This is a delightful place to stay in beautiful Extremadura, not far from the exquisite town of Zafra.
La Parra is a tiny, sleepy village, not unattractive but with little to recommend it other than the lovely Hotel Convento. Thoughtfully restored and converted, the rooms are comfortable and characterful, a decent size (even the singles) with well-equipped bathrooms and good cupboard space.
The day beds around the first floor landings, great for relaxing, reading and watching the resident storks in their chimney-top nest, look down on the cloistered courtyard where a fountain plays and meals can be taken. Dinner was good and breakfast excellent.
The staff are wonderful - the perfect combination of friendly and efficient - and Manuel in particular was a great source of local knowledge and happily helped me plan my onward route to maximise my time in the region.
I left hoping I'll return.
