Casa Papa Giovanni (UMA121)

Assisi Umbria

House of the Sacerdote Diocesano

Casa Papa Giovanni provides beautifully presented rooms and spaces in an historic and stunning location. Set within the walls of Assisi, it is only a short walk from the major city attractions, such as Saint Francis Basilica. A rooftop garden is a highlight for guests looking to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.

This venue lies between the World Heritage listed Basilica di San Francesco d'Assisi and Basilica di Santa Chiara. The Saint Francis Basilica was built after Saint Francis' canonization in 1228. It was completed in 1253 and the lower church hosts frescoes by renowned late-medieval artists Cimabue and Giotto. In the upper church there are frescoes of scenes in the life of Saint Francis previously ascribed to Giotto and now thought to be by artists of the circle of Pietro Cavallini of Rome. The Basilica was restored after being badly damaged in 1997 when an earthquake hit the town.

It was a good choice.
- , Norway (September 2017)
A wonderful restful stay for a reasonable price. Incredible view of the valley from my window. Loved the common terraces/balconies for prayer, reading, reflecting, or just enjoying the view. Fan is a great asset in the summer to keep room comfortable. Breakfast was simple, had good variety and filling. Nice middle point and easily accessible to sacred sights, food, and shopping. San Francesco is down the hill and San Rufino/Santa Chiara is up the hill. After I had booked, a priest acquaintance studying in Rome recommended Casa Giovanni and I too recommend it to others.

It was a very comfortable, beautiful space! It was lovely to pray in the chapel.

Our group was delighted with this property. The location was ideal, the rooms - especially the rooms with views - were excellent. The outdoor spaces - terraces, garden and roof space - were much appreciated by everyone. We recommend Casa Papa Giovanni without hesitation.

The hospitality could not have been better. The kitchen accommodated our late arrival and gave us a delicious supper. All the time we were there they made us feel so very much at home. The rooms were slightly thin walled. The beds were comfy, they were made for us every day. The rooms were kept wonderfully clean. Breakfast was lovely, supper when we wanted to eat in was excellent value, and served wonderfully. We felt so at home and were sorry to leave. Although our Italian was not good the hostesses (one could hardly call them staff, it was more like family) always made an effort to understand us, helped us with transport and sand paper (even sandpaper!) when required. The chapel was easy to use, and well supplied. We enjoyed the outdoor spaces for lunch and relaxing. We had such a wonderful stay that we were all very sad to go home. Thanks too for a rather early breakfast on the last day. All so very accommodating and kind.
