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!

Room Tip: There are several rooms at the villa. We had one for 2 couples with 2 separate areas that were great...

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful weeks in the 2 bedroom 2 bathe apartment and cannot say enough good things about our experience. We would highly recommend Villa Nuba to anyone visiting the Umbria region of Italy. Perugia itself had much to see and we especially enjoyed the Etruscan underground and all the Museums and all of the old city. Of course there is no shortage of churches and cathedrals in Italy and Perugia had wonder old churches to see.
The owners are fantastic and I cannot say enough good about Giuseppe and his wonderful wife! They were always available to help us with directions and that was the value of have the owners right on the property.
They speak great English. They were generous in every way and helped us with directions and even took us to the grocery store and the rental car place on our first day there. G met us at the train station on our arrival. That was a tremendous help.
There really was not a thing wrong with the apartment. We were very comfortable there and remember we were there for 2 weeks. Obviously, great care was taken in preparation for our arrival. The place was spotless. The property was impressive and they even have a beautiful swimming pool with wonderful grounds and lounge chairs , etc. Many euros have been spent on renovation so that the building looked almost new. What else can I say other than we would highly recommend your staying there and that it was a trip of a lifetime and our stay at Villa Nuba made it all that much more special. Every important place to see villages churches towns and city's are all a day trip from the apartment with your rental car .
Perugia was a wonderful city and was easy to access by bus and even walking. We walked some places and a grocery store and bakery was nearby. The owners of Villa Nuba had a friendly relationship with many of the local restaurant owners and the bakery is that we could get at least a 10% discount on food and drink.
It was an easy train ride to Florence and you visit many other villages in Southern Tuscany in addition to what you will see in Umbria. The countryside in both areas is spectacular. We experiences lots of great wine. The food was wonderful every where. We ate in at times and experienced a fully equipped kitchen. We encountered no problems with language differences and as I said the owners spoke wonderful English. Lots of outside places to eat all over the areas and visitors will want to alow ample time to explore the old City in Perugia and make sure you allow time to get back to the property to enjoy the pool.
Again we highly recommend Villa Nuba to everyone and we would definitely there with no question.

Room Tip: We suggest the 2 bedroom and 2 bath apartment.

We are two middle aged couples, one from New Zealand and the other from the US. We just spent one week at Villa Nuba. It was perfect in every way. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath home within easy walking distance to a supermarket, bakery, ATM and from the old city of Perugia. All the correspondence with the owner Guiseppe went smoothly. He and his lovely wife Elgar were so warm and friendly and they speak fluent English which was so helpful. When we arrived Guiseppe drove us around to show us how to get to the highlights and all the places I mentioned above, that was a first. Now I know why their rental is #1 on Trip Advisor. Beautiful pool and outdoor areas. The very, very special highlight was their beautiful new son Lorenzo was being baptized on our last evening and we were invited to share in it. So special!

Ciao,
Linda

I came to choose Villa Nuba for my stay in Perugia after reading comments on Tripadvisor. I can say adamantly that it lived up to every comment. Nothing was exaggerated Cathy S and Jon O, they hit the nail on the head with their comments. I had already made arrangements to stay at a hotel in Perugia before coming to Villa Nuba. Giuseppe picked me up from the train and took me to my hotel and then picked me up four days later and brought me to Villa Nuba. That's service! Words that spring to mind are ambient, peaceful, character filled, comfortable, relaxing and very private. Giuseppe helped me post packages home (Australia), book flights and got me a great deal on a mobile phone. Things I could not have done so easily on my own. Nothing was too much trouble. On day one he gave me the guided tour of Perugia with very helpful tips on travel, eating, shopping. We stopped at the supermarket, he helped me buy groceries and even carried them to the car. As a woman travelling alone I felt very safe and secure at Villa Nuba. Giuseppe was full of useful and practical suggestions to make my stay the absolute best. If he hadn't seen me for a few days he would pop in and check that I was ok and see if I needed anything. But at the same time I always felt like I had total privacy. I have never stayed anywhere with a host so amicable and caring for the welfare and interests of his guests. I can find nothing negative about Villa Nuba on any level! All my friends are planning to add it to their next holiday, I have raved so much! There was nothing better than sitting in my own private courtyard watching the view, sipping on a wine and listening to the distant tolling of church bells after a long day exploring beautiful Umbria. But wait, there's also the Villa Nuba gold card. You can get discounts at several shops and restaurants in Perugia and even free espressos at the local pasticceria! Ten out of ten Giuseppe!

Room Tip: I stayed in del Bonfigli. Very suitable for a couple or triple. Any more I would choose one of the b...

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!!!

Our stay at the Villa Nuba in Perugia was a highlight of our trip. Hosts Guiseppe and Elga (and of course their new son Mister Lorenzo!) were charming. The accomodation was spacious, comfortable and had every convenience. We elected not to hire a car and travelled everywhere by bus and train and had no problems. Guiseppe met us at the train station, showed us around Perugia, stopped at the Supermercato to allow provisioning and then highlighted places to visit. He has identified restaurants/Osterias that not only are authentic, but give discounts with a "Villa Nuba Gold Card". We tried every suggestion and the quality of the food and prices was outstanding. our only regret was that we did not have enough time there! I would recommend Villa Nuba unreservedly to anyone wanting an authentic Italian experience. We will certainly be returninmg to Villa Nuba!

Room Tip: We had the only one bedroom apartment. If you open the door in the morning for the sun you may get a...

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!
