Why Andrea Onofri chose Perugia area

We were born in Perugia and we love our beatiful town. We have recently got and renovated a new apartment from our grandma Jenny, where we used to live until a few years ago. We thought that we might like to host you, if you decide to come here for turism, visiting relatives and friends, studying or working for a short period of time.

What makes this apartment unique

I (Andrea) was born here! At a later stage, I lived here for seven years and when Miriana and I met, this was our first apartment. Therefore, we think that this is a very special place!

Grandma Jenny Apartment: apartment with garden in the center of Perugia
average rating of 5.0 based on 16 reviews

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grandma Jenny Apartment in Perugia for 11 nights. Our host, Andrea, was gracious enough to allow us to come a day early and leave a day late. We enjoyed every minute of our time there. The apartment itself is spacious, fully equipped, and close to everything. We do like to walk and we could get anywhere from the apartment but, if we had wanted to, public transportation was nearby. We used it for day trips to multiple Umbrian hill towns. Andrea and his family were extremely helpful with everything including some Italian coaching during a conversation over tea one day. We were appreciative and anxious to develop our Italian. Past reviews were all excellent. The place more than lived up to expectations. To be specific about the apartment: comfortable bed, well stocked kitchen with all appliances needed, nice bathroom with a washing machine, and a full separate living/dining room. It felt like home quickly and we were sorry to leave. Highly recommend it to all.

Perfect host, perfect apartement, and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was probably our best stay during our tour of several cities in the region. The host, Andrea, was very kind and helpful, and even gave us a ride to and from the train station. The building is located a short walk away from the city centre, and maybe only 2 minutes walk from the main bus station, where we took a bus to Gubbio one day. A supermarket and several restaurants are all nearby. The apartment was very clean, and included all the appliances and things we needed. If you're visiting Perugia, look no further than here for your accommodations. Grazie mille, Andrea!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment. With the escalators close by, it is very easy to reach the historical center (10 minutes). There is also a paying parking 50m away. We really enjoyed our stay in Perugia; it is a beautiful city. We would strongly recommend the apartment to anyone and if we go back to Perugia we will certainly stay at Grandma Jenny again. Thank you Andrea for your availability and kindness!

General impression - very good

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days in apartment Granma Jenny, 30 December - 7 January. We are not very young couple. The apartment is very convenient. First of all its location - close to the Perugia Bus Station (about 4 min. walk) and close to the moving staircase to the historical centre of the city. The house is on a fairly busy street but all the windows of the appertment overlook the opposite side, so the apartment is very quiet. The rooms are rather large. The kitchen is not very large but completely equiped. There is also a private garden but we did not use it due to rainy weather. And the heating system deserves a particular evaluation. The level of heating can be programmed for each hour of the day. TV-set, Wi-Fi - all devices runs without claims.

In sum we recommend the Granma Jenny apartment for tourists who want to observe Perugia as well as surrounding landmarks and sightseeings (Gubbio, Assisi etc.)

Superb home away from home--in the heart of Umbria

  • 5 of 5

My experience in "Oma Jenny" surpassed all expectations. My host met me at the bus station when I arrived from Rome and accompanied me the short distance to the apartment, whose location is ideal: close to the bus station (for connections to other cities including of course Assisi), to the escalator (scala mobile) to the upper town, to the excellent supermarket at Tre Archi. The apartment was spotless and more beautifully appointed than any similar apartment I've used or visited. Perugia and the surrounding countryside and hill towns are spectacular of course. Highly recommended! I look forward to returning with my wife and, if possibly, our young granddaughter.

Grandma Jenny is located in Via Cacciatori delle Alpi 48. You can arrive here by car (43.103861N,12.387964E). You can also arrive here by train (Perugia Stazione Fontivegge. From the Station, take a taxi or public bus D or S. Bus stop at 50 m). Coach service is also very handy and provides direct link from/to Airport of Rome (Autolinee SULGA. The bus station Piazza Partigiani is 100 m from Grandma Jenny Apartment).

The best Pizza in town is at Pizzeria Mediterranea, in Via Marconi. Our favourite restaurant is the 'Ristorante del Sole' (close to Via Oberdan), with good food selection and a beautiful view. Perugia is famouse for Umbria Jazz (mid July) and Eurochocolate (October), but any time you can enjoy taking a walk around the small streets and squares of the historical centre.
