The hospitality and welcome at Santa Colette was lovely. I was a solo traveller on my first visit to Assisi for thirty years. Laura and the volunteer hosts were able to help me with useful local knowledge and recommendations of places to eat and how to get to various places They lent me a guide book which gave me background information and aided my understanding of St Francis and St Clare and their followers. I had an amazing view over the valley and enjoyed beautiful sunsets . My room was suitable for my needs with access to the exit door onto the road outside . The lack of curfew meant I could enjoy meals out or wander down to the Basilica before it closed . It was a blessing that the volunteers came from Quebec which meant they spoke French and English . I enjoyed sharing a nourishing simple breakfast with them and my fellow guests. I couldn’t always connect to the WiFi but any issues with this were quickly resolved . The grounds were very peaceful to sit and read with a wonderful view .The location suited me as it was 10 minutes from Francesco Basilica and walking distance up the steps and slopes to the various Piazza .i was able to attend mass and other prayers during the day . Even though they were spoken in French I felt a part of it and tried to use my school girl French to read or sing the text .
I would recommend a visit to the convent ,a place of calm and reflection .
My communications with Monastery Stays were prompt and helpful .

I loved this place! It wasn't in the center of everything, but it was an easy walk to both San Francesco and Santa Chiara. Also, the pilgrim houses are accessible by keys you get when you check in so there's no curfew, which means you can enjoy dinner and walking around after without worrying about getting locked out. Breakfast options are a little limited (there's only bread and muesli), but they have espresso! Also, important to note, there's no one at the desk from 9.30-17.00, so don't plan to go and just drop off luggage. If you get there between those times, you're stuck until you can check in. They also have a library with books you can borrow and a beautiful garden and a chapel, and the rooms are simple but a good size. I would stay here again!

The sisters were very welcoming.
And they spoke French, which in my case was excellent.
I will likely go back to provide volunteer work.
I felt part of the family.

Very easy to find the Monastero; it's a five-minute bus ride from the Assisi train station and then another few minutes walk up. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well-maintained, and the gardens were an added luxury.

Staying at Monastero Santa Colette made my experience in Assisi even more beautiful! The staff and nuns were very kind and were truly in their best disposition to be of help. Every room has quite the view! I loved that the guests are invited to participate in daily mass and prayers or to pray in silence. Although I traveled to Assisi by myself , I felt cared for and secure. The location is less than 5 minutes from the Basilica of St. Francis and everything is walking distance. The farthest I had to walk was to Santa Maria degli Angeli. The next time I visit Assisi, I hope to stay at Monastero Santa Colette. It was a blessing!

Philip - Greater Manchester, United Kingdom (June 2015)
My stay at Monastero Sainte Colette, Assisi was excellent. Their reception staff, volunteers and sisters were excellent. It is in an excellent location in Assisi and is a peaceful spiritual haven in a busy tourist city. There is a wonderful atmosphere in the monastery and the mostly French speaking guest were very friendly and chatty. I would very strongly recommend the monastery which is also very good value.
Dr - Co. CLARE, Ireland (August 2014)
Sisters and staff were wonderful and helpful. The only difficulty was that internet was not available except for purchase. But we could go to local cafés and get online there. Location was wonderful, so QUIET, beautiful view, relatively close to a bus stop. Would strongly recommend.
Paul - CA, United States (June 2014)
Monastero Santa Colette is a big facility catering for many pilgrims especially from France. Service is carried out by paid receptionists and volunteers and is very efficient and friendly. Standard breakfast in common refectory. The good part is that there is no curfew; there is an access door to the street that you can use (key-locked) at any time. Overall a comfortable stay.
