excellent in every way
The Villa Nuba experience is certainly the best one could hope for. The apartment is great, everything works as it should, and the location is fine as well. Most of all, we enjoyed the service of Giuseppe and his family, who made us feel at home the whole time. A really really recommendable place to stay while in Perugia.
Excellent stay in Umbria thanks to Villa Nuba
Excellent place, close to historical center of Perugia, both by car or walking, but located in a very quiet neighborhood.
The "Perugino" apartment hosted perfectly our family (parents and 4 big children), everything included, and Giuseppe always available for helping in case of required. (It was not required at all!).
As a summary, we fully recommend staying in Perugia! and specially in Villa Nuba.
Brilliant property in the Umbrian hills
Like others, we booked Villa Nuba because of the good reviews we had read. We arrived at Perugia station with our two adult daughters and Guiseppe was kind enough to pick us all up, not before showing us the areas to shop, the best pizza restaurants, other good restaurants, and other highlights of Perugia and surrounding regions. The Del Pinturicchio villa was modern, warm, quiet and comfortable for four, with exceptional views across the Umbrian hills and valleys. After hectic travelling through central Europe it was the perfect destination to wind down for Christmas, with an open fire if desired and a basketful of groceries supplied by Guiseppe and Elga to welcome us. There is also the opportunity to have a spa in the bathroom to relax further. It's obvious that we loved the apartment, the area, the owners, the views and the amenities and would like to thank Guiseppe and Elga for a terrific opportunity to relax and catch up with our family, who had been elsewhere, and for even organising a taxi for us at six o'clock in the morning. We had a great time and hope to be back one day, ciao, Michael, Teresa, Laura and Hannah.
Best place to stay in Perugia
We booked at Villa Nuba because of the reviews a]we had read and discovered all we read was true. We had a great experience and were really well looked after by Giuseppe and his lovely family. The apartment had absolutely everything we needed and we were in a safe and central location which made access to Perugia and the nearby hilltop towns easy.
Visit Perugia and stay at Villa Nuba!

Our favorite "home away from home"
This was the second time we've stayed at Villa Nuba. Need I say that we love it? There aren't enough superlatives for describing it. We stayed again in the del Bonfigli apartment, which is beautifully furnished, and completely comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied for light cooking. The lovely gift basket provided to guests on arrival provides the first night's and next mornings meals. The grocery store a short walk away has everything you could want for preparing meals in your apartment. The bed is divine (I never sleep well in other beds - except this one), and the linens, heavy Italian cotton, a luxury. Guiseppe and Elga are the most gracious hosts, going out of their way to make guests welcome and ensure that their stay is a good one. They provide tips on restaurants, sights, shopping and many other things.
When you stay, get the Perugia walking tour guide at the tourist info center in the centro storico. It provides a guided tour of the five different neighborhoods of old Perugia, each of them quite distinct. The guide provides history and background on the churches, towers, steps, palazzos and other sights. It will give you a feel for the beautiful city that you won't get from just enjoying the Corso Vannuci.
Travel through Umbria - the most beautiful part of Italy. The mountains and walled medieval cities, the soft light, the deep greens of the forests and silvery green of the olive groves playing against the yellow fields - you won't find this kind of beauty any where else! Umbrian people are friendly, helpful, warm, and happy to have visitors. The restaurants are outstanding, some of them small places mostly serving local people. We had the most amazing meals of our Italian trip in Umbria.
We'll be back - to see more of Umbria, to sit and watch the gorgeous sunsets, to taste the excellent foods, and to see our hosts/friends Guiseppe and Elga (and Lorenzo).

Fantastic Vacation Rental In Perguia, Umbria
This vacation rental far exceeded our expectations. It was modern, immaculately cleaned and the grounds were well maintained. The apartment included the amenities of TV, Wi-Fi, Laundry, fully equipped kitchen with a Dish Washer, BBQ, Pool, use of the herb garden as well as excellent parking. Nothing was lacking. Giuseppe, the owner, provided superbly outstanding customer service during our stay. When we got lost driving to the apartment, he came and found us and showed us the way. During our orientation to the property, he orientated us to Perugia by pointing out attractions on the local map. He then followed this up with a brief tour by car. We were give a welcome basket which included provisions for the a dinner the first night as well as breakfast the next morning. The apartment was with in easy walking distance of restaurants, grocery store, ATM, bakery, Bus Stop, and a main gate to the city of Perugia. Using our apartment as a home base we took day trips to assisi, Deruta, and Gubbio. We spent one day taking a cooking class in Perugia. Giuseppe arranged a special guided tour to Paolo Bea organic winery, which was one of the high lights of our trip. I highly recommend this apartment to any one who is looking to have a relaxing Italian vacation with the opportunity to be exposed the real every day Italian culture.

