AL VECCHIO CONVENTO
Al Vecchio Convento is an ‘Albergo Diffuso’, which best can be translated to “Spread out Hotel”, situated in the historical centre of a medieval village, Portico di Romagna, in the Apennine hills between Florence and Ravenna in Tuscan Romagna.
Staying in a ‘spread out’ hotel means living the town from within, having as neighbours the local inhabitants and not just hotel-rooms with tourists. Living with the village also means leaving behind stress and letting yourself being absorbed by the more relaxed rhythm of local life.
The rooms are located in the centre of Portico di Romagna: 9 rooms in the main building, where you also find the restaurant, and 6 in the annex 50 metres from the main building.
The rooms are furnished with the original 18th Century furniture, all with bathroom and the following modern facilities: wi-fi, lcd tv and telephone, electric kettle for tea and coffee.
Activities during day can consist of cooking lessons, trekking, truffle hunting, wine & olive oil tasting, an excursion to ‘Ravenna’ or just sit back and relax and read a book in the peaceful surroundings. For those who wish to learn the Italian language, morning lessons can be arranged via the local language school from beginners to advanced.
