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.

What a perfect place: up and out of the tourist area, Stefano's apartment was very clean and comfortable for my stay. He is very helpful and friendly, and so sweet with a morning basket of treats. I felt very pampered. Communication was easy. The apartment is modern and light. I will definitely be back to Assisi and stay at Stefano's apartment.
Tout simplement merveilleux. Le studio est situé dans une rue charmante et trés calme, il est rénové et décoré avec beaucoup de charme italien, d'une propreté remarquable avec toutes les commodités (kitchenette équipée, produits de base, une douche super). Stefano est un hôte d'une extrême gentillesse avec beaucoup d'attention pour nous aider a passer un sejour de qualité. Le petit dejeuner est royal et ... Avec une touche de gentillesse et de générosité à l'image de Stefano. Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette adresse.
Grazie mille a Stefano
Stefano's place was amazing. We even cooked in the apartment! It's a lovley location, close to the top and close the centro. We are staying in a hotel for our next trip to Assisi as it was pre booked and I'm already disappointed we are not back with Stefano. He helped with our onward travels also. And was very personable! Beautiful family also! :)
One of our favorite places in Italy. Stefano and his wife and children were warm and welcoming. He provided everything he promised and more.
The apartment was in a convenient area and close to many sights and cafes.
The apartment itself was charming and comfortable. The basket breakfast each morning was appreciated as well. We would highly recommend a stay here.
We have stayed in 11 AirBnBs in eight counties over the last couple of years and this is absolutely one of our favorites. No one else picked us up at the train station upon arrival, gave us a mini tour, and provided a continental breakfast every morning with a personalized water color note. The studio is very well designed, decorated, tidy, comfortable, and situated in the old city close to the St. Rufino Cathedral (2 minute walk). Stefano and his family are delightful and very welcoming. We would highly recommend this exceptional host and property without reservation.
Stefano was a fantastic host and we loved this stay. The apartment is small but cosy and it had everything we needed to cook a lovely Italian dinner. WiFi was good closer to the doorway. The exposed stone wall inside the apartment is beautiful and it was a peaceful visit, we only wish we could have stayed longer than a night.
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.

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.
