Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


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.

Pictures can not possibly do justice to this beautiful apartment. It was everything we expected but so much much more!What made it even more of a special experience, was Fabio. He is so kind and genuinely concerned that you are happy and comfortable with his home and Perugia.Grazie Fabio for a lifetime of memories.

Perfect Apartment in Perugia

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the place to stay in Perugia! Perugia is a beautiful town to visit and explore and to use as your hub for day trips around Umbria. The apartment’s location is perfect- less than five minutes to Corso Vannucci (the main street of the historic center) but down a small street which allows it to be very quiet. The apartment is beautifully furnished, well equipped and very comfortable. The frescoed ceiling in the living room is breath-taking! As if all of this were not enough, the owner, Fabio is wonderful. He is very responsive and provides the highest level of care and service. If you are traveling by car, let Fabio know and for a small fee you can park your car in a parking garage close to the apartment. Perugia is built on a hill but has an amazing escalator system linking the historic center to the lower portion of the town. The escalator is close to the apartment and drops you off at the parking garage. The bus station is also located here which gives you the option to take a bus to the local villages if you prefer not to drive. We had the pleasure of meeting Fabio’s parents on our arrival. Fabio, his parents and this charming apartment made our Perugia stay perfect!

Excellent apartment in a beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5

We stay at many different apartments thoughout Europe and this is now one of our favorites as it creates that feeling of actually getting a small taste of living in this lovely city of Perugia. It’s comfortable, very well taken care of and our host - Fabio was extremely welcoming, casual, responsive and his suggestions greatly enhanced our visit. We would definitely stay here again and again.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Richly decorated rooms in a perfect location, accessible to everything in the historic center and an excellent host in Fabio. He was helpful in orienting us to the area and suggesting sights to visit. The addition of 2 bottles of wine and a beautiful bowl full of fresh fruit, made for a nice welcome. The apartment was very comfortable and light, with many windows. It was a short (5 min.) walk to a grocery store, and a store which produced home made pasta just 1 minute away, made for a great location. The apartment is actually nicer looking than the pictures show.

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.
