Paciano House Rental Photos and Description

4 large adjoining apartments of 4 -6 pers.up to 16 in Forest on a hill

Welcome to Foresterie- 15 Km from the highway, 500 altitude, the first house coming from Tuscany in Miralaghi estate 700 acres of natural beauty, from where you can see: Città del Pieve (13km), Cortona (35km), Chiusi (10km), and Montepulciano, Chiusi Lake, Trasimeno Lake(10km); Perugia (42km), Assisi (60km).

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.

Here you can enjoy wonderful excursions on foot or mountain bike, close to unspoilt nature with dense woodlands full of wildlife. Fish at our fishing pond (No-kill fishing), take a pic-nic in the dedicated area, or follow, as Rambo, the fitness trail in the forest (17 stops). The forest is amazing.

Children will enjoy the play-ground, the fitness trail, playing ping-pong, soccer table, soccer game, and walking through the forest.

Tired? Why not relax in the pool,or in the Jacuzzi, play bowls, play chess under the oak tree, admire the wonderful sunset and the never- ending view around you. 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.

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

All apartments are large, confortable and welcoming.

The bowling green and the children playground ( swing, pendolino, duck, slide, sand-pit) are 20m away and the pool is 400m from the house, 700 mt by car.

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

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,

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, and 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, (in Italy we do a delicious blue candy with the 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 un 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 sorroundings.

In the small square of the village of Paciano there is a very pretty bar for a drink, a supermarket and a good butchery.

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 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 house in 1957

Why Maria Luisa Pisa Simonini chose Paciano

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 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.

The fourth unique benefit is that in winter is never foggy (may a cloud can arrive to cover the top.

the fifth unique benefit is the good energy of this place. Really healthy.

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.

Or you can choose the destination of your excursion from the top of the hill. It's all around you: Chiusi at 10 Km, Montepulciano 25 Km, Castiglione del Lago at 12 Km, Cortona (Under The Tuscany Sun) at 30 Km, Città della Pieve 14 Km, Perugia at 32 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.
