Castel Monastero – a wonderfully set wedding venue in Tuscany!

Why write something about Castel Monastero?

Well there is a particular preference to this amazing property amidst the rolling hills of Chianti, in between Siena and Arezzo province. I have started my professional career here and worked for 3 seasons in which I have learned a lot and have met wonderful people whom I still have a special bond with!

My monthly blog is dedicated to this family who have recently celebrated the 10th year anniversary from its first took off! Happy 10th Castel Monastero!

Now a luxury and romantic resort just a stone’s throw away from Siena, it was an 11th century monastery, then a castle and country residence of the noble Chigi family.

Their well furnished country chic style rooms and suites may sleep up to 130ish people.

Coming here is like getting back to the 1000DC with its main piazza with the typical well where the folk would fetch pails of water and the other would attend the mass in the delightful church dedicated to Saint Jacob and Saint Christopher. Be it religious or symbolic, you will have your intimate blessing embraced by the renaissance buildings in the square.

Your welcome reception? You either choose to have an oudoor dinner under the stars or covered by elegant marquees, or inside the ex wine cellar, the team will definitely help you pick the right choice based on your wishes. Here you may find both gourmet and tuscan cuisine cured by the Executive Chef Enrico Marmo.

Need to regain energy from last night’s party? No worries! The SPA team will be happy to cuddle you!
