About this listing
The “Vico del Poeta” is some B&B and some guesthouse: the original idea was to create a place with which satisfy all kinds of request. Long or brief stays, summer vacations or cultural stays for a week end. The main building is located in the historic centre of Assisi and offers to its guests two mini-apartments. The hospitality is characterized by an important component of kindness. Guests know that they can ask for our help in every moment: we are helpful but discreet. The apartments (close to the main square and to all the most important monuments) are in a quiet but suggestive alleyway.
Petra is a studio apartment of 25 square meters recently restructured and thought for a couple: its nicest charateristic is the mixture between the original and ancient structure and contemporary equipments with details of design and art. Cozy and intimate the studio apartment is however completely autonomous. The kitchen corner is equipped with two eletric stoves, refrigerator and everything you need to prepare your meals. The bathroom, builded in a old fireplace has a sink, bidet, toilet and box shower. There is naturally a private entrance to the apartment.
The Vico and its apartments have their strong point being in the same time very close to everything and in the real historical centre but also in a secondary alleyway really intimate and quiet. You feel like at home, an very relaxing home.

Stefano and the B&B exceeded our expectations. It was so nice to come and stay here at this peaceful and welcoming place. Stefano met us at the train station and gave us a lift to the property and explained everything and provided us with a map and suggested itinerary for Assisi. He was very kind and generous and also gave us information about getting to Siena, our next destination, and also gave us a lift to the bus stop when it was time to leave.
The accommodation was cool despite the hot weather and was immaculately clean and modern, while also being rustic and charming. Everything we needed was provided and Stefano went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. The internet also worked well.
The location is perfect, just far enough out of the centre of town to be quiet, but easily close enough to stroll down to main sights, restaurants, shops etc. Assisi was beautiful, one of our favourite places in Italy, and we couldn't have picked a better B&B. This was the best AirB&B experience we had on our trip to Italy. We highly recommend staying with Stefano.
This space is INCREDIBLE! It is completely immaculate and remodeled with modern ammenities in an old brick room. Front door is at ground level with an opening window. Bathroom is luxurious and large with a rain shower, shower head. The hosts are kind and even drove us to the train station. The only minor thing is you can hear their three kids playing above you. There was also no Wifi available. Assisi is magical!
Stefano was a gracious host. Although a bit difficult to find, he provided great directions and a map to help direct us. Breakfast to your doorstep each morning. A peaceful and spiritual town. Have to go back!
Stefano was extremely helpful with excellent directions to our accommodation. He also gave us a map and some tips about Assisi. The accommodation itself was beautiful - part of the old Roman city. We thought the room was be small but it was surprisingly well laid out with with everything we could need and more! I'm so glad we stayed in Assisi itself - everything was within walking distance and it's an amazing place to visit! We would love to stay there again.
My 14-year old daughter and I spent a very quick 12 days in Italy and both of us would say the highlight was Assisi and staying at Stefano's lovely (website hidden) daughter and I enjoyed escaping the cities for a while and staying in a smaller place. Stefano went above and beyond what a host needs to do. He picked us from the train station on his wedding anniversary and gave us a lot of information about the area. He also dropped off a lovely breakfast the next day and took us back to the train station. I wish I had spent a few more days here exploring the area. Thank-you!!!!!
Great little studio just a short walk to all the cafes and pubs. Beautiful design and cool cave-like temperature despite the hot day. Stefano was very gracious and helpful.
Stefano is great! He found me when I got lost on arrival and offered a ride up to Eremo... His breakfasts are generous and delicious. I couldn't has asked for more gracious, professional and warm care. This is my second stay at "Petra" studio. It's a wonderful combination of ancient Assisi stone arches and walls with contemporary additions. I cannot recommend the room or the host more highly.

About the Host, Stefano
Hi, I'm Stefano and I'm the host of "Il Vico del Poeta", a small guest house in the centre of Assisi, town of peace and magic atmospheres.
It's a long time I wanted to create a place through which share my qualities, using the house, and the unique place where I live as a picture frame. I like to talk with people and discover new point of views coming from the world and I like when I see my guests satisfied for their choice (because I know that I'm part of that choice): in a few words, when I see happy people around me.
I think details make the difference; to make a job with passion probably is not enough but it's the first step in “a well-done job”.
My idea was to keep close what I love (my family, art, my home) exploiting the possibilities offered by the place where I live: in short to create a kindly and familiar way to give hospitality. Added to this I liked the possibility to preserve a place, a historical building full of memories, sharing with people some of those memories. My advice is the free mingling with the local colours, even if for few days or few hours: to be a traveller, not a tourist (because each of us is in his small a traveller).
Assisi has many different and interesting faces: going around without a strict plane, carried away by the maze of streets is the best way to find our self and bringing back home an amazing quietness.
Each person has the possibility to express an own private desire because everything here, including the stone, seems as having an answer, a suggestion for soul.
Here you can enjoy even just look to the sky.
Every word is a whisper and the time seems really rest.
