After a long drive, emerging from within the lush green mountains was this majestic place full of history and centuries of extensions to its monastery.
The sensation that this place offers in virtually every rooms is, without doubt, the reason it was conceived, a sense of peace that unites you to something bigger.
An overwhelming, medieval hotel that has managed to maintain its original charm whilst being modernized with the utmost respect given to its historic features. It is very interesting how the rooms have been converted for their current use by the hotel.
The service was great, highlights being the restaurant staff and the dishes that are just like the hotel itself: a mix of history and modernity. The rear of the hotel has a path in the heart of the forest; a forest that one notes is wild and authentic... full of life, decorative lights and sounds, like a fantasy world.
Without doubt, a highly recommended place to be at peace and rest that will not leave people who seek union with nature indifferent.
I subscribed to the Lala experience. We booked it the day before for the night in early September, and it cost us 60 double room with three beds. It was very comfortable and clean. It had a great pool with sun beds and a lawn. The water was perfect! The breakfast cost us 9 euros, but it was one of the best in my life. Very nice staff. It's a little out of town, but well marked.
Hotel Francisco II is convenientally located in an area which, although not very lively, is within walking distance of the city centre and various bars. The staff are very friendly and, although the decor is quite conservative, it is very comfortable.
Amazing place restored with a very good sense. This Casona is located in a charming village with Penosiños' Church at 2 minutes walk, a traditional natural fountain in front of the entry.
There are many routes around to get lost surrounded by woods and small rivers (or "regatos" as they call). You will love this place.
