Expert Review

Rumored to be the “House of the Rising Sun” from the famous ’60s song by The Animals, the Villa Convento has a colorful past that stretches as far back as 1833 and includes such tenants as Jimmy Buffett. Its current owners, the Campo family, shower their guests with attention and prepare them for every day with complimentary coffee, tea, and croissants. Victorian influence is present in each of the 25 rooms – though, thankfully, without all of the frilly embellishments (expect exposed brick walls, half-canopied beds, and tall windows and doors). Amenities are basic but sufficient: full bath, air conditioning, cable TV, and telephone. The spacious loft rooms are ideal for families as they come with a king-size bed on the first floor and twin beds in the loft.
