We loved staying here for an Argentine Tango weekend (they have one every last-weekend in May, and 2012 is already lined-up with Buenos Aires tango dancer, tango film-maker & author of tango books, Chan Park, so we shall be back then) and it was perhaps the best holiday we have had in over 25 years! A local organizes English-Italian "Tango Argentino" long weekends and all activity happens at this medieval monastery, now a 'bella' mountain hotel. Great food! Lots of space, free WiFi and views to die for. It is located at the entrance to a mysterious medieval village, once a middle ages citadel of great repute, where you will be lost in time. Only 35 minutes to the sea too! 100 stars out of 100.
