We were guests of the hotel for four nights in September 2015, and we had a lovely stay. Our room was a Sunset Junior Suite, and it had a spectacular view over the countryside. The room itself was quite spacious and the bathroom was lovely. It had a neat sunken shower/tub room that was pretty fun. We had thermal water... More

If there is a more beautiful spot in this world, I can hardly imagine it. The views from this hilltop hotel across the Tuscan countryside are stunning. Make sure you have dinner outside at their restaurant. The food is very good, and the view at sunset is an experience of a lifetime. The other highlight is their amazing pool--absolutely perfect...

The hubby came across this resort in his research for best places to stay in Tuscany and Castello de Velona did not disappoint. We had a wonderful stay. Very comfortable with amazing views from our room of the Tuscany hills. From the front desk to the wait staff to the bartender and the spa, all the people who worked here... More

The view across the valley has to be seen to be believed. Add in the great service, the hot pools (excellent when its cold), the spa (with a very skilled and experienced Vietnamese masseuse!), and we could not tear ourselves away from this place. A 5-star experience.

We recently enjoyed a two night stay in this castle turned hotel in the hills outside of Montalcino. Our room (Number 2) was a two room mini-suite with a sitting room, bedroom and small bathroom. All of the decor was attractive and the room was very comfortable and offered everything one would wish or want. The staff was incredibly welcoming,... More

Hilltop renovated castle tuned spa/resort on acres of vineyards with views of the rolling Tuscan landscape. Great wines produced on site. Romantic restaurant with scrumptious menu and talented chef. Spa facilities and pool top notch. Breakfast and alfresco dining are wonderful. Service excellent and courteous. Great spot from which to explore the area.

This hotel sits atop an isolated hilltop with extraordinary views of the Tuscan countryside. Absolutely stunning! We were in room #18 which had its own large patio with lounge chairs and table with chairs. It was private and quiet. The room was a suite which included sitting room--two small sofas, table & chairs, tv, minibar--and a bedroom and bathroom. The... More

When we first rounded the bend that led us to Velona, we thought it was a castle that we should stop to take a photo of. Then we realized it was our hotel. The experience lived up to our initial impressions. The staff were attentive and helpful throughout, whether it was for wine tastings or something for our 1.5yr old... More

This hotel is sits on top of a hill overlooking beautiful vineyards. Our room was amazing with a spacious living room terrace. Service is superb. Breakfast to die for. We also had dinner at the restaurant every night of our stay. Besides the great food, the waitress and sommeliers were very helpful and friendly.
