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...

Driving along the road we saw the castle in the distance, absolutely breathtaking sitting on top of the mountain overlooking the vineyards. Upon arriving, it only got more beautiful. The grounds are decorated with beautiful rose bushes and the view around the entire castle is stunning. We were professionally and cheerfully greeted by Simone at the front desk, who was...

I can echo the comments in the last few 5* reviews. It is a very special place. It has the advantage of being quite small and away from the busier parts of Northern Tuscany which adds to a very special tranquility, helped by soft spa music being piped in all public places. The 360 degree views are simply amazing. Also...

When our car entered the castle gates and we drove up the winding road to the castle, I got giddy. It was like living in a fantasy. This place has views unlike any other. They serve breakfast on the side where the sun rises, and dinner on the sunset side. It's what you picture when you picture the ultimate romantic...

Castello di Velona is a beautifully, romantic, luxurious castle in the Tuscan hills, with wonderful rooms, beautifully views and, of course, fabulous wines from their own vineyards. The staff are all extremely helpful and we felt super spoilt from the moment we arrived till the time we left - a once-in-a-lifetime break for us and we loved every minute of...

My wife and I and another couple booked 4 nights at this hotel/spa/vineyard in the Montalcino District, home of Brunello wine. We could not have been more pleased with our accommodations, the food, the ambiance, the service and staff and the surrounding countryside. We ate every meal outside, toured wineries and vineyards in the area, sampled the local restaurants, including...

We spent the first three nights of our honeymoon at the Castello Di Velona. The hotel is a twenty minute drive out of Montalcino and is set on a hilltop surrounded by 360 degree views of the stunning Tuscan countryside. The private drive up to the hotel gives a foretaste of what is to come. The hotel is quite magnificent...

We were given two nights in this wonderful place by our children for our birthdays and fiftieth wedding anniversary. They had stayed here last year, and wanted us to have the experience. The Castello is situated on a hilltop overlooking vineyards, some of which produce the hotel's excellent brunello di Montalcino. We were upgraded to a spa room, on the...

I spent hours trying to decide which hotel to stay in around this area and the deciding factor were the staff on the phone when I made enquires about prices.

Dear Guest, I would like to thank you for your positive feedback about your experience at our Resort.

Very nice location with gorgeous views from hotel rooms and all around. The hotel has been renovated in a modern way where it loses a little of the otherwise possible authentic atmosphere. Modern and practical. Very good breakfast buffet. Reception staff is outstanding in welcoming guests as well as solving any problem fast friendly and smoothly. Especially front office manager...