Best Place to Stay in the Best area of Italy
Villa Nuba is an excellent choice for many reasons. Giuseppe and Elga are extremely helpful and very friendly. They helped to make our stay an enjoyable experience. The apartment was clean and comfortable and well-equipped. The swimming pool and seating areas provide relaxing (and quiet) places to read and be in the sun, and to look at the gorgeous view from the apartments. The surroundings are beautiful; it overlooks hills and olive groves. The property is well away from the main road, so there is very little noise. Grocery store, pharmacy, excellent pizzerias and café, and a bank with an aTM are nearby. Within easy reach to the historic center of Perugia.
Umbria is the best place to experience Italy. I have been to Rome, Venice, Florence, Milan, Lake Como and several places in between in Italy, and Umbria is by far the best. It offers a rich history, beautiful hills and forests, and the best food anywhere. Perugia is the place to be located, given its access to public transportation for trips to the hill towns in Umbria and to other places in Italy. Many people think that Tuscany is the place to be, but in our experience, Umbria offers much more. Perugia is a wonderful city with several self-guided walking tours of neighborhoods that are interesting and beautiful. It has wonderful museums and churches, stunning architecture, great restaurants (some of which give discounts to Villa Nuba guests), and great music and entertainment. Since we did not have a car, we relied on public transportation, and were able to easily make trips to assisi, Spoletto, Spello, Todi, Orvieto, and several other hill towns. We love Umbria and Perugia.
Villa Nuba is the best place to stay in Perugia, which is the best place to be based in Umbria, which is the best place by far in Italy. So I can highly recommend Villa Nuba. It greatly enhanced our vacation in Umbria.
Villa Nuba was a lucky find. We really enjoyed our 8 nights stay here.
The apartment (Perugino) was beautifully presented, comfortable and well equipped with magnificent views across Perugia. Our boys enjoyed the pool and playing with Pato the cat.
Giuseppie was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble for him.
Thankyou Giuseppie for making our stay so special and sharing your friendship with us.
A lstunning home away from home.
We were weary after a long day's travel so it was wonderful to drive through Villa Nuba's impressive gates. It was even more wonderful when Giuseppie introduced himself and showed us to our apartment. Our apartment, Del Perugino, was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It felt as if we had walked into a five star establishment. A basket of breakfast and dinner supplies provided a warm welcome, as did other touches in the apartment.
Giuseppe is more than an owner. He is a host in the true spirit of the word. He was warm, friendly and nothing was too much trouble to ensure our family's stay was very special and comfortable. His information tour is something other hosts could learn from. We had originally booked for five nights but decided to stay eight. For our boys the pool and Pato, the cat, had something to do with their decision. For us, we felt at home and amongst friends with Giuseppie, Elga and Lorenzo. We wish them all the best and hope we can share their slice of heaven soon. Thank you for such beautiful memories.
Amazing stay in beautiful place!!
What can I say more that has not already been said about Villa Nuba? We stayed a week and our apartment was quaint, modern, clean and relaxing. Giuseppe and Elga were warm , kind and extremely helpful! Giuseppe is a true ambassador for his city of Perugia and for Umbria region. He is passionate about making sure your expectations are exceeded and you leave with great memories about your time spent there. I would not hesitate recommending this place to anyone! Thank you Giuseppe, Elga and Lorenzo!! for a memorable Honeymoon stay!
"Charming" is the word!
We were happy to arrive at Villa Nuba and sad to leave. My wife and I had a wonderful time during our holiday there. We stayed for two weeks..
First, the owners, Giuseppe and his wife Elga, who live on site, treated us like family. Nothing was too much for them. On our arrival, we welcomed by a basket with wine and local produce. Things to get us started before any real shopping was done. The wine was delicious and any strain remaining from our drive to Perugia was relaxed! We were given a tour of the facilities followed by a short tour of the area around Villa Nuba. Giuseppe pointed out the recommended places to shop and eat, some of which offered discounts to his guests.
Villa Nuba is very close to the breathtakingly beautiful old town of Perugia. A walk there takes only about 15 minutes, and the bus is just around the corner for those not wishing to walk. Giuseppe also has an arrangement with the local taxi company, which we also found most valuable during our stay.
Secondly, our accommodation in the apartment - bearing the name "Del Bonfigli' left nothing to be desired. We had to smile when we saw that we could make coffee in the morning in either the traditional Italian way, in the German "filter" way or with a Nespresso maker (sans capsules, of course)! And of course, the local supermarket, just a few minutes away, sells "instant coffee" for the less discerning!
The kitchen was well equipped. We had dinner in the evening either at one of the local eateries or on the open terrace adjoining our rooms.
The swimming pool was total relaxation with its sparkling water, loungers and covered "gazebo" for an afternoon of relaxation.
Although we also had a television, there was so much to do that we never got around to switching it on!
Villa Nuba is ideally placed for tourists visiting Perugia or for those wishing to use Perugia as a base to tour around Umbria.
We enjoyed it thoroughly. We have already recommended it to our friends.
Perfect place to relax
My family enjoyed the stay in Villa Nuba. Svimmingpool is perfect.
Perfect escape...Italy at its best
he appartment is furnished with a lot of care and love to detail. All is kept clean and comfortable. The fully-furnished kitchen allows everything from just grabbing some snacks to preparing a full meal. On the first day, a welcome package expected us in order to free us from the neccessity to buy groceries after the journey. As a special service, Giuseppe showed us around to find locations such as the closest supermarket, bakery, parking, etc. Having him and his family living nearby is of special advantage as you always have someone to ask for support or advice. We especially appreciated his efforts in selecting good restaurants (with special offers for Villa Nuba guests).
The swimming pool is kept clean all time and allows a nice view over the landscape...a perfect place to escape, relax and enjoy!
A place to recommend
We stayed in Villa Nuba for two weeks. It was a great place for us adults, and just perfect for the four children. The children called the apartment home the whole stay in Perugia. The kids loved the swimmingpool and they still talk about Guiseppe and Elga and Lorenzo. The apartment was nice. Good space and the beds were good. It was easy to go to the centrum of Perugia. There was a good pizzaria nearby, but mostly we made our own food in the nice kitchen, which had good equipment. We highly recommendt Villa Nuba to other familys!!! :)
We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Nuba in May 2013 and although the weather was horrendously cold/rainy, we were greeted by the warm Giuseppe at the train station wearing his white cap (although due to an email typo, we were looking for someone holding a white "cup"!). He gave us an informative tour of the city on our way to the accomodation and helped at the supermarket to find some (strong!) local wine and ham to start off! The villa was cosy and homely with a nice welcome basket of goodies.
Even though we caught the bus a few times, I would also recommend getting a car as the walk to/from the bus stop (whilst not too far) was not that convenient. I did manage to get completely lost trying to walk back to the apartments one day, so I don't suggest you attempt this as the medieval roads and tunnel under the city can be very confusing! When we did hire a car, we made day trips to the nearby towns which were brilliant! Giuseppe helped us with the car hire which was much appreciated! The pool area looked amazing, it was a shame the weather was too cold to enjoy the full surroundings, including garden and pretty patio area. His wife, Elga, is also lovely and always willing to help. We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Nuba and would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing stay in beautiful Umbria!
Ciao and thank you Giesuppe!
Stay at Villa Nuba
An excellent choice! My husband and I spent a week at Villa Nuba at the end of June and loved it. It's location makes it a very convenient choice to visit the surrounding hilltop villages in Umbria. We booked the Del Perugino apartment, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, and found it to be very spacious, modern and extremely comfortable.
Giuseppe and his wife Elga, our hosts, are very hospitable and knowledgeable and always on hand to offer help. Giuseppe took us on a tour of Perugia to help us get acquainted with the area and all it has to offer. It definitely felt like our home away from home.

