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.
Stefano and his family were lovely hosts. He came all the way to the station to pick us up, and was very accommodating and welcoming. The flat is absolutely beautiful!! We even asked if we could stay longer, but unfortunately it was booked up already. The location is perfect, very central, but in one of the beautiful side streets. Stefano and his family are based in their apartment right next to us, so whenever we needed help, he was there for us. He took the time to give us great recommendations. Not only did we go to the main sights, but we also had a lovely 8K walk to a monastery in the middle of a forest. I would highly recommend this room, and Assisi, which are beautiful. We will definitely be coming back!
Stefano met us at the station, provided some good local information and made sure we had everything we needed. The location was perfect and the apartment was very comfortable for the three of us. Our stay in Assisi was very enjoyable because we chose this apartment and Stefano was very welcoming.
Our stay in Assisi at Vico del Poeta was a highlight of our travels in Italy. Stefano is wonderful person and host. The apartment was perfect for us. It is situated in a quiet part of town up just a few feet from some of the most beautiful vistas. We enjoyed our morning croissant and coffee sitting out on a nearby ancient wall overlooking the Duomo and the entire valley. Breakfast was delivered in a basket each morning which was pretty sweet. The apartment is spacious, clean and well appointed. It was a great home to us for our three day stay in Assisi. I highly recommend to anyone who is visiting Assisi, one of our favorite Italian hill towns.
Stefano was a very pleasant and accommodating host who kindly meet us at the railway station, and dropped us off at a very early hour when we departed. The apartment was very comfortable and we really appreciated the delicious breakfast which he left at the door each morning.
A charming place in a magical town! The apartment had all the amenities we needed, and there are restaurants and shops nearby. Our host, Stefano, was fantastic. He surprised us by going the extra mile to provide for us and make us feel comfortable. His hospitality was the best I've experienced out of all of my 20+ Airbnb stays. Highly recommend!

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.
