Great location, great host!
on August 12, 2015
Our stay at Villa Nuba was just wonderful. Giuseppe was a true host and showed us all the important venues in the area on our first day. After that he took the time to tell us all about Umbria. Unfortunately we only stayed one week, but we really wanted to stay longer in this amazing place! I honestly cannot name one thing that was not as it should have been.
Wonderful stay at Villa Nuba!

We had read the previous reviews about Villa Nuba and can only second every good thing that has ever been said about them! The villa itself was lovely, the pool area wonderful, the welcome basket really appreciated and Giuseppe was just AMAZING! Nothing was too much to ask of him, from arranging taxis, to recommending day trips and places to visit, to the 'gold card' he has organised for clients to get the best offers in restaurants and shops. The location for us was great - it was about a 20 minute walk uphill to the centre of Perugia, but we did cheat a couple of times and get the bus that was just at the end of the road. And make sure that you visit the local bakery for breakfast - the pastries were literally to die for! This really was the perfect place to spend a holiday - we only wish that we could have stayed for much, much longer!
You won't want to leave!

Staying at Villa Nuba is like staying with family you didn't know you had. The location is quite unique. You are at once in the countryside and in Perugia! It really is the best of both worlds. I was a delighted with Umbria and would encourage travelers to make sure to see its beautiful towns.
The details in the rooms including hardwood floors, beautiful furniture, artwork and fabulous bed linens contributed so much to the enjoyment of our stay. There's a lovely bbq area too. Also helpful was a list of recommended shops and restaurants in the area that Giuseppe provides, along with a very useful discount card. We relied heavily on his suggestions and were never disappointed.It removed much of the "hit and miss" time from the holiday!
My young children, who had a brilliant time, want me to tell you that "there's free wifi, the ice cream in Perugia is divine and that Giuseppe does a really good job keeping the pool clean." What more is there?
Wonderful apartment, beautiful surroundings, gracious host

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Nuba Bonfigli apartment for 13 days in March of 2015. We had a fantastic experience, and we look forward to returning in the future. This is a perfect place to stay to explore by car Perugia’s beautiful and friendly hill towns like Assisi, Gubbio, Spello, Spoletto, Montefalco, and Orvieto.
The host: Guiseppe was the perfect host. His English skills are outstanding, and during our stay, he went out of his way to make sure that our stay was perfect. He lives on site with his wife, Elga, and his small son Lorenzo. He grew-up in Perugia, and he knows everything there is to know about the area. He is fiercely proud of being Umbrian, and was very helpful in helping us plan our day trips to the various Umbrian towns.
The Bonfigli apartment: Perfect for a couple. Charming, romantic, and well appointed. Very comfortable, peaceful, clean, and well equipped. Excellent high speed WIFI with an access point in the apartment. Complete with refrigerator, dishwasher, cook top, washing machine, Jacuzzi bathtub, and fireplace. Adjoining patio and pool area.
The area: The walk to Perugia can be challenging if you are less than physically capable. Perugia is quite hilly, and the walk to town can be difficult, especially in the rain. Taxi and bus options are available.
I look forward to returning to Villa Nuba. I plan to stay in touch with Giuseppe, as I now consider him a friend as well as a gracious host.