Loved our stay at Villa Perugiono Holiday Rental
We spent a glorious week in Perugia thanks to Giuseppe and Elga, our hosts. Both were warm, friendly and helpful. They ensured that we had a fantastic time by checking in on us at just the right times--when we needed it. The villa was wonderful, comfortable and fabulous location. We could walk into the heart of the city in just minutes and not worry about parking. Getting out of the city was easy access to the major roads. We reviewed many apartments before selecting this one and we are glad we did. We would go back there again and again!
Villa Nuba...the place to stay
Prior to leaving home and while liaising with Villa Nuba regarding a weeks stay there I came to the conclusion that Giuseppe, the person with whom I was corresponding with, was a little old Italian man. Well I got that wrong. The reality is quite the opposite. Villa Nuba is a short distance from the old city of Perugia, within walking distance if you like walking or by bus which is a couple hundred metres from the gate. The apartments are well appointed and modern with a pleasing view over some rolling valleys. The property is well maintained offering a very inviting swimming pool and outdoor area, unfortunately for us we were just a little ahead of the swimming season. During our stay we visited many of the medieval hilltop villages and including Perugia on many occasions. Where to go, what to see, where to eat, where to shop, where not to shop or eat was made all that much easier by inside information...from Giuseppe. It can often be the case that while travelling a good time is dependent upon the people you meet...well we didn't have to look any further than our host, he made our stay that much more enjoyable. We did get to meet his beautiful wife Elga and gorgeous son Lorenzo and also mama and papa. By the time we left we felt more like family members that guests. Would I recommend Villa Nuba...sure I would...highly recommend it!!!

The perfect place to stay in Umbria
I chose Villa Nuba as my place to stay in Umbria after reading comments on Tripadvisor. I can say adamantly that it has lived up to everyone. No comment was exaggerated, Villa Nuba is by far the best place I have stayed at on this or any other trip. It is as beautiful as other people have commented. Words that come to mind are peaceful, private, comfortable, relaxing, convenient, ambient. So close to the centre of Perugia and yet you feel like you are in the middle of the umbrian countryside. The thing that really sets Villa Nuba apart is the service. Nothing is too difficult for the hosts, they go out of their way to give you the best stay they can. In making arrangements to come to Villa Nuba I mentioned to Giuseppe that I was first staying in a hotel for a couple of days (pre-booked, no cancellation). He offered to come and pick me up from the station and drop me at the hotel, then four days later picked me up from the hotel to go to Villa Nuba. For those of you who know Perugia and its myriad of escalators, this was a godsend for someone with luggage. During my three week stay Giuseppe took me in his car and helped me post things home (Australia), get air tickets and even a good deal on a mobile phone. I have never stayed anywhere else where the owner has gone to this much trouble for a guest. I am travelling alone and Villa Nuba made me feel like I had company as well as a safe and secure environment. All my friends are planning to add it to their itinerary next time they are in Italy and you should too. There's also a Villa Nuba gold card which will get you discounts and deals around town at shops and restaurants, even a free espresso with your pastry order at the local pasticceria on the walk home. Nothing better than to come back after a long day "touristing", sit in your own courtyard with a glass of wine and listen to the local church bells toll. 10/10 Giuseppe.
Villa Nuba in Perugia
Giuseppe was a wonderful host. He spent time with us on our arrival to share all his information and love of his city and the region.
The Villa was very comfortable with wonderful views. Excellent bathroom, kitchen and bed rooms. There were no negatives, even the 25 minute walk to the city of Perugia was good exercise each day.
I would definitely go back and spend more time at Villa Nuba with Giuseppe and his wife Helga.
Villa Nuba-Perugian Paradise!
Our stay in Villa Nuba in Perugia was the highlight of our Italian holiday. Hosts Guiseppe and Elga (and new son Mister Lorenzo) were delightful. Guiseppe met us at the station, showed us around Perugia and delivered us back to the station at the end of our stay-hassle free! We elected not to hire a car and travelled everywhere by bus and train. Guiseppe has identified local restaurants/Osteria that have authentic Italian cuisine and provide a discount via a "Villa Nuba Gold Card"-we tried all his suggestions and the food and prices were fantastic. Guiseppe was also able to advise on Italian wines (some of the whites are challenging to decipher)and the Umbrian Reds are very good. The accomodation (in a renovated 600 year old Villa) was spacious, had all modern facilities and was very comfortable. As a bonus if you opened the door to catch the morning sun, sometimes we got a visit from Parto a beautiful schmoosey Tabby Cat! The location is just outside Perugia and is a beautiful setting and is a real home away from home. We will certainly be going back!
Number one place to stay in Perugia
We stayed a wonderful week in the lovely Villa Nuba apartments. Guiseppe and Elga were the perfect hosts.(As well as Mr Lornezo - the perfect baby). From picking us up at the station, the orientation tour of Perugia, not to mention, the supermarket stop to get our supplies and the great welcome basket of goodies they do everything well. We stayed in the apartment del Bonfigli which was well suited to our needs and was lovely and so comfortable and we really felt at home. Guiseppe's attention to detail is what makes the stay so terrific. Even their cat made us feel at home. We really felt that we were living the Italian life while we were there. We couldn't recommend any place higher than Villa Nuba for your stay in Perugia. What it says on the website is just as it is - Perfect
"Ciao to the Friendliest & Most Charming Host"
Villa Nuba in Perugia was one of several destinations during our travels in Italy, but the only villa we rented. Hands down (without close comparison), Giuseppe was the friendliest and most charming host we had the privilege of meeting! With warm hospitality, he put himself at our disposal.
Nuba is as charming as it has been described - nestled on the mountain side surrounded by willowy olive trees in a quiet neighborhood. Our accommodations in del Perugino were very clean, comfortable and conveniently located for our daily trips into the old city of Perugia. Giuseppe offered many recommendations for sights and dining. Not a one was off the mark! We explored the region of Umbria and experienced the treasures of its medieval history and beautiful countryside! We fell in love with Orvieto! The views of the mountains and the river along the rural route were simply gorgeous and the city is beyond all expectations! Italy is a very beautiful country with an endless bounty of rich heritage.
Nothing supersedes the true "sense of welcome" when you visit someone's home (country). Giuseppe did more than help us feel genuinely welcomed when we arrived...As we said our good-byes, Giuseppe made us feel we had made a friend for life!
I migliori auguri alla famiglia Nuzzaci!
Home away From Home
You're already coming to Perugia, so you know all the wonders of Umbria--the phenomenal food, the beautiful countryside, the bordering on ridiculous number of charming medieval hill towns--but there's really no better place to make your camp than the Villa Nuba. Giuseppe is, as all have said in previous reviews, a wonderful, helpful, friendly host. He ordered us pizza on our tired and hungry arrival, told us the best places to eat in town (and as a food tourist of some experience, I'll vouch for his good taste!), and acquainted us not only with the villa itself, but with the surrounding area and showed us the best way to walk into the city center (which is a pleasant, easy walk of fifteen minutes or so). The pool wasn't set up yet (we were there on the tail end of winter, and it was still cold), but it looks like more or less the best place in Italy to relax.
The apartments themselves are as comfortable as being at home, with a well-appointed kitchen, fireplace (with a big basket of wood already stocked when you arrive), comfortable beds, and a wonderful view of the valley below Perugia. It's also convenient to assisi, Spelo, Todi, and more or less anywhere else in Umbria--if you ask, Giuseppe will recommend which towns you would most like to visit based on your predilections... do you like wine? Food? Art? Architecture? Giuseppe will tell you where to go and how to get there.
I've stayed many places all over Italy in the last few years, but this was one of the few places I've ever felt at home. Can't recommend highly enough.
Charming villa Nuba
Charming and great location . Owners are most helpful and friendly
A home away from home!
Our family spent a wonderful three days at Villa Nuba and it was the best experience every. This was the first time using a vacation rental, and we will never go back to staying in hotels! Giuseppe is an outgoing and warm host! He made us feel right at home at his Villa. He came up with a huge list of places to visit, recommendations on places to eat and even helped us track down some Truffle vendors, simply amazing! We will definitely stay here again!
Wonderful hosts, magical visit
We spent an amazing 3 weeks at Villa Nuba as part of an extended stay in Italy, and it was one of the best experiences of any of our trips. Giuseppe is a wonderful host - warm and friendly and enthusiastic about Perugia and the Umbrian area. He met us at the train station and we immediately felt welcomed and in good hands. We had a quick tour of Perugia (including the best chocolate and gelato shop in town!) before he took us to get supplies knowing that the stores would be closed the next day.
We stayed in both Pinturicchio and the smaller Bonfigli, and found both apartments very well-appointed, spacious and a joy to return to after a day busy with sightseeing (loved the Jacuzzi!). We especially enjoyed having wine in the evening on the terrace of Pinturicchio with the spectacular view. The kitchens of both apartments are well-equipped - we fixed several meals and enjoyed eating dinner under the gazebo next to the pool. In fact, the apartments are so lovely and comfortable that we decided to relax at the Villa instead of sightseeing on several occasions.
Perugia is a fantastic base for exploring Umbria, both by train and car. Giuseppe has great advice on places to explore - one of our best lunches ever was in Montefalco, a town we would have missed altogether except for Giuseppe's guidance. Elga offers Italian lessons and is a superb Italian teacher - it was wonderful to be able to work with her. We also enjoyed the very friendly people at the Cerquiglini Pastticceria, a short walk from the Villa, where we stopped most mornings for cappuccino and pastries.
It's the people we meet that add magic to travel, and Giuseppe and Elga are the magic in Perugia! We grew fond of both of them and plan to return again to meet the baby...
Giuseppe - Thanks again to both of you for a wonderful stay at the Villa Nuba. We survived our bike trip in apulia, and it was fabulous - just as beautiful as you said it would be.

