VILLA AURELI HISTORICAL RESIDENCE. LARGE GARDENS, SWIMMING POOL. ADOLFO WEST.

Perugia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 5

In the heart of Umbria, near the ancient city of Perugia, Villa Aureli stands like a jewel in a hilly countryside, where lines of pine trees mark the horizon. The villa dates back to the 18th century when Count Sperello Aureli restored a 16th century tower adorning it with frescoes, prints, and painted furniture. Among the wonders of the house, the colourful Vietri ceramic floors, different in each room, the bright fist floor gallery, the garden ornamental walls and the orangerie. The present owner, Sperello di Serego Alighieri, works on astrophysics at the Firenze Observatory. He offers two apartments where the guests enjoy the rare beauty of the villa and two apartments in the house of the former gardener Adolfo. All the guests have private spaces in the park, with wonderful views on the hilly Umbrian countryside. The pool (12x4), made out the ancient water cistern, is set in a sheltered area of the park, with southern exposure.

The House of Adolfo.

During World War II Villa Aureli was used as headquarters by the German and then by the allied troops. Adolfo Guelfi was the faithful gardener who saved all the furniture and precious objects contained in the villa by walling them up in a large room. The House, built in XVIII century, is adjacent to the orangerie; it has been recently restored respecting the original features. It has air-co and modern facilities, and original furniture from the villa. Direct access to the garden and to the swimming pool, and private spaces for open-air dining.

Adolfo West

This lovely apartment has a private entrance from a small courtyard. On the ground floor, living room with kitchen and dining space. Dishwasher. Living room with flat-screen TV and home theater. Free wireless internet connection. First floor bedroom with king-size bed and large sofa-bed, bathroom with bath and shower, hairdryer. Tower bedroom with king-size bed, wonderful views, small bathroom with shower. Direct access and private spaces in the garden.

Fully equipped laundry with washing machine and iron in the basement.

Note: by unlocking a communication door the two apartments in Adolfo's House can be joyned and host a large group of friends.

At Villa Aureli we try to preserve the environment and to offer our guests a stay consistent with the ecosystem. When the villa and the garden were made some centuries ago, there where no electricity nor gas, and chemical fertilizers did not exist. Both were therefore built in order to minimize energy needs. The thick walls isolate the rooms from cold in winter and from heat in summer. The water pipes collecting rain from the roofs lead it to the orangerie, to the fountain and to the water tank of the vegetable garden, to water the garden without energy consumption. Modern life needs extra energy, so we provided to install a system of photovoltaic solar panels that covers the needs of all the apartments, including air-conditioning in Adolfo’s House, where the walls are not as thick as in the Villa.

All guests enjoy the lovely pool and large and different spaces for their privacy and quietness.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Today I am sad to be leaving. This place is beautiful, from the vineyard to the sheep and ducks, to the land that spreads out of the garden, to the history this place holds. I felt privileged to stay here and would love to return some day. I wish Italy were closer for me to travel to, so that I could come often. Thank you for welcoming us here and for the wonderful Italian dinner. Your country is beautiful!

I had the chance to grow up in Villa Aureli. Now I am an astrophysicist working at the Arcetri Observatory in Firenze, but I spend most of the week-ends at Villa Aureli. If you are interested in my activity, please see my web site www.arcetri.astro.it/~sperello

Villa Aureli is a classified historical monument that was passed down in the centuries through several ancient families: Gregori, Aureli, Alfani, Meniconi Bracceschi and finally di Serego Alighieri. It remained extraordinarily unchanged in time and spirit.

For a taste of life in the history and art of the past, in four confortable apartments with separate entrance doors and private areas in the different parts of the large gardens and in the coutyards.

Children are very welcome at Villa Aureli. In its fenced gardens they may have fun watching the animals of the farm, sheeps and lambs, chicken, ducks, and playing with the house pets, the small and friendly dog Pepe and the two cats.

Quinto and Adriana, our gardener and cook, are always there to help, if necessary.

We provide candles for dinner in the garden, under the stars.

Villa Aureli

We loved our stay at Villa Aureli because of his historical surrounding. The Villa and the garden house have been renovated with respect for the historical details! The interiors, furniture, decoration, everything has been conserved so carefully and reused in the renovation in combination with contemporary and tasteful elements and modern tools. All facilities are present. The owners are very charming and helpful regarding information about the house but also about the surrounding and whole the region, and stay at your disposal! It is a place where you feel at home and can discover a lot of beautiful secrets...

Villa Aureli is situated next to the village of Castel del Piano. The ancient Etruscan city of Perugia with its monuments, museums and theatres is only 10 km away. The Lago Trasimeno with its islands is very close. Many other charming old cities of Umbria (Assisi, Todi, Città della Pieve, Gubbio, Spoleto, Orvieto), Tuscany (Siena, Cortona, Arezzo) and Marche (Urbino, Iesi) are within easy reach, i.e. less than about one hour by car. Firenze and Roma are at about two hours drive.

The Trasimeno lake with its lovely islands is about 20 kilometers away.

Interesting outlets and factory sales.

Umbria Jazz Festival in summer. Many music events and village food festivals.
