Castel Monastero
Monastero d?Ombrone, 19
Colonna del Grillo
One of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in Italy lies among Chianti vines, corn fields, chestnut forests and long rows of cypress trees: this is the Tuscany of the Ombrone Valley - a land blessed with masterpieces of painting and food and the greatest, unparalleled art of knowing how to live life. Castel Monastero, a fantastic Country House Resort, stands in this unique corner of the world, just 23 km from Siena. A small but intact medieval village called Monastero dell...Ombrone survives from the 11th century and is recorded in the archives of the era.

Hotel Overview

Castel Monastero: Today, within these thousand-year-old walls, 76 guestrooms and suites and a villa of pure elegance radiates. You can sense the glorious past of this village in the air, among the 4 hectares of unspoilt greenery and at a hair's breadth away in the luxury of the most exquisite Italian hospitality. In keeping with the fascination of the hotel, there is a gourmet restaurant, a cellar where guests can sample the best Tuscan wines and a SPA where guests can relax and feel at peace.

Since the eleventh century, Castel Monastero has shone forth amongst the most beautiful hills of the Chianti region.

Today, this small medieval village is dedicated to the art of Italian hospitality. Located in a strategic position, just 23 km from Siena and 90 km from Florence, the perfectly preserved hotel offers the pleasure of discovering and experiencing an authentic taste of Tuscany.

The buildings of this historic noble residence, divided into "contrade", house 75 rooms and suites of various sizes, as well as an independent villa.

Each ambience, inspired by an elegant and rustic Tuscan style, is enhanced by a magnificent view of the village square (piazza di Castel Monastero) and of the surrounding fields and vineyards. Peace and relaxation are omnipresent.

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, "La 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 is Fabrizio Peruzzi, a rising star in Italian cuisine.

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

True well-being has distant origins. It's the memory of beauty. It's the SPA of Castel Monastero, where you can find harmony and balance again. Nothing could be easier when the eyes and the heart are lit up with the same peace. There are two beautiful old buildings, emblematic of rural Tuscan architecture. Within their fine walls and enormous windows that open onto the beauty of all of Castelmonastero, a spa has been opened that is unique in all of Italy. A thousand square metres where you can discover innovative and effective treatments to recover your ideal body weight as well as detoxify and re-balance, created for you by experts of Urban Retreats, Europe's largest and most renown wellness salon which boasts among its centres the prestigious spa at Harrods.
