Castel Monastero sits on over 9 acres of exquisite land in The Ombrone Valley in Tuscany. The area is well known for its beauty and breathtaking countryside as well as its art, food and Chianti vines. It is an area that truly knows how to live life to the full! Only a short distance to Siena, with its famous square and The Palio horse race, do not miss taking a trip to this wonderful City. With so much culture in the area you will be able to combine your wellness escape with the riches of Italy. There so much Italian tradition in the area to indulge in you will experience the real Italy – chic, sophisticated and hospitable.
Castel Monastero is an ideal setting. Surrounded by the wonderful landscape of vineyards and chestnut groves and only a short distance from traditional villages and towns. Inside the walled hamlet, which has also been a castle and a monastery, you will now find the 5 star luxury hotel. It offers amazing accommodation and a wonderful spa with exceptional facilities and programmes.
You will not only benefit from the extraordinary programmes devised by Dr Ali and his team but, if you prefer, you can choose to settle for just a few treatments instead. Just as importantly, you will also be able to take in the magnificent environment and surroundings - chilling out, get fit, knowing you are truly experiencing the best of the best.
All this and a real treat for the palate too. With 2 Restaurants that believe in the motto “Culture, emotion, memory: these are all found in fine Tuscan cuisine and its wines” you will benefit from the Italian passion for food, with every mouthful – a true experience not just a meal.
Feel Good Factor
With a unique and special atmosphere you will feel as if you have gone back in time, sitting in an 11th century village yet discretely surrounded with all the modern facilities you require. The authentic Italian way of life is all around you - unspoilt and full of natural beauty. If you are fortunate enough, and weather permits, you will find yourself sitting in the courtyard feeling like a part of history in the magical square.
Who's it for?
This is an ideal place for anyone who is health conscious, loves good food, culture, passion and romance! Whether you are looking at travelling alone, for one of Mr. Ali’s Programmes, a couple looking for a wonderful experience or a family, Castel Monastero will not in any way disappoint.
Do participate in the activities and excursions and cookery classes which are on offer. They have a Butler service - for a real luxury stay. But, for me, exploring the landscape on horseback is a must.
