18 EXCLUSIVE EXPERIENCE
Masterpieces of art and architecture, unique and tasty products from the local cuisine, and the myth of extraordinary wines: Tuscany is all of this and so much more. It is a region that gives the thrill of living a different emotion every day, from the medieval atmosphere of San Gimignano or Monteriggioni to the mysterious fascination of Sovana, Pitigliano and Volterra, the cradle of Etruscan civilization, as well as the paths of the great interpreters of Italian painting such as Piero della Francesca, and the famous wine cellars where the great vintages of Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti patiently mature.
Just a few minutes from Siena and the most stimulating itineraries, close to magnificent museums and the most exclusive palaces, a splendid Spa Relais with the suggestive name of Castel Monastero has opened whose origins are lost in the story of medieval Tuscany. Bought by a local noble family, the property became their country villa, a site dedicated to the celebration of the hunt and to the gathering of the grapes from the nearby vineyards. After a careful restoration aimed at re-establishing its ancient splendor, it is ready today to welcome guests with almost ten centuries of history. Once you have passed through the walls that protect the old town and find yourself in the piazza onto which the splendid buildings face, or enter one of the rooms or suites, or the marvelous independent villa, you can immediately feel the fascination, colors and style of the most authentic Tuscany.
From its windows, vineyards, forests and fields roam beyond eyesight, and immediately before you is the splendid piazza, with its café, its restaurant, and delightful jewel of a church— the perfect way to experience Tuscany. www.castelmonastero.com
