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. All around us there is not the savannah, of course, but hundreds of kilometers of nature, culture, architecture.

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.

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 outstanding, 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

if you come to me, follow my advice: returning late after midnight stop off: 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

It is a unique place. The air is clean, full of good energy, the silence is broken by the birdsong..

Miralaghi estate is un ideal center for a lot of trips in Tuscany and Umbria. There are two entry one toward Tuscany- from where you arrives and the other from Umbria.

Here you have the opportunity to spend a day in total relaxation at the swimming pool or out your home or do activities with your loved ones, like go fishing at our fishing pond, do fitness in the forest (17 steps) walk or hiking along 20Km of scenic paths... or out: choose the destination of your trip from the top of the hill. It's all around you: Castiglione del Lago, Cortona (Under The Tuscany Sun), Città della Pieve, Assisi (San Francis town) Perugia.

Close, for a drink in a spectacular scenary I advise the middle age village (Paciano) and beautiful Reinassance village: Panicale.

Or by train reach in one hour about: Rome or Florence.

In winter time you could go for a day at the wonderful SPA or spend some hour in the night at the thermal natural spring in San Casciano or at Bagni San Filippo.

If you like to be fashionable you can buy the most beautiful fcashmere produced in Italy at factory prices ...and much more

Villa Miralaghi is un 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.

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.
