We had a fantastic time at Old Saint Mary's Convent.
The property is absolutely beautiful.
The buildings are charming, the grounds immaculate.
You walk outside to gorgeous gardens and the smell of lavender.
The house has that old charm but all the "new" comforts.
The room (we stayed at Sister Ancilla) was big enough to accommodate me, my husband and our two children (4y and 2y old) very comfortably. The bed and beddings are heaven.
The bathroom is very big and you can choose between the old charming bathtub or the powerful shower.
The room is equipped with air conditioning (hot and cold), but we chose to leave our windows open for the nice lavender breeze and birds singing.
It is that old/new combination that struck me as the best thing about the place, it feels like your perfect traditional country house, with all the benefits of a very well run hotel.
Hanna and Maria will look after your every need. From restaurant recommendations and bookings to picking up bikes for us to ride the vineyards and even taking care of some laundry for us.
The breakfast is to die for, second to none!
We felt truly welcomed.
Hanna, thank you very much for making our stay memorable!
We hope we can come back soon.
