Miralaghi Agriturismo

We have 3 houses: 2 with apartments that we rent mostly from Saturday to Saturday in a large property of more than 700 acres like a natural park overlooking Chiana valley ( Tuscany) and Nestore valley ( Umbria) and like a crown around us the most beautiful medieval and renaissance villages in Italy as: Città della Pieve, Cortona, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago on Trasimeno lake, Chiusi and Chiusi Lake, Perouse, Assisi and so on. But we don't see Rome and Florence easily accessible by train from Chiusi railway station in one hour about. The work it hard only on Saturday when the families leaves their apartments or the villa and other families will arrive the same day. So we ( I and the volunteer )have to greet the people, help the two cleaning ladies and the maintainer to do their work and welcoming the new arrival from all over the world. Monday I collect all the new arrival at one of the swimming pool to explain the things to see and to do, the others day there is a light work of gardening, or cleaning the swimming pool ( generally is done by the manteineer) , put order around the houses or inside the storage room where are bicycles, fishing rods, toys, DVD ... for the customers. she/he could help me to answer to the mails arriving at the property - but generally I do myself this work.

I'm un old lady living with his son. My staff is very nice and all will be very friendly. The volunteer will have his own room with bed, night table, desk and something to hang his dresses. At home, that is above all the property, we have two bathrooms. The volunteer will be our guest mainly: eating with us, helping in the kitchen if she ( I would prefer) like to learn italian recipes, keeping order in the house ( the two cleaning ladies come twice a week). I will let her/him the old pick up of the farm to go out and inside the property because is big. She or he can have 2 days off as suggested, but she can be free most of the days to visit the beautiful surroundings around us. Sometime I will be pleased to go together because I need to know any news or event around to suggest it to my guests.

I spent a great time at Miralaghi! The place is beautiful and even if it's a little bit far from the different villages, you can go everywhere...Mausi and her son are very kind persons :)

The staff there are kind & nice, the work is light, but I cannot stop feeling lonely & homesick there. Also because of some reasons, frightened.
Some points to highlight: the house is the only one up the moutain, if you wanna go to the nearest town to see other people, you can only let the host to drive you down, which is inconvenient. If you can really live in a place without any friend for a month, then go (because you are the only worldpacker there, other guests all come in family group)
P.S. Mousi helped me a lot in the visa thing, I must thank her for that.

The work is REALLY easy and flexible! Maria is funny and will treat you as part of her family. In one month she took me for everywhere, including restaurants with her and her son! Hahahha. I visited every city around with her, who knows a lot about her country and will teach you about everything in Italy! The house is in one of the most beautiful places I ever been in my life!! The main house is in the top of the mountain with a perfect 360• view. I have no words to describe how amazing was my days there and how grateful I am for this time. Thank you Maria and Malio, I hope to see you again!!

Dear Nada, do not forget that we will do together to obtain the visa to come to Italy. Do not miss this opportunity: I was disappointed more than you and I was ashamed of the behavior of our embassy in Egypt.


Staying at Miralaghi was an experience that definitely changed my life. Not only the property is beyond beautiful, Maria (host) makes you immerse in a true Italian experience. She gave me all the amenities to make me feel at home but most important her friendship. She is the most energetic & strong woman I have seen, she will teach you what work is. She gave me the opportunity to travel around and she always gave me the best Italian tips for all the places. She did much more for me than she was supposed to do. Not only I had the Eurotrip of my dreams, I also found a family forever.
