The medieval historic center of Perugia is the perfect base to explore Umbria. Giuliana's elegant apartment on Via Volte della Pace is the ideal place to stay in this ancient and fascinating city. The furnishings and decor are beautiful and the apartment is immaculate. Rita, the property manager, is both delightful and extremely helpful. She gave us excellent advice on restaurants, shopping, fairs and festivals, helping us feel like "locals" almost right away. Everything in the apartment worked beautifully and we definitely put it to the test. During our 1 month stay we had one small plumbing mishap and it was promptly handled. Kitchen appliances and china are as elegant as everything else here, making cooking a pleasure. The local produce/meats/wine/cheeses are such a treat that I was thrilled to have a reason to shop for groceries and to have such a lovely place to prepare meals when I wanted to. Our month in Perugia was magical. The town is filled with wonderful restaurants, museums and fascinating historic walks. The community is vibrant and at all times the streets in the historic center hum with local activity. We attended 1 month of Italian language classes at the University of Stranieri and our apartment could not have been more perfectly located. In every way, working with both Rita and Giuliana was effortless and they were always readily available. We will be back!
We stayed an amazing 5 days in this fantastic house. Located in the middle of the old town, it's undoubtedly the ultimate choice for anyone wishing to taste the real experience of living in Umbria. Very elegant, stylish and tastefully decorated, the house remains warm and welcoming despite its huge space. True nobility is the prevailing feeling one gets living for a few days inside this environment and its surroundings.
Everything was exactly as advertised. This includes the service which we had the chance to stress test for real. There was a sudden problem with the gas supply one night. The owner's friend who was in charge, reacted immediately, a technician arrived and solved it in a few minutes.
Parking the car near the house is of course impossible but we used a 24-hour parking at a lower level which had always available space and reasonable daily tariff. Perugia is built on a hill, the house is at the tallest spot so everything else is located lower. Still there are public elevators from the parking up to the old centre, so we faced no problem carrying luggage or ourselves after a daytrip.
All in all, I could not recommend this property highly enough. We loved Perugia, and this house as well as the people behind it contributed much to it. If you are looking for a true Umbrian experience, go ahead and rent it at least for a week. Drastically different from the usual tourist accommodation but utterly rewarding. Thanks Giuliana for this memorable stay.