The apartment is a delight. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lounge/diner and a kitchen. Log fire if needed, although we didn't need to light the fire as the central heating system kept the apartment warm enough. Plenty of car parking space.
The apartment is located quite near to the city centre BUT to get to the city centre (centro storico) is up hill, a steep hill (or two or three) so you will need to be fit to get from the apartment to the centro storico. It can be done, I did it, but it took me a while along with some 'admiring of the views' stops on the way up. If you have difficulty with walking/not that fit then take the car to one of the car parks where there are escalators. We used the car parks Pellini and Europe where there are escalators. Use both to see different bits of Perugia. But be aware that some uphill walking will still be needed.
The most delightful thing though of our stay was our host, Giuseppe. What a wonderful host he is. Not only does he speak English but he goes out of his way to show you how to access the city, where the nearest car park is, where the nearest supermarket is, where the nearest pizzeria is oh and ever so many other things as well. There was also a welcome (and very welcome it was too) basket of food waiting for us on our arrival including a very nice bottle of red wine. Milk, water and orange juice were also provided and were waiting for us in the fridge.
A lovely, lovely man is Giuseppe and Villa Nuba is in a lovely, lovely location. Perugia is a great and extremely interesting city to explore (but take oxygen supply - oh! them there hills).
Alas we were there for only 7 days. Far too short a time. Make it longer if you can. So much to do and so little time to see and do it all.
Stayed March 2015, travelled as a couple
Tranquility in the green not far from the city center
on March 15, 2015
Beautiful and quiet location. Immersed in the Umbrian countryside, but not far from the city center of Perugia. Warm and personalized welcome. Comfortable and luxurious apartment. Good value for money. Here you can live a different experience from that of a classic hotel, with great comfort and autonomy. Onsite dining on self caterin base.
A gem in the heart of Umbria - fantastic holiday accommodation
on October 13, 2014
Our first time in this part of Italy and we were amazed at its charm and beauty. The Villa Nuba is on the outskirts of Perugia which is the regional centre. We arrived early to a warm and friendly welcome from our host, Giuseppe. While our apartment (Del Bonfigli) was being prepared he gave us a brief tour of the town where he showed us the main features, good restaurants, where we could park and where there were traffic restrictions.
We instantly fell in love with the town. It has layer upon layer of ancient buildings, steep roads and fine architecture. Visit the main art gallery - it contains fabulous examples of early religious paintings from Umbria.
On our return we were shown our delightful apartment. Very clean, spacious with lots of features (and really useful Wi-Fi). The large bathroom had a large jacuzzi and the bedroom had a ceiling painted with a star scene that gently revealed itself when the lights when out. The outside area had lots of seating and the pool was wonderful. It was quiet, restful - a great escape from our normal lives.
Our stay was all too short but we visited Assisi and Spello as well as Perugia. Giuseppe provided us with details of good local restaurants and they all gave great food and service.
Perugia is a lovely place, the Villa Nuba a great set of apartments but the best thing about our stay was the warmth and hospitality of our hosts Giuseppe and Elga. We would recommend Del Bonfigli without hesitation.
Rilassante soggiorno a Villa Nuba
on August 18, 2014
Sono appena tornata da un soggiorno a Villa Nuba e non vedo l'ora di tornarci,la villa è situata in una posizione bellissima nel verde e nella tranquillità umbra e a pochi minuti dal centro di Perugia; l'appartamento Pinturicchio, ad esempio, è arredato con cura e gusto e dotato di ogni comfort. Belle le nuotate nella piscina con acqua salata, i momenti di relax sul dondolo e gli aperitivi e le cene nel giardino a lume di candela. Ho molto apprezzato la disponibilità di Giuseppe, il proprietario, che abita nella villa con la sua famiglia, sempre disponibile per suggerimenti e consigli sui luoghi da visitare e sugli itinerari.Come non ricordare, infine, Paco,il gatto di famiglia, che ha contribuito, a suo modo, a rendere indimenticabile di soggiorno,lasciandosi coccolare.

Indimenticabile. Questo riassume il nostro soggiorno a Villa Nuba.
La residenza del Bonfigli, appartamento assegantoci, è dotata di ogni comfort, tra cui un'attrezzatissima cucina moderna (lavastoviglie, forno a microonde ecc), un meraviglioso caminetto in pietra, televisore LCD, wifi libero e il tocco di classe: la vasca idormassaggio.
Bella accoglienza: due bottiglie di vino in omaggio, tutto l'occorrente per la colazione e caminetto già preparato con la legna da ardere.
Proprietario gentilissimo, disponibile per ogni dubbio, problema o intoppo. Inoltre all'arrivo vi porterà con la sua macchina a fare un giro nei dintorni per consigliarvi i migliori ristoranti, pizzerie, supermercati ecc.
Comoda la posizione della villa, a due passi dal centro di Perugia ma allo stesso tempo isolata; il posto è tranquillo, silenzioso e immerso nel verde.
Consigliatissimo per coppie giovani e anziane intenzionate a staccare dalla realtà di tutti i giorni e a voler trascorrere una vacanza elegante e romantica. Non ve ne pentirete.
