We stayed here for my husband's 40th birthday. It was our first visit to Tuscany and we were not disappointed - the views from the hotel, especially the pool and breakfast area are simply stunning. In fact the pool and spa area is one of the best we have ever visited - the water is lovely and warm and spending... More

This was the first stop of our honeymoon and we loved it. They had a nice sparkling wine for us at the room, which was very nice. As the hotel sits on top of a hill, the view is very open and beautiful. We stayed 4 nights that saw cold sunny and rainy days. Our room was the Sunset room.... More

We arrived on a hot August day. We had booked a suite, and upon arriving at our room discovered the AC not working. The General Manager arrived to advise us that the system was being worked on.

This is a stunning property. After a bumpy arrival with some check-in confussion, Ruta from reception took control and quickly showed us to our beautiful spa suite. The room was incredible. Step out onto the patio and enjoy the gorgeous views of the Tuscan vineyards and countryside. Continued frustrations with housekeeping marred our experience. Yet again, Ruta to the rescue.... More

My wife and my son and his wife spent a week at this fabulous resort/winery and thermal spa in Tuscany. When a rentavilla.com rental turned out to be very bad, we showed up on the resorts doorstep late in the evening. They gave us a great rate for the two rooms, including an amazing breakfast buffet each morning and free... More

If you want to spoil yourself with top notch accommodations and service while you are in the Tuscany area near Montelpuciano you should consider Castello di Velona. Staff are eager to help and friendly. Food is excellent. Spectacular sunsets.

The public areas are wonderful too, particularly the spa which is a little hidden away - we only realised it existed on our last day. The rooms themselves are... More
