Al Vecchio Convento: 'Albergo diffuso' and Restaurant in Romagna
Hotel Restaurant since 1975
The Hotel Restaurant "Al Vecchio Convento" is situated in Portico di Romagna, a medieval town at the foot of the Apennines between Tuscany and Romagna.
It is situated in a wonderful 19th century palace which belonged in the past to one of the most ancient local families.
Provided with all comforts, all the rooms preserve their original features, respecting environment and tradition. The curtains, the wrought iron objects, and the hand-painted ceramics made by local craftsmen contribute to give an ancient charm to these places.
The family-run business creates an elegant but at the same time informal atmosphere, leading the guests to discover the green of Foreste Casentinesi, the warm traditions of Romagna, and the welcoming spirit characterizing the locals.
All the 15 rooms are characterized by 19th century furnishing: walnut or cherry wood furnishing, wrought iron beds, embroidered curtains.
Buffet breakfast with home-made jams and cakes, cold cuts, cheese, fruit, and much more; in order to meet the needs of our guests, breakfast is not served at a fixed hour.
Breakfast is served in a cosy rustic restaurant, while in summer you can eat it also in the garden on the ground floor, where you can sunbathe or relax at the shadow of the trees.
The Restaurant and the Cellar
The spirit characterizing the atmosphere of "Vecchio Convento" can be also found in the cuisine, combining tradition, healthy food, respect of the territory and, above all, of the seasons.
The term "creative cuisine" best expresses the features of the Restaurant: we prepare characteristic seasonal dishes revisited with imaginative simplicity and cooked "espresso", that is there and then, in order to exalt the tastes at their best.>>>
Portico di Romagna is a small town in Romagna - Tuscany, a stone ait surrounded by nature, a castle still preserving great part of the aspect and spirit of ancient times. In winter, the silence and charm of the past make Portico resemble a setting of a Walpole's novel, but in summer the sun and smiling faces of the inhabitants spread throughout Portico a light of relax and hospitality.
