Absolutely WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot put into words how wonderful our stay was!!! Father Michael & Miguel were the most gracious hosts we have ever dealt with!!! Their kindness and knowledge made our stay in Assisi not only seamless, but also unforgettable!! The apartment had the most perfect location (We even did a tour and ended up walking past the apartment & our guide was really impressed we were lucky enough to have such a central location)! It had everything we needed and was spotless!! I give this our highest recommendation!!! Wish I could give it bonus points!!!

Owner's Response: Most valued guests It was a sheer delight to welcome these guests to our apartment. From the moment of their arrival there was immediately a friendly bond between us. This is more valued even than normal courtesy. Their appreciation of everything in and around the apartment was shown by the respect and care they took of everything. We most highly recommend these guests to all homeowners. We wish them well in their travels and look forward to the opportunity in the future to welcome them back to our apartment. This would be a real joy and blessing.

A wonderful summer in Assisi!

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I stayed for the entire summer....and didn't want to leave! The apartment had everything we needed, including a washing machine and a fully-stocked kitchen, and the location simply cannot be beat: everything in Assisi, from the Basilica to the supermarket, is easily reached from the apartment! There are numerous restaurants and small shops nearby, and within a minute, we could be at the taxi stand in Santa Chiara, for longer trips. With the availability of taxis and trains, we had no need of a car, and thoroughly explored Umbria and Tuscany from our home base of Assisi.The apartment's unlimited WiFi allowed me to work from Italy, as well as look up anything we needed to know, and there was plenty of additional information about activities, restaurants, and local events provided for guests in the apartment. Miguel and Father Michael welcomed us warmly and made sure that we had everything we needed to be comfortable; we now count them as dear friends, and feel fortunate to do so! We hope to return to Assisi soon, and will surely stay in this apartment again.

Owner's Response: It's really lovely for find guests who respect everything in one's property and appreciate its particular features of interior decoration and central location, while also taking tender care of the plants in the window boxes in the hot summer. But, what's more, above all, if we were able to give more than a five star rating to these recent guests we would. For the nicest quality of these guests,Cory and her daughter, is that we were delighted to become friends from the first moment of meeting them. It was thus quite sad to say 'goodbye' when they left. But, we hope that this is only 'arrivederci' - as the Italians put it - since hopefully we'll see then again and have the great joy of welcoming them most warmly to Apartment Elena, our home that's now their's here at the centre of Assisi in "the green heart of Italy."

It was perfect for our stay. The parking was convenient. The apartment was a short walk to all.

Miguel was very helpful. Apartment spacious, clean and well decorated. We wish to return to the pink and white stone allure of Assisi.

Terrific location

  • 3 of 5

Located on a quiet street, we loved the location and the nice division of space for 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is simply furnished and comfortable. Our only problem was that the fireplace was not working and it was December/January and that was a main reason for taking this apartment. So if you want that, be sure to clarify.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had such a great experience at Apartment Elena in Assisi. The owners were hospitable, gracious and very helpful with parking and with getting get oriented to the city. The apartment --

up a lovely via from Santa Chiara Basilica within the city walls -- had everything we needed. This comfortable dwelling was a great place to begin our Italy adventure! We would definitely make this our base again -- and recommend it without reservation.

Owner's Response: It was great to welcome such a polite and nice family. They were very appreciative of the city and the property and very interesting to talk to. We hope next time they visit we will have more opportunities to share our love for spirituality and St Francis of Assisi.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment to be perfect for our purpose. It was ideally located where we could cover the beautiful setting of Assisi. The welcome was smooth and easy and they were very concerned with our well being. The apartment was a good size for our party of 4 and the amenities, (sheets, towels etc.) were better than we expected.

We did not cook or spend much time there other than visiting, but truly enjoyed the apartment an d would like to stay there again in the future. Good value.

Owner's Response: It's always a joy to receive guests, who are appreciative not only of the central location in Assisi that makes it easy to visit the various artistic and religious sites, but also of the comfort and amenities provided by the apartment. These guests were prompt in paying and neat and caring of everything. They would certainly be welcome to back anytime they return to this city and are recommended to other apartment owners.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is located at the Historical Centre of Assisi - the centre of Franciscan spirituality, religious festivities, cultural medieval events, italian language and culture courses.

The position is perfect for seeing the town - a little quiet street between the St Rufino's Cathedral and St Clare's Basilica. The apartment has many interesting classical features - beams, terracotta floors, medieval archways.

Restaurants, bars, wine shops and supermarkets are all at walking distance, as well as the main bus stop, free and payment parking.

It is very easy to arrive at Apartment ‘Elena’: many daily trains connect Assisi to Rome, Florence and other places. Assisi is only two and a half hours by train from Rome or Florence.The newly opened Perugia Airport called Sant'Egidio has made Assisi more accessible to the world. This Airport is just 15-20 minutes from Assisi. Car Hire is available here.

The historical centre of the city – where the apartment is located- is only about ten minutes from the railway station following a scenic road. A frequent regular local bus service connects the station and the city, stopping at Porta Nuova conveniently very near the apartment. For those coming by car, the city offers many safe car parks at a short walking distance from the apartment.

Assisi presents the opportunity to enjoy beautiful art and architecture together with the spiritual experience of places associated with franciscan origins - such as San Damiano, Porziuncola, the Basilicas of St Francis and St Clare. Apart from the treasures of the city of Assisi, visits can be made to other nearby places, like Perugia, Montefalco, Spoleto, Gubbio, Spello, Bevagna - all famous for art, culture and wine tasting, etc... The city of Assisi is also situated inside the Mount Subasio Natural Park, which offers the visitor the opportunity to appreciate and experience nature's beauty.
