Imagine such a scenario: our vintage Fiat 500 setting off from the centre of Perugia, descending and ascending along the sinuous lines of the hills surrounding the city. Here, among cypress and oak trees, we wind our way, perfectly paved, to the various villas, which tell us the story of a residential area, peaceful and far from any stress. We notice a few hotels and realise that here, indeed, the receptive vocation is powerful, also because – as mentioned earlier – here the privacy of the super-elevated greenery is mixed with excellent mobility, making an ideal lifestyle possible for those in search of their own space, amidst gardens, olive groves and, yet without having to give up city life. Perugia, a university city, flaunts its Via Viola, famous for its clubs and exclusive shops, and where the Cathedral of San Lorenzo stands out, almost as if to observe above all the beautiful houses, narrow streets and alleys that host an infinity of exciting and suggestive activities.
It is in this milieu that the stupendous detached villa is set, embraced by its own garden of about half a hectare and which in turn contains a large swimming pool of almost one hundred square metres and reaching a depth of almost three metres.

Being a very well thought-out building, nothing is lacking in either space or accessories. Developed on three levels, it currently consists of three separate and independent residential units, with the possibility of obtaining a fourth by dividing up the ground floor.
On the first floor we find two flats, a large one-room apartment with a terrace and a two-room apartment, while on the ground floor, in over 200 square metres of floor space, we find the master flat with four rooms, four bathrooms, a large living room and two kitchens, one overlooking the terrace and the other the veranda. Internal stairs lead us to the basement, where we can also “lose ourselves” in 80 square metres of tavern, two bathrooms and various accessory rooms in addition to the garage.
A great deal of attention has been paid to energy consumption in the recent work carried out, starting with excellent insulation/insulation of the walls, continuing with new PVC windows and doors, solar panels for the production of domestic hot water, an underfloor heating system with heat pump, and finally two photovoltaic systems for a total of 12 kW with storage batteries, all of which ensure that the villa, built in the late 1990s, reaches energy class A2.
The olive trees as well as the garden, where the generously sized (14×6) swimming pool is housed in a panoramic position, are irrigated thanks to the water stored in the rainwater collection tanks. For the record, these are not just any olive trees, but Perugian olive trees DOC and therefore included, according to the Gambero Rosso 2021 Guida Oli d’Italia, in the list of Italy’s best oil producing trees. I don’t know about you, but I would die of an overdose of bruschetta!
We don’t know your dreams, ideas or needs, but if your destination is Perugia and you want quiet spaces, privacy or to dabble in hospitality, this is the home for you.
