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 72 rooms and suites and one villa.
Back in the 11th century it was a monastery surrounded by the peace and quiet of the hills near Siena. It then became a castle and the country residence of the noble Chigi family, and later a romantic hamlet in the Tuscan countryside.
The glorious past of Castel Monastero, today a luxury resort just a few kilometres from Siena, can be seen all around.
