We had a lovely stay here with our baby. The hosts are friendly, the location is beautiful, and the hotel has all of the amenities you could need. From here, it is a very short drive to the observatory to look at the night sky (the hotel is located in the dark sky protected zone). We highly recommend this place

They are passionate people, and the place is very nice, paceful environment, good food and the location is between the town and the lake. If you travel with kids they will be happy to see all the animales they have! Perfect choice also if you travel with a pet.

Lovely villa located 5 minutes' drive outside of town. We were warmly greeted and shown to a clean, spacious room with views over the surrounding countryside. We relaxed by the small pool (on what had been a very hot day) before taking the owner's recommendation for dinner. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and a good sleep was had... More

2 nights here and we wanted to stay longer. It's the perfect break away, surrounded by nature, it is such a peaceful. Place to retreat to. The owners are fantastic, breakfast is fab. It's so close to Monsoraz. I want to go back!

We spent a wonderful week end at Monte Santa Catarina. The place is cosy and charming, and the warm owners, Susanna and Vasco, paid attention to every detail to make yourself comfortable. They also gave us great tips to discover the area and some good places to eat. Moreover, if you are an animal lover, you will love that place:... More
