You are in the land of the Renaissance where proportion and balance are everything. Could there be a more beautiful and harmonious place to get back into shape, detox your body, and rejuvenate yourself? The splendid spa at this luxury hotel in Tuscany is the perfect place.  In the two traditional old elegant Tuscan villas, just a stone's throw from the hamlet, you can try out the extraordinary Slimming, Detox, and Anti Age treatments.


Complimenting these treatments and enhancing their effect is the amazing "Aquae Monasterii" course with its high saline density sea oil pool, designed exclusively for the spa by the medical team of Thalasso del Forte, the spa at Forte Village, a World's Leading Resort since 1998. But that's not all. In the healthy, peaceful setting, the extremely discreet spa has been chosen by internationally recognised medical centres providing plastic and aesthetic surgery, for post-op convalescence after reshaping and rejuvenating operations, for both men and women.


If you’re looking for inner harmony, just close your eyes and inhale the warmth of nature all around you. In the woods, the countryside, and the wonderful garden around the property and its spa, you can try some intensely energising yoga sessions, led by internationally renowned qualified instructors.


Other options are:

  • Medical beauty treatments

  • Osteopathy and emotional release techniques

  • Acupuncture sessions

  • Positive thinking sessions and weekends

  • Women's Planet: a choice of programmes and activities aimed at women covering everything from aesthetic to emotional aspects.

  • Enjoy a gourmet spa…All the dietary menus in the programme have been designed and developed by the internationally renowned chef Gordon Ramsay, who also created the menu of the Contrada restaurant. Guests taking part in these special programmes will benefit from a reserved area within the restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in order to receive suitable dishes, which are obviously different to those eaten by guests not following treatments, and will be taken care of by serving staff trained to meet the needs of guests undergoing treatment.

  • Enjoy the Berber Ritual for couples… a great idea for honeymooners. Losing yourself completely in the Oriental world, a world made of ancient spices’ scents, fragrant essences, vibrant colours, melodious sounds, and music. Water, air, ground, and fire in special alternation and combination, are given following the rituals of an ancient culture. Taking care of yourself has a specific meaning in the Oriental culture: it fortifies body and soul, brings luck and true love, and strengthens relationships… Like it was in the past, the Berber Massage is still a purification ritual, part of the thermal rituals of the hammam; this ceremony was offered to the bride by her mother and to the couple before their marriage. Pumper yourself with the experience of an immersive and sensual couple ritual in our SPA suite, surrounded by the atmosphere of candlelight and the inebriating perfumes of the Oriental world… Or why not be pampered…with the diamond Rose. Enchanting couple sensory experience to dive yourself in a wonderful universe of beauty and totally transform your skin with the power of innovative active principals.  The heady aroma of Damask Rose and diamond dust, the magic ingredient of Natura Bissé products, mixed in a fragrant and intense blend. A gentle exfoliation with Damascus rose scrub, makes your skin renewed and moisturized;  the embracing massage cherishes the couple in a romantic ritual. Rose petals, private Hammam, and hydro massage complete the treatment making your dream a reality…


A wonderful location offering all the facilities one would expect. With 76 guestrooms and suites, gourmet dining, gym, and 3 elegant swimming pools…the perfect destination to take it easy.  Quote, reference: 3942.
