Review 5101: Villa Nuba, Apartment


Review by Janet C from Canada

apartments on the outskirts of Perugia, Umbria


July 16 - 29, 2011, 2 weeks


Villa Nuba is situated minutes from the lovely city of Perugia in the heart of Umbria. Nestled on the side of a hill, overlooking the lush countryside, the Villa Nuba offers guests privacy. I loved the area - very beautiful!

Nearby Amenities

The Villa Nuba is within walking distance of a grocery store, bakery, bank, bus stop and restaurants.

The House/Apartment

The villa is a refurbished farm house from the 1400s which has been transformed in three lovely guest suites. The owner and his parents live on site, which is very convenient.


The outside area is outstanding! We had the use of a beautiful pool (salt water), a covered BBQ area, as well as sitting areas. The property is beautifully landscaped.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The suite was furnished with quality furnishings, mostly antiques, as well as lovely art and pottery. The suite was spotlessly clean! There was lots of seating.


The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens and pillows. The suite had one large bathroom with a huge jacuzzi tub, shower, toilet, bidet and sink. We had a washing machine as well.


The kitchen was very usable and we cooked most of our meals at the villa. The dishes and utensils were more than adequate.

Problems or Bonuses

Only good surprises! We were surprised by how beautiful the location was, how conveniently located, and how hospitable our host was.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owner, Guissepe, speaks very good English, as does his wife, Elga. They were very helpful, gracious and friendly. The villa exceeded our expectations.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, I would absolutely stay there again, and I would unhesitatingly recommend the Villa Nuba to others.

Things to do in this area

There are lots of things to do in the general area. The city of Perugia is within walking distance or a short bus ride. It is a lovely walled city built in the in the 1200s which now has all the amenities of a modern community: restaurants, cafes, shops, museums. The beautiful town of Assisi is close by, as is Gubbio, Spoleto, and other charming towns. The area is famous for its wine, so a wine tour is definitely recommended.
