Perugia area Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Vacation Rental Perugia, Umbria, Italy sleeps from 1-6 with 2 bathrooms

We are glad to be First on under "Specialty lodgings in Perugia - Glad to be choosen as " The most Charming place to stay in Perugia and Umbria from "The Umbria Villa Owners Association”that's the only owners association in Umbria, and Glad to be the only vacation rental in Perugia selected by the prestigious SlowTourism Association and to be in their Top Green Certificate!” ….and news in the 2015 we are so Happy to be an AVROA CERTIFIED PROPERTY and so to be selected from the American Vacation Rentals Owners' Association ( AVROA )

Our historic farmhouse dates back to the 1400's, and is built on Colle Giorgio, a hill just outside Perugia. It's situated in open countryside, yet it's a mere stone's throw from the historic centre of the city.

There are 10 points which make Villa Nuba the ideal home for short or long stays in Perugia, in the beautiful Umbria:

1. Villa Nuba is a historic and typical Umbrian villa surrounded by pine trees, vineyards and olive trees, and it is ideal for short or long stays. The rent for the residences that the villa offers for unforgettable stays is not only cheaper than a hotel accommodation, but also much more chic.

2. The location is unique in Umbria: the villa is in fact situated in Perugia, in the countryside, but just a 15 minutes walk from the historic center of the medieval and Etruscan city, as well as from the illustrious “Università degli Stranieri” (University for Foreigners) and the prestigious Italian language school named “Lingua in Corso”. Perugia is also at the center of Umbria and Umbria is at the centre of Italy, the ideal location … and the more convenient for those who want to have a foothold to visit not only Perugia and Umbria but all central Italy. And why not? Even a single-day visit to northern and southern Italy is possible.

3. There is no need to have a car: at only about 600 feet of country road there are all kinds of city services: bus stop, supermarkets, shops, pizza restaurants, pastry and coffee shops. You will stay in the typical Umbrian countryside but at the same time you won’t miss what every Italian city offers.

In Perugia Villa Nuba is the closest villa to the historical center you can rent.

4. The owners live in the villa and are always available for any need or to give advice to their guests – but, at the same time, discreet and respectful of their guests’ sacred privacy. Also this is unique in rents throughout central Italy.

5. The three luxury apartments are all romantic, charming, furnished with antiques and provided with all modern comforts, including high-speed wireless, jacuzzi, smart TV, DVD player, dishwasher, washing machines, independent air conditioning and fireplaces in every cottage.

6. Each apartment has its own private and well equipped patio.

7. The new salt-water pool is equipped with color therapy and it is open every year from April to October.

8. Relax area with gazebos ( cabanas), barbecue area, aromatic garden and parking inside the property and under the olive trees.

9. Safe playground for children.

10. The elegant cottages are ideal for romantic couples as well as for families, groups of friends or extended stay in our charming Perugia. We are happy to be pet friendly.

About 'The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments': What makes this property unique is undoubtedly the friendly family management, which provides a combination of tradition and culture with the three priorities of elegance, comfort and the close proximity of the owners. This balance is beautifully achieved in apartments furnished with antiques and decorated with frescoes depicting the paintings of the most celebrated Umbrian painters of all time, in accordance with Umbrian tradition.

The owners live in an adjacent wing of the villa, guaranteeing a warm, friendly Italian welcome. They are also available to give suggestions for sightseeing and cultural tours of the most interesting Umbrian towns, as well as Rome and Florence, a mere one-and-a-half hours drive from Perugia.

