Drive five minutes past the Centro of Belmonte, and sitting on the top of a mountain sits the luxurious hotel that was once a convent.

Lovely, spacious retreat at the end of a tiny village, adjacent to sera estela. Extremely quiet, restful. - at least at this time of year. We were treated well at dinner which was delicious- wild mushrooms, prawn, and a yummy local tinto.

Our room Octavio had a dreadful strong mouldy smell that did not dissipate despite leaving window open and air conditioner running for 2 days. I have no idea why we would have been given such a dreadful room when the hotel did not appear to be fully booked. We received a discount when booking through booking.com and can only assume...
