Monasteries and convents for accomodations/Montese area

Postby mwilken » 20 Feb 2010, 15:28

Are there any Monasteries, convents and or farmhouses that could accomodate 10-12 visitors in the Montese area? I know there is a book available to buy but thought someone might have first hand experience with the accommodations in that area. Thank you.

Hi, :lol:

I once stayed in a monastery in the Verona area. It was very, very inexpensive, BUT, the accomodations were spartan, meals were at a set time, and the place was lock tight at 10 pm. In addition, the location was remote and inconvenient.

If you have a large group and want to contain expenses, I would suggest you look into an Agroturismo. These are private homes, farms, etc which are sanctioned by the Italian government to give tourists a real flavor of the food and culture of the area. Some are quite rustic, but some, have all the amenities. One we visited had a swimming pool, jogging paths, lovely olive groves and incredible food. I never stayed in one in the Montese area, but here is a site to visit.
