We had a wonderful stay at the Monastero. The view from the terrace is stunning and the rooms are simply furnished but lovely. It's really a peaceful and relaxing place. And try the dinner cooked by Cristina, the hostess.

This is a meticulously restored monastery that is member of the "Residenze d'Epoca" club of hotels. Ask the helpful owners for a tour of the church frescoes. The grounds are bright with foliage. WiFi works only in the Lobby Area. Since the town of Ocre consists of a series of smaller hamlets strung along the hillside, be sure to get...

Our two nights in the monastery was one of the best vacation experiences we have had in Europe! The grounds were beautifully maintained, the rooms were very comfortable, and the hospitality spectacular.

They place is excellent for events...

We selected this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed! The location is stunning and the building complex of the monastery is both interesting to explore and very accommodating. There are terraces everywhere you can sit, either in shade or in sunshine, library rooms indoors when the heat of the sun gets too much and...
