About this listing
Incredibly located only metres away from the historic centre of the Etruscan Perugia, this wonderful apartment offers terraces, views and stunning garden.
Just a short distance (100mt) from the ancient “doors” of city of Perugia, this beautiful home is a true jewel. Only newly made available for rental, the apartment is situated on the 3rd (top) floor of a large restored farmhouse with medieval origins.
The apartment has independent access through an external stairwell covered in wisteria.
It is a large apartment (100 square metres) with a spacious bright living/dining room and open kitchen.
Two bedrooms; one with king bed, the other one with twin beds, one 90cm and one 120cm large, each have an en suite bathroom. If you need a baby-cot it is available.
The apartment has an East facing terrace, perfect to enjoy breakfast, and a “covered” West facing terrace, ideal for al-fresco dinners.
All linens for bed/bathroom and for the kitchen will be provided.
The area is very peaceful, set in a green surrounding with flowers and olive trees, although in the middle of town. (I'm very fortunate to live here all year.)
Upon arrival, I will make sure that you'll find all that you need: coffee, milk, sugar, salt, oil, a pack of pasta and tinned tomatoes, bread and jam.
The kitchen is fully equipped with micro-wave, toaster, boiler and coffee-machine.
So do not worry about anything and start enjoying this beautiful heart of Italy.
And upon your return enjoy a bottle of complementary wine.
The apartment is situated at walking-distance to the Universities (Italian Uni.+Uni. for Foreigners) and the city centre.
Within the neighbourhood, at less than 10 minutes’ walk, you’ll find the tennis club, the swimming centre, and the mini metro’, which can easily take you to a number of destinations. A 15 minutes’ drive takes you to the golf courses and the equestrian centre.
Perugia is a stunning town and is also incredibly located. Some of the most beautiful Italian sites are only a short drive/train ride away. From Perugia you can easily do day trips by bus/train/car to: Assisi, Spoleto, Gubbio, Lago Trasimeno, Spello, Siena, Firenze and the National Parc of Monti Sibillini.
I love having guests and will be at your disposition for advice on day-trips, places where to eat and even offer Italian cooking lessons.

About the Host, Cecilia
Ciao! my name is Cecilia and it is now a couple of years that I decided to make the third floor of my home available for rental. I have so much enjoyed this first period of renting, since you have all become personal friends! And some of you have also come back again and again!
I have lived in Perugia for over 40 years and love this corner of the world with its traditions, natural and historical beauty and culinary feasts. Umbria is the Italian region with a perfect balance of great locations, friendly people, good quality of life, safe cities, medieval villages, superb food and wine....a kind of paradise! Perugia is a real jewel, narrow medieval streets, wonderful restaurants, good wine and olive oil, along with hundreds of great locations to visit within less than 30/40 minutes by car/train. If you decide to come here, I will be delighted to suggest itineraries, places to visit and share with you a bit of real Italian life. I would be delighted to also show you how to cook some Italian specialties, as cooking is my passion! Hope to meet you soon, Cecilia
