After a short tour of the property, and very old building adjacent to a medieval site, we were offered a room overlooking the ancient church's altar. Very confortable and quiet, surrounded by nature (an olive tree estimated more than 1'500 years old!), outdoor swimming pool available.
Breakfast included, nice extensive buffet.
Very nice and tranquil location, a special atmosphere to feel comfortable. Super friendly staff - top service. During the cold time of the year the rooms may be a little cold, even so there is aircon in each room.
Sadly the owner is not looking very much into maintenance and some necessary investments.
This B&B has so much potential, but is not using it.
We stayed one night in late Feb. We were the only guests and the staff person treated us well. As an old building it is interesting to stay there. It was cold and damp during our stay. While the guest room was warm with the heater the common rooms were cold even with a fire.

We stayed in the 'conventa da provenca for 7 nights.
Our suite "almeira"(entrance room, bathroom and bedroom) was spartan but had all the luxery we needed. Rooms were clean and matrasses very ok!
The convent is a museum all over, in every corner there is a point of interest. Looking out of the windows you enjoy the beauty of the garden and nearby hills. We were not bored one minute. The staff is sooo efficient and friendly! Its been long time we met young people so motivated doing their jobs and lots more than that..
Breakfast was perfect and complete.
The place is quiet and peacefull. What does a monk needs more? I know... a good drink with the wife at the fire place in the evening;
