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

Perugia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

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 East

This apartment (80 sq.m) has an independent entrance via the eastern facade of Adolfo's House and an external staircase, and is located on the first floor. It has a a private courtyard, kitchen/living room with flat-screen TV and DVD player. The kitchen has a microwave oven, a fridge with small freezer, and a dishwasher. The lovely blue bedroom has a king-size bed and the other room has two beds, which can be joined if necessary. Both rooms have a nice view over the courtyard of the ancient well and wood oven. Comfortable bathroom with bath and shower. Hairdryer. Direct access to the garden and to the swimming pool, and private spaces for open-air and candlelight dining in the garden and in the courts. Beautiful ancient paintings on the walls. Free wireless connection.

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 and leading it to the orangerie, to the fountain and to the water tank of the vegetable garden 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 large and different spaces for their privacy and quietness.

About Sperello di Serego Alighieri

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

Why Sperello di Serego Alighieri chose Perugia

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 dinner in the garden, under the stars.

APARTMENT INSIDE VILL AURELI

  • 3 of 5
The apartment was furnished with a updated bathroom and kitchenette. Your stay will be special because the gardens are beautiful, the apt is quaint, there are walking paths, and I bicycled with a hybrid on premise, the butcher (Massimo) and pizzeria (BABOOOOO!) are wonderful. GO!

An absolutely stunning house with a rich history.

  • 5 of 5
This property is a hidden jewel, filled to the brim with history and charm. Make sure to ask Carla for a tour of the house: it can rival many a museum. The gardens are beautiful, the apartment (we stayed in Adolpho East, the gardener's cottage) very charming. Recommended!

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.

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

Interesting outlets and factory sales.
