This was our last stop on a 4 week trip and what a way to wind down. The drive in was lovely through the iron gates of this medieval castle. We were met by the concierge team at the front of the property which was a lovely start. From there you could see the spectactular 360 degree view this hotel... More

The best about this hotel is the location... simply magnificient. We had a perfect stay there, since it was our honeymoon, we had the nice surprise to be upgraded to a suite and had a bottle of Champagne in the room. It's a well appointed hotel with everything you need and great friendly service. The pool is amazing and the... More

At the risk of repeating every other review, the location of this hotel is breathtaking, perched atop a hill, overlooking Tuscan vineyards. A unique hotel with excellent staff, we wished we could have had more time here. Five days wasn't enough. We would have liked more time to just relax at the beautiful pool, but we were running around, trying... More

The hotel is simply perfect. From the pool to the balcony, everything is amazing. But beware: ask what is the cost of everthing you do, because even a simple snack available "to the public" at the lobby, comes with a bill later. We called reception asking if the snacks/ cocktail were free for guests, answer was "yes", once we sat... More

Approaching the hotel is impressive. The views are stunning, location is wonderful and initially the overall impression is fantastic. The spa and pool look great, and the rooms (we had a junior sunset suite) and spacious, big beds and quality linen with probably the best, fluffiness towels I have seen in a hotel. The food in the main restaurant is... More

We had the pleasure of returning to CDV as part of our 20th anniversary trip to Tuscany this June. We were smitten with this stunning property 3 years ago and this trip did not disappoint. We had a castle junior suite with a private balcony that was large enough to very comfortably contain a table, 2 chairs and 2 chaise... More

We had our wedding night at Castello di Velona and arrived at 05u00AM. The night reception was there and but after a wonderful day with a lot of love and happiness this was a rude awakening. A very unfriendly person welcomed us and made no effort to get rid of the bugs in our room. We had the Deluxe Suite... More

We stayed at the Castello for 3 nights in early July. The hotel is beautifully situated and the views of the countryside and sunset wonderful. The hotel was well staffed and we found everyone to be excellent, always willing to help. Our room was a sunset junior suite in the new/lower level of the hotel. The room was well appointed... More

This hotel’s setting is magnificent, and hard to describe: I suggest checking out the hotel website’s photos. It looks like a medieval castle. Nestled high on a hill, with views all around, the hotel’s setting reminds me of Minis Tirith from Lord of the Rings (the capital of Gondor). The pool and spa area are world class. Check out all...
