I have holidayed in Italy with my family more than 20 times in various locations in hotel and agriturismo accommodation; Il Convento Mincione is as good as it gets.
This ancient property has been beautifully restored and is full of character and the accommodation is of a superb quality. The charming American owner and & her daughter are on hand for advice and tips but maintain a discrete profile.
We stayed in the 2-bathroom 1+ bedroom 'honeymoon suite' (on two floors) which was spacious and packed with charm: beautiful beams, stone fireplace, oriental rugs, good lighting, well appointed bathrooms. and it had a very large private balcony with barbque and wonderful views.
The pool is a good size with secure fencing to protect your kids and there is a separate hot tub. My 12 year-old loved the 'animal' pen...rabbits/quail/various other small animal which kids are encouraged to handle & feed.
A unique property and a wonderful, relaxing location.
