In the countryside, just two kilometers from Assisi, with a wonderful view on the Basilica of San Francesco and the forest of the Sacred Convent, the apartment of 100 square meters is located on the ground floor of a villa of two floors,. The apartment consists of a large living room with fireplace, kitchen with window-door overlooking garden on behind, social bathroom with shower, two bedrooms with hardwood floors (parquet), main bathroom with sauna and turkish bath. The apartment has fine finishes and antique furniture. From the apartment it's possible to reach Assisi on foot in 15 minutes through the Franciscan Trail or by car in 5 minutes. The atmosphere of peace and silence makes the area an ideal place for a relaxing stay in the land of San Francesco.
This was my second time using this property. It was just as lovely as the first time. (See above for the last review from September)
My husband joined me for this trip and we had a wonderful time.
The weather was cooler so we used the indoor heating which had a control that we were welcome to adjust.
We couldn't get the stove to light and the family upstairs (the local contact for the property) came to the rescue. I had forgotten to turn the gas on. lol
Plenty of space for us. It was nice to go back.
Easy to get into Assisi or to the highway. Spent some time at the area "mall" which was about a 15 minute drive.
If I get the chance to return to Assisi, I wouldn't even try to find other accommodations. It had everything I needed.
My purpose for this trip was to help my son settle in to the boarding school in Assisi for the year. I wasn't there to see the sights or visit the religious sites that the city is known for but it was still a perfect getaway and I couldn't help but enjoy myself and be overwhelmed by the beauty of the area.
As the title states it really was a "Lovely apartment in Assisi". It was a challenge to find (Italy doesn't number the same as we do in Canada. Even the neighbours didn't know where it was :-). The apartment itself was spacious for the two of us. Beautifully decorated, modern, and had all the items necessary for our stay. Our host had even provided towels which we hadn't expected.
Although we never met Mirella, she was available by email/text/phone for our entire stay to answer questions. Her sister-in-law lives in the apartment upstairs and was our "in-person" contact during our stay. They were absolutely wonderful. They warmly welcomed us, and helped us find local grocery stores to do our shopping. Neither my son, nor I, speak any Italian. They were patient and kind and we all kept trying to understand one another.
I was initially concerned about the distance from the centre of Assisi. I had hoped to be in the centre of Assisi as it shows on the map. It ended up being in the perfect location. We could walk into town (20-30 minutes) if we had the energy as it was quite a hike with most of it uphill. Gratefully the trip home was downhill :-). The location also gave us the flexibility to get into neighbouring towns without any trouble.
The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. In the distance you could hear roosters crowing and cows mooing.
In the town there were plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy "typical" Italian fare (typical=local), lots of stores for trinkets and other "reminders" of a stay in Assisi.
An absolutely wonderful stay. I hope to return soon.
We (my boyfriend and I) enjoyed our stay at Mirella´s apartment in Assisi very much! It is a fantastic quiet place, surrounded by nature and olive trees and there is a lovely garden behind the house.
The apartment has 2 new bathrooms (each with shower and toilet), a bedroom, a kitchen and a very large living and dining room. The apartment is very comfortable furnished with antique furniture and modern-art-paintings.
There are 3 different uphill footpaths to reach within 25-35 min (1,5-2km) the centre of Assisi. The landscape around Assisi is charming and spellbinding!!! We had our bicycles with us and enjoyed rides in that area (specially the route from Assisi on the “Via degli Ulivi” to Spello and back)
The Italian family (relatives of Mirella) with their cats living upstairs in the house are all very helpful, friendly and open minded - just lovely!
It was very helpful that my boyfriend speaks a little Italian and so we enjoyed it very much to communicate with the family!
We had a lovely time in Assisi!
situation idéale pour pèlerinage franciscain aux pieds de la basilique!
accueil assez "familial" avec accès au jardin de grand-père et à son vin...
bon rapport qualité/prix
My husband and I had a lovely stay in this quiet, country farm house. The hosts were WONDERFUL, and although they didn't know much English, they went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay, including bringing us fresh eggs on 2 mornings, and even bacon one morning!
It's a bit of a walk up the hill to the town of Assisi, but, well worth it. This is the perfect place to experience Assisi.
Bella casa confortevole e comoda in campagna appena fuori Assisi raggiungibile anche a piedi in pochi minuti. Proprietari cordiali e disponibili. C'e tutto il necessario per soggiornare in autonomia (cucina, camino, giardino, internet WiFi ..). Grazie per l'ospitalità. Ciao ciao
We had a wonderful time in Mirella's lovely apartment in Assisi. The apartment is very well equipped and very comfortable and has easy access to the area. Mirella was extremely helpful and even came to find us when we got a bit lost en route. The walk to the walled village of Assisi is mostly uphill but short and pleasant.
It was a wonderful break from hotels, and we highly recommend it.
