Modern Hotel in Ancient City
While in Perugia, we stayed in the Hotel Perusia e la Villa, which was near the historical center. It has a view on Assisi and the valley of the Tevere river.
This was the only rather new hotel we stayed in all the times we have been in Italy. It was build in the 1980's on the grounds of a well known Villa (which now houses the hotel's restaurant).
The rooms are spacious and are all alike. Best rooms in the summer months are back side rooms looking out to a park (no noise) so you can open a window because air is turned off at night. Otherwise, the country view from the front rooms is also nice.
They have a terrace as big as a track from which you see almost the entire region.
The hotel has 56 rooms, elevator, free parking and is closed (November 2-April 3. It was clean, had great bathrooms, plenty of storage, and its restaruant next door was excellent.
I do not like really modern places, so that is a drawback.
Note: This is not my photograph; it is one from the hotel's literature.
Convenient Hotel to Visit Perugia
The Hotel Perusia & la Villa is 1000 metres from the historical center of Perugia and is famous for Ristorante La Villa. The hotel is quite a modern building with 56 double rooms, bar, outdoor swimming pool, air conditioning, minibar, Satellite TV, safe, and parking.
The rooms in the hotel have enchanting views of Assisi and the valley of the Tevere River. Our room was located on the top floor with wonderful large windows for a view of the Umbria countryside.. These ultra modern rooms had many built-in storage areas. There was a seating area with a round table and two chairs, a king-sized bed, and a gorgeous bathroom.
The Satellite TV was a plus for watching English speaking CNN. But, the best thing about this hotel was its marvelous restaurant, La Villa. It is located across the lane from the hotel in an old villa with a flower-filled panoramic terrace. The rooms are warm and cozy with fireplaces in each room, and beautiful antique furnishings.
They served international and traditional dishes that were remarkable.
