Cueva del Fraile

Cueva del Fraile ***

Carretera Buenache, Km 7, 16001 Cuenca

This atmospheric former convent dates back to the 16th century and lies just 5 minutes from Cuenca’s historic centre.

The Cueva del Fraile still features its original central courtyard, cloisters, wood beams and bare stone walls. You can also enjoy the extensive original gardens found beside the building. To these charming details it has added modern comforts such as an outdoor swimming pool, tennis and paddle court, and mini-golf. The rooms all come with modern comforts blended with a traditional, rustic style.

The hotel is surrounded by a huge natural estate, yet is located just a short distance from the ancient city centre. Here you can enjoy a visit to the emblematic Casas Colgantes, which cling to the river gorge which runs through this city of La Mancha.

Rooms: 76
