The facilites are flawless, excellent service and nice surroundings. Not very typical, but very comfortable nevertheless. Stayed for lunch and winetasting, and the overall experience is that I expected a bit more of the wines and the food, to match the high prices.

Stayed: September 2017

From the moment we arrived, we received unparalleled service. The staff are friendly, engaging and go out of their way to accommodate requests. We stayed in one one the “castle” rooms which was spacious and elegant. The view from our room was breathtaking - gorgeous Tuscan countryside. The hotel is situated atop a high hill which offers 360° views of the surrounding area. The location is also perfect for taking day trips to explore the numerous charming walled cities nearby. We ate at both restaurants and had exceptional meals which truly highlighted the best of Tuscany. The estate wine, Brunello di Montalcino, is outstanding - some of the best we’ve ever had. The wine tasting was educational and exciting. Another highlight was the mineral water pools which are naturally hot, very big and truly luxurious. We all agreed that we will be returning to Castello di Velona as soon as we can. This hidden beauty is my favorite spot in all of Italy!

CASTELLO DI VELONA Is one of my favorite hotels ever. Getting there was difficult because we followed Google maps which took us off course down some Vineyard path. Other than that it was absolutely fantastic. We spent long periods of time in the heated pool outdoors watching the sunset the view was incredible. The thermal spas made us feel great. The food was outstanding and the rooms were clean and beautiful. Service was great.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Castello di Velona. From the moment we checked in we knew this was going to be special. We had the terrace suite - which features a private patio with a thermal hot tub and views that were simply incredible. The hotel is perched on the top of a hill, and is surrounded by vineyards and rolling hills. We could watch both the sunrise and sunset from the hot tub, and those images are the first that come to mind whenever I think about our trip to Italy.

Food is very good - I had read previous reviews that were a bit mixed but our meals were excellent, as was the wine. Yes it is pricey - but no more than a nice dinner in NYC. And speaking of wine, we did the wine and cheese tasting which was absolutely the highlight of our stay. Our sommelier was both knowledgeable and entertaining - clearly she loved what she does!

We did the spa one day - steam room, sauna, scented showers, and a massage. All high end and such a treat after 4 days of running around being busy tourists. And the outdoor pools are quite nice as well.

There is not much to do nearby if you don't have a car. One day we walked about a 1.5 miles to a small nearby town for lunch, just for a change of pace, and found a casual restaurant where the food was more reasonably priced but still quite good. You can arrange for car service into Montalcino but it was fairly expensive and we were so comfortable that we decided to just stay put and relax.

Overall we had a lovely stay and will remember our time there fondly. Thank you to the staff for taking such good care of us!

Castello de Velona, ​​is very beautiful, the view is spectacular. The place is clean and nice. A special attention is to the amenities, the shampoo, soap and moisturizer of Castello himself are sensational. The best I've ever used.
However, it is not a cozy place, with human warmth, the staff are cold. Not all, but most of them. I saw a manager catching the attention of the staff in front of the guests, I do not think that's ethical. Also to consume wine in the hotel is unfeasible because the prices are out of the standard even for resorts / spa. I do not know if I would stay at this hotel again. The compliment goes to receptionist Elga, very attentive; and for the valet.
