|Notre séjour en période de Noël a été très agréable pour plusieurs raison : chambre spacieuse, très bien entretenue par le personnel d'étage (discrétion, politesse et efficacité,), le restaurant tant pour le petit déjeuner que pour le dîner est un lieu magique, les repas servis avec discrétion, sympathie et considération étaient de grande qualité gastronomique. Le jour de Noël c'était du haut niveau : tout était parfait... Seule note négative, nous étions peu de clients à avoir choisi de profiter de ce lieu superbe et envôutant que cet ancien monastère ... et assister à cette merveilleuse messe de Noël chantée par la chorale de Santo Domingo de la Calzada. Séjour inoubliable .... que nous vous recommandons très sincèrement. Merci au personnel.|
