We recently stayed in this boutique hotel in the Beautitude
room which could easily accommodate 4 people and was therefore, very much large enough for only two of us! The nicest surpise was that the room came with a 'large' garden with fig (which were ripe and oh so tasty) & pomegrante tree as well as a small balcony which overlooked the valley to the distant hills/mountains.
The staff (namely Serenna) must have a mention as they were extremely helpfull!
We took a short ride to their other residence which is a health centre to try out the jaccuzzie, steam room, sauna etc. which was nice to wind-down just that little bit extra.
Beautitude also had a wardrobe in which was a couple of electric rings, a large fridge and a well used expresso machine! We took advantage of this for a couple of nights and cooked some of the local fayre from the butchers and fish merchants in town (5 mins away). 'Cooking on your holiday ' you say, but if you enjoy it, to use the freshest of ingredients was a real pleasure!
Assisi itself is quite hilly, so be prepared to take your time, especillay if it is hot.
The main sites, as previously mentioned are all within a short distance.
Eating out could prove expensive, but do look in some of the back-streets to find little gems of shops/restaurants with more relealistic prices. All-in-all, we would most definately go back and use this as a base to explore more of this beautiful area.
