Monastery & Convent Accommodations in Italy

I found the website that lists Monasteries and Convents that you can book for stays in Italy. Has anyone every used this website before? Or has anyone ever stayed in these types of accommodations before? Most of the places look really neat and the prices are not bad either. I'm looking for rooms in Venice, Rome, Cinque Terre and the hilltowns in central Italy. Can anyone give me any advice on this?

Book as far in advance as you are able - these places are very popular.

I've never done this, but a group of friends have - loved it! Used the book "Bed and Blessings" as their guide.

We stayed in Suore St. Elizabetta in Rome last September and were very pleased with our accomodations. Clean, comfortable, quiet, good location and price. We booked directly with them, but I would have no problems with the website you listed. Also try The only downside for you may be that some have a curfew. Not a problem if you are an early to bed, early to rise type.

I have stayed at 2 convents, Orvieto and Cortona. They are terrific and low cost but not all are low cost. Skip meals as they are basically a weak beverage and dry bread for brfast. Language can be a prob for some if you do not speak Italian.

We stayed at PICCOLE SUORE DELLA SACRA FAMIGLIA, Casa Di Accoglienza Paolo VI and it was wonderful. Super clean, almost directly across the street from the Vatican museum, and a very nice balcony to sit and eat. Small fridge and kitchen area to eat or do very simple food prep. No english spoken, but we emailed in English, they responded in Italian, and when we arrived the super high energy nuns had no problem getting their point across to us even with the language barrier.
