place in Tuscany, but why bother... this is only a 15 minute drive from the Umbrian-Tuscan border! But don't only use Po' del Vento as a base to explore Tuscany... when you arrive, you will see how much Umbria has to offfer to, with a beautiful lake in the centre of it. The apartment itself is exactly as described in the advert - it's spacious inside with plenty of room to spread out and relax. The terrace is huge too and that's where the views are! Wow! I spent a good week or two looking on the Internet at perhaps 20 properties in Tuscany and Umbria and this was easily the best I found in the price range. I would happy to recommend Po' del Vento to anyone! Thanks Maria-Luisa!

A glorious month at "Po del Vento 1"

  • 5 of 5

It was with a heavy heart that we left after spending the most wonderful month of October at Po 1..It looks exactly like the pictures and although there were only two of us we enjoyed the spaciousness and comfort of having the whole place to ourselves. The views from the terrace were breathtaking and the location was perfect. Restaurants were plentiful and nearby and all the towns on our list were within an hour away. Maria Louisa was truly the hostess with the "mostess". She gave us all the information we needed to know about Tuscany and Umbria and made sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. We told Maria Louisa that the next time we come we want to stay for a year. If you are thinking of Po del Vento 1, you need to hurry and book your stay before we do.

Fantastic views from the top of the hills!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here, two couples for seven nights. What views!! Very large apartment and had everything we needed, we ate in quite a bit and the kitchen had all that we needed to prepare meals. You must have a car as it is about 3km from the nearest paved road but it is well worth it. Would have loved to use the pool but we had quite a bit of rain while we were there. Maria was wonderful to deal with and took care of any problems when she was made aware of them. I would highly recommend staying here.

Location rilassante

  • 4 of 5

Casa accogliente e molto ben organizzata. La terrazza è super sia per la vista che per la comodità (un grosso tavolo per stupende abbuffate). Luogo ideale per una vacanza relax con amici o con parenti. Molto vicina a tutti i centri culturali e non. Piscina davanti a casa... Jacuzzi a due passi... la parola d'ordine è relax. Tutto accompagnato da una stupenda lezione sull'olio che riuscirà a convincervi che non è tutto olio buono quello che si paga tanto....

A wonderful, picturesque location, recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday, up in the hills in the beautiful grounds of the estate. Were we enjoyed panoramic views of rustic towns and idyllic lakes.

The villa was extremely well appointed, spacious and offered the feeling of 'traditional' Italian living.

Our hosts (Maria, the owner and her son) were attentive and helpful, they made sure we could take advantage of all the local facilities and their suggestions and advice was invaluable, making the holiday truly unforgettable.

The estate and villa were ideally placed to enjoy the local towns and villages with major attractions like Arrezzo, Montepulciano and Cortona in easy driving distance. The local town Chiusi train station offered frequent mainline trains to Rome and Florence.

I have no hesitation in recommending the villa and the estate itself (a number of villas are available for rental) and hope to stay there again in the future spending more time with Maria and her family.

On top of the world

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth trip to Po del Vento on top of the hills with its breathtaking view and relaxing nature.

We stayed for the third time at the upper appartment - Po del Vento 1 - which we recommend for all people looking for an ultimate 270 degree outlook and outstanding sun sets.

The apartment is as described on the webpage , has enough rooms and facilities for up to 8 people, TV is new, Wifi included and with 5Mbits fast enough - we stayed here with our 3 children as a party of 5 persons.

In our opinion the house has everything you need: you can spend whole days hiking or relaxing at the pool or just getting inspired watching clouds passing by or start a short trip to the pittoresque near by italian towns.

Road to Po del Vento has been renewed so the access is much easier than some years ago.

We love it, because you forget all rhe hurriy just in the moment you arrive.

Maria-Luisa lives close by and takes care of everything.

Be aware: water is precious in summer season.

Owner's Response: Dear M. , after five stays you could not describe better and more sintetically the meaning of the holiday at Miralaghi: so beautiful in itself that worth the holiday just looking at the fantastic views to get rid of the stress and the hurry of a working year, "from the moment of your arrival" :-) as you write better. Also with the discovery of the unusual beauty of the property that is like a park with: forest, woods, olive trees, fishing ponds, the stunning views all along the 20 Km of scenic paths.., or relaxing by the pool, or visiting the nearby pittoresque villages and towns. For the younger doing fitness along the forest or playing boules with the family or organizing competitions at ping-pong or the soccer table or going with the mountains bikes. The whole enlivened by my advice according to the inclinations and aptitudes of my guests. It gives me tenderness through the alternation of your visits to see your children become teenagers.

Car: necessary

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

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

From your home you can see: 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 and a little bit further 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 born 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 le 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.
