Once upon a time...
is a B&B emerged in the Umbrian green hills just in front of the ancient walls of Perugia and therefor the perfect starting point to visit the town!
Our B&B is a typical rural Umbrian house built of bricks and beautiful roof tiles. A traditional Umbrian house joined with modern respect of nature, which for us is fundamental. We produce our own electricity with our photovoltaic implant which produces warm-water. A heat pump produces heating and also supplies us with energy for air-conditioning. This guaranties maximum comfort and restrains the consumption.
To minimise any kind of impact on nature we have adapted recycling which abled us to achieve a "ecosostenibilità da Legambiente" mark, eco-sustainability from Legambiente (the most widespread environmental organisation in Italy, "association of environmental intrest")
Our guests are welcomed to a family-based stay in a flat with an independent entrance on the first floor. We are more than pleased to give advice on what to visit and we gladly give indications to unknown artistic and culinary destinations in the territory.
With love for tradition, such as ancient furniture, wooden beam and historical agricultural equipment, we have created our frame for the B&B.
A big porch surrounds the B&B and guests are given the possibility to lay down in the hammock and listen to familiar sounds from the owl, the hoopoe, or if you are an early bird even hear the cock-crow.
If you are more of a sporty person you can go for a walk in the forest, gather typical land products or simply just go for a bike-ride admiring the beautiful settings.
Michele and his wife were extremely helpful to us. meeting us at a gas station and leading us to their beautiful home. One night they ordered pizza and beer to be delivered for us, and another night, we used their georgous kitchen to microwave dinners and use their kitchenware. The room was wonderful and we enjoyed their lovely flowerful property and the views.Dan and Joyce, May,2013
Michele and his family were fantastic hosts. The room was spotless and modern, with a gorgeous view of Perugia from the spacious second-story patio. We felt instantly at home and well-taken care of from the moment we arrived. Detailed instructions on how to get to Perugia, suggestions on sites to see for our short stay, as well as dinner recommendations (and a reservation) made us feel so welcome. The breakfast spread and coffee in the morning, wireless access, spacious shower and bathroom were unexpected but welcomed after our long journey. I would recommend "Once Upon a Time in Perugia" to anyone looking to stay in the region, and hope to return there myself some day as well!
It was my first try to book a ropm through Airbnb.We stayed there with my family (6 person) and we enjoyed too much.the price was wonderful. Everything was perfect,the rooms are more than clean and also bathrooms are clean and good.
It's difficult to reach without car,but if you have a car it takes only 5 minjtes to arrive to city center of Perugia.
The host family is so cute and helpful.The owner came to pick up us up to highway.He and his wife are so gentle.
We filled ourselves at home.Thanks a lot.
