Convent accommodation in Naples and Assisi - two budget options

There has been some discussion of convents in various cities in Italy. I'm not sure if these two have been discussed, but they look intriguing. I have no immediate plans to try them out, but I'm keeping them in mind for a possible future trip.

I inquired about the costs and heard back.

The web site is http://www.brigidine.org .
Note that this order has convent accommodation all over the world. Among others they also have a convent in Rome, which has been mentioned here. The location in Piazza Farnese is perfect, but a single room is 96 Euros - taking it out of the budget category in my opinion.

Here are locations and prices:
Assisi
Suore di Santa Brigida di Svezia
Via Moiano 1
06081 ASSISI
ITALY
Tel: +39 075 812693
Fax: +39 075 813216
E-mail: [email protected]
The email I got says that a single room with half-board is 48 Euros per day.

Naples:
"Suore di Santa Brigida"
Eremo SS. Salvatore
Via dell'Eremo 87
80131 Camaldoli NAPOLI
ITALY
Tel +39-081-5872519 / 5875807
Fax +39-081-5876819
E-mail:[email protected]

The email information I got is a little confusing, but it seems quite cheap in any event:
"The cost for the accomodation in the single
room is ? 40.00 per day for bed and break fast.We serve also lunch and dinner for the cost of ? 10.00 for each. The cost for the single room is ? 35.00 for bed and breakfast."

=========
If anyone could comment on the convenience of these locations, I would appreciate it. The Naples convent got very good marks in a recent review on the Rick Steves board, which is what led to this research.
