This hotel, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, was a monastery in the eleventh century. Over the centuries it was converted into a castle, then a country house and, finally, a borgo. The three outdoor pools are surrounded by a large solarium with sun loungers and the Spa, housed in two farmhouses, is the ideal place where you can enjoy moments of pure relaxation. Two gourmet restaurants are located within the borgo. The menus were written by award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay: “Contrada” restaurant, overlooking the main square, has two dining rooms and offers table service and an à la carte menu with traditional Tuscan recipes reinterpreted with a modern twist. “La Cantina” restaurant, is located in the medieval cellars of Castel Monastero and serves regional specialties. Guests can also attend, the cooking classes designed by chef Gordon Ramsay and the resident chef, Stylianos Sakalis.

Review

From our arrival the professionalism and courtesy of the staff was excellent and throughout our stay there was always evidence of senior management around discreetly overseeing the whole operation. The rooms are beautiful, very spacious with fabulous views of the countryside and are well fitted out. The food is excellent and if you get a chance, you must visit the cellar restaurant!! Nothing was any problem for any of the staff and we will definitely be returning. – Susan, Surrey

The hotel, which is more a resort or even retreat than a simple hotel, is stylish and exclusive. The rooms are spacious and elegant, the service is friendly and comforting and the food is delicious and exquisite. Our highlight was the spa with its floating saltwater pool. – Graham & Gemma, Guildford

The two restaurants were both great. The Gordon Ramsey Contra was top class. The Cantina was great for lunch and dinner. Lovely Tuscan food with daily specials. The hotel spa was very relaxing including the floatation pool much like the dead sea which guests could use whenever they wanted. We had such a great trip and the staff was so helpful! – Trusted Customer
