Castle on top of the hill with 360 degree views of the countryside; what more can you ask for? A special feature is the connecting hot pool which is also both indoor and outdoor; pair that experience with glass of the best Brunello wine and tell me if that doesn't put a smile on lips.

I stayed here with family over Easter weekend 2015. I cannot express how amazing our stay was, even despite the rainy and windy weather. The hotel/pool area has absolutely incredible views, the rooms were spacious and very comfortable and the staff consistently went out of their way to help in any way they could. The receptionist even brought her computer... More

My wife and I stayed here in early April. I travel extensively and this place hands down has the most amazing location I've ever seen. Located on top of a mountain with astounding views of a magnificent valley. The service is outstanding and friendly, the restaurant is great. Every meal was superb, and an incredible breakfast buffet, too. We had... More

Simply amazing 360-degree view of the valley and of the castle's own vineyards. We were looking for a nice place to eat lunch as we explored the region of Montalcino, when we stubbled upon this absolute gem of a location. The castle is newly renovated with all the amenities you would expect of a good hotel, but it is its... More

Sheer perfection in every aspect! Our 2 nights here weren’t enough time to truly appreciate how special this hotel- spa (and winery) is. It was the best of 5 high end places we stayed on our recent trip to Italy. We had not planned this stay in advance, but came here when a previous “country inn” booking had problems. The... More

we got married here in 2008. Beautiful locale, exceptional service and attentive staff. Went back to the area in 2009 but the resort was closed for expansion. looking forward to setting up another trip soon.

Surrounded by the idyllic beauty of Tuscany, from where the hotel stands, it offers grandiose views from every room, every terrace, every lounge. This place is simply breathtaking. It comes with a mix tasteful luxury, peaceful romance and a graceful staff. Our room was just what we needed for our romantic getaway: perfect view, private ensuite hottub with thermal water...

I stayed here a couple years ago with my sister and always meant to write a review and never quite got around to it. This place is perfect - the sunken baths in the rooms are to die for. The pool was always nice and empty when we were there and the surrounding view is gorgeous. You couldn't ask for... More

Normally, I'm an "activity junkie"--I like to cram lots of sightseeing and exploring into every day. As soon as I arrived at Castello Velona, I knew that I was going to have to revise my itinerary. The resort is set on a hill overlooking the stunning Tuscan countryside. Every side of the property has amazing views of the rolling hills... More

Outstanding location with magnificent views. The staff is really friendly. A big thank you to Serena, Francesca, Fancesco (x2) and Maoro, who all contributed to a perfect honeymoon! Don't forget to try the swimming pool by night ! Great restaurant as well !
