Umbria-Tuscany and much more, it is all around you: from Po' del Vento you can see a unique view from Acquapendente ( latium) through Monteleone d'Orvieto ( Umbria) on the South to Sinalunga in the North in Tuscany; Trasimeno lake ( Umbria) and Chiusi (Tuscany) lake through the Amiata and Cetona mountains ( Tuscany) in the background, surrounded by famous, ancient villages: Città della Pieve, Castiglione del Lago, ( Umbria), Cortona, Montepulciano, Chiusi ( Tuscany) the ancient capital of the Etruscans. If you walk 300 meters to the top of Mount Pausillo you can admire Nestore valley, Pietrafitta lake and the towns of Perugia and Assisi ( Umbria) until the Sibillini Mountains ( Marche).

In the midst of more than 300 hectares, in a huge natural park, on top of a hill overlooking the Val di Chiana, it lies this simple, comfortable, renovated, old country house, with

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

I tried to make the apartments following the natural architecture of the old hunting house and my Italian taste. I mixed old and new together trying to give you all the comforts you have at home.

All apartments have their own parking spaces, their outdoor areas partly covered, with garden furniture, sunbeds with parasol, hammock for a shady siesta, table with benches and chairs to eat outside. inside mosquito nets at the windows, heating, household linen. WI-FI throughout the house.

The communal heated fenced pool is close the house, near the playground with two swings, a slide, the tunnel, the sandpit, the duck on the spring, the pendulum, the children's cottage. On the estate there is also a bowling field, fitness path in the forest, a fishing pond, another where you can take a pic - nic with table and benches, 20 km of scenic trails, table tennis, table soccer.

Po 'del Vento is divided into three apartments that can be rented separately or together for a large group or a family and his friends.

Po 'del Vento 1 on the first floor has a large terrace, large dining room with a long table of 3.30mt that can host all the people of the house, separate kitchen, 3 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom, two bathrooms with shower.

Po 'del Vento 2: ground floor, 1 living room with a separate kitchen area, one double bedrooms and one twin bedroom with 1 bathroom with large shower of bricks.The garden gazebo overlook the valley,

Po 'del Vento 3: ground floor, 1 living / dining room, 1 kitchen, 1 gazebo overlooking the valley, 1 double bedroom and one twin bedroom with a full bathroom with a large shower of bricks.

Beautiful nature, relaxation, the sound of birds, the view of the surroundings and the stars at night are our landscape.

Every week I invite my guests at the pool to introduce them to the surroundings masterpieces: Paciano a delightful small medieval fortified village, the magnificent Renaissance village Panicale are close; Chiusi, the ancient Etruscan capital of King Porsenna with Etruscan tombs to visit and the underground city, Montepulciano where c 'is the most beautiful wine cellar in the world (and the wine, of course), the play of Twilight II, Cortona (Under Tuscany Sun), with a wonderful museum with the world's oldest lamp (IV century BC. ), Castiglione del Lago on Lake Trasimeno with the fortress done by Federico II to be reached through the city walls, the beautiful weekly market ..., the island of Lake Maggiore to be reached by ferry and where to watch the sunset over the lake . Sarteano where a new Etruscan - Roman tomb was discovered recently, Cetona with its prehistoric caves, San Casciano where to take a hot bath to the natural spa, during the winter .... Perugia with its splendid Rocca Paolina wonderful and unknown .

There is still a lot to see: in Arezzo there is a nice market in antiquities on the first Sunday of each month, Siena, of course, the city of St. Francis Assisi, with the two churches one on the other, Gubbio.

If you're more than a week do not miss Le Marmore Falls the highest waterfall in Europe and the Frasassi caves the most beautiful caves in which I have been in my entire life.

If you want to go by train from Chiusi, you can travel comfortably to Rome or Florence in about an 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 Città della Pieve

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: ravioli, 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...

You have everything you could need here. Be ready to read and relax a lot. No TV but there is so much to enjoy who cares! There is good wifi so you can connect your devices if you need to. One of my favorite things on this vacation was meeting the people who come up to Monte Pausillo on the weekends. There are tons of trails and roads which attract bikers and hikers from all over the world. They stop here because it is the high point with some space to rest. Love it!

