After the game, it's time to relax your body and mind in the Annexes to the pool changing rooms, with a Turkish bath. ideal retreat for weekends and holidays in close contact with the field.

    Peace and tranquility

    The monastery has a lot of character and was beautifully restored with lots of classical features. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the garden with pool is well kept with lots of sitting areas. It is a joy to be in, by day as well as by evening. Nuno and his wife are gracious hosts who made us feel at home immediately upon arrival. This is an ideal place to relax while there is enough to do in the surrounding area. We were sorry to have to leave.
