This is the time you never have when you're at home, about town or at work, busy with the many things you have to do every day. Free time a time when you are free from stress is the most wonderful gift that Castel Monastero, the luxury hotel and spa in Tuscany, can give you. How about starting with a soothing massage in our spa and a swim in our spectacular black basalt pool?
Or a tennis match? Or the unique experience of truffle hunting in the woods and countryside around our resort, followed by a truffle dinner in our restaurants, washed down with some extraordinary Tuscan wine?
You can take to the skies too in a fantastic balloon, flying over the spectacular Chianti hills and its splendid historical towns.
And when your feet touch the ground again you can play a round of golf at the superb 18-hole Ugolino Golf Club, just an hour's drive from our hotel.
Or perhaps you prefer polo? In just a few minutes from your room you can be at the beautiful Villa Sesta Polo Club.
And you've come to the right place if your passion is Italian haute cuisine. Anything else? Would you believe it if we told you we even have a telescope ready for you so you can explore the heavens? This time it's the sky's turn to reflect the beauty of the Earth.
