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 Chiara are wonderfully warm and welcoming hosts. Their hospitality made our stay in Assisi memorable one. The apartment was charmimg, spacious and incredibly clean nestled in roman architecture. The highlight was sipping on espresso watching over a view of the town a few steps from the door. It was a wonderful surprise having a basket of breakfast goodies to start our day. Will stay here again without a doubt.
Stefano et sa conjointe sont les hôtes parfaits. Vous voudrez devenir des amis de ce couple charmant. Le logement est absolument parfait. Je suis un maniaque de la propreté et l'endroit était absolument impeccable. L'appartement est parfaitement situé, calme et beau. Cessez vos recherches et réservez à cet endroit pour un magnifique séjour à Assise.
Stefano's quaint little studio is full of character and charm, in keeping with the medieval roots of Assisi. But the long narrow bathroom and shower (modern and very clean) would suit only slim people.
Stefano is a wonderful host. He met us at the train station and dropped us off when we left. He was very attentive to our every request and his simple Continental breakfast basket was a welcome bonus.
Our stay at Vico del Poeta was lovely! The apartment was perfectly situated to explore Assisi and Stefano was a gracious host. He really cares about your stay in Assisi and gave us a map and oriented us to exploring the town. The continental breakfasts in the mornings were perfect and got us going for our exploring. We would certainly stay here again.
Stefano was an amazing host! We had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful family after he picked us up from the train station. Once we got to the apartment we were blown away at the amazing location and cozy, clean interior! The pictures don't do it justice! When you think of A++ service you think Stefano. Thanks for making our trip to Assisi so memorable!
This was a spacious apartment, well appointed and we very much enjoyed our stay. The owners of this flat were very gracious to help us find the place and carry our luggage. Also very informative and helpful in planning our visit. Really enjoyed talking to Stefano. The parking is relatively close to this apartment and it is on the ground floor.
Everything was fantastic. When I say everything, I mean everything. The apartment is beautiful and located in the heart of the center in enchanting Assisi. We cook a lot so we enjoyed the kitchen and buying local products. The apartment is very comfortable and comforting. It is quiet and right next to Piazza San Rufino which came to be one our favorite piazzas.
Stefano met us at the nearby bus stop and even drove us to the station on our day of departure. Stefano was super friendly, helpful and professional. He was always available to us if we needed him and had wonderful suggestions and information about Assisi and Italy in general.
The basket every morning on our doorstep made the start of our day special, memorable, and tasty. My daughter has strict dietary needs and Stefano took the time to listen and find what she could eat for breakfast. All in all, a perfect experience. Assisi is good for the soul. We hope to return soon and stay with Stefano again.
What a delightful experience! The apartment was lovely, just as advertised and outfitted with everything we needed. Stefano was a magnificent host - he went out of his way to meet us at the train station, and provided excellent information, including a map and recommendations for sights and the paths to walk. It was wonderful to have breakfast waiting at our front door in the morning. We highly recommend Stefano and Il Vico del Poeta!

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.
