Castello di Velona - LUXURY HOTEL IN TUSCANY

A stunning castle, with thermal spa, in the heart of the Tuscan hills

Set high on a hilltop in the hills of Siena, Castello di Velona Hotel was once an 11th-century fortress which fell into ruins and has been beautifully restored to produce a magnificent hotel. Overlooking the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO heritage site, it is in a prime position to enjoy the best of Tuscany’s food, wine and wonderful countryside views.

With its magical setting, the views from Castello di Velona Hotel’s rooms are breath-taking. The antique-filled Castle rooms and suites have oak-beams, vaulted roofs, cotto floors and decorative fireplaces. The more contemporary Sunset spa rooms have private patios to enjoy the region’s spectacular sunsets and bathtubs fed by the thermal waters of the resort’s natural mineral hot springs.

Take a walk along the Orcia River near Castello di Velona Hotel or a bike ride through the shaded country roads. There are plenty of opportunities to go horse riding through this beautiful countryside or head to the medieval villages of Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, San Quirico d’Orcia or to nearby Siena. Return to relax in the hotel’s spa with its hot springs discovered during the castle’s renovation.
