About Owner Property Manager

My Italian husband grew up in this house, and we renovated it together. I am an American artist/writer and our two children were born in the land of St. Francis.

Why Owner Property Manager chose Assisi

This home is filled with family history. We have two apartments, one upstairs and one downstairs. Il Gatto Mammone is our downstairs guest apartment that we rent out regularly. We also occasionally rent out our larger 3 bedroom 1 bathroom upstairs apartment. Please inquire if you are interested in a larger space. The location of our apartments is magnificent!

What makes this apartment unique

It is all about location. We are smack dab in the middle of the historic center. You can walk to everything! You are tucked snug in the medieval stones walls of this historic town. You can enjoy your whole vacation without having to drive anywhere. Assisi is a very safe relaxing place to vacation. There is so much to see and do. Guests from age 3 - 93 will be delighted. There is ancient history, abundant art, spirituality, breathtaking nature, good shopping, good food, and of course - gelato!

This 800 year old apartment was restored personally by the owners respecting the historic nature of the property. You can still see evidence of the medieval doors and stone window sills. Sleep within walls that were built around the time that St. Francis walked the streets of Assisi. This apartment has a charming, well designed, and comfortable friendly feel to it. Attention was provided to create nice lighting. We renovated the apartment so that our American family could come and stay for longer periods. We want you to be as happy and comfortable as our own family.

The apartment is located right on the main square. Check out the Roman temple to Minerva, let your kids run around by themselves exploring the little medieval streets while you sip a Campari in the bar at the foot of the staircase. Visit the sites and when you want to get away and experience the deeper side of Assisi take off hiking on the trails of Mt. Subasio. Hunt for mushrooms and wild asparagus when in season. Find a tiny side street and paint with water colors. There is always something to do. We can arrange wine tastings, bookbinding, Italian language and cooking lessons. Just let us know your interests!
