It is a warm & stylish house within the south-east wing of a medieval palace. Once upon a time it was part of the palace monastery. It consists of the 2 upper floors of a one-time, 5-storey-high chapterhouse. Entering at ground level, guests may go straight into the large bedroom (cool-in-summer & warm-in-winter) with its en-suite WC & shower-room (where once there was a sacral antechamber). The bathroom has a very large walk-in, open shower, and a designer suite of WC, bidet and slate stone-mounted sink. From the entrance, ascending the stairs brings guests into a bright and comfortable, loft-style open living area that features a brand new kitchen, fitted-out completely in granite work surfaces. The adjacent living and dual-dining areas enjoy natural light and incredible views. Plenty of seating options afford comfort, whether watching satellite TV (all the British terrestrial channels BBC1-4, ITV1-4, Channel 4 and 900 others) or whether sitting at the huge French window-doors, or enjoying the views from a 600-year-old, beautifully restored stone terrace, where dinner can be served & enjoyed al fresco, in all weathers, in medieval ambience. Indoor dining is also possible - there is a table for 2. The panoramic views of the valley and mountains to the south help make this attractive property not just a home of character but one that offers far more than many other holiday lets do. Sound-proofed and heat/cold-proofed, it affords a great level of comfort. Prices from only around 375 a week!

It sleeps up to 8. If your budget goes as far as a very reasonable 1150 per week, do consider it - it's huge! It has been recently renovated and refurbished. Its labyrinths & gardens will enchant & intrigue you. Once upon a time it was a convent, hence its name. Today, this 3-storey, enormous holiday home, with its myriad rooms & passageways, will make for a memorable vacation. Entering at street level, guests may go straight up to the tower, across to the wing, straight on the glorious living rooms, or down to the terraces, and out to the gardens. Privacy and panoramic views - amidst stupendous space! We can take a booking directly for you. It costs 1,150 Euros per week. For nightly rates please ask.
The photos below are from Casa Convento, a grande home, newly opened in 2012 by an Anglo-Italian lover of the finer things in life
NOTE : vacation rentals will NOT be affected at all by any sales, as all 2014 viewings will be before or after the season
when guests are not staying; and all/any sales will be completed after holiday seasons are over.
Sales typically take months to a year to organise. Holidays will not be affected.
Why not buy your own holiday home, within a medieval palace?
It's a safer investment than bank deposits or paper stocks.
