Château Monfort: 5* Hotel & Spa
Swirling Staircases and beautiful architecture,
delicious food surrounded by decadent furnishings,
She sits with an aperitivo in one hand
in a modern day fairytale castle
Step into Château Monfort with me....
A Fairytale Stay...
Little did I know when checking into Chateau Monfort, that my weekend stay was to be an unforgettable experience.
Months later, I long to back and show off just how splendid it truly is.
As you may remember, my Milan Adventure was due to a moment of spontaneity,
and I wanted to enjoy every last moment of it!
Furnished in beautiful pastel tones, this room has the atmosphere and grandeur of a romantic castle.
Relax at a mirrored table as the sound of the piano fills the air,
& indulge in a variety of choices for aperitivo time...
As your gaze moves along the glass panes, the blush pink exterior catches your eye,
the beautiful crystal dome is the perfect place to relax as the sun sets from a busy day.
The Bar Mezonette is my favourite place to sit back and relax in style...
it's just a shame it's in a different country to where I live!
(Or maybe I will have frequent here as a second home....)
Civetta Superior Room
"There is a mysterious forest in which to relive that sweet and entertaining exhilaration of childhood that made us jump whilst hearing the “Sleeping Beauty” fairy-tale. In that magical forest, where adulthood seems to disappear, we glimpse in the darkness the eyes of an owl watching over us as we sleep. Laying at the foot of the imposing tree of life, one finds themselves sleeping amongst the infinite reflections of the mirror it hosts... "
Truthfully, I was unsure about this room when looking online for somewhere to stay,
but I have to say that the decor of this room is anything but garish is real life.
The whimsical theme of this room perfectly complements the hotel overall.
The modern classical decor moves seamlessly with you from
outside the entrance through the swirling staircases to your private room,
so much so that you begin to truely feel like your are in your dream fairytale abode.
The Concierge service are the secret to what made my trip in Milan brilliant!
Due to the spontaneous nature of my stay, I had little time to plan, but this was not needed in the slightest anyway.
With their pearls of local milanese knowledge, they ensured I experienced as much of Milan as I could
from directing me to the best place to eat pizza to where to go next and directions.
They never tired of my stream of questions throughout my days as I became a familiar face at their desk.
AMORE AND PSICHE SPA
an luxurious spa dedicated to the mythological gods Amore and Psyche
it's ambience is relaxing and evocative
Stepping into the spa, you are taken a far beyond the city buzz outside it's walls
as the circle downpour of the agora falls & calms you.
Three synchronized jets of water come out of the wall, sided by the Mediterranean bath and a wooden sauna.
Continuing through the Spa, you can find a hot bench beside a salty pool.
Behind the pool, separated by a sheet of glass and curtains, you can lounge in the relaxation area.
With exotic touches to it's ambience and refreshments to quench your thirst,
this Spa ensures you relax & rejuvenate.
There are also a number of treatment rooms and a private spa availible.
As I was having too much fun on this busy spontaneous weekend,
I was only able to do a quick video below but it does not do this beautiful gem justice....
.... and so I must truly urge that you go and experience this yourself!!
