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

We were just here for three days and loved it. Property is beautiful, everyone was friendly, service was good, restaurant's food was delicious. The stars are the location and the views - stunning! This area is a slice of paradise! My only minor (yes, very minor) comments is that the included wine tasting was not very good at all when... More

The reviewers that mentioned its understaffed ways were understating it. This is our 4th stop across Italy for our honeymoon, and this is the 2nd worst service of our dozens of dinners, rental cars, trains, planes, tour guides, etc... I'll save any reader the venting tirade and go with bullet points: Highs: -The view -The chic property -Some layers of... More

Dear Luke H, thank you very much for expressing your feelings about your recent stay at Castello di Velona. I'm surprised to understand that your Honeymoon was not as perfect as someone would have imagined at a start of a wonderful marriage life. I'm sorry to have understood that your impressions about our SPA was not as positive as the... More

Along with two other couples, we stayed here for three nights. This property should be a 5 star hotel, on par with a Relais & Chateaux property. The view is one of the best in the area. The building and the grounds are very nice. A number of the staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious and thermal... More

This resort is definitely full service with exceptional attention to detail by staff! Everything we've needed or asked for has been provided with a smile and genuine caring. It feels like a spa day all day long and the views are breath taking! Not really a young kid place, but our college teenagers are having a blast!

Read my June 2013 review to see my first reaction to the Castello di Velona . Most of my glowing review still holds: exquisite view, lovely facilities, and for the most part, a well-trained staff. I still recommend the spa rooms for the extensive and beautiful views of the Val d''Orcia. On this visit our son in Seattle ordered two... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. The location and 360 degree panoramic views are incredible. The views cannot be beaten. The thermal pool was always clean and the spa facilities fantastic. The rooms were in traditional tuscan style and spacious. The reception staff were absolutely fantastic and always approachable and knowledgeable. The short tour on arrival was a nice touch... More

This really was an amazing property. We enjoyed our stay and all in all I do recommend this hotel. We stayed in a Sunset Junior Suite and thought the room and bath were stunning. Our patio overlooked the hills of Tuscany. Your couldn't dream of a more picturesque perch. This hotel could be rated 5 star but I think there... More

We had such a wonderful experience in our short, 2 day, visit that we know we will return. Staff is of the highest quality as are the accommodations, dining, wine, views, spa and more. There are few locations with views that are seen from this fantastic castle.

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.
