VILLA AURELI, HISTORICAL RESIDENCE. LARGE GARDENS, SWIMMING POOL. SECOND FLOOR.

Perugia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 to 4 bedrooms, 1 to 2 bathrooms, 4 to 8 people (optional)

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 orangery. 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. On demand, dinners and wines of the house are served.

Second floor

This bright apartment (200 sq.m.) has original 18th century furniture and decorations, four balconies and many windows overlooking the garden. Rare sets of ancient prints decorate the drawing room, the large dining room and the gallery. The main stairway of the villa provides independent access from the garden. Double room with king-size bed, twin bedroom with extra large and long beds, large shared bathroom with twin basins, bath and shower. Wonderful views from all windows. Large fully equipped kitchen with dish-washer and washing machine.

On demand, an enlarged version of this apartment may be available, adding one double bedroom with king-size bed and a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

The rentals rates are referred to the basic 4 people version.

Note: by simply unlocking a door, the first and second floor apartments can be joined, and the main Villa can be rented as a whole for large groups 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 and leading it to the orangery, to the fountain and to the water tank of the vegetable garden were used to collect water for 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 charming swimming pool and large and different spaces in the garden for their privacy and quietness.

I had the chance to grow up in Villa Aureli. Now I am an astrophysicist working at the Arcetri Observatory in Firenze, but 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 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 history and art of the past, in four confortable apartments with separate entrance doors and private areas in the different parts of the large garden and in the coutyards.

Children are very welcome at Villa Aureli. In its large 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 dinners in the garden, under the stars.

A spectacular setting in the centre of Umbria

  • 5 of 5
The Villa Aureli is a magical place, sitting on the edge of the small village of Castel del Piano. The view from our suite looked over the formal gardens, past the old gate and a flock of sheep, down a gently sloping valley bathed in autumn light, falling leaves and scattered morning mist.

Our suite on the second floor was a magnificent taste of Italy past, with room to spread out and fascinating details in every niche.

The location was a perfect base for our exploration of the stunning hill towns of Umbria: Gubbio, Orvieto, Perugia and Spoleto. Each was astonishing in its own way, but we were always happy to come home to 'our' villa.

Our hostess, Carla, was so wonderful to us in her greeting, her advice on where to eat and what to see. When one of our group had a medical issue, she went so far beyond what could be expected, arranging a doctor and then escorting us the hospital. She was truly exceptional.

This is an amazing place, and was the highlight of our three week tour of northern Italy. I shall remember our villa in Umbria for a very long time.

Stellar Villa

  • 5 of 5
One of our favorite family vacations to date. Villa Aureli is a true hidden treasure steeped in a sleepy, authentic Italian town. Our children, 2 1/2 and 6 years old at the time, had unique adventures exploring the property, watching the shepherd move the sheep, and learned to place their breakfast and coffee order in Italian at the local coffee bar right behind the property. The Villa itself is breath taking and contains more history and art than most museums in the US. We can't wait to go back! If you want a pure, non-commercialized Italian experience... Villa Aureli is perfect.

un soggiorno incantevole !

  • 5 of 5
Io sono stata ospite a villa Aureli assieme alla mia famiglia nel luglio 2010.Noi avevamo la grande fortuna di avere a disposizione tutto l'appartamento del primo e secondo piano e, per chi ama l'arte ,l' architettura e le bellezze di altri tempi, soggiornare in questo posto è una continua festa per gli occhi! Non si poteva decidere quale fosse la stanza più bella o particolare. Eravamo in 10 persone e siamo state sempre a nostro agio sia in casa che nella tranquillità del giardino.
Spero di avere l'occasione di tornarci al più presto.

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.
