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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lovely Stay in Assisi
Apartment Elena was the ideal spot for our long-term stay in Assisi. The location is convenient and afforded us easy access to the center of the city and its important sites - all within easy walking distance. It also has easy access to the Piazza Matiotti bus pick-up to the train station in Santa Maria degli Angeli for those who plan train travel. It was well equipped, comfortably furnished, and we could not have asked for more responsive, as well as charming, hosts.
Our guests were most friendly and showed their appreciation for everything about the apartment - its commodities, characteristic features of wooden beamed ceiling and quiet location in the centre of this city of Saints Francis and Clare. They were punctual in arriving and departing, as well as paying the deposit and balance. They were neat and tidy in their respect and care of the furnishings and facilities provided. Sharing in conversation with these guests similar viewpoints about various items of common interest, we hope to keep in contact with them as newly made friends and would certainly welcome them back at any future time and also cordially recommend them to other owners of apartments.
A Stay in beautiful Assisi!
My friend and I visited Assisi in November, 2016. We were spending 5 days there and Apartment Elena was so comfortable. Miguel met us at the train station (we arrived after dark and had the pleasure of seeing Assisi all lit up on the hill!) and after a quick drive through the town he took us to our apartment. It was exactly as shown in the photos - 2 comfortable bedrooms and bathroom and a very nice living room with kitchen. Windows looked out on the street that took us down the hill to St. Clare's Basilica. We were able to easily navigate our way around town and enjoy the sights of this special place. Walks in the evening led us to great eating spots. Miguel even returned to the apartment quickly when we failed to hold the key correctly to open the front door! Father Michael was under the weather and we missed meeting him - perhaps another time! Our stay was delightful - everything about the apartment was comfortable - and we would recommend Elena to anyone planning to spend time in the home of St. Francis.
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...
