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.
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.
An apartment of 40 square meters with everything that you needs to be independent. Charme and confort are inclusive in the price.
Il soggiorno presso la struttura gestita da Stefano è stato davvero magnifico, era proprio ciò che cercavamo.
La nostra stanza si trovava al piano terra, dotata di bagno e cucina e ricavata in una struttura antica e perfettamente ristrutturata.
E' in pieno centro e quindi non raggiungibile con auto, ma a letteralmente due passi da tutte le principali attrative di Assisi.
Stefano ci ha accolto e dotato di tutte le informazione per visitare la città, e ci ha pure fatto trovare una buona colazione la mattina di buon ora.
Stefano came to the station to pick me and my parents up as we arrived on Sunday night and it was difficult to find public transportation to his home. On our way back to the place, he showed us some important spots for food which was really helpful.
We really enjoyed breakfast basket delivered every morning during our 2 nights stay. He sent me a message to check whether everything is okay. Me and my parents stayed in Italy for 10 days this time and when I asked my dad for his favourite place, he said Assisi not because of the beauty of the town but also for the hospitality that Stefano has shown us. He said he will recommend the host and the house to his friends back in Korea if they want to go to Assisi.
This is my third time to Assisi and I have tried three different accommodation type. I can confidently say that I will be staying at Il Vico del Poeta again whenever I come back to Assisi.
Stefan had to save us from getting lost in Assisi. He found us and took us to the parking place and even carried one of our bags to the apartment. He went way beyond his duties to make us feel welcome.
Stefano is a wonderful host. He gave me clear instructions for finding Vico del Poeta. After checking me in spent! Stefano pointed out on a map the paths I could follow to the various sights in Assisi. The room was larger than I'd had other places, clean, comfortable, and very attractive. Stefano drove me to the train station when I left, which I greatly appreciated. I'd definitely stay here again.
Nous etions 2 adultes et notre fille de 19 ans chez Stefano pour une semaine au mois de juillet. Malgré les nombreux touristes d'Assise, nous avous apprécié le calme de la maison et sa situation facile d'accès en haut de la ville. Merci à la grande disponibilité de notre hôte, à sa gentillesse attentionnée, Nous avons aussi apprecier ses talents d'artiste. Nous reviendrons dans cette jolie ville,c ' est sûr et nous redemanderons Vico del Poeta !
Vico del Poeta was our favorite Airbnb stay in Italy! Stefano speaks excellent English and picked us up at the train station. The flat was clean, comfortable, quiet and perfectly located to roam the town but also get away from the busy tourist sites. Stefano gave us excellent information about the town as well. We felt welcome.
Our stay in Stefano's house was really great. Stefano welcomed us very well and gave us all details we could need to live in the flat and in Assise for a few days. The flat was very quiet and fresh (very pleasant during summer). We enjoyed listening to Stefano's children playing outside during the day. We felt home! Stefano is very attentive to his guest in the menu of breakfast and through a real but discreat presence. Thank you very much Sttefano!

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.
