Stunning medieval setting for gourmands
In a stunning setting in 4 hectares of grounds in the Tuscan countryside, 23km from Siena, stands the 11th century village of Monastero dell’Ombrone, where, within its medieval walls, Castel Monastero offers warm hospitality, exquisite cuisine and a relaxing ambiance. Elegant guest rooms and suites are furnished in a mix of rustic and contemporary styles with wonderful views of the vineyards and olive groves, and fine culinary delights await in the sophisticated gourmet restaurant, originally opened in partnership with Gordon Ramsay and now run by rising Italian chef, Nello Cassese. Tuscany is renowned for its cuisine and this resort hotel offers a series of cookery courses and masterclasses organised by first class Italian chefs. Housed in a 13th century wine cellar, La Cantina is an exclusive wine bar and restaurant with local speciality wines; some aged in the resort’s own winery. There’s a delightful swimming pool, tennis courts and a spa, and the surrounding area is perfect for discovery by car, bicycle, horseback or foot. Car hire included.
