Photos and Description of this Perugia holiday villa

2 bedrooms,1 full bathroom,Jacuzzi,terrace, equipped kitchen,fireplace sleep 4+2

The Charming Villa Nuba apartments are part of a historic farmhouse dating back to the 15th century. The Villa is located amongst the idyllic Umbrian hills, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards but at the same time very close to the historic Etruscan and medieval centre of Perugia. The farmhouse has been recently and lovingly restored to create three luxury apartments complete with modern day comforts and furnished with antique family furniture. The Nuzzaci family always offer warm, friendly, Italian hospitality and are on-hand throughout your stay to ensure that all needs, desires, and whims are met! In fact the family resides in an adjacent wing of the Villa. The family’s goal is to satisfy all requests of every guest. So much so that a stay at Villa Nuba becomes even more than an already unforgettable experience, but a true authentic Italian experience. The Umbrian Experience.

About Us: The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments

- A Home Away from Home -

We are 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 )

Why Should You Choose Us?

-The Umbria Experience -

We believe that we are offering something that has been missing in central Italy: not your average farm holiday accommodation, nor an uninspiring flat, but a luxurious apartment in a villa in which the owners themselves reside, amid elegance, comfort and tradition, and accompanied by warm, friendly, family hospitality.

The owners live in an adjacent wing of the villa, a guarantee of a warm, friendly Italian welcome.

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.

I spent a fantastic holiday in Italy with my family this August. We decided to stay in Perugia for five days because the position of the city is perfect to visit Tuscany and Umbria alike.

We had a great time at Villa Nuba where Giuseppe Nuzzaci our host was welcoming us. He is a friendly, kind and funny young Italian who gave us many ideas what to see and where to eat. Giuseppe tried the famous Hungarian hot paprika sausages with us on the first night, that made a perfect match with the Italian Grappa… The Pinturicchio Apartment was as charming as described at the villa’s website and we had a great time there. We were cokking yummy dinners in the fully equipped kitchen and even though the weather did not permit a swim in the nice pool, our children tried the jacuzzi one night… It was good all of us could check the most important e-mails in the internet room. We devoted our first day to Perugia, then visited Gubbio, Arezzo, Siena and Cortona. Our guide book was the favourite Hungarian book of the family, Antal Szerb's Journey by Moonlight. In the book written in the 30s. The childhood friend of the protagonist became a monk in Gubbio in the monastery up on the hill, attached to the Basilica of St. Ubaldo. Thanks to Giuseppe we took the Funivia (cable car) to go up to the basilica, from where we so the most amazing view of the city and the scenery around. After 35 years we also went back to Arezzo, a dear town for us. In 1972 our Hungarian choir participated in the Concorso Polifonico and won two prizes in Arezzo. It was an exceptional feeling to show the places where we had sang decades earlier to our children.

In Siena, we had great Italian coffee on the Campo and were lucky to see the marble mosaic floor of the Cathedral, since the floor is only uncovered for two months a year. On our way back from Siena we decided to go to Cortona for dinner. I had already visited this beautiful town before and took my family to the Pizzeria Fufluns where I had had good lunches and dinners 5 years ago. We not only had great bruschetti and tasteful salmone affumicato in salsa di pepe rosa, but also happened to watch the Italy-Hungary football match, sitting in the middle of a group of Italians… We were happy about the outcome… (Scusi!)

We went up to Venice for two days from Perugia to finish a wonderful holiday.

I can only promise to go back to Perugia again and surely stay at Villa Nuba again, because a lot of nearby towns remained unseen for us: Spoleto, Assisi, Todi, Montepulciano etc. Since Lake Trasimeno is so close we would like to spend a day at the beach next time. Beautiful cities, nice villa, friendly host and the best pesto we ever tried, made by our host’s mother and given us by Giuseppe as a present when we said good-bye. We are thinking of our summer holiday a lot and can only recommend Villa Nuba to others. (But the Pinturicchio apartment is only free at times when we are not staying there….)

Paradise in Perugia

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nuba was more than we expected. Clean, spacious, charming apartment with a beautiful view from the balcony. The price was more than reasonable for this 2 bedroom suite and we felt like we were spoiled by the accommodations. We highly recommend this to anyone staying in Perugia.

