Nous avons été agréablement accueilli par la propriétaire.
Avec de petites attentions, du lait, des biscuits et du jus de fruits.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette région.
Le logement a un joli jardin. Nous avons eu l'autorisation de cueillir de bonnes figues.
La propriétaire nous aussi offert des tomates du jardin.
La maison est situé à environ 25/30 minutes à pied du village d'Assise en passant par un chemin aménagé dans la colline au pied de la basilique.
Le logement est spacieux et agréable.
A lovely apartment. Very clean and spacious. Mirella kindly gave us a lift from the station and settled us in. She even left a few necessities, which were very welcome. She showed us several walking routes into Assisi and three nearby restaurants offering local cuisine. Each day we walked into Assisi and on Mirella's recommendation we walked through the Wood of St Francis, which gave us spectacular views across the Umbrian countryside (20 mins, uphill). We ate in the apartment and out in Assisi. The kitchen is great to use and there are plenty of pots and pans. We visited one of Mirella's restaurant recommendations called, osteria del mulino, (about 10 mins walk) the food was great and well priced. Assisi is a beautiful town and the frescoes in the Basilica of St Francis are a marvel. Overall we found Mirella's apartment very peaceful and nicely furnished. We had no problems but the family upstairs were available should we have had any.
Our host was not there but her cousin was. The neighborhood is lovely but getting around can be challenging. "From the apartment it's possible to reach Assisi in 15 minutes" is an odd claim. Better information about distances and food services would have been helpful. We needed a car, but fortunately the taxi service was good. For somebody without any Italian this could have been a bigger problem. We needed toilette paper, which simply should not have come up as a problem.
Once we found the place (DON'T follow Google Maps), it was a great place to stay. Down the hill from the town of Assisi, one can look up at the backside of Assisi (and the impressive St. Francis Basilica) from the backyard. Totally stunning scenery, and really nice apartment. It's rather spacious and accommodates four with ease. There were some issues with water leakage with the plumbing in various areas, but that didn't affect the stay much. The family upstairs (Mirella's on-site contact) were welcoming and friendly.
Mirella's apartment is situated in a most beautiful setting, right outside Assisi on a quiet country road with a view of San Francisco Basilica.
The apartment is tastefully decorated and comfortable with access to a lovely garden. Mirella's family upstairs are very helpful.
The only suggestion I would make is for there to be better signage as it is a challenge to find it.
L'appartement de Mirella est au pied de la Basilique d'Assise, entouré de verdure et la campagne est magnifique. Nous avons été très bien accueillis. Malheureusement le temps n'était pas idéal et nous n'avons pas pu profiter du jardin à cause de la pluie
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.
