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. Here over the remains of St. Clare's is also the crucifix of San Damiano which was moved in 1257 by the Poor Clares.

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.

einfach nur zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

sehr nette Gastgeber, ausgezeichnete Lage, 5 Minuten vom Krankenhaus entfernt, 10 Minuten zur Stadt,

fantastisches Haus, großzügig, geschmackvoll, gepflegt. Prinzipiell zwei getrennte Wohneinheiten. Reizender Hund der Vermieter, die zwei Häuser entfernt wohnen, aber äußerst diskret sind. In 10 Minuten zu Fuß in San Damiano, Guter Autostellplatz, umzäuntes Gelände.

L'appartamento che ci ha ospitati corrispondeva alle immagini e siamo stati accolti in maniera perfetta dalla proprietaria. La casa era accogliente, pulita e dotata di ogni comfort inoltre la dispensa era fornita dei beni di prima necessità e nel bagno c'erano prodotti per l'igiene e per la pulizia della casa. Consiglierei,e l'ho già fatto, questo immobile ad amici e parenti. Si possono raggiungere a piedi i luoghi di San Francesco: San Damiano, Rivotorto e volendo anche Assisi. Grazie ancora per l'ottima ospitalità.

The perfect location for visiting Assisi.

  • 5 of 5

Assisi is within walking distance (less then 20 minutes), which it makes the perfect location to visit this beautiful and well-restored town of San Francisco and Santa Chiara. The garden with its nice flowers and figs, tomatoes and olive trees create a comfortable and tranquil atmosphere. The house is spit in two apartments. We rented the lower apartment, which was very nicely restored with an eye for detail. We didn’t hear much of our neighbours from upstairs. We’ve shared the garden easily.

Erholung nahe der traumhaften Altstadt von Assisi

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben schon mehrfach Urlaub in gemieteten Ferienhäusern in Italien (Umbrien und Toscana) gemacht und können daher sagen: das bisher am besten ausgestattete Haus!

Sehr sauber, moderne und helle Bäder, Küche und sonstiges Gebrauchsmaterial - es ist alles für einen entspannten Aufenthalt vorhanden!

Besondere Highlights:

Blick von der Terrasse auf Assisi (sowohl morgens als abends ein Traum)

Altstadt von Assisi zu Fuß erreichbar; jedoch sollte man die signifikante Steigung bedenken, welche gerade bei sommerlichen Temperaturen iVm hoher Luftfeuchtigkeit (war diesmal atypisch gegeben) extrem antrengend ist. Daher der Tipp: bis zum Krankenhaus fahren und gegenüber auf dem öffentlichen Parkplatz parken; die restlichen 2/3 des Weges sind mit mäßiger Steigung gut zu bewältigen

Das Haus wurde als Gesamtobjekt gemietet; die Überraschung war groß, als wir vor Ort zwei unabhängige Appartments fanden (die Bilder auf der Webseite sind inzwischen aktualisiert). Wir haben uns, weil es für uns 3 Personen ausreichte und direkten Zugang zum Garten bot, für das untere Appartment entschieden.

Einziger Wermutstropfen: bei den Witterungsverhältnissen war an Schlaf kaum zu denken; hier wäre eine Klimatisierung (optimal) oder wenigstens ein Ventilator sehr wünschenswert.

Das Objekt befindet sich offenbar immer noch in der Weiterentwicklung und ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!!!
