You could not ask for a more charming setting or a more relaxed and beautiful hotel. The décor and facilities could only have been designed by the Italians who have the ability to create every modern facility and design without losing the charm and character of such a historic site. The rooms, common areas and pools perfectly match a relaxed...

My wife booked us for a couple of nights at Castello di Velona, for my birthday, and I intentionally avoided doing too much research ahead of time; I wanted to be surprised. The drive from Florence was splendid, staying off the main highway's and keeping largely to the "white roads," winding through the countryside, the villages, and at one point...

We had a wonderful stay at Castello di Velona. The hotel and its restaurant are both very good. The staff is also very friendly. The room was ok. Nothing special about it, but you will spend more time at the spa anyway. Amazing spa! We would definitely go back!

My wife and I have not have stayed in a hotel together on our own since we had our daughter just under 3 years ago. We took advantage of a grandmother staying and decided to stay at Castello di Velona. This place is truly unique. I have never written a TripAdvisor Review or any other review online but this stay...

My husband and I were in a romantic trip and this place is perfect for it. We watched the sunset from the thermal swimming pool and it were amazing. We enjoyed the spa. The staff were friendly. We had a very good time.

Our review was very similar to a June 13 review from travelers who also live in the Boston area as we do. Castello di Velona was one of several properties we visited during our honeymoon following our wedding on the Bodensee. We chose this resort based on some of the reviews and its location to Poggio di Sotto (as we...

An absolutely beautiful hotel with stunning views, lovely facilities and incredible service. The staff was wonderful and arranged an array of activities for us, from a day of wine tasting to a Vespa rental so that we could explore the towns nearby. Andrea Nicole in particular was great, as was Walter, the driver we had several times during our stay...

While in the thermal pool that overlooks the Val d'Orcia I just kept hearing someone say "Oh my God, Oh my God". This is exactly one's reaction to this hotel. What a location, absolutely incredible. Loved the room, the view, the pools and the spa. Antonio was great, super helpful. It just may be the most romantic hotel my wife...

My husband and I stayed for two evening mid October. It was a true slice of heaven. We will be returning for one week next year. The hotel itself is magnificent. The decor is stunning, the smell of a wood burning fireplace is heavenly against the cold fall air. The atmosphere is so relaxing and romantic. The room was incredible...

The Castle was everything we hoped for in a Tuscany experience. A bit challenging to find at first, but everything was first class. From the stunning views to the exceptional service and the indoor/outdoor thermal pool -- everything was just perfect. The food was outstanding and their wines measure up as well. Definitely one of the highlights of our first...