It really is charming!
This is a lovely villa on the outskirts of Perugia, with beautiful views across the Umbrian countryside. We stayed in del Pinturicchio, one of 3 apartments on the property. The apartment is spacious and wonderfully Italian. Very comfortable beds, great saltwater pool, well-equipped kitchen, mature fig tree just outside the kitchen door, jacuzzi bathtub - it was all we could have asked for. The villa is a short, entertaining walk to the nearby shops and the old town of Perugia. Hosts Guiseppe and Elga, Luigi and Bruna live in a separate house on the same property. They are very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. On arrival, Guiseppe drove us around Perugia to show us places to visit and shop at. Perugia is full of amazing historic architecture and character, but is also very laid back, friendly and relatively inexpensive. There are good train and bus connections to other destinations in Umbria such as assisi (which is well worth the trip) and to Rome. Within Perugia, there is also a good bus service, which can be quite exciting at times, given the narrow, winding roads. However, we didn't get out to see as much as we planned, because it was so pleasant hanging around the pool at the villa. We were there in September and the mornings showed signs of approaching autumn but the days were lovely and warm.
A fantastic week!
We were lucky enough to spend a week at Villa Nuba the first week of October. What a wonderful place! We were in del Pinturicchio. It is a very large 2 bedroom with a fantastic terrace and view. When we arrived Giuseppe gave us a tour of the area in his car and showed us places to eat, shop and where to park, very informative and helpful. He also has made arrangements with some of the local businesses and resaturants to provide a discount for his guests. You simply show them your Vila Nuba gold card for the discount, what a great service. The apartment was so charming and comfortable and the welcome basket is a very nice touch and not all that common.
Perugia is a stunning city! It is easy to walk to the town centre or to the bakery, Magic pizza (fabulous) or grocery store. Parking on the street outside the city walls was much easier at night, we always seemed to find something. From the street it is just a short to walk to the restaurants or shops. Make sure to also see some of the nearby towns such as Spello, Spoleto, Montefalco and assisi. They are absolutely beautiful and so full of history.
Villa Nuba was one of the best weeks we have had and it is very much because of the excellent service that Giuseppe gives. He is genuine and very passionate about where he lives. We did not get to meet his lovely wife Elga, so it will have to wait until our next visit. Thanks Giuseppe for all you did to make our week so great! Bob & Patricia.

