Castel Monastero

Superbly situated amongst the Chianti vines within one of the most beautiful stretches of Tuscan countryside, the majestic Ombrone valley, this delightful hotel is a former 11th-century medieval village now lovingly restored and refurbished as a stunning countryside retreat.

Castel Monastero boasts a superb wine cellar, where guests can sample the very best of the wines produced in the surrounding vineyards. A variety of sophisticated gastronomic experiences and cooking courses can also be enjoyed, with Tuscan cuisine interpreted by Chef Fabrizio Peruzzi in combination with Gordon Ramsay.

Elsewhere, the superb 1000 square metre spa offers exclusive product lines and a wide range of revitalising treatments, while the gym and three swimming pools are great for working out or relaxing. Other activities in the vicinity include guided tours of Tuscany and Chianti, polo at the nearby Villa Sesta Polo Club, golf at the magnificent 18-hole Golf Club Ugolino, and black and white truffle hunting in autumn.

A holiday at Castel Monastero really is indulgent, beautiful and relaxing!
