Nestled within the green hills of Umbria’s capital city, Perugia, Jaja is a restored 14th century church that, though no longer consecrated, continues to dedicate itself to the well-being of its guests.

Jaja Vacation Rental

While its three-floor structure has been updated to provide modern luxuries and conveniences, many of its originally built stone walls have been kept and exposed, thereby continuing to endow the villa’s spacious interiors with a sense of enduring stability and comfort. Outdoors, thanks to an abundance of furnished gathering spaces, including its terraces, pool area, and garden, the villa makes it easy to enjoy panoramic views of Perugia’s lush countryside. Enjoy Jaja with loved ones and dine together al fresco here, in Umbria, the “green heart” of Italy!

There is no lack of spaces for getting together, as the ground floor offers three living areas: the first living room was once a chapel, and features a white interior and high wood-beamed ceiling, a TV, and comfortable seating; the second living room is part of an open-concept plan that combines it with the dining room, and comes with sofas and a dining table, and opens towards a terrace; and the third living room features plush seating and a fireplace. The kitchen is well-equipped, bright and spacious, and features a breakfast nook as well as access to the kitchen’s outdoor garden, complete with a breakfast table and parasol. Near the kitchen are also a spacious laundry room and a guest bathroom.

The expansive fenced and landscaped villa garden is available for your enjoyment. Experience relaxing moments at the private pool and on the pool deck, furnished with a parasol, sunbeds and chairs. A wood-decked terrace with a sofa and chairs is perfect for snapping a few pics for Instagram with your favorite drink in hand. Facing the living room is a terracotta-tiled furnished terrace which includes a dining table with seating for up to eight for alfresco dining. A BBQ is also available. A shaded breakfast table in the garden provides an ideal location for beginning the day.

Jaja offers plenty of gathering spaces and amazing views for enjoying time together. The villa is part of a family-owned estate that is surrounded by rivers, fishing lakes, a waterfall, castles, and the estate’s restaurant (about a 10-min drive). The estate offers a wide variety of activities, from yoga classes and massage treatments, to hunting (wild boar, in autumn), trail hiking and 18-hole golfing. Nearby are a small village with shops (10 min), and the famed towns of Perugia (25 min) and Assisi (40 min), among many others. Florence and Rome are also within reach, each about a 2-hr drive away.

Umbria Travel Guide

Lush & Luxurious 

Located East of Tuscany and north of Rome, Umbria is a gem not yet discovered by mass tourism. Populated with lush chestnut groves and elm forests, castles and fortresses, this region’s fairytale scenery has served as inspiration to many well-known artists. Our villas in Umbria are located in small, enchanting towns dotted across the verdant landscape.

Stay in a villa in Perugia, a medieval hill-town where the Umbrian style of painting originated, which can be seen in the works of Raphael. Indulge in the delicious Baci chocolates for which Perugia is famous, and if you visit in the fall, be sure to attend the annual chocolate and jazz festivals.

If you choose to stay in Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, Italy’s patron saint and favorite mystic, you'll be surrounded by incredible art, architecture, and medieval ruins. Don't miss the basilica, built in honor of St. Francis and decorated by some of the greatest artists in the early Renaissance era.
