|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Located in the highest piazza in the picturesque medieval town Trevi. The house is within walking distance of several restaurants, shops and services. There is almost no traffic in this part of town.
Once a chapel, now transformed in a historical loft.
The 17th century converted chapel has been very successfully restored into a modern luxury 3 bedroom mansion.
Palazzo Neri is a three storey structure with a roof terrace and there are stone steps from the ground floor to the roof top. The rooms are designed around a center atrium and each level has a view of the antique fresco surrounding the fireplace and painting.
We live in Belgium, we have two nice children in their twenties and we love to travel around Europe.
Rik Jouret purchased this villa in 2012
We crossed Italy from north to south and from east to west.
In Umbria we fell in love with the medieval villages on the hills. Especially we like the scenery around Trevi with the wine yards and the olive trees.
In Trevi, a small picturesque gem in the middle of Umbria, we found a palazzo for sale with historic background, but recently completely renovated with all modern conveniences. We fell in love with the place and … bought it.
The house was originally built as a home for the priest Antonio Costa (the same name as the little village Costa, next to Trevi) . The house is situated on the noble square Piazza Della Rocca , and is surrounded with beautiful palazzo’s.
The house was transformed in 1650 into a chapel for the congregation of Pilippo Neri. It is number 21 on the map of historical properties in Trevi.
During the last century the house was more like a ruin . In 1996 architect Falcinelli started to restore the house. In 2000 the restoration was finished.
The property is now a beautiful palazzo, with parts of the old chapel like a high atrium, ceilings ...It can be considered as a historical loft. The 17th century converted chapel has been very successfully restored into a modern luxury 3 bedroom mansion.
Our 4-day stay at Trevi was great and I have to say that this house made it very special! The house is located in the centre of Trevi. You will arrive on a nice plaza and when entering the house through the restored wooden door, you are immediately impressed by the high ceilings and the beautiful fresco. You can sit in the sofa for hours, just staring around you, enjoying the warm fire place and a nice glass of Italian wine. All the rooms are very clean and nicely decorated by the owners. You also have a fully equipped kitchen, but as there are some very nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, there was no need for us to use it. Something I will certainly not forget is the rooftop terrace. It is the perfect place to drink an aperitivo before going out. Even in December, the weather was still nice enough to use this terrace. And the inside of the house is as beautiful as the view you have outside on the roof terrace.
Beside all these nice words on the house, Trevi is perfectly located in Umbria to visit cities like Assisi, Spoleto, Montefalco,… You can find an overview of all the ‘to do’s and must sees’ in the kitchen. If you want some extra tips, you can always ask the owners. They are happy to help you anytime. One more thing, during your stay, please do not forget to drink an espresso or cappuccino in one of the local bars, meet with the locals and experience the relaxing Italian culture.
I would highly recommend this house to all my friends and family that want to visit the this beautiful part of Italy.
I can only describe this trip in one word: Amazing!
My husband and I were traveling with our parents and this house was perfect for us. Trevi is a nice, quieter town away from hoards of tourists. The house was as stated, fully stocked, clean and the washer/dryer was very nice for us. There is not an air conditioner but the house does have a small unit in the master bedroom that was useful at night. Most days we kept the windows and doors open. We had lots of passers by peak in and wonder about the house and the beautiful fresco. Moira at Cafe Roma was very nice and always available for questions. The owners are great and reply very quickly and offer great suggestions on things to do in the area. We went with Anne from annesitaly.com for tours in Spello and Assisi, highly recommend!! I hope to one day make it back to this beautiful town and we will definitely stay at this house again!!
I'm very grateful for the opportunity of living in that beautiful house! It was totally a pleasure. When I came inside the first time I was really touched - an amazing & huge living room, the rich interior and wonderful paintings, old-fashioned furnitures and a lot of gold adornment on the ceiling. I had the feeling that I was in heaven and when I saw all rooms and the balcony on the roof top - I totally felt in love :)
I could drink delicious wine and was watching at the beautiful views from the roof! During the breakfast I could say: „buongiorno” to the curious tourists who wanted to see beautiful paintings inside in our living room :) It were 7 days full of happiness, classical music, laughing & fun in a cozy and warm house!
I even didn't expect that I could live 7 days in such an amazing place :)
Thank you so much! smile :)
I'm sending my warmest regards, Olga ;)
Our jaws literally dropped when we walked into this renovated church. Beautifully done and even better than the photos. Everything we needed was provided including great information about local places to go and see. We were made so welcome by the owners Rik and Bernadette and Moira who looked after us during our stay. Trevi is a little treasure. It is so well placed to visit the whole Umbrian region. During July and August Trevi hosted a number of music and gastronomic events - a good time to visit. All together a great place to stay!
My wife, adult son and I stayed at Palazzo Neri for one week and had a truly memorable stay. The Palazzo is gorgeous and the facilities all first rate. We wish our permanent home were close to this nice.
Trevi is a cute hilltop town that provides a quiet escape, yet is close to all there is to see in Umbria. We loved our day trips to Assisi, Spoleto and Montefalcon. As well, Trevi has several nice restaurants where one can enjoy a nice, relaxed meal after a busy day.
Rik, the owner, was easy to work with and provided really nice guidance for what to see and do in the area.
We couldn't ask for a nicer stay.
This was a return visit for us, having stayed here two years ago. We hoped that everything was as perfect as we remembered, and we were happy to see that it definitely was. The town of Trevi is a jewel, set up on a hilltop that is covered with olive trees and grapevines.
The location of Palazzo Neri in the center of town makes you feel like you are a resident. The unit is equipped with everything you would need during a visit, so you don't have to worry about buying things like spices and oil that you will not finish during your stay. The owner has thought of everything. The minute you open the front door, you know that you are in a special place. Returning there at the end of busy days was a real pleasure.
Trevi is a lovely, welcoming town with excellent restaurants. The caffe on the piazza has the best cappuccino we have ever had! All of the towns in Umbria are worth a visit and a stroll around town. We enjoyed a drive to Ancona on the Adriatic through the mountains and numerous tunnels.
We would be happy to return to this place for a third time.
