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.
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!
Una experiencia maravillosa, Asís es hermoso y tranquilo y si a eso le agregamos que Il Vico del Poeta es un lugar genial y Stefano un excelente anfitrión es la combinación perfecta. La pasamos excelente y sólo me queda dar gracias a Stefano por tan buena (website hidden) por ciento recomendado, sin duda volveré a este lugar
Where to begin? We had a really delightful stay at The Poet's Alley in Assisi, probably the high point of our multi-generational travels in Italy, which included my 21-year-old son and my 84-year-old father. Host Stefano Migliosi enriched our travels through his attentiveness and helpfulness together with his engaging intellect and personality. Stefano clearly wants the best for his guests and takes evident pride in providing this for the truly interested traveler. The apartment is very well located in an historic section of town a short walk down to the Duomo and the main town piazza. A gorgeous setting and a very quiet alley for nighttime sleep. The interior has many nice amenities, well-supplied kitchen, a great shower, and a nice feel and layout. Stefano personally delivers a breakfast basket with fresh-ground coffee, fresh croissants, rolls, juice, etc., which is waiting for you whenever you wake up. When my father needed a ride back to the apartment from Piazza Santa Chiara, once again Stefano was there for us and drove down to pick us up. Stay at this apartment! The cost is a very good value. And then immerse yourself in the artistic and architectural richness of Assisi around nearly every corner.
My husband and I had a lovely time in Assisi, and Stefano was the perfect host. Our communication with him was always prompt and clear, and our arrival process was very smooth. The apartment was even better than we expected from the photos--plenty of space, a clean and organized kitchen, and a good Internet connection as well. One of the best surprises was Stefano's breakfast. We found it hanging on our front door in a cute little basket, full of thoughtful goodies and nutrition. It was a most wonderful anniversary gift to us, and Stefano didn't even know it was our anniversary--that's just the kind hosting he provides. We cannot think of a single thing Stefano could do to improve. We were completely pleased and recommend this place 100%!
Everything was really great! Thank you Stefano for being such a kind and helpful host! We had a wonderful and relaxed time at your place where we were able to cook, wash our clothes and recharge for the rest of the trip!
Stay here if you visit Assisi! Stefano is the nicest guy. Although we arrived before check-in time, he picked us up from Assisi station and took us to his place so we could leave our luggage. He showed us all the good places to visit on a map and said to return anytime in the afternoon to move into our room. The room was really impressive. Everything you could need and really clean and spacious and had everything we needed to cook. You can really tell Stefano takes pride in his property and really cares about what he does. Again, if you visit, stay here!!
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!

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.
