Relais L'Antico Convento
Reviewed 24 February 2013

We enjoyed a fantastic week at this Convent. The appartments are lovely, we stayed in the one with private evening sun terrace which was really good. the bed-room upstairs is an old church, so it is really a special experience. the convent is placed in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by hills, it is so beautiful. the pool and pool area is very nice, also the barbecue area. You can make nice excursions in the afternoons/evenings to lovely villages such as Perrugia, Asissi, Montone, Gubbio. we would love to go back, (2 adults and 2 kids). We were the only guests during the week we stayed and it was just perfect to have this very special place to yourself. Very sweet receptionist who recommended good restaurants and visits. Very friendly owners who visited while we were there.

Room Tip: some of the ground level appartments smelled bad. I don't remember which one. I would recommend...

I intended to write this review months ago. What a lovely place to stay. Joan and her daughter took great care to ensure we knew how to drive to the property and gave us a wonderful run down of what to see and do in the area.

The apartments are located in a gorgeous, carefully renovated convent. Very clean, quiet and perfect for our family. We traveled with a 3 year old and a 5 year old and they had a ball. The pool is lovely, the outdoor hot tub was delightful and the space perfect for two little girls after a week spent on the streets of Rome. My husband didn't want to leave the grounds for two days, preferring to just swim and take in the incredible views.

I took the children for several day trips by myself without any trouble using Joan's instructions. We prepared several meals in the small kitchen rather than drive to a local village for each meal which was a treat as we had picked up some delightful supplies from local markets.

Much better than any hotel and a far more unique and memorable experience for our family.

Our fouth family holiday (2 adults, three children) in Umbria. Our first time at Il Convento, which I do not hesitate to recommend. We stayed in Il Re appartment. Good sized, clean, very comfortable beds. Lovely location and well kept old buildings. The pool is far nicer than Il Convento's photos suggest, with a good shaded area and lots of sunbeds/chairs. Joan is very helpful. I understand she is selling but staying on in a managerial capacity.

A wonderful place with all the luxury of a pool, hot tub, both with a panoramic view over the hills, spacious rooms with authentic furniture and all the equipment you need.
Sitting on the sunset terrace, having a nice BBQ and watch the rolling hills of Umbria - what more can you expect from a holiday home.
But in addition to all this perfect setting the host, Joan, makes the place truly special - just follow her blog 'Joan's view of Umbria and NYC', there is nothing to add. In short: New York Style in Umbria.

Want to thank Joan for her wonderful hospitality. A consumate concierge with a personal touch. The Convento is on the onset a little secluded, however, once oriented, the location is ideal for day trips around the region. Once settled, and with Joan's concise directions, everything was at our doorstep.....Cortona, Lago Trasimeno, Perugia, Umbertide, Urbino, Gubio, Montone, Assisi, Deruta, Todi and Orvieto. The Convento has a wonderful location, with views, and plenty of "nature". Care is advised on the roads at or near dark for the wild boars, deer, and wild hare. Cuckoo birds will be your alarm clock along with mourning doves and other song birds. For a self catering apartment, it is well appointed with a local "alimentari" with great salumi, porchetta and fresh pecorino cheese. The grounds around the Convento are beautiful with olive groves and farms. Luigi the "guard dog", will more than certainly appreciate a scratch on his belly and is a great companion for either a morning or evening stroll. Will definitely plan a return visit as well as highly recommended to all who wish a quiet, relaxing, intimate getaway.

Room Tip: We stayed in room Dieci...great patio.
