“A Perfect and Unforgettable Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 19 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A Perfect and Unforgettable Place to Stay!

I have toured Italy several times, and have seen most of the country. On this trip, I wanted to stay in one city and one lodging, and try to get a feel for what it would be like to live in Italy permanently, without being tied to a tour schedule and perhaps visiting few places beyond my immediate surroundings. My visit would be from 29 August through 15 September, 2014.

My ideal city would be visually beautiful, with plenty of cultural, historical, and architectural features to enjoy. I would have a rental car, and hoped to be within an hour’s drive of several other outstanding destinations, in case I ever wanted to leave the city. I wanted convenient parking, and the ability to leave and enter the city without dealing with urban traffic. I preferred to have only limited contact with non-Italians.

Perugia, and especially the “Delizioso Loft,” was absolutely perfect for me.

The city has an extensive network of artisans with rich and long heritages. And by pure luck, it turned out that the “Delizioso Loft” itself is actually situated on the same grounds as one of the most important and interesting of the city’s artistic studios: the Museo-Laboratorio di Tessitura a Mano Giuditta Brozzetti.

The Giuditta Brozzetti facility is located in a medieval, “deconsecrated” Franciscan church. This church is surrounded by several residential buildings, which together enclose a very quiet courtyard. I liken the overall ambience to the chapel and residence halls which form the typical college at Oxford or Cambridge.

The church and residential buildings, one of which includes the loft, are owned and occupied by an extended family descended from G. Brozzetti and other old and important families of Perugia. These are very impressive people! They themselves are an important part of the history of the Perugia. They are fluent in English, and are extremely cordial and warm. They will respect your privacy, but will be readily available whenever you need information or assistance.

About the loft itself: it is conveniently located at ground level; has a parking space a few steps across the courtyard; is very clean and spacious; is fully equipped with all the household items stated in the owner’s description; has reliable WiFi service; and is within 5 minutes (by car or on foot) of a full-service supermarket.

The walk to the historic center of the city is about 7 or 8 minutes, and is another striking advantage of the loft itself: This walk first passes through a quiet university campus, and then along a wide walkway atop a medieval aqueduct leading into the city! Abutting the aqueduct are residences built in more recent centuries. The aqueduct walkway is particularly beautiful in the evening lighting.

For a very short walk from the loft, you can go out the kitchen door, walk 300 meters along part of the city’s towered medieval wall, and arrive at a small, completely pristine, round, fifth century church (or “tempio”), with a domed roof. One night I attended – free of charge – a performance there by an professional choir and an instrument ensemble touring Italy from South America. The acoustics were amazing.

For day trips from Perugia, the beautiful hilltop towns of Gubbio, Spoleto, Assisi, Spello, Norcia, Todi, Montefalco – the list goes on and on – are only an hour away.

My stay at the Delizioso Loft was truly a perfect and unforgettable experience!

“Worrm in an enchanting place.”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Delizioso Loft is an excellent solution for those who would like to spend their holiday in Perugia. It is five minutes away from the old city centre and it is easy to get to from Piazza Italia where the airport shuttle stops.

The Loft is well presented, with a lot of space and a worm and friendly atmosphere. there is a lot of natural light coming in through the large windows that show and enchanting and private view on one the back yard of the property.

The accommodation has a walking wardrobe with a lot of space and a good selection of blankets and linen to be used. The place was clean with a big working kitchen.

Besides all that, it must be said that the owners of Delizioso Loft are approachable, available, friendly and very welcoming. The respect your privacy and they are very helpful.

I was very happy there and I would go back at any time.

I recommend Delizioso Loft to all those who are looking for privacy, practicality, warmth, a friendly environment and closeness to the magnificent Perugia city centre.
