Just returned from a wonderful week's holiday staying in part of a lovely Family Home just 5 minutes walk to Assisi's Porta Nuova. Apartment has been freshly renovated, enjoys a sunny location looking onto the family's olive grove, with lovely views of Assisi. Perfect.
With daily flights from Stansted to Perugia and a 15 minute taxi drive from the airport the journey could not be easier. No need for a car because city sights and restaurants are within easy walking distance. All restaurants visited provided good quality local Umbrian food and wines at good prices. A stunning World Heritage Site; words cannot do it justice.
With a bus stop one minute from the Family Home, the railway station is only 15 minutes away (buy tickets at reduced prices from local stores or pay more on the bus) which made daily train journeys to the beautiful Umbrian towns of Perugia, Spello and Spoleto easy.(Buy train tickets at machines at Assisi station but must be validated at the platform machine before boarding train).
We did two great walks direct from the apartment. The more rigorous route to the summit of Mount Subasio via the Eremo delle Carceri (St Francis's hermitage) and a gentle hike via the other Franciscan sites of San Damiano to Rivotorto and on to Santa Maria degli Angeli.
