Activities/Attractions: Situated in the centre of the Italian peninsula, the region of Umbria is traditionally considered the green heart of Italy. As a guest, you will be enchanted by the dazzling views of centuries old villages perched atop radiant, green, rolling Umbrian hillsides.

Equally delightful is a visit to the ancient city of Perugia, the regional capital, to wander its narrow, winding medieval streets. Built on the crest of a hill at an elevation of 493 metres, your gateway to the city will be the magnificent Etruscan Arch, still perfectly intact. Other attractions are:

  • the Etruscan monuments
  • the museums
  • the fresh Umbrian air
  • the myriad of restaurants where diners can savour the traditional dishes of Umbria and Italian cuisine in general
  • the friendliness of the locals, who have long been accustomed to the presence of visitors from other countries
  • the Umbria Jazz Festival (during July)
  • Eurochocolate (during October)

If you should choose to be a guest at The Charming Villa Nuba Apartments, you will experience a truly unforgettable holiday. What is more, Perugia is not far from the A1 motorway (Autostrada del Sole) and only one and a half hours drive from Rome and Florence, three hours from Bologna and five hours from Milan.

The owners will also be delighted to provide any information required for guided tours with the best tour guides in Umbria. We will also be delighted to help you as your personal shopper, to help you for cooking lessons with one celebrated chef, to help you for ceramics art-school and to help you to rent a car in Perugia town.

"Umbria really is a beautiful part of the world and Villa Nuba is the perfect place to stay. The house itself, of course, is lovely and the location is perfect, but so much of the charm of staying there is due to you, your delightful mother and the lovely, dark-haired lady, whose name I never learned, but who was so very kind to us - as, indeed, were you. It was all above and beyond the call of duty, Giuseppe, but was, I assure you, very much appreciated. Thank you so much, Giuseppe, for everything you did for us and for the sympathy and understanding you showed to two people you barely knew. Dad and I talk about you a lot and we have told so many people about del Pinturicchio - perhaps you will see a lot more Scottish visitors (well-behaved ones!) in the future? I hope your mother had a wonderful holiday and that everything will go well for you in your forthcoming exams. If ever you want to visit Scotland, you know how to contact me! Thanks again."

We stayed at Villa Nuba for 5 weeks. It is very conveniently situated and, whilst it has beautiful views of the countryside, it is also very close to public transport, cafés and shopping. The centro storico is also within reasonable walking distance. We were delighted with our stay there and had a marvellous time. The Nuzzaci family were very welcoming and friendly. Our apartment was spacious, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Giuseppe and his family reside on another part of the property and during our stay they were always very pleasant but never intrusive. Giuseppe himself was always most helpful and assisted us in many ways from collecting us at the station to assisting with booking football tickets. We can unhesitatingly recommend Villa Nuba to anyone wishing to visit Perugia."

"Dear Giuseppe, I'm back home now for a week, and still feel the warmth of Villa Nuba and your wonderful hospitality. Janet is currently in Germany and will not be home until next week end. We will certainly send you a note of our full thoughts of appreciation of the comfort of Nuba Colle Giorgio, and your most helpful assistance. With thanks to your mother and father, Best Regards."

"Fabulous. A home away from home. Highly recommended."

"... the whole time, the memory of the fun time we had in Umbria, and your beautiful apartment, and how very nice and friendly you and your family were, kept us happy the whole way. It's going to take a while before I get used to being back home. In the few hours we've been there, we've told so many people about your wonderful apartment and your generous hospitality that they all want to go. I've told everybody who has called (family and friends) to welcome me back that Perugia is the most beautiful town in Umbria, and that Umbria is the most beautiful region in Italy and its people are generous of spirit, patient and kind. Please write and let us know how you and your family and your girlfriend are doing. We hope everything goes well. Best regards and a big hug and kisses for you and yours."

General Information: Welcome to Villa Nuba Apartments ... a historic farmhouse dating back to the 1400s, built on Colle Giorgio, a hill just outside Perugia, Italy. Located in open countryside, but a mere stone's throw from the historic centre of the city, it was converted into a family villa in the 1970s. The building has once again been refurbished and remodelled into three sumptuous apartments, which are intended for families wishing to spend brief holiday periods in Umbria.

We believe that we are offering something that has been missing in Central Italy, not your average farm holiday accommodation, nor an uninspiring flat, but a luxurious apartment in a villa in which the owners themselves reside, amid elegance, comfort and tradition, and accompanied by warm, friendly, family hospitality. The charming Villa Nuba Apartments offer a home away from home!

  • The apartments will be provided with the number of beds required by our guests (2-3 beds, or 4-6 beds)
  • They include satellite colour TV, DVD and CD player
  • Wireless DSL Internet Access in all apartments
  • Jacuzzi and/or albatross whirlpool bath
  • Washing machine, dishwasher, microwave oven
  • Fans, mosquito-net, safe
  • Small library, and a living room with fireplace
  • All in an environment surrounded by greenery, a garden with reserved parking spaces, barbecue, kennel and table-tennis table
  • A new and charming salt water swimming pool

The owners live in the main villa (an adjacent wing of the villa), a guarantee of a warm, friendly Italian welcome. Their hospitality will ensure: help with all your needs, suggestions for sight-seeing and cultural tours of the most interesting Umbrian towns, (as well as Rome and Florence, a mere one-and-a-half hours drive from Perugia).

  • We prefer to be clear with all our guests
  • We offer our self catering rentals with everything included - you will not have any surprises on your final bill

"Diana and I are writing to tell you and your family how much we enjoyed our 2-week stay at your VILLA NUBA. It was the most attractive and comfortable of all of the accommodations we stayed in during our ten week trip to Italy and Provence. We were thoroughly impressed by the beauty of the villa and its hillside setting as well as the view from the windows. We were equally impressed by the inside of the apartment del Bonfigli. We don't recall ever staying in an apartment, lodge or hotel room that had nicer furniture, décor and appointments. Every room was inviting and comfortable, and the jacuzzi bath was a special treat. What we appreciate the most, however, were your extra efforts to make our Perugia experience easy and low-stress. We are particularly grateful that you picked us up at the train station, but more than anything else that you helped us by negotiating such a good rental car price for us. We would have paid nearly twice as much if you hadn't helped us with the car. Also, your suggestions as to day-trips to nearby villages made the whole experience absolutely wonderful! Each of those villages was a gem. Again, mille grazie for all your efforts and favors. We look forward to staying at VILLA NUBA the next time we visit Italy."

"We found the facilities exceptional and the welcome, assistance and hospitality very warm. We would certainly recommend Villa Nuba to our friends and other travellers ... and look forward to another visit soon!"

"An enjoyable stay. A wonderful Villa located in a lovely hill."