Perfect apartment, Perfect Location, Great Owners
My wife and I recently enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa Nuba in Perugia (September 15-30, 2012).
The apartment and Grounds: Del Bonfigli was the perfect size for a couple and was very well appointed with everything we needed for a two week stay. We enjoyed cooking many of our own Italian meals in the kitchen and also used the outdoor grill when we craved some good steaks. Each morning we would enjoy our breakfast out on the beautiful patio area and many nights we would finish there with a glass of wine. The grounds at Villa Nuba are also very nice. The pool area is well maintained and in a beautiful setting. The salt water was a bit cool given it was late September but very refreshing. I was in the pool nearly every day, and then would dry off under the warm Umbrian sun. We would essentially tour an Umbrian city one day and then rest, relax and hang out at the pool the next making for a great combination. Because of the secluded nature of Villa Nuba, you very much feel you are out in the countryside but are only a 5 minute walk to a couple of grocery stores and cafes. Only a twenty minute walk to central Perugia.
The Owners: All the comments you read on Giuseppe and Elga are true. Such a nice couple and so very helpful. We consider ourselves to be pretty self sufficient travelers and enjoy exploring on our own but anytime at all we needed advice or help they were right there. Upon arriving Giuseppe handed us a list of restaurants, not just in Perugia but other towns and we were not disappointed. Frankly, a couple of them we ate at more than once and always used the "Villa Nuba Gold Card" which provided a nice discount at these establishments. Giuseppe and Elga are not absentee owners; they live on the property and are there to make sure you are having a special visit to their beloved Umbria.
We are return visitors to Villa Nuba and as was the case last time, we were not disappointed. Everything and more was on offer this time with the lovely gazebo just outside our apartment, near the pool area. The pool is wonderful to relax and play with the kids after visiting nearby towns in Umbria. We stayed in the larger of the apartments and the cleanliness and attention to detail, along with the nice touches of the welcome basket made it very special. Guiseppe and his lovely wife, Elga, were very welcoming and on hand should we need anything. Perugia is a beautiful town and surrounded by many medieval towns, most with 10-50km so the driving is manageable. We loved venturing out each day, to return to Villa Nuba to relax, enjoy the leafy surrounds and simply have a wonderful start to our Italian adventure. Our daily walk took us to the wonderful pasticceria for coffee and pastries and who can fault Pizza Magic nearby for their wood fired pizzas. All in all another great family holiday and we hope we get back there again.
Une belle semaine
Une semaine passée dans une résidence très agréable et dans une superbe région : Perugia, Assisi , Gubbio... Un grand appartement meublé avec goût et très bien équipé. La piscine pour se rafraîchir après une grande chaleur! Vraiment un séjour pour de bons souvenirs.
L'accueil est par ailleurs excellent ( allant jusqu'à nous emmener voir les endroits pour faciliter notre séjour) et nos hôtes étaient très gentils et agréables.
Delightful and memorable holiday in Umbria
I have never given 5 stars for an overseas review but this one merits it
We made a last minute booking because there was a cancellation so travel was expensive but does not need to be if booked in advance. We travelled to Rome by Ba and then took the trains which was an adventure (but very cheap and all booked from the UK)-three trains when apparently there is a direct train from Rome. With hindsight should have hired a car in Rome as driving in Italy is pretty easy. Returned from Perugia via Ryan air which was surprisingly simple and a fast Stanstead Express got us back to South London in an hour and 20 minutes.
The apartment was clean, spacious and very well equipped. The location is great, walking distance to the main town and some shops within a 10 minute walk. A car is essential to get around to see the sights in the neighbouring towns. The pool is lovely and provides some relief from the sun.
Elga and Guiseppe are fantastic warm and welcoming hosts and ensured that are stay was a fantastic and memorable
I highly recommend this as a great place to have a relaxing stay- we are thinking of returning out of season to explore the great towns in cooler temperatures as we experienced the hottest temperatures in 20 years
Charmng and Relaxing
Spent a week with a friend here and we had a lovely time. The apartments are clean, spacious and charming and the pool area is relaxing and quiet. The owners were helpful, friendly and gracious. Giuseppe and Elga provided a lovely welcome, informed us of the area, gave us a mini tour of the area and organized taxis as we needed them. The welcome basket was a lovely touch. There is a supermarket within walking distance and regular buses into the town. I would highly recommend these apartments.

A little piece of heaven in Umbria
Villa Nuba provided an excellent place to stay while visiting Italy. We stayed for four wonderful weeks in the smallest of the three apartments, which was perfect for two people. The apartment was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished, and perfectly comfortable. The patio, swimming pool and cabana provided beautiful places to relax and to hang out with other guests and with Giuseppe and Elga, the couple who own and manage the place. Without a doubt, Giuseppe and Elga are the friendliest, nicest and most helpful people we have stayed with. Giuseppe has excellent recommendations for restaurants and is more than willing to help out with directions, calling taxis (even at 6 in the morning), and just helping you understand the sights and history of Perugia and the hill towns of Umbria.
Villa Nuba is located on the northeast edge of Perugia in a scenic area with hills, farms, vineyards, and olive groves. Gorgeous views! Giuseppe met us at the train station when we arrived and took us first on a quick tour of the area. Everything we needed - groceries, pharmacy, pizza and bakery - were located closeby. We used public transportation while in Italy and found it very easy to do from Villa Nuba. Mostly, though, we walked into town, which takes about 25 minutes. It's a bit of a climb, but if you like good exercise walking with beautiful surroundings of old historic buildings with frequent views of fields and mountains, Perugia is the place to be. From Perugia, we found it easy to travel out of town with good access to buses and trains to Umbrian hill towns, Florence, Rome and Venice.
Villa Nuba was much, much better than even the web site shows. It was like a little bit of heaven that Giuseppe and Elga have created for their guests. It is by far the best living experience we have ever had in our travels. Villa Nuba has our absolute highest recommendation. We will stay there again without hesitation the next time we come to Umbria.
A home a way from home
My wife and I just gor home from our trip to Perugia Italy and our wonderful stay at the Villa Nuba. Our host Giuseppe Nuzzaci could not have been more accommodating. From the moment we arrived at the Villa he was there to help, he drove us around Perugia to show us were to shop, how to get to the center of town, were to park and what restaurnats to eat at. He also presented us with with a Villa Nuba gold card that allowed us discounts at some of the better restaurants and shops. We stayed in the two bedroom two bath Villa that was just plain terrific, a full kitchen, king size bed in the big bedroom, wifi and TV. Every day when we made our daily plans Giuseppe was there to help with directions or suggestions it was like having our own personal concierge. All in all a great value and a great experience.
"I left my heart in Perugia, Italy!"
In april my friends and I spent 2 delightful weeks in Perugia, Italy. The crowning glory of our visit was our stay at Villa Nuba, located in Perugia. The property itself is lovely, our apartment in the Villa was charming and well appointed and the view from our patio was breathtaking. While it was a bit tricky to find Villa Nuba once we arrived in Perugia by car, it was worth the twists and turns and back tracking once we finally found it. Perugia is a wonderful, medieval city and it is also nicely situated for taking day trips out of the city. We visited assisi, Spelo, Deruta, Torgiano, and Gubbio. Returning to Villa Nuba after a day of exploring was so nice and relaxing. An important part of the charm of Villa Nuba is the delightful young couple who own and operate it. Giuseppe and Elga made us feel so welcome and cared for, we truly hated to leave them. They were attentive without being intrusive; they gave us suggestions for restaurants and areas to visit along with directions to and from. We will long remember them with fondness and warmth. I/we highly recommend a visit to the Umbria region of Italy and recommend Villa Nuba as your home base. A, B and J from the USa
Bel appartement à l'écart du bruit et pourtant proche de toutes
Appartement spacieux, lumineux, très agréable. Pratique pour ne pas se gêner, un petit salon de toilette attenant à la salle de bain, et le wifi libre sans avoir à se rendre dans la pièce commune. Du salon, vue sur un jardin bien aménagé et sur les collines environnantes. Le matin, réveil au chant des oiseaux, impression d'être en pleine campagne. Situation stratégique pour les visites : 20 bonnes minutes à pieds jusqu'au centre historique de Pérouge (possibilité de s'y rendre en bus), arrêt de bus en direction de Gubbio à 200 mètres de la location. Propriétaire particulièrement prévenant et serviable, disposé à aider ceux qui arrivent avec les transports en commun.
Home away From Home
My husband and I spent three weeks the end of March, early april in a Villa Nuba apartment with another couple. We had plenty of room for the four of us with two bedrooms/two baths. The apartment had a nice kitchen and we were able to fix several meals there. The weather was very nice while we were there so we were able to BBQ. The owner and his wife live on the property, which was great, especially if we had any problems. Giuseppe was very helpful, especially giving us great tips on places to visit in Umbria. We had a car for part of our stay and saw about 22 small towns all around Umbria. Then we took the train, which was also fun. We figured out how to take the bus to the train station. The bus stop was a short 5 minute walk from our place. We also walked a lot. We loved Perugia, which was centrally located and seeing that area of Italy was
My husband and I spent 6 days in the Pinturicchio apartment in Villa Nuba with another couple in the middle of March. It did not disappoint. The location is very convenient both for visiting Perugia and for accessing the highways to get to other towns in Umbria. We made day trips to assisi, Todi, Gubbio (this one does require about an hour of nausea-inducing travelling round a mountain to get to the town, but it is worth the ride) and Lake Trasimeno during our stay there.
The apartment actually looks nicer than it does in the pictures on their website. I think it has been fairly recently refurbished, everything is very clean and comfortable, and Giuseppe the owner has really made the effort to provide guests with every necessity. Beds were very comfortable though pillows were quite flat, but that seems to be commonplace in Italy. It was too cold for us to use the pool and bbq pit but we enjoyed watching the lovely sunset over Perugia from our terrace each evening - it was like having our own picture postcard view every day.
Giuseppe is immensely friendly and helpful - when we arrived, he spent almost an hour with us just showing us around the flat, teaching us how to work appliances, and showing us on a map where we could go both for meals in Perugia as well as for day trips in Umbria. When the toaster caused the electricity in the flat to trip one morning, we called Giuseppe on his mobile and the problem was fixed almost immediately. He also took the toaster away in order to replace it with a new one. He is genuinely anxious to improve the villa (not that it needs much improvement I think!) and make it one of the best in its field, and he asked us for our feedback at the end of the stay and earnestly wrote down all suggestions, promising to look into them and implement them. I thought that was a fantastic attitude that more b&b;/hotel owners should adopt.
Warana, Queensland, Australia
Loved Villa Nuba. Giuseppe met us at the train and made us feel very welcome. Stopped at the supermarket to help us get some groceries for our stay. Giuseppe was so helpful. Spoke english very well. The villa was in a perfect position...very quiet, wonderful views over the Perugian countryside...and, had a great fireplace!! Supermarket very close, bus stop very close! If we wanted to travel by train to other hilltop towns, it was 15 mins from Villa Nuba to the train station via bus and mini metro...very convenient. I will be back!!
A lovely place to stay
It is certainly an ideal place to stay in Perugia, with easy access to the city center , amenities , as well as to other small towns around Perugia.
The apartment is well equipped and cosily decorated. Just make you feel like home.
The owner is very kind and helpful.

