Assisi is a must-see destination, not just for the timeless fascination of Saint Francis (1182-1226) and Saint Claire (1193-1253), but also for its marvelous basilicas, enriched by the works of the greatest Italian painters such as Giotto, Cimabue, Simone Martini and Lorenzetti. Rarely is a place so full of the spirit and memory of a single person as Assisi is with Saint Francis. A symbol of peace around the world, this ancient hill town retains a timeless air of gentle tranquility. Assisi's urban structure as well as the beauty of its surrounding countryside offer the promise of an unforgettable holiday, combining the best of both town and country.

The La Contessa apartment is located in the heart of Assisi, on the noble floor of a palazzo dating back to the 17th century and set in front of the majestic Cathedral of San Rufino. The palazzo, among the most beautiful in Assisi, has a stone façade, vaulted ceilings, and ancient stairways, all restored with great care. This 200 square meter apartment sleeps up to six people in three double bedrooms and three bathrooms, making this a great choice for three couples traveling together.

A private little path inside the palazzo (30 m) leads to a rose garden. While the apartment gives the feeling of being in the heart of a medieval town, the garden, with a view of Rocca Maggiore, makes you feel like you are in the countryside! Outdoor furniture provides a place for dining al fresco or just to relax and enjoy the view. There is a small above-ground swimming pool (the only pool in Assisi). The garden and pool are shared with four other apartments located in the palazzo.

A car is not necessary. You can walk to markets, restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops, as well as to all of the important works of art that Assisi has to offer.
