Renting on a nightly or weekly basis, this special gem of a historic residence is located in the historic center of Assisi, between the Basilicas of Santa Chiara and Santa Maria Maggiore.  As you walk via S. Agnese, just a few meters from St. Clare’s square, you will come upon an ancient 14th century stone arch on your left with a massive wooden 18th century Franciscan door.   Beyond this door lies San Crispino, a medieval refuge that formally housed Franciscan brothers. Just above the arch there is a shrine dating back to 1330 portraying Our Lady and Jesus, St. Francis, St. Clare and other two Saints, by the same painter who decorated St. Damiano cloister (another important religious monument in the Franciscan history). From this ancient medieval complex, you can enjoy superb panoramic views: on your left, the wonderful façade of the Basilica of St. Clare, on your right the evocative view of S. Maria Maggiore, behind you the Dome of Chiesa Nova and St. Rufino Cathedral, to the top, the imposing Rocca Maggiore and, to the front, the green Umbrian valley surrounded by soft rolling hills.   

This striking building has been renovated without spoiling its ancient characteristics and has been restored into seven outstanding apartments with the same names as the elements of the Canticle of the Creatures of St. Francis.   They have been expertly preserved to maintain the integrity and taste of the original structure while also offering modern amenities and a high level of comfort.

All the apartments are well equipped.  Antiques, elegant rugs, exquisite curtains and impressive frescoes create a comfortable atmosphere in a tranquil setting.  Guests can relax and admire the view of the Valle dell’Umbria from the apartments or from the equipped large roof garden.  Amenities include satellite TV, telephone, hair dryer, safe box, cooking corner with fridge, shuttle service to San Crispino's spa.  Easy access by car.  Moiano parking facility is very close and offers guests a special price.  Bus and train access at nearby Santa Maria degli Angeli.  Independent heating.

Each apartment has a kitchenette cabinet with a small cooking unit/sink and refrigerator allowing for breakfast and simple meal preparation.  Breakfast can also be provided for a small fee.

Apartments rent on a nightly or weekly basis with a 3 night minimum.
