The history of the Relais Villa Giulia
The first owner was Eugenio de Beauharnais, stepson of Napoleon and Viceroy of Italy. In 1850 the estate was bought by Count Ferri, Governor of the city of Perugia.
An enlargement project of the villa by the architect Giuseppe Ferroni of Senigallia dates back to this period; considered one of the most important architects of the region.
The definitive structure of the Villa dates back to 1892 and was commissioned by Giulia Ferri, daughter of Count Carlo Ferri and wife of the Baron and Senator of the Kingdom Giulio de Rolland.
Giulia, a woman of great personality and intelligence, was a close friend of Queen Margherita of Savoy, with whom she shared a passion for mountaineering. Giulia de Rolland was the first woman to climb Mont Blanc.
Later the property was inherited by Giulia's nephew, the Marquess Maria Pia Tacoli of San Possidonio, who made it her summer residence.
