A five-star suite stay at a luxurious boutique castle hotel on a Tuscan hillside, including breakfast, spa access and perks


Castello di Velona is a luxury hotel set in a restored 10th-century castle in the hills of Tuscany. Here in the heart of the UNESCO-listed Val d’Orcia region, history has been given a high-end makeover, with the resulting accommodation as gorgeous inside as it is dreamy outside.

Each room and suite has an elegant design with clean white or cream walls and pops of color, twin or king-size beds, separate seating and en-suite bathrooms. Traditionally Tuscan in style, the spacious Castle suites are in the original building, while the fantastically roomy Unesco View Junior suites offer contemporary comfort and relaxation. These suites overlook the beautiful Val d'Orcia valley on the west side and have private patios with sunset views.

Enjoy Tuscan recipes with the best of Italy’s regional cuisine here. Il Brunello serves regional specialities in a rustic atmosphere in the historic part of the castle, while the modern Settimo Senso offers romantic views in the new wing. Oenophiles will also be in seventh heaven – the quality wine list comprises delightful tipples produced in the hotel’s own 32-hectare winery.  There’s the Dolce Vita Pool Restaurant for refreshing daytime drinks, plus barbecue dishes, pizza and other dishes.


For a fabulous wellness experience, head to the spa, built around the mineral hot springs discovered during the castle’s renovation. There are two indoor and two outdoor pools (all filled with mineral water), a Jacuzzi, steam bath and a sauna. Next step, treat yourself to one of the many spa treatments on offer – choose from facials, massages and scrubs.


Food and culture have a happy marriage in Tuscany, and the hotel is well-located for enjoying both, set in a restored 10th-century castle on a hill overlooking Val d’Orcia in Montalcino, Italy. Sant’Antimo Abbey is four kilometers from the property, and Montalcino is a 20-minute drive away.

Famed for its Brunello di Montalcino wine, the town has a 14th-century fortress and cathedral, a museum and a historic center with many medieval buildings. Siena, a city known for its UNESCO-listed historic centre, delectable cuisine, art, museums and medieval cityscape is a 30-minute drive from here. Pisa Airport is around 200 kilometers away.
