castel monastero

3 nights from £970 castel monastero tuscany

Castel Monastero is a gorgeous hotel that's housed entirely within a wonderfully restored 11th century medieval hilltop village. With a fantastic spa, restaurant menus overseen by Gordon Ramsay, and surrounded by quintessential Tuscan countryside with easy access to many historic towns and villages, this is a perfect base for a stay in Tuscany.

Castel Monastero was once a monastery (and dates back over 1,000 years) and is now a luxurious 74 bedroom country retreat, offering first class service and hospitality, with the added benefit of a fabuilous spa.

Rooms are located around a lovely Piazza which comes alive at night with al fresco dining. The rooms are all different and the style is perfectly in keeping with the rustic elegance of this historic residence, while adding touches of contemporary design.  There's also a charming 3 bedroom villa available for families or groups of friends.

The 1,000 sqm spa has a Finnish Sauna, experiential showers, Hammam, and two indoor pools - one of which features water with a high saline concentration to promote relaxation and wellbeing. The spa offers an extensive range of treaments by the famous Dr Ali (clients include Prince Charles) and Urban Retreats.  Under the expert guidance of Dr Ali, guests can also partake in 3 or 7 day detox, weight loss or revitalization programmes in this pretty corner of Tuscany

There's also an excellent fitness room with both indoor and outdoor facilities.  Plus, you can enjoy yoga classes or play tennis.  And, if you feel like heading out to explore the countryside on bikes, this can be organised too.  Routes will be tailored to suit your fitness level and how long you want to be out exploring.

There are two restaurants.  ‘La Contrada’ is the gourmet restaurant where you can experience a sophisticated gastronomic experience tasting Tuscan cuisine interpreted by Chef Nello Cassese together with Gordon Ramsay. 'La Cantina' is located in a stunning vaulted wine cellar where you will enjoy more informal Tuscan cuisine.

If you want to get out and about and explore local history and culture, every day can offer a different and exciting itinerary.  Nearby places to visit include Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Pienza, Sovana, Pitigliano and Volterra.
