The closest airport is Perugia, just fifteen minutes away (22 km) and in an hour an a half you can get to Ancona airport (117 km) and Florence airport is just over 2 hours away (187 km).

Description of buildings

Loving Assisi is a portion of a historical residence (438 marketable sq. m) with a 29 sq.m (marketable area) chapel, a private garden and swimming pool.


The residence

438 marketable sq. m - reception salon - kitchen - dining area - living room - lounge - 3 bedrooms - 2 bathrooms

The residence covers the whole ground floor and has direct access to an attractive garden with swimming pool.

From the main entrance, on the left there is a first large living room with fireplace, a kitchen and dining room overlooking the garden and, lastly, a majestic reception room covering almost 200 square metres which was carved out of a historic church.

To the right of the entrance a lounge with fireplace leads to the three bedrooms, one of which has a small en-suite bathroom, a further bathroom and a store room.


The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.
The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.
The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.

State and finishing

This residence stands on the remains of ancient Roman walls, which are still visible. It was also where the Confraternity of San Lorenzo was established in the Middle Ages.
This property still treasures a few details of its original structure, like inscriptions, part of the walls, and the buttresses of the original naves.

Over the centuries, this beautiful residence had undergone some changes until the 1930s, when the Countess of Berkeley bought it to establish an art cenacle attended by prominent personalities of that time.
The story of the residence and the Countess was published in the book "Beaded Bubbles. Un’Americana ad Assisi" by Molly Berkeley), with an image of the garden on the cover (https://www.orfininumeister.it/collane/spazi-momenti-culture/unamericana-ad-assisi-2016/).


Most of its floors are in handmade terracotta, some of which is very old, especially those in the former church which also features high ceilings with a cross vault.

Some of the inside walls are in exposed stone and feature fireplaces with historic carved cornices, coats of arms and decorations and the kitchen and one of the bedrooms features ceilings in wood with tiles.

The inside doors are also antique and made of solid wood with some exposed stone door frames.

External areas

Loving Assisi's position is magnificent: just a stone's throw away from Piazza San Rufino and at the same time with a private outdoor private space measuring around 765 square metres and a swimming pool and views over the fort and the hills around the town.

Use and potential uses

Its beautiful position – in the heart of Assisi with its global cultural and religious tourism appeal, and less than half an hour away from Perugia, historic and university town, and 40 minutes from Lake Trasimeno – makes Loving Assisi the ideal solution both for those looking for a main home and as a holiday home for contact with nature and a short distance away from Umbria’s main historic towns.
