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 is an extremely generous gentleman. From the moment I arrived he offered to help with anything I needed.
He even offered to pick me up from the bus station, and he drove me to the train station when I left - I would never expect such kindness.
Breakfast in a little basket on my door step each morning! Again, I didn't expect that. Stefano thinks it is just natural to be so kind and generous with his time - he is a very special host.
The apartment was perfect, with a kitchen, I could have cooked anything I wanted.
Stefano gave me a map and marked places he thought I would like. He is so smart, creative and interesting, he gave me the perfect welcome to Assisi.
I could not have wished for more.
It's in a very convenient spot, just a 5 minute walk from a local bus station, which has regular buses.
Everything is perfect - just as the name of the apartment :) Stefano kindly collected us in the train station and although he couldn't take us back to the station the next day, he took us to the main bus station so we didn't have to carry on big luggage and walked a long way. The apartment itself is clean, beautiful and u can see many details for customer's convenience. The breakfast is great and the kitchen has everything. Assisi is such a beautiful small town. It makes u feel peaceful right u are there. We hope we can stay longer......Thank u Stefano:)
Extremely great experience! Stefano is very good host, he pick up us and see us off at station by car. He is warm,patient and friendly, satisfied our various needs. The room is very cozy and comfortable with the appropriate decorations, live in here just like come back to the middle century~ the bathroom and the bedroom all very clean and new. The breakfast is amazing! Very plentiful and enrich! I'll come back and recommend to my friends. Assisi and this apartment both are unforgettable.
Stefano was the perfect host! He picked us up at the train station as well as dropped us off, and left us an amazing breakfast every morning. He gave us all the information we needed and we knew he was there if we had any questions!
The apartment is so beautiful-just as pictured. It's clean, unique, and quiet. We loved the convenience of the stovetop, fridge and wifi.
It was an amazing stay in what I would say is the most beautiful town on earth!!
My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the end of May. Stefano gave impeccable service and the value is very good. The renovated apartment was perfect - a good combination of original details and modern conveniences. A very quiet location, we felt that we really experienced Assisi and not just slept in accommodation - Grazie Mille Stefano!
Our stay at the Vico del Poeta was wonderful, and Stefano was a fabulous host. The apartment was clean, tastefully decorated, and contained everything we needed. Stefano was flexible in checking in and out, answered all of our questions, provided us with lots of good info about the town and was overall very friendly and considerate of our needs. We had a wonderful stay and would love to go back!
We were welcomed immediately when Stefano is the ultimate host! The absolute best airbnb experience that we have ever had. He picked us up from the train station. We arrived early and Stefano, being the ultimate host, had worked hard to clean and prepare the apartment for our early arrival. He heard there would be rain and wanted us to be comfortably settled in the apartment. The apartment had everything and more than what we expected. Each morning there was a breakfast basket waiting for us at our door. Stefano checked in our us periodically with helpful information. He even dropped us off at the Hermitage of St Francis one morning. There was no limit to his generosity.

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.
