Belmonte is a small village set high above a valley. The convent that the hotel is set in dates back to the 13th century. While the hotel manages to retain the atmosphere of the original historic building, the rooms are comfortable and modern. The food is world class. I had the degustation menu, which was one of the best I've ever had. The different courses were all extremely tasty and quite diverse. I would highly recommend it to any food lover. The staff are also friendly, courteous, and helpful.
