Absolutely loved this place. It is literally a castle with the most amazing views. Upon checking into the spa suite (impressive to say the least) - we immediately extended our stay for an extra night. Amazing food and wine, we had dinner there a few times. I wouldn't say the front desk was the friendliest I have encountered but nothing... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon in July and were very disappointed after being very excited. The room was nice but not as luxurious as other rooms we had stayed at in neighbouring areas, despite being more expensive. That was fine, the main problem was at night time. There was a terrible sulphuric smell in the room from " a... More

One of the best hotel experiences of our lives. This hotel is fantastic. Situated on a hilltop overlooking the Val d' Orcia, is a refurbished castle. The view to the hotel and from the hotel were both some of the best we saw in our two weeks in Italy. Add in the surrounding vineyard, the pool, the service, the modern... More

Tuscany is a great place to travel and offers a wide range of vacation proposals to satisfy all demands. If you look for a top spa resort, Castello di Velona is the best choice. The location is wonderful and the view the resort can't be described in a few words. The service is good and the very friendly staff will... More

At a friend's recommendation, we stayed two nights at the wonderful hotel. We wished we had stayed a week! Although pricey, this 5 star just refurbished castle was an incredible find. The staff was professional, helpful and at your beck and call. Our junior suite was two floors, large and pristine clean. The views from hotel were breathtaking even when... More

If you are staying in Tuscany, you HAVE TO GO HERE. If I could give this resort 10 circles, i would. The service from front desk to restaurants was just the best and comparable to the very best hotels in the world. The views from the hotel, which is on a high hill, looking across Tuscany are worth every penny.... More

We turned a curve just outside of the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate (near Montalcino), and there at a short distance on its own vineyard-covered hill, sticking out into the Val d’Orcia is the stunning hotel Castello di Velona. You think, “this must be a dream.” Perched on top of its own mountain it looks like the perfect fantasy of an... More
