Imagine yourself in a medieval village turned 5-star resort and spa overlooking the hills of the Chianti region in Tuscany. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well the Castel Monastero has turned this dream into a reality with its meticulously preserved village which houses the hotel rooms and villas, spa, and Gordon Ramsey restaurants Contrada and La Cantina.
Once a historic noble residence, the village is now divided into private residences that can be rented for short-term or long-term stays. The villas of the property are also for sale, in case you’ve been looking for a new vacation home.
The elegance of Tuscany is displayed in each room and villa, but guests may have a hard time concentrating on what’s inside the rooms with the stunning views just past the windows. Vineyards, fields and hills stretch out as far as the eye can see, promoting a sense of serenity and calm.
In addition to the amazing architecture of the villas and rooms of this hotel, the spa is also not to be missed. Dr. Ali, famed personal doctor of Prince Charles and celebrities like Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Douglas, works personally with the spa staff at Castel Monastero. Treatment programs offered at the Castel Monastero hotel include detox, weight loss, massages, spa and revitalization treatments.
