we got married here in 2008. Beautiful locale, exceptional service and attentive staff. Went back to the area in 2009 but the resort was closed for expansion. looking forward to setting up another trip soon.

Surrounded by the idyllic beauty of Tuscany, from where the hotel stands, it offers grandiose views from every room, every terrace, every lounge. This place is simply breathtaking. It comes with a mix tasteful luxury, peaceful romance and a graceful staff. Our room was just what we needed for our romantic getaway: perfect view, private ensuite hottub with thermal water...

I stayed here a couple years ago with my sister and always meant to write a review and never quite got around to it. This place is perfect - the sunken baths in the rooms are to die for. The pool was always nice and empty when we were there and the surrounding view is gorgeous. You couldn't ask for... More

Normally, I'm an "activity junkie"--I like to cram lots of sightseeing and exploring into every day. As soon as I arrived at Castello Velona, I knew that I was going to have to revise my itinerary. The resort is set on a hill overlooking the stunning Tuscan countryside. Every side of the property has amazing views of the rolling hills... More

Outstanding location with magnificent views. The staff is really friendly. A big thank you to Serena, Francesca, Fancesco (x2) and Maoro, who all contributed to a perfect honeymoon! Don't forget to try the swimming pool by night ! Great restaurant as well !

Castello di Velona is a wonderful "home base" for your exploration of Tuscany, particularly of the wine regions near Montalcino. It has exquisite views, friendly staff and a surprisingly good restaurant. Of course, as nice as it was, you'll want to spend as much time at the local vineyards as possible -- and the staff are very helpful in identifying... More

It's hard to believe your eyes when you first see the view from the Castello di Velona. It is definitely one of the most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful, place I have ever stayed. There is a 360 degree view of Val d'Orce, and it doesn't disappoint. After that, the hotel was very nice. We stayed in a modern... More

This hotel is a very unique property set high on a hill just a few km's from Montalcino. Expanded just a few short years ago it has under 50 rooms, tremendous spa and a great kitchen. Another great attribute --their wine is excellent. Take the wine tasting option and higher floors when making your reservation. Staff were excellent.

The view from Montalcino before you arrive (one of their profile pictures) is pretty much all you need to see and know about this resort. The rest is on par, or better. Their pictures are extremely accurate. The views are breath taking. The rooms are amazing, modern, yet rich and warm, the bathrooms are extravagant and magic, the rooms have... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castello for two days...I wish we had more time to enjoy this gem in Toscana, Italy! From the service to the layout of the Castle - no detail was overlooked. The pool area is simply gorgeous. The web photos are true to life. No enhancement there. The views from the pool will take... More
