The Experience

Castel Monastero

Set in the Tuscan countryside and is surrounded by stunning landscapes of Chianti vineyards, chestnuts forests and long rows of cypress trees; Just 23 km from Siena and within easy reach of charming Tuscan villages. Once an XI century monastery and village, Castel Monastero has been beautifully restored to a refined Tuscan Retreat and SPA. All guestrooms and interiors have been elegantly designed to enhance the rustic charm of the ancient walls, adding elements of contemporary design, respecting its local culture and environment. The resort is set in unspoiled green surroundings, providing spectacular views of the vineyards, the Piazza and the gardens from every angle. The villa enjoys spectacular views of the medieval village.

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.
