We spent 4 days in this great place, very relaxing, it was so nice to wonder around the whole area. Extremely well trained and nice staff which for Italy is very rare, congrats about that. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food is ok, breakfast is a bit too poor for 5* and for the price you pay.... More

My boyfriend and I had an absolutely amazing stay here during our time in Tuscany. The location was perfect - not too far outside of Florence to get to, and not too far from some of the best vineyards in the region. But it was far enough off the beaten path to give you that private, secluded countryside stay feel.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
While painters are born, travellers are made and no land has aroused the curiosity, the enthusiasm and the culture of entire generations more than Tuscany. Certainly, not all of them have had the luck to begin their journey in the enchantment of Castel Monastero. In fact a few kilometres from our village, along roads of pure delight, can be found masterpieces of art and of the highest culinary tradition.Every day, a discovery. Every day a different itinerary passing through unspoiled scenery. Every day, on your return, a massage and a candle-lit dinner. And together, over a romantic meal for two or with your friends, you will recall the frescoes of Piero della Francesca and the perfect walls of Monteriggioni, the Renaissance utopia of Pienza and the gastronomic glory of Castellina in Chianti. And again, to surprise you, there’ll be a sunset over Pitigliano and a stroll around the Etruscan necropolises of Sovana. ... more   less
