"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!"

"My wife and I stayed here a few weeks ago with our son and his wife. We knew this was a 5 star hotel but our experience far exceeded these expectations. Every aspect of our experience was memorable. The views from the hill top setting are spectacular. You can experience both the tuscan sunrise and sunset from the grounds and various outdoor terraces. The thermal spring which feeds the pools and spa are a wonderful interlude to a day of wine tasting and touring or just to spend a relaxing peaceful day. All The staff are wonderful especially Fabio who treats you as family. The food experience is exceptional as well and their wines and olive oil are superb! We also appreciated the owner who is there daily interacting with quests. Hands down one of our all time best places to stay. We can't wait to return. Grazie mille!! Jeff and Trudy Grillo"

"The experience was as close to perfect as you can get. The pictures cannot do justice to the panorama of views you get from every spot of the property. The thermal pools are an amazing experience as well. We have been to italy many times and will return here. The baked goods were among the best we have tasted anywhere in Europe. The one hope we have is that the gourmet restaurant at the property improves a bit in service and experience for the price as we always like to have some of our dinners at the property we are staying."
