Villa Aureli
 Umbria, near Perugia, Italy


Villa Aureli, built at the beginning of the sixteenth century, was greatly altered in the eighteenth century by a Perugian nobleman, who transformed it into his country house. He adorned it with ornamental plasterwork, pictures and furniture, most of which you can still see today in the house. The Italian garden in front of the Villa, shaded by lime trees and oaks, is decorated with many large antique vases containing citrus trees. The house and garden are not only beautiful, but also possess a rare charm and atmosphere. Guests have access to the garden in front of the first floor apartment, the grove next to it and an avenue of limes.

Each apartment has its own entrance from the garden. Beyond the garden lies rolling countryside with woodlands, roads and paths. Castel del Piano, the village next to the Villa, is 10 km from Perugia, 20 km from Lake Trasimeno, and is in the heart of Umbria, which is known as “the green heart of Italy”. Within easy reach are Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spoleto and Todi, all renowned for their artistic treasures. Siena is one hour by car, while Rome and Florence may be reached in two and half-hours. Several swimming pools, riding stables and a golf course can be found close by. The owner has prepared several itineraries for guests who wish to visit little known places of interest in the countryside.

The First Floor apartment (200 square meters) can accommodate up to 6 people: 1 double bedroom for 2 with bath, 1 twin bedroom for 1 with bath, a divan bed in the study for 1,  and a sofa-bed in the large drawing room for 2. There is a kitchen, dining room, and study. Bed linen, dishwasher, washing machine, TV and telephone are all provided. Heating is by means of log fires, wood stoves and electric radiators.

The Second Floor apartment (200 square meters) can sleep 4-8 people: 1 double bedroom for 2 and a twin bedroom for 2, with a separate bathroom.. There is an exquisite living room, study, kitchen, and dining room.

 If desired, 4 additional guests can be accommodated with the addition of two more adjacent double bedrooms and one bath. See 2nd floor sketch below below.  Add 35% to basic charge.

 Bed linen, dishwasher, washing machine and telephone are provided. Gas central heating is available charged by usage.
