"Good morning, we would like to report the very pleasant stay we spent at the Castello di Velona. An enchanting structure. Promp reception and lots of kindness. In particular the professional support received from Mrs. Tiziana who directed us to "Settimo Senso" restaurant: Delicious! Also grateful for the wine tasting, thermal pools and a wonderful 360 degree panoramic wiew of Val D'Orcia. Thank for your care. We'll be back! "

We stayed with my husband during Easter at Castello di Velona. We had a great time; the hotel is beautiful, and we were warmly welcomed. I especially appreciated the assistance of the concierge Natasha. She was very kind and helpful in arranging wine tastings, transfers, and truffle hunting. Our UNESCO Junior room is fabulous with its stunning view of the Val D'Orcia. The Settimo Senso restaurant is excellent. The chef is brilliant; he delighted us with his excellent cuisine. We had a lovely stay and highly recommend this property.

Staying at Castello di Velona was a dream - a perfect blend of luxury and history set in the stunning Tuscan landscape. Every aspect, from the sumptuous rooms and the thermal spa to the exquisite local cuisine, was impeccable. It's an experience that beautifully marries relaxation with cultural richness. Absolutely unforgettable!

The castle has a spectacular view of the entire Orcia Valley, with excellent dining options. I personally enjoyed the breakfast, which was included in my tariff. The staff here were also very attentive. I stayed here for 2 nights with my friends from London, seeking an authentic countryside experience in Italy. I believe Florence would have been the best option.

My expectations did not meet a 5 luxury star hotel. The castle is beautiful, the views are superb staff is friendly, breakfast good, however we ran into a couple of issues. Overall, their furniture is a bit outdated and their linens could be better as well. Our room had an exhaust fan underneath our room, synched to our bedroom, so at night we could smell all four courses from the roasted potatoes to the balsamic vinegar to bread making, to the point our clothes permiated. It was not easy to relax specially after coming back from all day driving and sieghtseeing. I ordered a virgin mojito which was $27.50 euros, a bit much to pay when standard mocktail should be 20-22 in 5 star hotels. The biggest issues was getting a massage. I will just say the male masseuse was bit unprofessional during my treatment. I would not come back or recommend it, even it has an Unesco view.

This year we decided to spend our Easter in Tuscany. Last February we were visiting Montalcino, when we stopped by at Castello di Velona by chance. The castle was closed because of the renovations of the thermal pools, but Roxana, a real nice and kind lady from the hotel, allowed us in and let us visit the castle. We were there the whole morning, sipping coffee while she was telling us the story of the castle and all the services offered at the premises. She told us about the immense restoration work that the castle faced many years ago and we were amazed by her way of talking with full love and dedication. She was a real host! Once we finished touring the castle, we fell in love with it so quickly that we decided to book for our Easter holiday. We arrived this past Saturday and spent two days there. We felt as if we were in a fairy tale. Our room was a UNESCO room, very quiet and with a spectacular view. It was finely furnished and extremely clean. The bed was very comfortable. In the evening we dined at Settimo Senso Restaurant. We were welcomed by Mrs. Mirela, who was very professional and described to us all the dishes we ordered. The wine, Brunello di Montalcino, strictly of their production, was truly divine and so was the sommelier. In addition to having appreciated and savoured everything, we complimented for the impeccable service as well as the available and kind staff, including Alessandro, the F&B manager of the castle. Yesterday we spent a beautiful day at the thermal Spa and Dr. Paolo Bruno explained to us all the benefits of the thermal waters which come from a depth of 250 meters. We then had lunch by the pool and even there the service was impeccable. Food was great and well served. Today we will leave sadly and we are already thinking of coming back in July. We thank all the staff so much for letting us have a wonderful stay. We discovered this magnificent castle and it will always be in our hearts. Special thanks to Alessandro Sapia, the hotel manager. We met not only a professional, but also a very kind and nice person. We will be back soon!

The place is super kitschy. The food is bad and unreasonably expensive for the quality. The place was almost empty, after 30 minutes bread came and food arrived after 50 minutes and was cold, small and not tasty. They didn’t even ask if wanted wine. Stay away from this place.

We booked 3 days in July in this splendid property. We immediately understood the professionalism of their team. Wonderful people. Very quick. With 2 emails they fulfilled all our requests. They also informed us that they have had the Thermal SPA certification for 10 days. This is truly fantastic and we will certainly make use of this wonderful SPA which must be fantastic when viewed on the site. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart for the care and professionalism of the very talented Mrs. Roxana. She was kind to us. We can't wait to meet you and spend some good time at Castello Di Velona.
