The Castel Monastero sits in one of the most beautiful stretches of Tuscany; the Ombrone Valley, just 23km from Siena. Surrounded by four hectares of vineyards, chestnut forests and cypress trees, the Resort was originally a medieval village called Monastero dell’Ombrone; the records of the village dating back as far as 1050. Now sympathetically renovated, this ancient hamlet will become the Castel Monastero; the latest addition to the prestigious Forte Village group of properties.

The 74 guestrooms and suites are all decorated in a rustic, yet elegant style. Some are located in the main building, whilst others occupy the charmingly renovated houses of the old village. The Castel Monastero Villa occupies 160m2 and has wonderful views over the village. A chef and a personal butler are available on request.

Castel Monastero offers a superb gourmet restaurant and three bars, including an exclusive wine bar, located in the 13th century cellar. Here guests can sample the finest wines, including vintage Chianti produced and aged in the Resort’s own winery. For those interested in local cuisine, the Resort also offers a cookery school.
