Review 3981: Villa Aureli, Apartment


Review by Harold from France

apartments in a villa near Perugia, Umbria

, photo by


In April 2007 and May 2008, 1 week each time


We enjoyed two wonderful stays at the Villa Aureli. Its location is perfect, right in the heart of Umbria. The Villa is near Perugia, at the output of a village, close to many nice famous Umbrian cities.

Nearby Amenities

Five minutes walk to go the caffé, where we had cappuccino and "treccia" every morning. Supermarket and stores are five minutes drive. And many good restaurants in the neighborhood.

The House/Apartment

The luminous, sophisticated flat we stayed in, as well as the garden are exceptional. Situated at the second floor, with private entrance, we passed delicious moments in the beautiful living room, reading, looking at the fresco and the fantastic Piranese, or watching our daughter playing in the garden.


The garden is very beautiful and the sheep in the meadow facing the Villa were a lovely sight. We keep in mind the output of the lemon trees.


The bedrooms are marvelous, sunny and full of nice details, fresco, paintings, nice furniture. A mention for the exquisite green bathroom.


The kitchen is in a charming way a little old fashioned. But you will find all you need to cook, with pleasure, in the beautiful evening light. And if something is missing, do not hesitate to ask. The kitchen is a large room connected with a very nice dining room. The evening is a very peaceful time at Villa Aureli and the living room with the evening light is specially gracious so most of the time we have preferred to have diner at home.

Problems or Bonuses

The charming hospitality of all, the carried attention on our moving full daughter, the visit of the Villa and its history anecdotes.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

At our first stay at the Villa Aureli we have been received by Carla, the owner, she was just charming and friendly. Her son was also there and he organized for us a visit of the Villa, it was enthralling and exciting. The guard Quinto and his family are also nice and attentive. The second time Sperello was there too and received us. For our daughter and us, it was like we found a friendly house full of good memories.

Carla and Sperello probably speak excellent English, but as we are French we just can tell their French is perfect.

The website is very well done and give a good idea of the place. Except for the living room on the 2nd floor flat: on the photo it looks a little like a corridor, in reality it is fantastic, we spent amazing hours in this room.

As you will see in the visitor book, we are not the first to fall in love with the Villa and its charming owners.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We have been received with hospitality, in a way that was simple as well as charming and elegant. The Villa is a house that one leaves reluctantly, with the wish to come back.
