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 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vico del Poeta (Petra apartment). Stefano is a kind, considerate, and thoughtful host, available for any needs (he lives next door) and yet gives guests all the privacy they want. The apartment is quaint and cozy, clean, and well-equipped (good and plenty towels, good quality mattress and bedding, kitchenette more than sufficient for a few days' stay, nice shower with good water pressure). Since it is on the ground floor in a medieval house, there is little natural light, but for a short stay that does not detract from the experience. The location is superb, a quiet side lane just a 2-3 minute walk from the center of Assisi. If you have never been to Assisi or other medieval Italian towns, you should be aware of the fact that it is mainly limited to pedestrian traffic. Take this into consideration if you are traveling with heavy luggage; maybe best to ask Stefano to help you with logistics. The directions he provides are incredibly detailed, but once you get to Assisi you will understand why!
We are excited to leave a review for Stefano!!! He is one of the nicest hosts that we have ever encountered along our travels with airbnb. Stefano knows that he has an amazing city into which he can welcome his guests but from the first moment his goal is to make one's stay in Assisi the absolute best that it can be whether that's for a few days or a week. He is tireless in his efforts to do this. First things first.... He picked us up at the train station on what was a very busy day for him. His newly renovated apartment, in a very historic building, is clean, fully stocked, highly comfortable, heated, and has a great shower!!! Stefano provides breakfast at your doorstep each morning!! Breads, juices, coffee, milk, yogurt. A treat each morning!! He freely shares his knowledge of Assisi which is very helpful given the incredible setting. He provided transportation to local attractions and eventually back to the train station. We had a marvelous time staying in the apartment next to Stefano and his little family there in Assisi. We highly recommend him and his apartment!!!
Our stay at Il Vico del Poeta contributed to a great stay in Assisi. It was located in a quiet area but was close to the main square. It was clean and very well-appointed. Stefano was a wonderful host, picking us up from the train station and giving us an introductory drive around the town. He was a gracious host, making sure that we had what we needed. The breakfast was simply delicious. I'll definitely stay at Stefano's place next time I'm in Assisi.
Stefano is an amazing host and I would honestly recommend his accommodation to everyone who visits Assisi. He was simply a delightful person to deal with, so gentle and caring. Every morning he delivers new breakfast items to your door, such variety to accommodate every persons needs. The location of his home was perfect. Away from the maddening crowds of tourists (of course you are a tourist but that doesn't mean you don't need a break from others) but close enough to the centre to make popping home throughout the day an easy walk. You are very close to S.Rufino and the views just beyond the door are amazing. It is a short walk to bus stops to go to S.Maria D.Angeles. Parking is also close by. Stefano even collected us from the station something we did not expect. His home has e erything you need, it is well heated, the bed is extremely comfortable, there is a good television and wifi- I cannot recommend this young man and his venue highly enough and only wish I could return. Stefano you are an absolute gem and I hope you are kept so busy with bookings.

Stefano et son épouse sont deux personnes merveilleuses qui vous faire vivre la ville dans une expérience unique et authentique. Le petit-déjeuner dans le petit panier est une vraie surplus. Maison chaleureuse et très pratique pour visiter le centre historique
Stefano is the perfect host. Even though we only stayed one night in Assisi, his lodging was my favorite of our trip. His welcome started with his offer to pick us up from the train station, which was greatly appreciated. He proceded to introduce us to his very comfortable, cosy flat. Everything was clean and working. The flat is as described and photographed. He leaves a breakfast basket on the doorstep in the morning. I must say the bread and croissant were the best I had on our trip. We were able to leave our luggage with him until we needed to catch our train to Rome late in the afternoon. While he couldn't take us to the train station, he was able to take us to the bus station and even had some spare bus tickets that he generously shared with us.
All and all, Stefanno made our trip, short though it was, to Assisi very memorable. I would love to come back and stay again.
The studio, and Stefano, were wonderful. Stefano picked us up at the train station (which we were not expecting) and dropped us off when we left. He provided us with a sumptuous breakfast every morning, left in a basket outside our door. And the studio room ("Petra") was perfect: The kitchen was well enough equipped for cooking, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom modern. The location is unbeatable: a quiet section of the old town, right at the top of the hill, only a few minutes' walk from the central square (Piazza Commune).

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.
