Tuscan elegance in the beautiful Ombrone Valley
Self-drive | Short break
The Castel Monastero sits in a beautiful stretch of Tuscany; the Ombrone Valley, just 23km from Siena, an hour from Florence and an hour and a half drive from Pisa airport. Surrounded by four hectares of vineyards, chestnut forests and cypress trees, the property and its surrounds were originally a medieval village with records dating back to 1050.
Sympathetically renovated this property now has 74 rooms and suites are all decorated in a rustic, yet elegant style. Some are located in the main building, whilst others occupy the charmingly renovated houses of the old village.
Also on offer is a superb gourmet restaurant and three bars, including an exclusive wine bar, located in the 13th century cellar. Here guests can sample the finest wines, including vintage Chianti produced and aged in the Resort’s own winery. For those interested in local cuisine, the Resort also offers a cookery school.
As well as three swimming pools (one indoor) there is also an excellent Wellness Centre & Spa which provides a variety of treatments, including weight loss, detox, aesthetic cures and relaxation techniques.
