The animal lover will revel in the frescos and artifacts dedicated to animals everywhere as part of the mark of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, on this town. This picturesque hill town draws the lover of religious and artistic history to its environs, and the Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi, which was completed in 1253, is a world heritage site. By renting an Assisi villa, you will feel as if you are a part of an historical movement that today continues to fascinate and evoke passion from people all over the world.

Traveling around the old village by foot gives you the sense that you are living the true vita italiana and at each turn you will find yourself facing a cathedral like the Basilica of Santa Clara, that is sure to take your breath away with its massive buttresses, stained glass windows, and frescos from the 13th century. A special treat is the upper church of St. Francis's basilica, which holds frescos thought to be painted by Giotto that illustrate Francesco's life and depict his deep connection with animals. In your Assisi villa, you may enjoy the luxury of your own private Italian residence, where you can design your days as you wish.
