The weather beginning of Oktober was great, so we could use the pool and enjoyed the small villages arround and the country side. The house was perfect. The owner has well renovated the place with lots of small little details. Everything you need for a great stay was there. Well equipt kitchen, even with two fridges and a new barbeque. The sleeping rooms with attached bathrooms were very clean and also well equipt. In the middle of our stay the house got cleaned and we all got new towles etc. You can see that the owner and Tecla (the woman who is in charge) are more then interested that everything is perfect. They even look atfer the fire wood so that you always have enough wood for a nice fire in the evening. Also they provide you with lots of books and information about the area you are staying. In the house and around you have lots of space to hang out. As it is a little bit off the track, around 7 min. on grevel road, you enjoy nature. Come and find out. We will come back.

This is a great location if you want some peace and tranquility in an incredibly natural and unspoilt environment. Villa Miralaghi is nestled on the side of a hill, in pine and oak woodland and is cool and pleasant even in the high summer. The property is set in a large country estate with many trails, paths and lakes. You are more likely to see wild boar and deer here than people! The house itself is charming and very spacious for either a large family or two smaller ones. It has all the amenities you need and there are communal facilities like children's playground, hot tub and table tennis nearby. The main feature for our family was the heated pool which our children used everyday. It was a good temperature, private and has natural shade if the sun is really hot. This was a great location to base ourselves and saw Citta Della Pieve, Castiglione Del Lago, Cortona, Montepulciano and Pienza. We even drove up to Florence. I would recommend this to family and friends and would stay here again.
