Our Chef Bacciottini is Best Italian Young Chef of 2017



An unrepeatable experience of taste.

With the aromas of the herbs and spices and typical colours of the tuscan countryside, the vineyards and olive groves surrounding the castle, the hotel’s wine and food offer fully satisfies the body and soul, both in the rustic Il Brunello in the historical part of the castle, and in the modern setting of the Settimo Senso Restaurant, created in the new wing.

The rooms inside look onto the val d’orcia thanks to the panoramic terraces of the Castle’s two restaurants, one to the east, exposed to the first rays of the sun, the other to the west, pointing towards the sunset.

Here guests experience complete sensory emotions, immersed in the silence and romance of the landscape, sampling fine wines and the olive oil produced by the castle estate, and tasting the specialities of regional tuscan and mediterranean italian cuisine, a blend of creativity in the kitchen and respect for the seasons and for genuine ingredients.

The chef also accepts special requests, preparing the menu directly with the guest, in order to create a unique gourmet experience.

Brunello di Montalcino, produced in the 5 hectares of vineyards on the estate, is top of the wine list, to be tasted in the internal cloister, the veritable hub of Velona Castle, enclosed overhead by a glass dome.

There is also the Dolce Vita Pool Restaurant, in the swimming pool and wellness area, where at any time of day it is possible to find a refreshing drink, aperitif, barbecue, pizza and other tasty dishes.

With 11 restaurants (3 inside the Resort and 8 outside) and its own production of Brunello wine and extra virgin olive oil, Castello di Velona is ideal for enjoying the best of Italian food and wine culture.

We are the only Resort in Tuscany with a Dine Around program: our customers have the possibility to use the half-board package also outside the Resort in the 8 partner restaurants, of which two are Michelin star rated.
