This property was booked on the recommendation of our Amex travel agent... it's one of their properties. The good: The place was once a Monastery and is magnificent! Beautiful grounds, two outdoor pools, courtyard, sitting areas and tucked away in the Tuscan hills. The Staff was lovely and always willing to do anything needed to make our stay more comfortable....

I should first say that we stayed out of season - the hotel opened for two weeks over Christmas and New Year and we stayed for two nights - so maybe it wasn't running as the well oiled machine it may well be in summer. But, overall, it was disappointing. The hotel was recently opened and is done in quite... More

The most magical place, an unforgettable experience! The service at the hotel and we are having a good time. Professional team that gets you smiling in the morning and harnessed to help with any questions. Thanks Francesca for breakfast courtesy always accompanied by a big smile and thank Simona for training prior to the trip in the area. Vered&Ido Fahima

A monastery converted to a hotel which exists amongst vineyards and provides a great place to relax and rest. Wonderful accommodations and very helpful staff. Excellent food choices also. Near to Siena which is a must see city.

We stayed at Castel Monastero with a group of friends and can't say enough great things about it. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. The spa and pool are wonderful, and although there is plenty to do and see in the area, I would recommend including a few days on your itinerary to just laze around... More

After spending 3 days in Rome and 3 days in Florence, it was a delight to spend our last 3 nights a Castel Monastero. We were traveling with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law and both of our rooms were spacious and comfortable. The maid service was definitely awesome and the room was always stocked with whatever we needed. The only "complaint"... More
