CHÂTEAU MONFORT is more than just another luxury hotel. This is a home away from home, where guests can cozy up with a book or chat with travel companions and fellow guests in the common spaces like The Lounge Bar Mezzanotte, situated off the lobby under a stunning dome ceiling, or Alcova del Rubacuori. The on-site Amore & Psiche (Cupid and Psyche) SPA and fitness center is a place where you easily forget the commotion of everyday life and surrender yourself to moments of total bliss, particularly with an immersion in the tepid salt-water pool under chromatic healing lights. A member of the esteemed Planetaria Hotels of Italy, the Château Monfort not only fires the imagination but also delights with the very best in first-class amenities and attentive service. The ornately designed historic building is an architectural marvel of neo-Romantic art and décor, whose public spaces impart an air of Old World luxury and charm.
Each of the seventy-seven rooms and suites are likewise designed to envelop guests in the romance of another place and time, while the junior suites are breathtakingly outfitted in décor inspired by one of five operas: L’Uccello di Fuoco, La Traviata, Madame Butterfly, Turandot, and Cinderella. Open April through October and located in the heart of Milan, the hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the city—the main fashion district as well at the Piazza Duomo, with its stunning fourteenth-century Gothic cathedral and expansive square, are only a few minute’s walk away. Once back at the Château, your dining options include no less than three different themed rooms at the hotel’s main restaurant, Rubacuori. Here, one can indulge in the most carefully prepared and authentic Italian dishes and Milanese specialties. The wine offerings come straight from the hotel’s personal cellar, the elegant Cella di Bacco wine bar, where one can also book custom wine tastings.
