Great Views, But Lot of Steep Steps
Posted Jan 5, 2016
Be sure you connect prior to arriving so you know what the current arrangements are on getting down the steps and into the property. We didn't have the best experience on that part so it took an hour before we got in. There are a LOT of steps (300+; steep). We only had backpacks but it was raining and even with the lift... So I'd say you'd need to be prepared for that many at that depth going up and down.
Yes, the view IS amazing! So if you are into photography, this is quite nice. The general areas of the property are very nice. There is a pool as well. I would imagine in summer this would be great. We were there in Jan and our room felt cold, water took about 5 minutes to get hot and shower chamber is tight. Good towels. Hair dryer provided. Bed - headboard kind of falling off; mattress was ok. Sheets nice. Breakfast was great: "grilled" cheese, warm croissant and choc dough ball; yogurt and cereal, toast, jam, coffee...very plentiful. It's a drive all the way down the hill to get into Assisi.
