Overview

Perugia Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms: 1 double bedrm, 1 twin bedrm, 2 bathrm, 1 single bedrm, sleeps 6

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. At the villa the guests can enjoy the rare beauty of the setting and the peaceful atmosphere. 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.

First floor

Spacious apartment (200 sq.m.) with original 18th century furniture and decorations and independent access from the garden via a small ancient tower. Its large drawing room has an open fireplace, a piano and four large windows with beautiful views on the garden. TV. Cozy double bedroom with king size bed and large bathroom with bath, shower, hairdryer, natural soaps. Second bedroom with large twin beds. Second bathroom with bath and shower, twin basins, washing machine, hairdryer. Studio with comfortable sofa-bed and second large and extra-long sofa bed in the living room.

Small but fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, beautiful dining-room with ancient prints on the walls.

Baby bed and chair available on demand, pets welcome; free wireless Internet connection available.

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 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 extraordianrily 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.

Beautiful house close to Perugia

  • 5 of 5
We were welcomed to the villa Aureli by our host and his dogs. The first floor apartment is spacious and well equipped - lots of space and the essential wifi connection for those of us traveling with teenagers!
The house and grounds are beautiful and the pool is a welcome sight at the end of a sight seeing day.
We were well looked after and close to several lovely Umbrian towns (Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio to mention just a few).
The village is just around the corner with some good cafes, bread and cake shops and a supermarket all within walking distance.
Sperello is a welcoming, but not imposing host and was more than happy to show us around the house and gardens and provided us with lots of information about the area.
Great holiday - thank you!

Villa Aureli, Castel del Piano, Umbria

  • 5 of 5
With build up of expectation the approach through Castel del Piano is alarming but then come a couple of sharp bends to gate piers with beyond - yew and box hedged enchantment.
We had the two large apartments - in effect the west wing - for a party of twelve including two under fives.
This is the ultimate Italian villa complete with plasterwork, fresco and furniture - not a 'holiday let' - not ensuite either - but gracious and spacious - with everything for one's needs and host and hostess kindly but discreetly on hand for help. There is freedom to enjoy a large part of the garden and park with small pool to refresh: tables for al fresco dining - as an alternative to the Gallery or Dining Room - a piano in the saloon for evening recitals.
Castel del Piano - just beyond the gates - though wanting visually - can provide for all immediate needs - including new tyres!
Perugia and many other sights are within easy range - if one can bear to tear oneself away from the Villa!
Our only regret was that we weren't there in June to enjoy the lime avenue in full bloom.
This is a quite exceptional place to stay and we felt very privileged. I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Aureli - and hope to return there very soon myself.

Holiday in

  • 5 of 5
3rd time that we stayed in beautiful Villa Aureli. In 2006 2 weeks on the 1st floor, 2007 one week in each appt and in the last time in 2009 2 weeks on the second floor. Magnificent apartments: our son Vincent discovered a small chapel next to the 1st floor apartment. The 2nd floor apartment has a nice library. Really spending holiday in an historical setting! Very clean with nice garden full of old lemon treas beautifully maintained by the gardener.

When waking up, what a splendid view. Great nature behind the property to go for a walk. Breakfast with some pastry from nearby coffee shop, a swim in the pool, relax in a comfortable chair in the garden and wireless Internet to stay connected.

From villa Aurelli, we made numerous trips: easy with the motorway and superstrada nearby. We visited Cortona, Siena, Orvieto and Citta della Pieve. When visiting Perugia, park your car at the outskirts and take the "Mini Metro", a small unmannded railway that takes you straight into town.

There are also some smaller towns that we can really recommend: Spello, Spoleto, Chiusi, Montefalco and in particular Todi: a bit smaller but the real Umbria.

So definitely recommended, we spent 3 great holidays at Villa Aureli!

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. 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 outlet and factory sales.
