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!!

We stayed at Villa Nuba the week of 25th June for five nights. The owners, Giuseppe and Elga, are wonderful hosts who go that extra distance to ensure that their guests are comfortable. The villa is on the edge of the town of Perugia and an easy walking distance to local restaurants and is also just a short walk into the centre of the town of Perugia. Elga even drove us around on our first day to show us where the supermarket, petrol station, local pizzeria and bakery were and then drove us into the centre of town to ensure we knew our way around.
There is a welcome basket provided on arrival (first night and breakfast supplies) which contains everything that a weary traveller might need after a long journey, including a bottle of the local vino.
The villas themselves are beautifully appointed, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Each villa also has a small courtyard area with tables and chairs for outside dining and the whole complex is surrounded by beautiful gardens with nice views of the Umbrian hills.
This is a great place to base yourself if you want to tour the Umbrian region as it is within easy reach of a number of popular towns. The fact that you have a beautiful villa to return to at the end of the day with maybe a swim in the pool and a glass of wine under the arbour makes it a truly relaxing and memorable experience.

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!