A host & town like no other

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to put into words how wonderful the stay in Perugia was. It was the best trip and I fell in love with the town; liked it better than our stay in Rome. Our host at Villa Nuba was like no other host I’ve met before. I’ve stayed at Bed & Breakfast places, but I’ve never had anyone spend soooo much time with us. I think my co-workers have heard my praises of Giuseppe multiple times, and I’ve recommended his Villa and the town several times to people I’ve talked to that have mentioned they are going to Italy. Giuseppe pointed out everything in the apartment & how to use it, as well as walking us around the grounds. He then took us in his car and pointed out various places that would help us with our stay. We ate breakfast every morning at the pastry shop he showed us. And we had a great dinner at his favorite restaurant. The town was fabulous and within walking distance from the apartment. We did however get lost a couple of times coming “home”. Our host was very sweet as he was extremely concerned when he didn’t see my 3 girlfriends and myself or our car for 2 days when we left early and came “home” late from our sightseeing excursions. If I’m ever lucky enough to go back to Italy, I’ll definitely stay there again.

Wonderful accomodation with a wondeful host!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Nuba was absolutely fantastic! The villa was perfectly situated with easy access into the town centre and accommodation itself was very comfortable and well organised. The addition of a fireplace was particularly lovely and made the villa very warm and cosy. Giuseppe, our host, was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. He provided a small food basket for the beginning of our stay which was very thoughtful. Giuseppe also provided us with lots of information on places to eat and shop in Perugia. He included a special 'gold card' which gave discounts on specific good quality restaurants and shops in the area which was a great bonus! Giuseppe himself is a really lovely and extremely funny guy. It was so wonderful meet him and his beautiful family. Thanks so much for an amazing stay! I hope to be back one day soon!

Warm, friendly and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Giuseppe’s Villa Nuba is one of those places that you would definitely call ‘a home away from home’. The villa itself is cosy, welcoming and has everything you need. There has been a thoughtful and tasteful effort put into the presentation of the quirky, cosy place, which immediately calls for your attention and creates a warm atmosphere. Giuseppe and his family are gorgeous, generous and accommodating people who you instantly like and feel at ease with. My family were here two years back, and now they have introduced me to this wonderful little paradise and I’m hoping to take my boyfriend here next year. Giuseppe, himself, is an awesome and very funny guy. He has a great sense of humour and tells brilliantly stories. He definitely knows how to have a good time and puts in a great effort to get to know us and treat us like part of the family. He was kind enough to take us out for breakfast and took us coat shopping (Giuseppe’s taste in clothes is exceptional- you can trust him to choose something WOW!). Giuseppe can speak fantastic English which made it easy for myself to communicate with him. It was also wonderful to have someone local provide tips on shopping, food, history and anything you’re interested in knowing about. He provides you with ‘gold cards’ that give you small discounts on shopping and food restaurants that you can rely on providing brilliant quality clothes and wonderful prepared meals. Giuseppe basically wants the best for you, and goes out of his way to make sure your stay is as wonderful and exciting as it should be. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know Giuseppe and his lovely wife Elga and their gorgeous son Lorenzo. I definitely hope to be back soon! Grazie mille!

Wonderful place in Umbria~!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the 2 bedroom apartment hosted by Giuseppe, and had a wonderful time in Perugia. Giuseppe was a very welcoming host, and took the time to drive us around the city briefly to show us the routes and places to eat.

The apartment had everything we needed, including food to start us off during our week stay there. The fireplace also adds a beautiful touch to the Italian winter.

His recommendations for dining places were also excellent, with slight discounts offered when stay at Villa Nuba. Would stay there again if we visit Perugia again for sure!

Situated in the centre of the Italian peninsula, the region of Umbria is traditionally considered the green heart of Italy. As a guest, you certainly will be enchanted by the dazzling views of centuries-old villages perched atop radiant, green, rolling Umbrian hillsides. Equally delightful is a visit to the ancient city of Perugia, the regional capital, to wander its narrow, winding medieval streets. Built on the crest of a hill at an elevation of 493 metres, your gateway to the city will be the magnificent Etruscan Arch, still perfectly intact.

The Etruscan and medieval Perugia, a city of art, culture and nature. A city with important events which take place there throughout the year, for example the Umbria Jazz Festival (during the July month) and Eurochocolate (during the October month).

Perugia is the home of the University for Foreigners for Italian Language Studies, the oldest most prestigious institute of its kind in Italy.We are at only 15 minutes walking to the University