                                                                      The owner is a lovely woman who is very intelligent and has lots of good advice about places to go and what to see. Listen to her ;-)

                                                                      Lorraine E.

Off the beaten track so be prepared for some dirt track driving, but worth the effort for the amazing sunsets over pristine mountain scenery. Comfortable accomodation with swimming pool to help with relaxing at the end of the day.

                                                                      Right in the middle of Umbrian historical sites and hilltop towns abound!

                                                                      Host happy to help with any requests for assistance.

                                                                      Really, :-) One million miles from the stars above us that we can see because of the vastity of the property and the absence of light pollution, but only 3Km from the main road, close to the most beautiful hilltop towns of Umbria and Tuscany. We are proud to be so plunged in the nature in a such inclave of architectural and cultural beauty.

                                                                      Thank you a lot for your stay and review.

                                                                      Stunning position

                                                                      Barbara Wilson

                                                                      The position of this farmhouse apartment was stunning, with uninterrupted views for miles over glorious countryside. From our comfortable sun beds or hammock we looked over Lakes Trasimeno and Chiusi and watched flocks of rainbow bee eaters darting about overhead.

                                                                      The farmhouse is divided into three very spacious apartments and each has its own private entrance and seating area, so a sense of privacy is maintained. There was a lovely pool and a good play area for children.

                                                                      However, inside was very dark with dated furnishings and we felt a few splashes of colour would have helped as the current dark green and brown wasn't very welcoming. There was no tv or dvd, so bear that in mind if, like us, you are not ones for going out in the evening. Perhaps the biggest concern we had was that access is over two miles up an unmade single track, deeply rutted in places and requiring utmost concentration at all times. Not for the faint hearted!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Dear B. thank you for your review, all true, but with some careful: still 2 of 7 apartments for rent are without TV, for a specific choice, clearly indicated in the characteristics of the apartments; but after this review, I will not hesitate to add TV at Po 'del Vento 2 :-). Lighting is by led everywhere and in the bedroom there are spots. Lots of lamps everywhere, frankly surprises me that you have found dark the apartment. I will check it again; the furniture: as you can see from the pictures are green - sofa - and red all the beds. Finally the way: we do our best to maintain the road and we expect after the bad weather to cover the holes (a few) but the road to heaven, alas, can not be asphalt. :-)

A great base for travelling to visit the many sites nearby, we especially loved the small town Paciano and got great service from the small grocery store there.. While the temperatures reached 37 on some days the house and pool kept everyone cool! Marie-Luisa was a great host and a great source of information regarding places to visit beyond those listed in tour-guides.

The location is great with the accommodation offering lovely views to the hills and valleys around. Accommodation is a little dated but adds to the rustic charm. Maria was a great host and wanted to ensure we had a great stay. Pool is lovely and location is peaceful. Overall great value stay in a great setting.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

I would like to remember your enthusiasm in respect of all there was to do as for example: the cooking lessons, the ride on quads..It's a pitty that you have missed my lesson on oil and oil testing. Lets try to make it up next time. :-)

                                                                      Dream location and fantastic host

                                                                      We stayed here in August 2010 and had an absolutely fantastic time. The views are spectacular and Maria Luisa, the owner went out of her way to look after us. We arrived late after the supermarkets had closed on the Saturday. When we opened the shutters the next morning Maria had left a basket of provisions for us - bread, coffee, milk, biscuits and a jar of honey from the estate which was enough to tide us over until we could buy food. Maria's knowledge and passion for the area gave us an insight beyond what the guidebooks said and brought the areas history alive. We mixed with other families at the olive oil tasting which led to a number of drinks parties throughout the time we stayed there - which was lovely. The estate is beautiful with its walks and gym trail. Having mountain bikes and fishing rods available also is a great bonus to explore the grounds. The holiday was amazing value and I hope to go back soon.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Città della Pieve, Perugia, Italy

                                                                      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.
