Description

The Space

3-bedroom village home in the historic center of Assisi

A private courtyard across the street from a monastery is the centre of this holiday townhouse apartment in Umbria. A single bedroom upstairs on your left looks out on the courtyard while a spacious vaulted living room opens up to your right as you enter. Beyond the living room is a brand new kitchen with a breakfast counter and beyond that a unique and romantic dining room with vaulted stone ceiling and even your own grotto leading down into the soft stone heart of this miraculous city of art and spirituality--a perfect spot for storing the marvelous wines of the region you will want to try while visiting! Upstairs from the living room is a library/reading corner for curling up with a book, the bathroom with shower, and a corridor leading to the master double bedroom with queen-sized bed and a second bedroom nook with french double bed (piazza e mezza). There is a also a single sofabed in the living room for use in winter months as the single bedroom off courtyard is not heated. Comfortably sleeping 3-5, furnished with elegant Italian contemporary design pieces chosen for your comfort and to contrast with the cool stone walls of this year-round center of attraction.

Guest Access

We provide a wifi dongle, but the thick stone walls within the old town centre of Assisi means that the connection is highly variable and we cannot guarantee a constant level of internet access. There are many nearby cafes that have hotspots available should our internet access be experiencing difficulties.

Interaction with Guests

We will meet you with the keys and welcome you to the house. We can pick you up at the train station. You can always reach us by phone or email.

The Neighborhood

In the heart of the old town but off the beaten tourist tracks. Restaurants and cafes nearby.

Getting Around

Regular bus service nearby for reaching the train station in the lower town or connecting to regional bus travel. Municipal parking lots nearby.

I've been living in the Spoleto area for more than 25 years and have been helping friends who have holiday homes in the area find great guests who will enjoy staying here for the past five years. I make sure the houses are ready for your arrival and are always even nicer than you'd expected. I want to ensure you have a great holiday and come to love and hopefully return to Umbria whenever you can. I also have a holiday cottage in upstate New York on a golf course on Otsego Lake, close to Cooperstown, on a property I share with my brother.
