Church of San Damiano

San Damiano is the ideal starting point to better understand the life of St. Francis, is in fact the site of the conversion of Francis, in which the Holy listened to the voice of the Crucified, "Go 'and rebuild my house." He restored the church and adapted the Proto for Santa Chiara. Two years before his death, always here, he composed the Canticle of the Creatures.

Sanctuary of Rivotorto

The Sanctuary of Rivotorto that preserves inside the Sacred Hovel (sec. XIII): a modest shelter chosen by St. Francis as a place of residence for himself and his first companions. It is defined by many as "the cradle of the Franciscan Fraternity".

West of the Sanctuary, about 1 km, there are the churches of S. Mary Magdalene (sec. XII) and San Rufino d'Arce (sec. XII). Towards the east, at about 2 km, the Church of SS. Trinity (Sec. XII) and from the city, the Church of St. Giovannuccio (sec. XVI).

All these places have witnessed episodes of the most salient related to the conversion of the saint and the founding of the Franciscan Order.

Not far from the house is a riding school for horseback riding and a wonderful characteristic farm with a herd of donkeys, ideal trip for families with children.

Assisi Old Town

Basilica of St. Francis

1230 retains and holds the mortal remains of the saint, the first preserved in the Basilica of Santa Chiara. Francis himself pointed to the bottom of the hill city, once called Collis hells, as a place where he wanted to be buried. That hill was renamed Collis havens and on it was built the basilica formed by two churches and the crypt which houses the remains of St. Francis. Amongst them, the decorations with frescoes by Cimabue and Giotto.

Basilica of Santa Chiara

It began in 1257 with the construction of the church and the adjoining convent of the Poor Clares, which since 1212 had lived in S. Damiano. Built next to the church of St. George, where he was buried and where he was buried provisionally Francesco Holy Aug. 12, 1253.

Very Charming!

  • 5 of 5

This Casale was very spacious, comfortable, clean and within easy walking distance to the bus. It was decorated in such a pretty way with lace edges to the linen and a wonderful decor. The kitchen was very well equipped and had very nice china and other beautiful dishes. The garden was lovely and we enjoyed sitting outside on their nice furniture.

Michela was very sweet and made sure we were completely set up. She was very responsive to all the communication with her before our trip as well.

We would highly recommend this location to families, couples and friends traveling together.

Bucolic Setting

  • 4 of 5

We were searching for a peaceful place to recharge and found it in this home. It's a short way out of town, easily drivable in a few minutes. It was clean and stocked with some basic food items. Some clarification: the stonework apartment is on the first floor and really is one bedroom with a combined kitchen/dining/living area. The more modern looking apartment is on the second level and has 2 bedrooms (one with twin beds). We found the shower to be unreliable; hot for the first few minutes and then ice cold. The kitchen was only outfitted for the barest of cooking; there was no sharp cutlery that we could find and no real baking/roasting dishes for the oven. Michela did not always answer my texts in a timely manner but we managed to communicate nevertheless.

A great location for exploring Assisi and Umbria

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four was quite comfortable during our stay. The apartment was naturally cool and comfortable. The kitchen had all the cookware we needed and there were even a few staples to get us started. Pre-stay communications were timely and informative. Our only suggestions for a better experience were for better directions. They were okay, but could be better. A bigger number on the house or roadside picture would help. Even so, it was a great place to stay and we'd go back.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place where we could feel like home and that's exactly what Michela provided for us.

The house is spotless,very clean, everything is provided .From cutlery to a hairdryer and washing machine ,everything is there.

The best thing is the garden that comes with lovely view and a gazebo.

Assisi is in walking distance(about 20 minutes to the first supermarket).

I recommend this property to everyone who wants a home away from home

Nice, Peaceful Stay near Assisi

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice apartment that was spacious and clean for 5 people. We stayed in the upstairs unit. The location was great. Only 5 minutes from Assisi and 3 minutes from San Damiano Church and a short drive from the other major sites in the area. It was very peaceful away from the hussle and bussle. Only drawback was just having one bathroom for 5 people and no dryer but I understand that is a premium commodity in Europe. We also could not get the stove to work, but it was not a big deal. The owners provided good directions and met us on arrival with good coordinating. They only take cash so have it on hand if you stay here. Nice location. Among the best we stayed at during our 15 day trek through Italy. I would recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Grazie per la sua recensione, mi dispiace che non abbia trovato l'asciugacapelli che era in bagno..... spero di riaverla come ospite in quanto è stato molto ordinato e cordiale.