A week in Villa Nuba

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Nuba for a week the Villa was excellent close enough to walk into Perugia and great location for visiting other towns within Umbria. Giuseppe was an excellent host and could not do more for us, ordering us pizza the first night, taking us to collect hire car and of course advising us of what to see and do around Umbria. The pool for relaxing after a morning of touring with a nice glass of red. Would love to go back and stay longer, everything was good about this stay

A beautiful place, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation got off to a perfect start at Villa Nuba in Perugia. Host Giuseppe Nuzzaci was the perfect guide to all things Umbrian. He has located the best restaurants in the area (not just in Perugia itself) and arranged discounts for his guests. Also the friendliest person we met on our trip, Giuseppe will do just about anything to help make your stay delightful. We were never disappointed by his recommendations.

Villa Nuba is a 15-minute walk from the closest gate through Perugia’s medieval walls; and another 10 minutes gets you to the central square. We tried the bus, but walking or an occasional taxi worked best. The “Pinturicchio” apartment was ideal for our family of four: two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with twin beds for the kids), spacious living room, modern bathroom and kitchen, and even a balcony overlooking the valley below the city. The pool was so refreshing after a hot summer day of walking cobble-stone streets. We would return without hesitation!

Charming and comfortable apartment in Perugia

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two daughters and I spent a delightful week at Villa Nuba. The apartment was spacious and comfortable for the four of us with two bedrooms, bathroom, a balcony, kitchen, and living/dining room. It was hot for most of the week and we really enjoyed the pool. What made the week very special was Giuseppe and his charming family. We did not have a car, but Giuseppe gave great directions and suggestions for things to see in Perugia and places to eat and with his gold card many of them offered a discount. We particularly liked Osteria La Lumera which was in walking distance up the hill. We also hired Giuseppe to take us to some of the local Medieval hill towns (Assisi, Spello, Gubbio and Orvieto). These were fantastic and we very much hope to return to Umbria soon. We will certainly stay at Villa Nuba when we do.

Best place to stay in Perugia

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of May this year in Perugia at “ The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments.” We had a wonderful time and we think Villa Nuba is the best place to stay in Perugia - a great value.

We rented the Bonfigli apartment. It was bright, spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated with many special details. It consisted of a bedroom with a king-sized bed; a large living room with dining table, cooking area and sitting space; and a bathroom with a WC, tub, shower, and washing machine. The bathroom was quite special - the tub is an oversized Jacuzzi spa-tub with mood lighting and the shower has multiple jets and a steam function. The kitchen was adequately equipped for cooking light meals. The seating area included a working fireplace. The outdoor spaces were wonderful.

Villa Nuba is very well located - about 1 mile from the historic city gates. It’s a very short walk to a grocery store, a wonderful bakery, two pizzeria, and the city bus stop. For most of our stay we did not have a car and we used the bus system all the time. It was easy, convenient, and inexpensive.

Perhaps the best feature of Villa Nuba is the owner/proprietor, Giuseppe, who lives with his family in the Villa. He worked above and beyond our expectations to ensure that we had the best possible experience in Perugia. When we arrived, he greeted us with a welcome basket of foods including pasta, pasta sauce, crackers, a bottle of wine and other snacks so we could settle in without having to go out to a restaurant or to the grocery store. Then he took us in his car on an orientation tour of central Perugia, pointing out things like the grocery, pharmacy, bus stops, best routes to the sites, etc. He was amazingly helpful in every way throughout our stay and I’m sure he’s the same to all of his clients.

Villa Niuba is the best place to stay in Perugia. We hope to get back there again soon.

Villa Nuba is the perfect location for exploring first-hand not only the marvels of the Umbrian city of Perugia, but also the many delightful Umbrian and Tuscan hill towns such as Assisi, Cortona, Gubbio and Todi. So many incredible places are just a close drive away!

The historic centre of Perugia is only about a 15 minutes walking


At only 150 meters there is the bus stop.

At only 3 km there is the central train station.

At only 2 km there is the central bus station that connects Perugia with all of Umbria and Italy.

At only 200-300 meters there are stores, markets, shops, cafe.

About Umbria and Perugia: 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.

A memorable experience can also be enjoyed in the dark, mysterious passageways of the old underground quarter, which run under the fortress at La Rocca Paolina, commissioned by Pope Paul III and built by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger in 1549.

More About Umbria and Perugia: Other attractions are the Etruscan monuments, the museums, the fresh Umbrian air, the myriad of restaurants where diners can savour the traditional dishes of Umbria and Italian cuisine in general, and the friendliness of the locals, who have long been accustomed to the presence of visitors from other countries as Perugia is the home of the University for Foreigners for Italian Language Studies, the oldest and most prestigious institute of its kind in Italy. 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).If you should choose to be a guest at The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments, you will experience a truly unforgettable holiday.

The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments, the only luxury villa vacation rentals for short and long periods in Perugia, Umbria.
