This is an amazing small hotel housed in a convent from the 1700s. It is on the edge of a darling town, right by the sea. Walking down the hallways of the cloister is a real experience of time travel!! We stayed in a suite that had two bedrooms and a small kitchenette and views to the sea. It would... More

We loved this accommodation in the lovely town of Vila Franca do Campo- finding it the best location for exploring the whole island. Having read some of the negative reviews, we considered changing our booking as, at 34 weeks pregnant, I was concerned I would need my home comforts. Luckily I trusted the good reviews and found this sanctuary perfect... More

It's location is perfect , centre point in the island and the facilities of the second largest town , with restaurants , beaches and marina . You've got to be prepared to the fact it's different however it's so peaceful and chilled . It's... More

Overall we had a wonderful stay at the Convento de Sao Francisco. We stayed for one night in June and wish we could have stayed longer! Staying in the convent is like stepping back in time, it has been wonderfully restored and well kept with stunning views of the Atlantic. The owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming...

I cannot understand any of the three or fewer stars reviews. As other people have said, if you want a chain hotel with standard rooms and facilities this really isn't the place for you, but it is clear from the websites that this is not what you will be getting. Yes there are some discoloured patches on the plasterwork but... More

What an amazing place to stay. Beautiful old building, with so much charm and character. You can almost feel the monks, quietly going about their work and prayer. A lovely, simple breakfast was provided. Run by a friendly family, who made us very welcome.

If you look for a really special place to stay - this is it! A beautifully renovated moastry, ideally located with a beautifful view on the Atlantic and a nice garden with a great swimmingpool. Vila Franco da Campo is a beautiful and quiet little town. You should not miss out on a whalewatching tour with Terra Azul. Their office... More

Plus points are the excellent breakfast, the peacefulness of the place. We found it to be clean. The staff were friendly. This is really a unique place, full of character. It's not a traditional hotel though ie no TV in room so may not suit everyone.

It was a very unusual place for staying: a monastery like only now monks left this house, and we were alone there!:) A little bit scary but an unforgettable experience to feel in 17 century. Very nice breakfast and hospitable staff.
