We visited this converted monastery for a third time last week and the welcome we received was as warm and friendly as ever. The gardens are beautiful and the rooms beautifully appointed. Standing in the courtyard leading to the gardens it is as though time stood still centuries ago.
The restaurant is wonderful too.
There is so much to see and do in the area we could have stayed longer but we will return! another memorable trip!