Lovely New Years vacation in Perugia
My husband and I stayed at the Villa Nuba apartments for a week over
New Years recently. We had a great time. The apartment (Bonfigli)
was lovely, peaceful and comfortable. Our host, Giuseppe, was very
welcoming and helpful. He drove us to and from the train station,
gave us a very good orientation tour, and made sure that our visit
went well. We especially appreciated his restaurant recommendations,
which were wonderful. Near the apartment there is a supermarket and
an excellent bakery, as well as a bank and a bus stop (from here we
were able to take the "A" bus to the central bus station for day trips
to Gubbio and assisi). We also walked frequently into the town center
and spent a lot of time exploring Perugia. Our thanks to Giuseppe and Villa Nuba for making our visit so enjoyable!
"Fantastico - the best"
This was my favourite part of Italy. Giuseppe is a fabulous host, Very attentive to your needs, but you have complete privacy. His tips for exploring Perugia region were spot on. The drive to Gubio is very special. Assissi , Spello , Perugia itself, just fantastic.You are in the countryside (the view from upstairs apartment is marvelous) but just a few minutes from town. You can walk to the town centre in around 15 minutes, the bus is only a few minutes way. The rooms are spacious and beautifully presented with wonderful furnishings. Great pool and unlimited internet access (my daughter loved that !) I rate this on an 11 ! Thank you Giuseppe, We will remember our very special time at Villa Nuba forever.
Three weeks in Perugia
This spacious apartment on the outskirts of Perugia was an ideal choice for enjoying both the city and the neighbouring hill-towns. Clean and well appointed, located close to a bus stop, a good local bakery and a supermarket, it provided for all our needs. The swimming pool was a bonus, especially as the autumn was unseasonably warm. Our landlord Giuseppe was very hands-on and full of good advice - his restaurant recommendations in particular were very useful. Though the gardens are charming (the fig tree was fruiting while we were there), this particular appartment has no view. If returning, we would choose the upper appartment with a balcony and a good view of the surrounding countryside.

Villa Nuba was the absolutely perfect home base for touring Perugia and the wonderful towns of Umbria. This gated villa with a beautiful swimming pool and totally charming apartments was terrific. Our Host, Guiseppe, did a terrific job. First, he picked us up from the train. Then he spent another 40 minutes orienting us to Perugia. Finally, he did a great job orienting us to the features and appliances in the villa. In the above and beyond category, Guiseppe's father assisted my wife by arranging a dentist to attend to an emergency situation that developed during our stay. Overall, it was a magnificent visit!!
Beautiful Umbrian villa
The villas are very pleasant to stay in, and our hosts Guiseppe and Elga were superb, addressing our every need cheerfully. Their English is excellent so there were no problems with communication. The villas are perfectly presented in the countryside just a few minutes from the old city of Perugia. Other towns of Umbria are easy to access. The pool was a great place to relax.

