The unusual Château Monfort is set in a historic building in a leafy area on the fringes of the city centre of Milan. It isn’t your typical storybook chateau, and whilst it is certainly stylish, it is as far you can get from serious Milanese luxury design.
Chateau Monfort’s public spaces are theatrical or maybe cinematic mixing modern gestures and classic elements in unusual colour combinations. You could call it Louis XXI or “neo-Romantic.” All 77 rooms are lavishly and fancifully decorated and themed after different fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The mix of antique details and modern facilities makes for a unique, glamorous chic style. Whilst quirky there are all the functional treats and accessories that you would expect of a 5 star hotel including luxury toiletries, rain showers and up to date technology.
Restaurant Rubacuori serves classic Italian cuisine, the Mezzanotte Lounge Bar is open until late, and La Cella Di Bacco wine bar features an impressive wine list. Breakfast is quite the treat. Served in an intimate dining room where the seats were shaped as hearts and the plates and cutlery decorate the wall, the choice includes everything from cupcakes to charcuterie.
A full-service spa is at your disposal throught the fairtytale experience. This 5-star boutique hotel is located in Milan's historic centre, an 8-minute walk from Piazza San Babila and the fashion area of Via Montenapoleone. Via Montenapoleone and its designer residents are merely a 10 minute walk from the hotel, the iconic sights of the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II are just a further 5 minutes walk from there.
