Give your treatments and therapies a delicious Tuscan twist, staying in a gorgeous, five-star hotel that offers a state-of-the-art spa alongside traditional Italian hospitality plus a Gordon Ramsey restaurant. Who says you can't have your wrap and eat it?

If you are seeking a relaxing setting in which to re-boot your mind and body, we’ve found the perfect place in Tuscany.

Castel Monastero Tuscan Resort & Spa is five star all the way. What was once an ancient hamlet is now a rural retreat with 74 guest rooms and suites scattered through the beautifully restored buildings.

There are two restaurants, including Contrado by Gordon Ramsey, so this is the perfect spot for some gourmet R&R.

However, the  Wellness Centre and Spa are outstanding, whether you simply want to be pampered with some spoiling therapies or opt for one of the detox or weight loss programmes. Waistline reduction is strictly optional!

Three swimming pools, a tennis court, cycle hire, a cookery school and glorious countryside – and Siena just 23 kms away – add to the mix to make this one of Italy’s most special places to stay.

With Siena so close, Castel Monastero is the perfect bolthole from which to visit Il Palio horse race – the jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring spectacle that takes place every July and August.
