Cozy room of 25 sqm inside the Monastery of the Benedictine Sisters of Agnano, not far from Ostuni.
The monastery is newly built and located in a beautiful countryside area, about 2 km from Ostuni. Thanks to its position and its aura of spirituality, it is a place where you can breathe peace and serenity, therefore ideal for a relaxing stay away from the daily hustle and bustle.
It is surrounded by a beautiful garden, enjoys a lovely view and borders the Agnano archaeological park. Surrounded by woods and olive trees, the monastery also has a large car park available for guests.
The monastery houses 5 separate rooms and an apartment with 2 bedrooms: each room has its own entrance, and the area where the rooms are located is separate from the main one, which is for the exclusive use of the sisters, who live in a separate wing of the monastery.
The room, furnished with a simple but functional furniture, has two single beds which can be joined to form a double bed, bedside tables with lamps, a desk with a chair and a large wardrobe. The room is also equipped with a private bathroom with shower.
In the basement you will find a super-equipped kitchen, a refectory and a conference room. These three rooms are, by agreement with the sisters, available to all guests of each room type.
Also available to all guests are all the outdoor spaces (gardens, benches and paths immersed in the countryside) and a library.
As guests of the Monastery you will also have the opportunity to:
- visit the Agnano Park, which borders the monastery;
- join meetings for groups or individuals, starting from Benedictine spirituality (for Catholics and lay people), about listening, prayer, work and communion;
- organize conferences;
- join mindfulness retreats;
- organize retreats for workers who want to break away from routine;
- enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner, all prepared by exceptional cooks: the nuns of the monastery!
