Customer reviews


These hotels won the Certificate of Excellence from the world's leading review website, which honours hotels & accommodations that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Your Destination

Tuscany has a timeless familiarity with its iconic Florentine cathedral dome, gently rolling hills dipped in soft morning mist and sculptural cypress alleys. Admire golden wheat fields, silver olive groves and pea-green vineyards marching in sharp terraced rows on hillsides that form a graceful prelude to soul-soaring medieval hilltop villages, mountain ranges and fecund forests in the north, and a garland of bijou islands beaded along the coastal south.

The Etruscans indulged their fondness for a classy send-off with exquisite funerary objects, and the Romans left their usual legacy of monumental sculptures. But it was during the medieval and Renaissance periods that Tuscany really struck gold with painters, sculptors and architects creating world-class masterpieces. Squirrelled away and safeguarded today in churches, museums and galleries all over the region, art in Tuscany is truly unmatched.

Tuscany is also the gourmet destination for foodies, where locals spend an inordinate amount of time thinking, talking and consuming food and wine. Sourced locally - Tuscans share an enormous pride in the quality of their produce and culinary tradition.

So add car hire and enjoy!

Castello di Velona Resort 5*

Standing above the old Via Clodia, which connected southern Etruria to Rome, this castle hotel was built as a medieval fortress in the 11th century.

The watchtower remains intact from the 12th century, as a reminder of the old rivalry between Siena and Florence, and the rear part of the castle is from the late medieval period.

Every space within this historic hotel has been designed with the sun in mind and enjoying its warm rise, shine and setting throughout the day. 

Head to the entrance from the North Tower or to the breakfast terrace to the east to catch your glimpse - or feel its heat from the spa zone or swimming pools. At the end of the day, the panoramic restaurant terrace, and the bedrooms to the west host the most perfect and wonderful sunsets, which can be admired by all guests.

In one of Tuscany’s most famous wine regions, just outside Montalcino, this renovated castle perches high above some of the area’s best Brunello vineyards and the exquisite Franciscan abbey of Sant’ Antimo. The hotel's wellness facilities are particularly good, encompassing natural thermal baths and an excellent spa.

At sunset, the panorama is unique, a natural backdrop for romantic dinners and special events.

The Chefs in each of the hotel's dining facilities, propose a sensory journey through dishes that are sophisticated and inspired by Tuscan culinary traditions - each dish being expertly and creatively crafted to re-interpret the bold flavours of this land.

Pair your food with fine local wines such as the Rosso di Montalcino or Brunello di Montalcino - these are produced by the Castello di Velona estate on its 5 hectares of vineyards, under its own name.
