La Cantina was overpriced, impersonal and poor value. I would say average, at best. We were in fact, a little irritated when we went for dinner subsequently (in other local restaurants) because this became even more apparent. The spa, on the other hand was a pleasant, welcoming experience. The staff made us feel comfortable and the therapists were above average....

This was our first visit to Castel Monastero and was a working trip as well as a bit of leisure. The first impressions were very encouraging, from the welcome by the concierge to the efficiency of the reception staff. The room was well appointed, though would have benefited from a writing desk. Being a ground floor room, it was necessary...

My husband and I stayed at Castello Monastero for the last few days of our month long stay in Italy. It was the perfect end to a perfect vacation, offering magnificent views, tranquility, luxury and friendliness. The rooms are spacious and beautifully, tastefully decorated. The grounds are impeccably kept and beautiful, especially the pool area. My one issue would have...

We booked a restaurant at this property for my daughters birthday lunch, which was incredible. The venue of Castel Monastero is located in central Tuscany, approx 30 klms west of Siena. It is an absolutely beautiful 5 star accommodation property with 2 onsite restaurants, the Multi Michelin starred Gordon Ramsays' Contrada and La Cantina, as well as a luxurious spa...

A very nice resort that overall we really enjoyed staying at, with a few minor issues. Pros: Room was fantastic; we were in the lowest level room in terms of size and view and both were excellent - huge room, nestled across the street from the main buildings and in the vineyard. Great location for sightseeing Siena and Chianti area;...

We had stayed in the area previously at other similar type properties and weren't sure whether we would like the fact that the buildings were spread out and appeared quite rustic. However, the room we were given was a spacious junior suite in a small building which only had a couple of other rooms and had a fantastic view over...

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
