There’s something sexy about an Italian hotel in Tuscany where you can learn how to cook and get a good rubdown. Opening just a few months ago, in July 2009, Castel Monastero is a one luxury Tuscan resort not to be missed. Located just 14 miles east of Siena in the historic medieval village of Monastero d’Ombrone in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, the resort occupies a collection of stone buildings on a hilltop, dating back to the 11th century.
With two restaurants by multi-Michelin starred Chef Gordon Ramsey (and our personal favorite on the cooking show circuit), Castel Monastero is poised to take its place among the top destinations for Tuscan cuisine. A regular schedule of course in gastronomy taught by renowned chefs and wine experts is all part of the resort’s culinary experience.
In conjunction with Urban Retreat, The 10,000 square foot Castel Monastero Spa is dedicated to instilling calm through treatments and detoxification (and you’ll need it after all that great food and wine). The resort has one indoor and two outdoor swimming pools, as well as meeting space perfect for business events and weddings.
So we say, “Get thee to Tuscany!”
Or, as Gordon would say, “Why the f@-k are still sitting there for? Stop it with your pathetic excuses! Do you care about your life or not?”
And no one, and we mean, no one, wants to disappoint the master.
