I can echo the comments in the last few 5* reviews. It is a very special place. It has the advantage of being quite small and away from the busier parts of Northern Tuscany which adds to a very special tranquility, helped by soft spa music being piped in all public places. The 360 degree views are simply amazing. Also... More

When our car entered the castle gates and we drove up the winding road to the castle, I got giddy. It was like living in a fantasy. This place has views unlike any other. They serve breakfast on the side where the sun rises, and dinner on the sunset side. It's what you picture when you picture the ultimate romantic... More

Castello di Velona is a beautifully, romantic, luxurious castle in the Tuscan hills, with wonderful rooms, beautifully views and, of course, fabulous wines from their own vineyards. The staff are all extremely helpful and we felt super spoilt from the moment we arrived till the time we left - a once-in-a-lifetime break for us and we loved every minute of... More

My wife and I and another couple booked 4 nights at this hotel/spa/vineyard in the Montalcino District, home of Brunello wine. We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations, the food, the ambiance, the service and staff and the surrounding countryside. We ate every meal outside, toured wineries and vineyards in the area, sampled the local restaurants, including... More

We spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at the Castello Di Velona. The hotel is a twenty minute drive out of Montalcino and is set on a hilltop surrounded by 360 degree views of the stunning Tuscan countryside. The private drive up to the hotel gives a foretaste of what is to come. The hotel is quite magnificent... More

We were given two nights in this wonderful place by our children for our birthdays and fiftieth wedding anniversary. They had stayed here last year, and wanted us to have the experience. The Castello is situated on a hilltop overlooking vineyards, some of which produce the hotel's excellent brunello di Montalcino. We were upgraded to a spa room, on the... More

I spent hours trying to decide which hotel to stay in around this area and the deciding factor were the staff on the phone when I made enquires about prices. From start to finish the staff were amazing, we were greeted by Serena, who was so welcoming and every other staff member too. Even the owner was very friendly and... More

Very nice location with gorgeous views from hotel rooms and all around. The hotel has been renovated in a modern way where it loses a little of the otherwise possible authentic atmosphere. Modern and practical. Very good breakfast buffet. Reception staff is outstanding in welcoming guests as well as solving any problem fast friendly and smoothly. Especially front office manager...

This castle is beautiful in every which way. It is a true break away from home, with beautiful scenery, relaxation, great food, excellent service, accommodation and spa! I would live here if I could. Book through Small Luxury Hotels and get a free upgrade. We did and the room was fantastic. Definitely book a Spa-type of room as these are... More
