Hospederia Convento de la Parra
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in La Parra
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

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.

Room Tip: If you rely on a good wi-fi signal, ask for an inner room, overlooking the courtyard where the route...

Convento de la Parra is one of the best places I've ever stayed. It's beautiful and relaxing and the staff could not be more lovely. We were there five nights and six relaxing days. The bed is so comfortable and the grounds--the courtyard and the outdoor beds and the pool--are gorgeous. We read and drank wine and lounged around for hours. The pool was also wonderful. The staff are relaxed and do their best to make your time enjoyable. We decided we would love to go back every year if we can!

This is a kind of gem you cannot afford to lose while in Spain. Is located in Extremadura, Badajoz province, a 100 km of the spain portuguese border. It is housed in an ancient monastery. All the rooms are very simple but at the same time very comfortable. All in pure white with windows opening to the little patio where a fountain gives you the sound and freshness of water falling while around you the hit of summer makes you wish a shade cloister or a swimming pool, both to be found in this charming hospederia. At night you can have dinner in the patio. Looking up the immense sky full of stars and if you are lucky the moonlight will give the night a magic touch.

If you are travelling with children,ask for the suite facing the pool (just a little and tiny but most beautiful window). Everything is done with an original touch. Great decor. Don't expect great tv screens, mobiles everywhere, wi-fi and some other moderns commodities. No you are there for the peace the place shades over you, and for the beauty of the landscape and for the silence.

A true and unique experience waits you at La Parra. Don't miss it.

Close by visit Feria at sunset. From the castle half of Spain lies before your eyes.

Room Tip: Not a room. Don't miss the stork nest on the clock tower.

This beautifully converted convent is worth going out of your way for. The rooms are converted cells so have real character. They are small, low, with small windows to keep the room cool - simply done, but with all that you need. (No TV or aircon). The bathroom is fairly basic, but like everywhere else on this property, very clean. The first floor verandah around the courtyard has day beds placed at strategic intervals, adding to the overall sense of rest and relaxation.

The pool area is all white, so very pleasing to the eye, with an attractive water feature. Rather than loungers, there are mattresses, which may not sound very appealing, but actually works very well.

Service is discreet, but friendly. Food is not fussy, but is certainly tasty. We really enjoyed eating in the courtyard, but the contemporary dining room is also very appealing.

Our only regret was booking only one night. We won't make that mistake next time!

We have just spent five idyllic and restful days at the Convent. It was just the sort of place we love- beautifully restored and refurbished, but not glamorous, and still kept simple, retaining the ambience of a convent. The fresh cut flowers, and the setting and the small pool were gorgeous.Staff were friendly, but discreet, and let us be peaceful. There were so many curious and delightful corners to explore in the hotel. Breakfast was splendid; the evening meal tasty and sufficient. We highly recommend to those wanting something really relaxing.

After 10 days of travelling with kids, having drinks and sightseeings 24/7, I couldn't stand another church, castle or crying baby. It was not easy to find a comfortable place that offers just peace & quiet, but there it was: Convento de la Parra!

Wonderful zen atmosphere, friendly staff, good cooking & wines (though a bit pricy), cosy corners both inside and outside of the building and a small, simple pool area. Have a walk in the village and you'll meet people riding their kids on a donkey and friendly greeting you. The area is supposed to be a great hiker's paradise.

For cultural sightseeing or the occasional dinner or lunch outside the convento, I would recommend a stay with a car, so daytrips can be taken to villages on driving distance, as La Parra itself only has 1 bar/restaurant of lower quality.
