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.
Lignum is the first and bigger of our studio apartments.
It's a 40 square meters local style apartment.
The large fireplace resides in the middle of the room in front of the comfortable double bed, to which add one extra single bed or a cot. The Terra-cotta tile floors and the exposed beam ceiling completes the ambiance. The kitchen is equipped with a stove top, refrigerator and everything you need to prepare your meals. The bathroom has a sink, bidet, toilet and box shower. The adjacent laundry room is equipped with a sink, washing machine and drying rack. Of course there is a private entrance to the apartment.
The Vico has its 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.
Via Jorgensen is a quiet and intimate alley just below the Rocca Maggiore, the ancient castle on the top of the hill where Assisi is located.
We are in the middle of the way, on the back of the church of Santa Maria delle Rose.
The danish poet J. Jorgesen chosed this small thoroughfare for his long Assisian stay.
Going trough the ancient arch (early medieval) in front of our structure, probably an ancient gate to the original village you find the nice belvedere of Santa Maria delle Rose: take a break to look to the beautiful landscape.
A few steps away down there is the cathedral of San Rufino: the frontage of the church (in particular the rose window) is one of the most known image of this town.
A rich presence of ancient details characterizes this area: we are going to meet the original core of the first roman colony, Piazza del Comune.
Go down by Via San Rufino: it's a short walk...
Here's the main square, the true heart of Assisi: the fountain, the municipal buildings and the roman temple of Minerva.
We only ask the respect of the usual rules of cohabitation.
The check-in is from 14.30
The check-out is before 11.00.
Stefano was an outstanding host. He went above and beyond in so many ways, including taking us to and from the station. His hospitality was gratefully received and his love for Assisi well placed. I highly recommend this beautiful and gentle town with a host to match. Mille Grazie
Assisi is a must see destination. It feels like a place lost in time that has the charm of many years ago. Stephano's apartment is the perfect spot to explore this village. The apartment had everything needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxed. It even had a real working fireplace stocked with wood for a chilly night. It is not often you can find this while on vacation! But what made the apartment unforgettable was Stephano himself. He is that special type of person who will go out of his way to help you and make sure your trip is memorable and you have everything you need. He went out of his way to drive us to the hermitage as we did no have a car. and when we realized that our train left very early in the morning and it was hard to find a taxi he personally drove us to the train station! Often times when traveling it is all about the sites and destinations and one tend to overlook the interesting people and kind people you meet on the way. We will not forget Stephano or his apartment. He made our trip to Assisi truly special. We hope to return soon. Thanks again for everything!

Although I stayed at Vico del Poeta only for one night, this has been one of my best Airbnb experiences to date. Stefano made us feel very welcome and comfortable, the flat was extremely clean and well decorated, and the location was ideal. I am looking forward to going back!
Perfect location and perfect host, with a great little apartment to enjoy this wonderful city. I would recommend!
Stefano is very nice, friendly and helpfull, picking us up at the train station. His place is very spacious and confortable, but not very bright. It's very central too, so it was perfect to visit the Giotto's frescoes at the basilica.
Stefano was warm and welcoming. Our accommodations were so clean and cozy. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The basket of croissants and goodies was a real treat. I felt like I was in another world. Thank you!
This apartment is the best choice for two persons when visiting Assisi. Everything is exactly as described above. The flat is located next to main square in a quiet little street - perfect for relaxation. The room is clean, large, with stylish interior, the kitchen is well equipped. Stefano is a perfect host, kind, attentive, he even met us at the station and took us with his car. Our days started in very good mood with his tasteful breakfasts he left for us in a basket at the door. We had a real vacation in this lovely town thanks to Sefano! Grazie mille! Maria and Miklos

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.
