Castel Monastero
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We've been in Castel Monastero in April for 4 days!! It was magical! The room was just marvelous! The restaurant was also very nice and the menu was made by Gordon Ramsey! The hotel is about 15 minutes from Sienna and the location is in the courtside with wine yards, spa, tennis court and the walks around the hotel so peaceful and beautiful!! I also recommend you a vintage tour of Tuscany with vintage cars!!! It was EXCELLENT and we had a great time! You' ll have a lifetime experience driving in beautiful Tuscany!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the separate villas!!

The hotel is comfortably situated 1 hour from Florence and 30 minutes from Sienna. It is really a small castle, all rooms are different and you can even rent a house with 3 rooms on the premises. Service is 100 % and the staff is very friendly. Everything is
possible. Food in the restaurant is excellent. This is the first time we have
stayed there but booked for another week in July.

Castel Monastero is my new favorite place on earth! I stayed 5 nights and I can say that this is the BEST HOTEL I EVER STAYED IN MY LIFE!!

I would like to thank each of the staff for offering the best days of my trip:

Enzo: Thanks for everything! You were the first person we meet on the hotel and I can say that you run this hotel with excellence! It's everything so perfect and you made us fell like home.

Andrea: Thanks for all meals! We had the best food in Tuscany ever! Although I would like to try the hamburger (just kidding).

Marco: Anche tu Marco! Thanks for offering the best wines and for the awesome service.

Francesca! Thanks for receiving us for breakfast with a big smile. (by the way, the breakfast at Castel Monastero is a full other review). It's awesome.

I really think I cannot do this review justice in relating just how wonderful I felt Castel Monastero was. The grounds and the buildings are magnificent, the service top notch, the food delicious and the amenities (spa, accommodations, etc) superb. But mostly what struck me was how delightfully peaceful the place was. We arrived after a busy week in Venice and Florence, rushing around to see the notable and impressive sights, but not particularly relaxed or well rested. Within just a few minutes of arriving at the property, we felt an unmistakable calm take over. It helps that it was a brilliantly sunny day in April and the natural setting was enchanting. But there's an incredible sense of zen about this place that's hard to describe. While located pretty much smack in the center of Tuscany, it's set apart from any of the towns and there's a delightful quiet that is underscored by the sounds of the chirping birds and the gentle footsteps along the gravel paths. We had a lovely lunch al fresco and felt ensconced in a sense of refinement and delicacy. We were so taken with the place that we spent far more time relaxing here than expected and limited the towns we visited in exchange for the privilege. As we were traveling with our young adult kids, we had a terrific 2 bedroom suite that was perfectly appointed and afforded comfort and privacy. The grounds were another pleasure to discover and I took great enjoyment in the fully bloomed lilacs on the paths. Finally, I must add that the service was outstanding, from the welcome staff to the management to every waiter and server we encountered. I honestly don't think I can come up with one negative about this place - except perhaps there could have been a little more light in the bedroom. Apart from that, Castel Monastero was sheer perfection.

On our second visit to Tuscany and to Castel Monastero. Can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the entire staff is here. The rooms are top notch, and the breakfasts are fantastic. A great location in the Tuscan countryside from which to launch wine touring in Chianti, Monatalcino or Montepulciano. We will continue to return to this charming spot. They really make you feel like family here.

I have visited this amazing hotel just a week ago. The location of the hotel is just amazing. You can reach all the famous cities in half an hour by car. The hotel is giving you a feeling of as if you are in a movie...The employees are very well trained, professional and very friendly. They are ready to do everything you need just to make you happy and comfortable. The second chef of the restaurant Stelios gave us a cooking course of 3 hours. I can say that Gordon Ramsey is very lucky to have such a professional. The GM of the hotel is the best GM ever. I never met a GM so much interested with guests personally. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Castel Monastero.
If anyone can find anything to complain about this hotel or employees, he should check himself if he is completely perfect.
I think it is absolutely the best service and quality ever!

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
