Apartment in the Perugia historic center with fresco ceilings

Bedrooms 1
Space 699 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 - 9 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 Umbria

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.

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.

Perugia Chocolate. A perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Perugia was wonderful because of our host Fabio and his beautiful apartment. Fabio met us when we arrived, helped us with our luggage, settled us in the apartment, and helped us park our car. Perugia is a city built on hills and finding our way would have been difficult without his help. He did the same at the end of our stay. The apartment exceeded our expectations. Fabio had generously provided in addition to necessities an enormous bowl of fruit, beer, wine and juice. There was both coffee and tea in the cabinet. Fabio provided information about the city and the area. He was available when we had questions. Fabio made our stay a pleasure. We hope to return.

Fantastic experience in Perugia

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded my expectations and the hospitality extended by the host was unparalleled by any other property owner we stayed with in Italy. We arrived by bus and unfortunately got off at the wrong stop in Perugia. The owner had provided us with his phone number and drove 15 minutes to pick us up. He gave us a tour on the way to the apartment, ensuring we had the basic information we needed for our 6 day stay. I cannot give enough accolades to the property itself. Exceedingly clean and well maintained. Where else can you find painted frescos on the ceiling? The kitchen has all necessary supplies and there is a large table and chairs in the eating area; we lacked nothing. A couple bottles of wine, juice, fruit and chocolates had been provided for our enjoyment which was very much appreciated after a day of travel. There are several steps to the bedroom but what a large, spacious bedroom it was. Very comfortable bed, closets, dresser and chairs. The living room is huge with plenty of seating, 2 sofas and 2 chairs. 2 windows open to the quiet street below. It is located a short 5 minute walk to the main square of the walled city, where you can catch the local bus lines and the mini-metro if you want to get to get to other locations in Perugia. 5 minutes more will get you to the main bus terminal where you can board a day bus to Assisi, Siena or any number of surrounding cities. Our host checked in with us several times via email to ensure we lacked nothing (we weren't traveling with a phone). When it was time to leave Perugia, he brought us to the train station. I discovered I had left something behind, contacted him and he arranged for it to be mailed to us at our next apartment in Orvieto. He refused to allow me to reimburse him for this kind act. I encourage everyone to give this property a try. You won't be disappointed!