I can't wait to go back!
With its beautiful grounds, spectacular setting, and well appointed suites, the Villa Nuba is no ordinary vacation rental! Nestled on the side of a hill overlooking the lush countryside, but only minutes from the lovely Medieval city of Perugia, the Villa Nuba is truly a home away from home. Our two bedroom suite was spacious, comfortable, extremely clean, and very well equipped. The view from our balcony was incredible! Our charming hosts, Guissepe and Elga, were warm, welcoming and very helpful, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend the Villa Nuba - it exceeded my expectations
Wspania?y urlop dla ca?ej rodziny. Warunki doskona?e. Tak jak w opisie i jeszcze lepiej. Gor?co polecam.
Great place for a relaxing stay
The accommodation is excellent having everything necessary to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Giuseppe the owner is most helpful and nothing was too much trouble. His restaurant recommendations in Perugia were good value and we enjoyed some excellent local cuisine. After a day of sightseeing we found the salt water swimming pool a lovely place to unwind. This accommodation is well deserving of praise and we will return. It's a great place from which to explore Northern Umbria and we found a car was not essential as there are good public transport and rail facilties.
Great holiday at Villa Nuba
What a lovely place to go for a relaxing holiday. We spent a week here but could easily have stayed for weeks longer! The apartment itself was beautiful and equipped with more appliances and utensils than my own flat! The nearby supermarket and outdoor barbecue facilities at Villa Nuba were a fantastic way to enjoy locat food without having to go out. The weather was great while we were there and the salt water swimming pool was the perfect place to relax with a book and enjoy the sun. The location of Villa Nuba is brilliant - it is far enough out of the city centre to be quiet and calm yet Perugia is within easy reach as are many other Umbrian towns for day trips.
Giuseppe and Elga are very welcoming and even showed us the important bits about town on our arrival such as the supermarket, where to park and eat etc.
Definitely hope to go back at some point in the future - a great holiday location.

Recommend for all ages
We rented Del Bonfigli for a month and also Del Perugino for a fortnight for our daughter and family (one son aged 3.5). Both apartments were spotlessly cleaned and had everything we could have wanted. A special price was agreed willingly.
Giuseppe and Elga were ideal hosts, providing advice and information (including a trip round the locality on arrival and helping us shop for the weekend). Any small difficluties were dealt with instantly and Giuseppe took us on a tour of the Hypogeum and arranged for us to join a tour of the newly excavated remains beneath the Cathedral Museum - Absolutely fascinating but some understanding of Italian is needed - the guide spoke slowly to help us.
The pool was excellent and much enjoyed by our Grandson (as was the Jazz Festival) and we had a wonderful time as a family which we have rarely been able to do before.
We used taxis to get into Perugia rather than walk or use the bus (both of which were easy) as they were so efficient and available at a reasonable price.
Overall a superb place to stay and so well looked after, I'd recommend it to anyone.
a home away from home
My 2 friends and I were tired after missing our connecting train to Perugia but perked up when we arrived at the front gate of the Villa Nuba and saw Giuseppe waiting for us with a big smile on his face. He made us feel at home right away and we fell in love with the Pinturrichio apartment as soon as we came through the front door. It is very large with an open living and dining area, two bedrooms, lots of windows, a spacious kitchen and bathroom and a huge balcony with a spectacular view of the Umbrian hills. The amenities provided are superb and include a welcome basket on the kitchen table, a jacuzzi tub, an in suite washing machine, a large selection of travel brochures and art guides for the local area and our own patio and table right outside our door. The grounds of the Villa Nuba are beautiful with olive and pine trees and potted flowers everywhere and the salt water pool on the property is a very welcome addition after a long day of touring. Giuseppe took us out on an orientation tour the first morning and showed us where to buy bus tickets, shop for groceries and gave us the names of good restaurants in the area. He also took us on a wine tasting trip to Montefalco and Toregiano and a day trip to the town of Gubbio. He is very knowledgeable about Perugia and was able to answer all of the questions we fired at him during out stay. Giuseppe and his wife Elga are wonderful hosts and we will definitely come back for another visit!
Fantastic place in Perugia
5 of 5 stars
We arrived at Villa Nuba after some hot days in Florence, with high expectations. We were not disapponited. We stayed for one week in the Del Pinturicchio apartment, which has high standard, two nice bedrooms, nice and well equipped kitchen and a terrace with a fantastic view.
We are a family with to younger kids (2 and 5 years), and the pool was very important for our stay (and Perugia was then the hottest place in Italy). The pool is very nice, with nice view.
The grocery is within easy walking distance, there are also a bakery, a pizzeria and a gelateria nearby. We went with the bus - the stop is also nearby - to the historic center of Perugia. You can walk, but it is uphill and with small kids and hot weather, we thougt it would be better to go by bus (or taxi, which is cheap). And Perugia is a very nice city (shop, eat, see).
Add that Giuseppe is a perfect host, and we would not hesitate to go back to Villa Nuba.
Beautiful, Relaxing and Peaceful
My family and I had the best week of our holidays in Perugia. After travelling from australia and staying in hotels for 3 weeks it was wonderful to arrive at Villa Nuba and have some quality family time.
The owners (Giuseppe and Elga) greeted us at the electric gates and showed us our beautiful apartment, where they had a welcome basket full of food and wine waiting for us. Giuseppe then went on to explain the places of interest around Perugia and where the supermarket, bakery and restaurants are. As this was our first time in Umbria, he also told us what other towns we must visit during our stay.
We visited Gubbio, Assisi, Deruta (famous for its lovely ceramics), Perugia and the Perugina Chocolate Factory, which is on the outskirts of Perugia.
It was great to do a little sightseeing everyday and then return to the pool for the rest of the day.
Villa Nuba is only a 15 minute walk to the medieval centre of Perugia and only 3 minutes from a supermarket where our daughters would shop for what they would cook that night.
We then ate outside at our private table and most nights we would meet up with a lovely couple from Manchester and share stories. As Guiseppe and Elga live on the property they would join us and make sure we didn't need anything and that we were ok.
Every night we would sit on the balcony and listen to the singing and music from a nearby festival in Perugia. This lifestyle beats working anyday.
This really was paradise for us and we can't wait to return. Thank you Giuseppe and Elga. You are a lovely couple and you generously share your home with strangers and look after us as if we were family. We are eternally greatful for that and I wish you all the best health and happiness until next time we meet.

Great place to stay in Perugia
We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Nuba. The apartments were modern and well equipped, and the location, within walking distance of the old city center, was very convenient. Being just outside of the city it was in the country: peaceful and quiet. Plus, we appreciated having a private parking space within the villa grounds. Most of all, the genuine warmth and graciousness of our hosts, the owners of Villa Nuba, made us feel special and very welcome.
Best rental apartment we ever had.
We highly recommend Villa Nuba. The location was perfect. The owners were extremely helpful in planning our day trips. They ofered discounts to some of Perugia's best restaurants. You will not be disappointed with this rental.
Great place to visit Umbria
Apartment very well decorated and spotless clean.
Everything is there and of good quality.
Our host Giuseppe is charming and will go out of his way to satisfy our requests and information.
We had breakfast everyday on the terrace.
Only regret one week was to short!

