For those interested in purchasing a truly amazing property, Castel Monastero in Tuscany, Italy has a pretty irresistible offer: five properties that beautifully combine old architecture with contemporary amenities. There are two villas and two different types of apartments for sale that have kept the original terracotta and stone walls, but which have been extensively renovated to meet the 21st century standards of luxury and comfort.
Originally a 11th century monastery, the estate is now a luxe resort run by Eleganzia Hotels & Spas, a company with three decades of experience in the industry. Each property is fitted with air conditioning, alarm system, television and telephone, and boasts luxe furnishings and fittings from prestigious brands across Italy. They also have generous outdoor spaces which range from 400 to 1,600 square meters (4,305 to 17,222 square feet).
The owners of these properties will also enjoy full access to all the resort’s services and facilities. These include two restaurants overseen by Gordon Ramsay, indoor and outdoor pools, a bar set in the medieval piazza, and an amazing 10,764-square-foot spa with expert detox programs by Dr. Mosaraf Ali. Services are varied and they range from butler and limousine service, property maintenance, babysitting, and groceries, to arranging cooking lessons, excursions and different sporting activities.
As if all this was not enough, Eleganzia also offers financial investment management. This includes marketing the property and helping find tenants for the periods when the properties are not occupied. Each residence will be promoted in the best real estate markets, making sure that their owners will get the best possible deals for temporary or annual rentals. It really doesn’t get any better than that!
