Four of us stayed here as part of a walking tour so our initial approach was on foot from the village below, passing through the most delightful scenery. The road curves and suddenly one sees the abbey, surrounded by green hills. Once past the entrance (incorporating reception and a bar), there is a huge expanse of lawn before passing through another gateway into the old monastery. Drinks are served on the lawn which is a delightful place to relax and take in the surroundings.
Our rooms were very good. My showerroom was very small but perfectly adequate for a 2 night stay. The bedroom was spacious and the beds comfortable.
Breakfast was excellent, served in a lovely vaulted room, with tables outside. Given the location, it is probably better to have dinner in the independently-run restaurant adjacent to the monastery, which serves very good food served with great friendliness. Otherwise, due to the location, it would be necessary to walk down to the village or drive further afield.
All staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
An abiding memory will be the wonderful birdsong signalling the approach of dawn - quite magical.
It was very hard to leave and I would not hesitate to recommend this establishment for travellers looking for peace and quiet in a stunning setting.