Ancora UNa Volta "villa Nuba" Sinonimo DI Qualita'
Io ed il mio fidanzato per Pasqua 2011 siamo ritornati per la seconda volta ospiti di Villa Nuba e non possiamo fare altro che confermare quanto questo posto sia meraviglioso e davvero unico.Quest'anno abbiamo alloggiato nell'appartamento del Perugino e davvero è stato un soggiorno da milla e una notte.Non c'è albergo che possa eguagliare il servizio, l'ospitalità e la pulizia di Villa Nuba. Per non parlare della cortesia e professionalità di Giuseppe, il titolare. Persona attenta, educata, gentile, ospitale, discreta e simpatica.Con lui la moglie Elga ed i genitori.Gli appartamenti sono davvero una favola. Completi di ogni necessità. E che bella la novità di quest'anno: il cielo stellato nella camera da letto.Non si può descrivere. Si deve andare li e provare.Ma a Villa Nuba si và perchè difficile trovare di meglio.Ecco, forse, questo è il loro unico diffetto. Abituano talmente bene il cliente, si sta cosi bene loro ospiti che poi... ci ritorni! Perchè le alternative perdono punti. Dopo un soggiorno a Villa Nuba ti rendi conto che allogiando altrove ti devi solo accontentare.
E sicuro ci torneremo .Nel nostro navigatore Villa Nuba è ormai indirizzo memorizzato tra i preferiti.Noi ci sentiamo di consigliarlo a chiunque decida di soggiornare in Umbria. Per altro la location è ottima per spostarsi ovunque.
Assisi è vicinissima per dire. Ci siamo andati tutti i giorni praticamente.
Per noi ormai Umbria=villa Nuba.
Bisogna prenotare per tempo perchè gli appartamenti sono solo 3. Ma vi garantisco che sono appartamenti Stupendi, Confortevoli, Curati NEI Minimi Dettagli.
Almeno una volta nella vita consigliano a tutti di fare un soggiorno a Villa Nuba. Un soggiorno con la S maiuscola.
I ricordi che vi rimarrano dopo un soggiorno a Villa Nuba saranno solo bellissimi.
Grazie Giuseppe per tutto. Grazie per aver creato un qualcosa chiamato Villa Nuba.Un abbraccio sincero e a presto.
Maria Grazia e Francesco
A beautiful getaway just outside Perugia
We stayed in the Del Bonfigli (sleeps 2) apartment at Villa Nuba in april 2011. Giuseppe, the owner, was incredibly helpful the whole time. He gave me a good deal on my last minute booking, and then showed us around town when we got there. He was available any time we needed anything.
The apartment itself is great. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Perugia -- a nice kitchen for cooking, wine glasses, corkscrew -- and Giuseppe starts you off with a bottle of wine, breakfast supplies and the makings of a spaghetti dinner. The bathroom is large and bright and the jacuzzi tub is great.
The location was perfect as well. You're a few minutes walk down the hill from the center of Perugia, so it feels like you're in the countryside, with the view to match. But in a few minutes (particularly if you have a car to get you up the first big hill) you can be right in the main piazza of the medieval city.
The only thing I'd do differently next time is stay longer!

Comfortable apt just outside medieval Perugia
We had a most enjoyable week at Villa Nuba. The Nuzzacis were welcoming and helpful (just make sure they show you the switches for the electricity and hot water, or you could inadvertently turn them off) The apts are nicely furnished; each has a washing machine, & the wifi worked very well.
Supermarket, gas station and an excellent bakery are within easy walking distance. The medieval center of Perugia is uphill: walkable if you're fit. Villa Nuba is a very good base for driving around Umbria and southern Tuscany. Evenings we called a taxi (which always came promptly) to go into Perugia for dinner.

Great placew to stay on the outskirts of Perugia
This is a great place to stay with easy walking access to the old town as well as driving access to the motorway to tour Umbria. The villas are very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished and decorated. There are lovely views over the Umbrian hills from the gardens and the upper level of the property.
Giuseppe is an excellent host - accessible, very friendly, excellent English and very helpful for planning trips around Umbria.There are plenty of tour guide and books in the villa.
The only difficulty we had was initially finding the property after dark, but Giuseppe says he will now send more detailed instructions with booking confirmation.
We look forward to returning to Villa Nuba.

Wonderful property in peaceful place
We stayed there only for a few days but the place is really wonderful because it is far from noise but at the same time it is near to the city of Perugia, a place full of story.

Wonderful place to stay in Umbria
The Villa Nuba was the perfect place for us to stay. My husband and I were vacationing with friends so we stayed in the del Perugino apartment with two bedrooms. It was beautiful, comfortable, and had everything we needed for a week stay in Umbria. Giuseppe couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Meeting him was one of the high points of our stay!
Our apartment had a great kitchen that enabled us to cook many of our own meals. It had a modern bathroom and a washing mashing so we could do our own laundry. The apartment even had a fireplace that we used one night when it was cold; wood was provided for three nights for free. Although Villa Nuba is in a quiet, rural-feeling location, we were still within walking distance of Perugia so it was the perfect location for us.
I would recommend The Villa Nuba to anyone traveling to Perugia or that area of Umbria. It was the best!
Villa Nuba is located at quite place , not far frpm old gity , with a beautiful view for Perugia. The apartment is well equiped and is comfortable for relaxinng vacatiobn.

Grazie di cuore!!
Great family holiday
Lovely villa made even better by the host and hostess, who make themselves available for fantastic travel tips and general help. Our 4 year old and 1 year old loved playing with the friendly cats!
Wonderful Stay at Villa Nuba
It was all it was promoted to be... and more. Giuseppe was a perfect host --very helpful and attentive but never intrusive. The unit was large, nicely furnished and well equipped. We hope to be back soon!
Charming and convenient
Lovely old farmhouse has been remodeled very tastefully. Quiet and feel of the country but only minutes from Perugia. Giuseppe was charming and very helpful. Comfortable, lovely pool and so easy to get to the surrounding hill towns of Umbria,
A Special Place
My wife and I have enjoyed a total of 3 stays at Villa Nuba since first finding it in 2006. Our longest stay being 5 weeks.
Giuseppe, Elga and the genitori are gracious and helpful offering very personal service to make your visit special. The apartments are beautiful, comfortable, and well furnished for an extended visit.The location is perfect being close to the centro historico but away from the noise and crowds of the city center. It is recommended for both those with and without a car.
If you want a true "rustic" Umbrian experience combined with all the convenience of city life Villa Nuba is for you.
Migliore location a Perugia
La posizione è bellissima e comoda ; gli appartamenti molto eleganti,
confortevoli e ben attrezzati. I giovani che lo gestiscono squisitamente
disponibili e simpatici!
