Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen, living room with fresco ceilings

In a tiny piazza within Perugia’s historic center, Perugiachocolate occupies a floor of a magnificently preserved medieval palazzo. Wonderfully romantic, this part of town has changed little since the 14th century.

This spacious apartment is ideal for those who want to experience the grandeur of a bygone age.

The impressive vaulted and frescoed ceilings of Perugiachocolate are worthy of a museum. A collection of antiques and the two fireplaces create an aura of refinement.

The city’s exciting medieval center radiates from Corso Vannucci, 50 yards away. All manner of shopping and dining choices are close at hand. The Italian University of Perugia and the University for Foreigners of Perugia are 300 yards away. On the last weekend of each month, a colorful, outdoor antique market takes place in Piazza Italia, 50 yards away. In July, the Umbria Jazz Festival plays host to the world’s best artist for 10 days. Mid-October brings the Eurochocolate festival that effectively turns Perugia in to an open air pastry shop for a week.

Parking, bus station and train station are all just a few minutes walk away.

About Fabio

My name is Fabio, I was born in Perugia in 1976. I work in an advertising agency as creative director. I love meeting new people from other countries and try my best to make the stay in my apartments as comfortable as possible. Because of my job I know many shops and factories where is possible to have special discounts. Please, feel free to write or call me for any question about your travel to Perugia and Umbria.

Why Fabio chose Perugia

My apartments are in the heart of old town, just one minute walking distance from Corso Vannucci, Piazza Italia, Rocca Paolina...

The apartments are very well furnished, with all you need to cook (microwaves, fridge, stove...).

The wi-fi is included in the price and there are special discounts for parkings, museums, transfer from/to Perugia Airport and Train Station.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 weeks, and loved our time here. Fabio was a gracious host, and was available for anything we needed. The apartment is beautiful, clean, and well equipped. Excellent location. Walking distance to everything in Old Town including the Mini Metro and bus station. I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was perfect for our needs. We really enjoyed it.

Elegance, comfort and more

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Perugia was enhanced by our beautiful apartment with fresco ceilings and a great location. Fabio provided a fresh bowl of fruit and drinks on our arrival. He was incredibly helpful in answering our questions about Perugia and helping us go to the train station when we left. We also had the pleasure of meeting his delightful parents. It gave us a feeling we were visiting friends. We highly recommend this wonderful apartment!!!

Absolutely Perfect Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

For me, this was the vacation of a dream, three weeks in a 750 year-old palazzo. I spent almost as much time walking through the apartment, examining details and furnishings, as I did walking through Perugia and its wonderful neighboring cities. If you want to be immersed in the history of Italy, this is the place. Situated in a medieval piazza, I could just look out the window and imagine the deadly fights between this borg and the nobles from other neighborhoods during the fifteenth centuries. (Fortunately one of the neighbors has a seven story tower to watch over us). Staying here, you'll get a feeling for life in an old Italian city, from the neighborhood fresh pasta take-out to the gang of bored teenage boys who hang out under the arch outside the apartment when it rains.

The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and everything works. And to say that manager Fabio is helpful is an understatement. He is clearly concerned that you have a great stay and will help in any way possible. He even came by to help me with my computer problems and film a video for me! And he was even too professional to accept a tip when I left. I can't recommend this place too much.

A wonderful apartment in the center of Perugia

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Perugia couldn't have been better. Our host met us, helped us with our luggage, led us to the parking garage and then back to the apartment. He did the same when we left. The apartment was as described and even better. The apartment is roomy with comfortable places to sit. The living room with its fresco ceiling was our favorite room. The bed was perfect. Most important the apartment was very quiet during the night. Everything that we needed was there. Our host provided extras like a huge fruit bowl, wine, beer, juice, coffee etc. The kitchen was well equipped. There was a washing machine that made laundry easy to do. Our host was very knowledgeable about the area. He was readily available and responded quickly to our questions. Would highly recommend this apartment. We hope to return in the future.
