Villa Aureli

In the heart of Umbria, near the ancient city of Perugia, Villa Aureli stands like a jewel in a hilly countryside, where lines of pine trees mark the horizon. The villa dates back to the 18th century when Count Sperello Aureli restored a 16th century castle adorning it with frescoes, prints, and painted furniture. Among the wonders of the house, the colourful Vietri ceramic floors, different in each room, the bright fist floor gallery, the garden ornamental walls and the orangery.
All the guests have private spaces in the gardens, with wonderful views on the hilly Umbrian countryside. The pool (12x4), made out the ancient water cistern, is set in a sheltered area under the garden walls, with southern exposure.

Wonderful, all authentic appartment with antique furniture and art and a little private court, Access to splendid gardens in front of the main building, 16th century villa. Sperello and Carla are extremely gracious, polite and knowledgeable hosts, both composed and relaxed.If you are fortunate enough to get a tour of the villa, you are in for a walk through four centuries, miraculously and casually preserved. We enjoyed our stay - and returned a few months later with friends.

Lounge by the pool? Check. Roam the countryside? Check. Good base to discover the surrounding cultural highlights? Check.
This villa comes highly recommended if you're looking for authentic charm. Just far enough from the tourist centers to be peaceful, just close enough to be handy. And the lady of the house will gladly give you a tour of the premises, filled with family history.

Management response:

Dear David, thank you for your review. I hope you will come back to Villa Aureli some time. Kind regards Sperello
