The actual owners are descendants of Countess Giulia Cileni Nepis belonging to one of the ancient families interlaced to Assisi historical events.
It sleeps up to 6 in 3 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  




Assisi is a must-seen destination not only for the figures of Saint Francis (1182-1226) and Saint Claire (1193-1253) who continue to fascinate for the freshness of their message; but also for its marvelous Basilicas, enriched by the works of the greatest Italian painters as Giotto, Cimabue, Simone Martini, and Lorenzetti. Assisi's typical medieval urban structure, as well as the surrounding beautiful countryside offer many artistic and gastronomic itineraries for your unforgettable holiday.
