True luxury and well kept. So let us focus on what has to improve: - annoying same music on every day - opera songs for breakfast kill conversation - SLH, still no fruit or flower in room - walls around the castle prohibit great views out of pool or restaurant - Food ok, not superb - pool boys rather reactive...

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in July 2015. The hotel is located about 20 minutes south of Montalcino, high on a hill, surrounded by vineyards and spectacular 360 degree views of the Val d'Orcia and Mount Amiata. We had a junior spa suite in the newer part of the hotel. The room was fabulous - very... More

Absolutely fantastic resort. The castle and the rooms are both unique and beautiful, and the 360 degree views of the Tuscan countryside are simply unparalleled. The pool/spa facilities are luxurious and well-maintained. The staff truly goes above and beyond to make sure that all guests have an enjoyable experience. Although I have seen a few reviews saying that the food... More

I'm a travel agent who has been lucky to have seen and stayed in many of Italy's legendary hotels. Of all the beautiful hotels I've seen, there was one that I wanted to share with my family.-Castello di Velona. There are beautiful vistas all over Tuscany, but none quite so spectacular as the peak with the 360 degree view that... More

Castello do Velona is the last stop on my three week holiday around Italy. Glad this was my last stop. Perfect place to enjoy the best of Tuscany (and Italy) with its location right smack in the Val D'orcia and who can forget the magical 360 degrees views all around. Service is good, food is great. The thermal pool is... More

From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by the professionalism and warmth of the staff, the incredible views and the beautiful property. Our rooms were lovely and large (a junior castle suite). The staff was so helpful and accommodating and treated our 8 year-old daughter like a princess. And the views are breathtaking. We highly recommend the Castello di... More

I've have spet two days at Castello di Velona. Amazing place with spectacular view. And this is nature. But who made the difference were the people who looked after us during our stay. One of the best breakfast buffet I have ever seen, with a great selection of gluten free and tasty cakes and pastries. Room service were fast and... More
