A true Tuscan retreat
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
One of the most beautiful stretches of countryside in Italy, in Tuscany region, lies among Chianti Wines, corn fields, chestnut forests and long rows of Cypress trees this is the setting around Castel Monastero, a beautifully restored medieval village and monastery, just 23 km from Siena.
Within these thousand years walls is a true Tuscan retreat which exudes a feeling of simple refinement and pure elegance with its contemporary rustic chic style of the 74 rooms and suites and one villa.
In keeping with the Tuscan food and wine culture there are two restaurants: the gourmet restaurant “Contrada” where guests can have a sophisticated gastronomic experience tasting Tuscan cuisine interpreted by our Executive Chef.
“La Cantina”, in the XIII century cellar, holds the best Tuscan and Chianti wines and guests can taste the local delicacies. An iconic 1000 ms SPA with Jacuzzi, Hammam, two saunas and sensorial showers and kneipp therapy to enhance your healing experience.
The glory of the past and the exclusivity of refined and versatile surroundings these are the features that make Castel Monastero the ideal place for high profile weddings and seminars. A meeting room, able to hold 150 guests, is available in the medieval village.
