Let your dreams come true and organise a stay in this old convent of  the 12th century, covered in age old frescos about the life of St.  Francis. 

Close to Amelia, Narni, Orvieto, Viterbo and only one hour from the centre of Rome, this is the place to go if you would like a different holiday, immersed in the past centuries and yet comfortably close to the nice hilltop village of Lugnano. 

The Convent has a 25 by 12.5 metres swimming pool with lifeguard, surrounded by a park of 2 hectares of olive and oak trees. The pool is full time open in July and August, the last two weekends of June and the first two weekends of September. The tennis court, the table tennis and bocce area are always open for use. 

The whole Convent has been restored into a residence with apartments. There is one common room with internet access for all inhabitants of the convent.

Several of the apartments are also rented to tourists and on our website is one of these, a ground floor apartment for 2 guests: Botte.

Botte has one bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom en suite, with shower. In the living room is a small kitchen corner with an under the counter fridge, no oven and two electrical plates to cook on. The kitchen corner of the apartment is suitable to prepare normal meals, but not for extensive cooking.

The apartment Botte has a lovely private walled garden with a very cute outside kitchen made in the antique bread oven. 

The church belonging to the Convent is still being used.

There is a spacious parking inside the walled area.

Il Convento is charmant en apart tegelijk. Je moet er niet proberen te koken want met één vuur is dat echt niet gemakkelijk. Ook al staan er potten en pannen voldoende. Het is er rustig en mooi en vooral de tennis en het zwembad zijn een aanrader. 's Avonds is het zwembad spijtig genoeg niet toegankelijk. Er heerst een heel fijne sfeer, wij verbleven 3 nachten en voor ons was dat voldoende omdat het echt een kleine kamer is. Bieke en Michel, apartement Pozzo België Het was een fijne vakantie. Mooie locaties. We hebben genoten. Arie Beste, Het verblijf was echt suuuuuuper goed !! Echt niets op aan te merken. Het klooster is een paradijs en zeker het app. La botte met het klein terras is een paradijs op aarde (de definitie van La Dolce Vita is hier te vinden). De eigenaar was ook zeeeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam bij vragen. Zeer rustig na het bezoeken van al de drukke stadjes. Het zwembad was ook zeer proper en zeer groot ideaal om in de dag wat aan te zonnen en te rusten. Alleen een echt ligbed was mss wel aangenaam geweest maar dit is echt niet nodig. Ik kan nog blijven doorgaan maar om het kort te houden heeft Il convento alles voor een topvakantie (wat wij ook hebben beleefd daar). Ook prijs kwaliteit is zeer goed in orde. Met zonnige groeten uit Belgie Alistaire & Stefanie

Deutsche Übersetzung des Feedbacks aus der vorherigen Villa in Umbria Website

Il Convento ist gleichzeitig charmant und apart. Ich habe erst gar nicht probiert da zu kochen, denn mit dem Feuer ist das nicht so einfach, obwohl es genug Töpfe und Pfannen gibt. Es ist da ruhig und schön und vor allem Tennis und Schwimmbad sind prima. Leider ist der Pool am Abend gesperrt. Es herrscht hier eine angenehme Atmosphäre, wir blieben drei Nächte in dem doch recht kleinen Zimmer. Bieke und Michel, Apartment Pozzo, Belgien Es war ein schöner Urlaub. Schöne Orte. Wir haben es genossen. Arie Hallo, unser Aufenthalt war echt suuuper! Nichts zu bemängeln. Das Kloster ist ein kleines Paradies auf Erden, besonders das Apartment La Botte mit der kleinen Terrasse (echt La Dolce Vita). Der Besitzer war seeehr freundlich und hilfsbereit bei Fragen. Sehr ruhig nach den Besuchen in den geschäftigen Städten. Das Schwimmbad war sehr sauber und groß, ideal auch zum sonnen und ausruhen. Eine große Sonnenliege hätte mir wohl gefallen aber es ging auch so. Ich kann noch weitere Vorteile nennen, um es aber kurz zu halten: Il Convento hat alles was man für einen Top-Urlaub braucht. Auch das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist in Ordnung. Mit sonnigen grüßen aus Belgien Alistaire & Stefanie

Il Convento is charming and special. Cooking is a bit difficult because you have only one burner, which is a bit of a challenge. Pots and pans are plenty. It is a quiet accommodation, beautiful and especially the tennis court and swimming pool are recommended. At night the swimming pool is not open, unfortunately. The ambiance is cosy, but for us the 3 nights stay was enough because the room is really small. Bieke and Michel, apartment Pozzo, Belgium Hello, Our holiday was just suuuuuuuper fine! Really nothing negative to remark. The convent is a paradise and the apartment Botte, where we stayed with its small terrace is a small paradise on earth (the saying “La Dolce Vita” is definitely applicable here!). Also the owner was very helpful and friendly. The place is very quiet after coming back from visiting the busy towns in the area. The pool is very clean and very large, an ideal spot to relax and sit in the sun. One remark though: it only has deck chairs, no sunbeds. I can continue complimenting this place but to keep it short, I’d say Il Convento as all it takes for a top holiday experience. Also price/quality is good. With sunny regards from Belgium, Alistaire & Stefanie
