Located in the highest piazza in the picturesque medieval town Trevi. The house is within walking distance of several restaurants, shops and services. There is almost no traffic in this part of town.
Once a chapel, now transformed in a historical loft.
The 17th century converted chapel has been very successfully restored into a modern luxury 3 bedroom mansion.
Palazzo Neri is a three storey structure with a roof terrace and there are stone steps from the ground floor to the roof top. The rooms are designed around a center atrium and each level has a view of the antique fresco surrounding the fireplace and painting.
We live in Belgium, we have two nice children in their twenties and we love to travel around Europe.
Rik Jouret purchased this villa in 2012
We crossed Italy from north to south and from east to west.
In Umbria we fell in love with the medieval villages on the hills. Especially we like the scenery around Trevi with the wine yards and the olive trees.
In Trevi, a small picturesque gem in the middle of Umbria, we found a palazzo for sale with historic background, but recently completely renovated with all modern conveniences. We fell in love with the place and … bought it.
The house was originally built as a home for the priest Antonio Costa (the same name as the little village Costa, next to Trevi) . The house is situated on the noble square Piazza Della Rocca , and is surrounded with beautiful palazzo’s.
The house was transformed in 1650 into a chapel for the congregation of Pilippo Neri. It is number 21 on the map of historical properties in Trevi.
During the last century the house was more like a ruin . In 1996 architect Falcinelli started to restore the house. In 2000 the restoration was finished.
The property is now a beautiful palazzo, with parts of the old chapel like a high atrium, ceilings ...It can be considered as a historical loft. The 17th century converted chapel has been very successfully restored into a modern luxury 3 bedroom mansion.
This was a return visit for us, having stayed here two years ago. We hoped that everything was as perfect as we remembered, and we were happy to see that it definitely was. The town of Trevi is a jewel, set up on a hilltop that is covered with olive trees and grapevines.
The location of Palazzo Neri in the center of town makes you feel like you are a resident. The unit is equipped with everything you would need during a visit, so you don't have to worry about buying things like spices and oil that you will not finish during your stay. The owner has thought of everything. The minute you open the front door, you know that you are in a special place. Returning there at the end of busy days was a real pleasure.
Trevi is a lovely, welcoming town with excellent restaurants. The caffe on the piazza has the best cappuccino we have ever had! All of the towns in Umbria are worth a visit and a stroll around town. We enjoyed a drive to Ancona on the Adriatic through the mountains and numerous tunnels.
We would be happy to return to this place for a third time.
The view of Trevi looming over us as we came off the historic Roman road Flaminian Way was dramatic. An historic medieval village complete with Piazza; winding passageways and incredible views, Trevi is the perfect spot to explore Umbria. And Palazzo Neri is the perfect place to indulge in daydreams of being a Renaissance Prince/Princess with its 3 story vaulted ceiling; rooftop terrace; complete and modern kitchen and amazing decor. Clean; unique and even better than the online description, the Palazzo was everything we had expected and more. A great villa in a beautiful part of Italy. Enjoy!
Words cannot express the charm of this town. It is only surpassed by the awe one feels as he enters into Palazzo Neri. We were extremely impressed by our accommodations here. All of the bedrooms were well situated with all the comforts of home and the kitchen was the perfect place for us to cook meals for six. There are many villages within a short drive and we were able to make many trips out but the best part of the trip was staying in Trevi and experiencing your wonderful village and its friendly people. Thank you so much for everything, we will be back soon!
Although the photos on the website suggest the unique qualities of this palazzo, on our arrival we were still amazed by the 10 m. high central room (and the others) and the overall livability. The juxtaposition of modern art was also a plus. I've never encountered such an unusual, beautiful, well-stocked and clean property. No amenity was overlooked. Even previous knee replacements didn't deter some of the group from ascending the stone stairs to partake in a glass or two of wine on the rooftop terrace.Three of our group of six (we've studied Italian together for years) stayed here and the other three in an apartment recently bought and updated by two of them. As you might guess from the last sentence we needed no convincing to visit Trevi where all of us had been before. The owners, Rik and Bernadette had many suggestions as to what to do, where to eat, where to taste wine and olive oil. We went to most of them and added a few more. I would definitely stay here again.
The location could not be better, right in the heart of Trevi. Our initial introduction to Palazzo Neri, by Moira, was was warm and effective, and the next morning's Cappucino "Speciale" started a daily ritual, as she makes the worlds best.
Palazzo Neri was very clean, comfortable, and of course picture perfect.
From there, we were able to do our planned day trips, with all of our destinations reached within minutes - perfecto! We also greatly appreciated the recommendations of Rik & Bernadette, with both La Vecchia Posta and Taverna del Setta worthy of our return visits. (once was not enough) In Spello, Roberto proved to be a perfect host, and we tasted and talked wines for over five hours. Fantastic!
My wife fell in love with Palazzo Neri from its homeaway description. We were not to be disappointed. After first having to put off our trip to Italy because of a foot injury we later were able to put together a 42 day trip. After two weeks in the country we arrived in Trevi for our 24 day stay at the Palazzo. We really felt like part of the community and loved the tips we had received from Rik the owner on what to do and where to eat etc. . We found the people in the hotel next door and the restaurants all within a short walk among the nicest in all of our Italy travels. The warm reception we received most mornings when we took our coffee at the Café Roma in the Piazza started each day off right. Most days we threw a dart at the map of Italy and made our way to one of the many close by cities. Always returning to the Palazzo by late afternoon and able to kick back before deciding on which of the many good restaurants in Trevi we would enjoy that evening. We did shop at some of the local groceries and on occasion just enjoyed cooking our own dinner but with something added from the wine shops and maybe the local pizza places. The Palazzo left nothing lacking and the real fun was seeing the look on our visitors faces when they walked in and were overwhelmed by the spacious and beautiful Palazzo where we choose to spend most of our vacation. The surrounding country side is truly beautiful and my wife and I enjoyed our daily rides between Trevi and the target of the day city as much as the cities visitied. The stairs in the Palazzo helped keep the weight off from all those good Italian meals. Our thanks go out to Rik and Bernedette for making this lovely Palazzo available for a truly incredible vacation.
