Castel Monastero Tuscany - Italy

Castel Monastero Tuscany - Italy

DESCRIPTION:

Back in the 11th century it was a monastery surrounded by the peace and quiet of the hills near Siena. It then became a castle and the country residence of the noble Chigi family, and later a romantic hamlet in the Tuscan countryside. 

To see it for yourself all you have to do is pass through the walls that protect the ancient hamlet and stand in the square lined with splendid buildings. Then step into any of the rooms or suites, or the wonderful detached villa, and revel in the charm, colours and style of real Tuscany.

You are in the heart of Chiantishire. Look out of the window. Stretching out before your eyes are vineyards, woods and fields straight from a Medieval fresco, and a splendid square, with its café, restaurant and even a little church. You’ll soon realise you’re not just in a spectacular room, you're in the heart of the most beautiful part of Italy.

Culture, emotion, memory: these are all found in fine Tuscan cuisine and its wines.

They are also found in Castel Monastero and its gourmet restaurants, “Contrada” and “La Cantina”. In charge of the menu is Gordon Ramsay, a leading personality in European cuisine, with a personal collection of 10 Michelin stars and an absolute passion for Tuscany. Working alongside him the executive chef of Castel Monastero Stylianos Sakalis.

Completing the pleasure of a day at Castel Monastero is the tearoom at our spa with its infusions of aromatic herbs grown on our estate, and a wine bar in which the best aperitifs and the most famous labels of Tuscan wines may be sampled.

You are in the land of the Renaissance where proportion and balance are everything. Could there be a more beautiful and harmonious place to get back in shape, detox your body and rejuvenate yourself?

The splendid spa at the luxury hotel Castel Monastero in Tuscany is the perfect place. In our two traditional old elegant Tuscan villas, just a stone's throw from the hamlet, you can try out the extraordinary Slimming, Detox and Anti Age treatments.

Complementing these treatments and enhancing their effect is the amazing "Aquae Monasterii" course with its high saline density sea oil pool, designed exclusively for our spa by the medical team of Thalasso del Forte, the spa at Forte Village, a World's Leading Resort since 1998.

But that's not all. In the healthy, peaceful setting of hills of the Chianti region, the extremely discreet Castel Monastero spa has been chosen by internationally recognised medical centres providing plastic and aesthetic surgery, for post-op convalescence after reshaping and rejuvenating operations, for both men and women.

If you’re looking for inner harmony, just close your eyes and inhale the warmth of the nature all around you.

In the woods, the countryside and the wonderful garden around Castel Monastero and its spa, you can try some intensely energising yoga sessions, led by internationally renowned qualified instructors.

This is the time you never have when you're at home, about town or at work, busy with the many things you have to do every day. Free time - a time when you are free from stress - is the most wonderful gift that Castel Monastero, the luxury hotel and spa in Tuscany, can give you.

How about starting with a soothing massage in our spa and a swim in our spectacular black basalt pool? Or a tennis match? Or the unique experience of truffle hunting in the woods and countryside around our resort, followed by a truffle dinner in our restaurants, washed down with some extraordinary Tuscan wine?

You can take to the skies too in a fantastic balloon, flying over the spectacular Chianti hills and its splendid historical towns. And when your feet touch the ground again you can play a round of golf at the superb 18-hole Ugolino Golf Club, just an hour's drive from our hotel.

Or perhaps you prefer polo? In just a few minutes from your room you can be at the beautiful Villa Sesta Polo Club.

And you've come to the right place if your passion is Italian haute cuisine. Back at Castel Monastero you can take part in a master class with the multi-Michelin-starred Gordon Ramsey, or taste some Super Tuscans with our sommeliers.

Anything else? Would you believe it if we told you we even have a telescope ready for you so you can explore the heavens? This time it's the sky's turn to reflect the beauty of the Earth.
