Further details

The Minciotti family have been living in Palazzo Minciotti for generations. They are now letting out three of the apartments in the Palazzo in order to raise cash for the maintenance of this wonderful and historic building, which is just opposite the Cathedral of San Rufino. So the owners will be living in a separate apartment in the Palazzo and will always be available if need be.

The Umbria region

Umbria is at the very centre of Italy and is a very green region. There are many medieval towns, such as Perugia, Orvieto, Foligno, Todi, Spoleto, Gubbio which all deserve a visit. There are also many Franciscan sites such as Santa Maria degli Angeli, San Damiano and the Eremo delle Carceri, all at a very short distance from Assisi.


Assisi should not need an introduction. It is a well preserved medieval town with Roman remains and for the past 800 years it has attracted pilgrims as the birth place of St Francis of Assisi. The Mount Subasio Regional Park is only a few miles from Assisi and is ideal for walks in all seasons. All around Assisi there are olive groves, as the vegetation is mediterranean. The town itself is full of artistic treasures. The most famous churches are the two Basilicas of San Francesco, built one on top of the other, and the Basilica of Santa Chiara. They are some of the finest examples of medieval churches anywhere. There are also Roman museums to be visited, and other ancient churches. The main feast day is 4th October, in honour of St. Francis. There are other festivals throughout the year, such as Calendimaggio in early May.

"Beautiful home with heart and soul in the loveliest piazza of Assisi."

Elegant apartment located on the top floor of the large house of a wonderful Assisi family, overlooking the magnificent San Rufino cathedral and piazza. Full access to the family's lovely huge private garden. Beautifully furnished, all conveniences, also extensive tourist information about the city and the area. Like the rest of Assisi, there are stairs to climb and voices from the piazza below, which is actually lovely for lovers of true Italian life. Parking is not at the property but is nearby.

"Magical, idyllic, peaceful Assisi apartment"

We were so lucky to come across this superb apartment online. The photos don't do it justice. Lovely owners, and beautiful books and pictures - cultured and comfortable, particularly if you have an interest in the history of Assisi and the life of San Francesco. The huge garden and outside seating area is an added bonus (although not warm enough for us to use in early April). Thoroughly recommended.

"A memorable stay in a wonderful location"

We enjoyed a fabulous stay in San Rufino and San Lorenzo. The Palazzo is in a wonderful location with breathtaking views over the valley and staying here gives you a real sense of local life in Assisi. The flats were spacious and cool and had excellent facilities for a group with mixed age ranges, schedules and needs. Both adults and children loved the garden, which was perfect for family breakfasts – we could even pick grapes and tomatoes to nibble on. The pool was an added bonus and was great for cooling off from one of the hottest summers on record.

We also encountered very warm hospitality from the Minciotti family. Our large family group (13 in total) were with a wedding party and Anna Maria made us feel incredibly welcome and will be part of our memories of the wedding day itself. As the two flats were on the top floor of the Palazzo the accommodation had an independent feel to it, but with the knowledge that if anything was needed the Minciotti family weren't too far away. The stairs weren't an issue for us and were part of the charm of an old building, but in terms of luggage and mobility they are something to be aware of.

For many in our group this was their first experience of Umbria and we couldn't have hoped for a better introduction to the region; we will treasure idyllic memories of our stay. If you want to wake up to cathedral bells, the buzz of small town Italian life and breathtaking views San Lorenzo and San Rufino are the perfect choice.

"Views across Assisi - WOW!"

Apartment on the top floor of the Palazzo was very well appointed and comfortable for six persons, with quality furniture and fittings throughout. From every window were views across the old city that certainly made being on the third floor worth while. We were made very welcome on arrival and lots of useful information and an essential "Assisi Card" was provided. We will remember our stay with great affection.

"A wonderful few days in Palazzo Minciotti, Assisi"

Palazzo Minciotti is in a fantastic location in the beautiful town of Assisi, within easy walking distance of various sights, including: the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, Basilica of Santa Chiara, Chiesa Nuova, Santo Stefano etc. The apartment (San Rufino) is very homely, spacious and with a fully equipped kitchen (a very impressive range of utensils is provided!). There are magnificent views, overlooking the Italian countryside and Cathedral of San Rufino; one evening we even had the pleasure of witnessing a classical concert outside the cathedral! However, perhaps one of the best things about lodging in this impressive accommodation, is the owner Anna Maria - whose friendly welcome and constant hospitality added to this wonderful Italian trip!

"A perfect,generously large and comfortable apartment in the best location."

We were greeted by Anna Maria who showed us where to park just round corner, explained how cooker etc works in the superb apartment, and around the wonderful garden with another building for cooking(!) meals outside; views to die for both from the apartment and gardens. Brilliant location just by the Duomo. Everything in easy walking distance. You can eat out every night in the local restaurants, or eat in, plenty of good local shops for supplies, and pop out for the odd cappucino, ice cream, glass of wine or all three! Everything open late and walking around in the evening is a pleasure. Easy to get to every part of Umbria being almost central, and bus and rail access excellent. We've been all over Italy - North and South - Venice, Florence, to Puglia and Scicily, in many good to very good rental accomodation and hotels - but this is our favourite to date - high praise indeed, and we shall be back. Book now and have a great time.
