LE FORESTERIE 16-18 PEOPLE

Paciano Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

4 large adjoining apartments of 4 -5 pers.up to 16 in Forest on a side of 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 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 civilisation through to the Renaissance.

Or just enjoy Miralaghi with its wonderful excursions on foot or mountain bike, close to unspoilt nature with dense woodlands full of wildlife, fish at our fishing pond (No-kill fish), take a pic-nic in the dedicated area, do, as Rambo, the fitness trail in the forest (17 equipments, even the children like it a lot ) or simply walk along it. The nature in the forest is amazing; climb on the two birds watching just to lie listening the sound of the wind through the brunches; let your children to go them self at the play-ground, play ping-pong, soccer game.

Tired? Relax in the pool, play bowls, play chess under the oak, admiring the wonderful sunset and the never- ending view around you, eat out and try our local gourmet specialities, not forgetting our olive oil. 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 is the first house 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.

It is about 20m from the bowling green and the children playground (wing, pendolino, duck, slide, sand-pit) ; 700m from the pool.

All flats are large, comfortable and cute.

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

All apartments has master bedroom features a King Size pillow top bed with dual side tables & lamps and a twins bedroom (we can transforme in King size bed in Foresteria 1-2-4 ) with dual side tables & lamps as well, wardrobe .

The baths features a full-size stand up shower.

Any 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, a barbecue,

Inside the property 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 encounts 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 to collect the olives.

I live in another house in the estate where; I like to give a virgin oil lesson- testing and info about the surroundings during your stay.

We have a facebook page where you can find all the activity of the sorroundings.

In the immediate vicinity I advise you to go to Paciano middle age beautiful well restored village and Panicale Reinassance village.

In Paciano in the small square of the village there is a very pretty bar for a drink, supermarket and a good butchery that accept American Express like Coop in Chiusi and Sidis in Città della Pieve, corso Vannucci,

The best supermarket (with a big choose of freshed and cooked or ready to be cooked food and beverages is EUROSPAR on the road toward Castiglione del Lago then Magione-Perugia , loc. Pineta; Near Chiusi, on the road: LIDL, SMA, FAMILA. If you are in Chiusi COOP is absolutely the best. In front of the small Conad in Moiano the new take-away ready italian good recipies.

RESTAURANTS SUGGESTED.

The one I prefer is in Città della Pieve at the hotel Vannucci: Osteria Pievese”at the entrance and “Lo zafferano” more expensive. Both are very high level, wonderful and with a rich fixed menu from 20€. For a brunch I suggest, if you like roar meat, Il Saltapicchio (10% discount saying you come from Miralaghi when you have to pay. And for a couple I suggest “Il bistrot del duca” below the theather. For sea-fish is very good “Il Fornello” 800 mt on the left exiting from Miralaghi on the main road, managed by nice Napoletani

In Paciano There is “La Loggetta” (with a lovely balcony on the valley) under the Fiorentini Tower and l ‘Oca Bruciata (also very good take away pizza). On the road of Chiusi going toward Castiglione del lago, before the turn to Paciano ZioTobia, 15€ fixed price and after the cross, going towards Paciano you will find Il Casale considered the best as typical food. (very fond of us, say you come from Miralaghi) Also in old Chiusi there is la La Solita Zuppa, the best restaurant with Zaira closed each other, in via Porsenna 21 (necessary to book, expensive).In Moiano “Il Pozzetto” for a new experience. Close to the lake of Chiusi –follow the indications to the Tombs and the lake- there is the very good one and not expensive Pesce doro for fish or for a brunch waiting the time to visit the Etruscan tombs.

If you are looking for an economical takeaway you should go to trattoria Porsenna in via Buonarroti near the station in Chiusi or L’angolo della Bontà In Moiano

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 generrally you find in the big cities as 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 inside 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

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. And in winter are frequent warm light and 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. And 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. in un area really active in culturals events all around us

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

The second unique benefit is the location: close to a lot of beautiful village erither 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 time so it's never hot.

The fourth unique benefit is that in winter is never foggy (may a cloud can arrive covering 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.
