…a great stay here in Assisi! And Anne’s apartment is wonderful and feels just like home. The local artwork displayed everywhere is gorgeous. If you are fortunate engouth, get a tour with Anne: her insights are amazing and she is so knowledgeable. Iam only 13 and …a lot of things she talked about on her tours were interesting and fun for me. She is an amazing woman and I hope to be like her one day …she’s an inspiration to me in every way.

…Thank you, Anne, we had such an amazing stay and I’d love to come back again! ps This was a GREAT fourteenth birthday present!

Well, we’re at the end of a most delightful week. I wish it could go on longer. The hospitality, the organization and the singing. The concert in the Upper Basilica was magical… Thanks, Anne, for making it all possible. Hope to see you again soon. With love and best wishes.

What place to retreat to at the end of the day. A real joy to be so close to the piazza, the small town’s “living room”, and a short walk to the churches, museums, and life of this wonderful hill town. As a guest of Anne, you meet the locals, learn where the shops are for food stuffs, ceramics, linens, and most importantly the unique restaurants to sit and enjoy your meals, “piano, piano”. This place is a gem, ideally located, perfectly appointed, and comfortable for one or two, with the option of a mattress for a guest. My daughter visited me for a week, and Anne went out of her way to introduce her to the local color and farm families. I can’t wait to return.

As the end of my five weeks in Assisi – (four staying in “Il nidi tranquilo”) – comes to an end, I am reflecting on the wonderful times I have had – the marvelous people I have met and the friends I have made. The apartment has been an ideal home to retreat to at day’s end, whether I’d traveling to neighboring towns, sitting in the piazza visiting with new friends, or spending quiet meditative times in one of the many sacred places here. Thanks, Anne, for doing everything possible to make me feel at home.

Joe R, Rochester, NY – Il Nido Tranquillo

The apartment is cozy and comfortable and Anne was so welcoming and thoughtful.

We enjoyed her tours of Assisi (as her guest), Bevagna and Spello and her knowledge of art and history as well as insights into local life and culture.

We never would have found one of the best Assisi restaurants without her – where we ate three times. Franca’s cooking is amazing!”

…ahhhhhhh…..how does one spell “paradise”? Why, Nido Tranquillo, of course!! The perfect “home away from home” to relax, read and even cook a meal, after a long day of exploring the jewels of Assisi! I am on my 4th week of travel in Italy and I must confess that Anne’s sweet apartments is the BEST!! On a street only a few steps from the main piazza; yet, it feels like you are in your own little sound-proof home. Very quiet…..with skylights abive the bed and the kitchen table which allows not only the beautiful sky of Assisi to shine thru, but also the stars and moon which will lull you to sleep! Highly recommended!!

Where do I begin?? As I prepare for my trip back to the states tomorrow after 3 glorious weeks in “My Nest…..oooops, THE Nest”, my heart is warm and my love for Assisi and sweet,sweet Anne is overflowing! I now think of her apt as MY lil slice of heaven It is the perfect retreat after very full days of exploring, touring with Anne and eating my way into oblivion!
Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus many of Anne’s special touches. Quiet nights, sleepy mornings! It’s just the nicest place to stay when you’re visiting Assisi …a very easy walk to anywhere in town, plus all the restaurants!!
I had such fun on her rural tour….quite a humbling experience and the wine tasting in Spello?? Well, no words to describe that one! SO MUCH FUN!
She even invited several of us to her home for a meal cooked by her and her sweetheart of a husband and their son!! I call that hospitality with a capitol “H”!!
Thank you sweets… you made this part of my trip…the trip of my lifetime. I expect to see you next in Texas!!!! At my house!!
Much love…

Thanks to Anne for personalizing Assisi for us – we are now in love with another Italian city. Our stay at her delightful cozy little “nest” was more than we ever expected, so tastefully decorated with ceramics, artwork, antiques and modern pieces…

All the necessiities are here as well for cooking, laundry, reading, relaxing, watching TV… We have totally enjoyed our time here and so appreciated Anne taking the time to introduce us to the local shopkeepers and friendsThanks again, Anne, for sharing your love of Assisi and Italy with us.

Lynn and Charles G. – Denver, CO – Il Nido Tranquillo

We stayed at the IL Nido Tranquillo apartment for five days in late September. It is a hidden gem of the quaint historic back streets of Assisi. Only one block off of the heart of Assisi’s Piazza del Commune, it is a quiet respite away from all of the energy of the tourists…

It is truly quiet and tranquil! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook some of our meals and to make espresso in the morning…

…All said, it is a great apartment and we would highly recommend it and Anne!

Len J. – Minnesota – Il Nido Tranquillo

This apartment has been everything I expected and so much more: for a week, this has been my “home away from home.” Everything I have needed is here, comfortable and cozy. …and it’s so quiet here, especially at night!

Anne, the tours with you give me insights to Assisi that no guide book can possibly offer. Grazie!

It’s now back home for me but I am leaving a piece of my heart here in this apartment on a quiet street in Assisi. I will be back.
