Casa Convento

(our name for the house) is possibly the only large, noble house in Triora not to have been split into apartments or otherwise extensively altered. As such it offers tremendous potential either as a large family house or as a centre for courses, conferences, retreats, themed holidays or even an eco-lodge.

As well as the house and attached independent studio apartment, there are extensive terraces that could be developed in a number of ways, including a small solar farm and driveway to the house, as well as enough land to be self-sufficient in vegetables.

Over the years Casa Convento has built a world-wide reputation via the music courses we have organised through our company, Triora Musica.

In addition it has served as a centre for courses in photography and drama, as well as the perfect base for yoga retreats and walking holidays. It also proved popular as a holiday villa for large families and groups of friends.

While the front entrance is tucked into an ancient medieval street only a few minutes’ walk from the historic centre of beautiful Triora, the back entrance connects via a path over the terraces to the road beneath, providing direct access, and the potential for building a driveway right up to the house.

Set in some of the most magical and inspiring scenery, and with breath taking mountain views from every room, Casa Convento has stunned everyone who has visited.
