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.

We absolutely loved staying with stefano, so much we changed our plans to stay an extra night! Assisi is absolutely beautiful and the apartment is so fantastic, spotlessly clean, in a fantastic location a 5 min walk to the main piazza and very comfortable. We loved it and would definitely return.
We had a great time at Stefano's apartment. His studio was very clean and tidy. It's very authentic in style for Assisi with the exposed rock. Stefano was very accommodating and even picked us up from the train station and after we had arrived took the time to show us where to go in Assisi with a map. We highly recommend this studio apartment and look forward to come again!
Stefano was the perfect host. The accommodation was clean, and elegant, very comfortable. And Stefano was there to greet us and give us helpful information about Assisi. Every morning we were greeted with a lovely basket of foods, juice and coffee for breakfast, and if we had any questions at all, Stefano was there to guide us. We had a wonderful, wonderful stay.
There is only one word to describe our experience at Stefano's place: "MAGICAL"
We are very very glad to have booked our stay with Stefano as everything was PERFECT with him. From sending us the smallest details to reach his place, to the cleaniness of his unit! There are so much nice things to write about our stay with Stefano, but I will just keep everything brief and simple!:
1) Stefano provided us very detailed written directions, maps, and diagram of photos on how to reach his place from the Piazza.
2) We drove to Assisi and there is a free parking spot which is just 3 mins walk to Stefano's place (Stefano sent us full details on where exactly the car park is!).
3) Stefano is an excellent host! He made sure we are at our utmost comfort and provided us details on how to cover Assisi within our short 1 day stay.
4) The apartment is just so so wonderful! From its design, character and cleaniness. This is just the perfect place for a romantic getaway! And it looks exactly (if not, BETTER) like in the photos!
5) The shower here is EXCELLENT! Perfect temperature, and full on water pressure with rain shower. Imagine being pampered under the rain shower after a long day walk.
6) Stefano is the perfect guy to host anyone if you ask me. We had an unfortunate incident and where we forgot to switch off our car lamp, and killed our car charge. Stefano was there to help us jumpstart our car via his own car early in the morning whilst he was being busy cleaning up his other units! Being a total stranger in a foreign land, his help was a God sent to us! How generous and kind hearted he is! Thank you Stefano!!
As an overall, Stefano's place was one of the highlight of our Assisi trip. We wished we could have stayed 2 nights more but we were short of time. If you ask me, "Will I stay here again?". Without hesitation, "YES DEFINITELY I WILL".
It was the best Airbnb experience we have had. Stefano is a fabulous host, always helpful and friendly. He did everything for us to have a wonderful stay. It also brought us our breakfast every morning in a cute little basket. The room itself is extremely well located. Tastefully decorated, quiet, romantic, it was the ideal place !
Furthermore Stefano indicated to us free parking locations near the room. Perfect if you come by car.
I recommended this location without any doubts.
Assisi is a beautiful city and the overall is unforgettable.
Thank you again Stefano for this magic stay !
Stefano è stato un fantastico padrone di casa. Disponibile, ha risposto alle nostre (website hidden) ha lasciato un cestino con la colazione fuori dalla porta, molto ricco. L'alloggio era di gran charme in un punto perfetto per visitare la città. Purtroppo a causa del caldo insopportabile siamo stati nell'appartamento nelle ore più calde e l'energia "dirompente" dei bimbi al piano di sopra ci ha tenuto compagnia.
We had a really good time in Assisi at Stefano's place. The apartment is very cozy and romantic. Stefano and his wife are very gentle hosts and they did everything to make our stay comfortable. We would like to come back any time!

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.
