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.
Guests are welcome to book the properties for a minimum of 3 nights. For stays longer than 2 weeks rent can be negotiated. There is no maximum duration of stays.
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.
The Assisi area
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.

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.
