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.
