This is a converted convent with the rooms being the 'cells' as used by the monks. They are minimalist but lovely with an en suite with hairdryer and good shower. Our room overlooked the cloisters and in the evening you could here them singing in the church adjoining through the open door. Breakfast was nice with cakes and pastries (never had treacle tart for breakfast before!) and the evening meal was very good. Not far to walk down into the town where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. Not easy to find even with instructions, however there are signs to Piazza San Biagio and the resort is behind that. There are plans for a rooftop garden and pool which will make it even livelier. Would definitely stay again.
