Once upon a time Velona Castle was built as a medieval fortress in the 11th century. In 1997 it was resurrected from the ruins and turned into a luxury relais.
In 2003 it became an exclusive Wine resort and in 2011 after a major expansion work which allowed to find a natural spring of thermal water, it became Castello di Velona Resort, Thermal Spa & Winery.
Visit this wonderful hotel and let the fairy tale begin! With its magical setting, the views from all Castello di Velona rooms and suites are breathtaking.
The rooms and suites (divided into two types: Castle and Sunset) are luxurious settings dedicated to wellness, nature, colors and the history of Tuscan tradition. We stayed in a spacious family suite with two bedrooms, a large living room and two bathrooms. The view from this suite was unforgettable! If you really want to treat yourself, book a Sunset Suite. Offering the ultimate in contemporary luxury, these suites have a large lounge area, an own spa (bath tub with thermal water) and outdoor space with an unrestricted view over Tuscany. Amazing!
The beautiful spa offers a tranquil setting with a whole range of luxurious and relaxing treatments. Sometimes views are to die for and the view from this pool is the living proof. Wow! Can you imagine yourself sitting at the edge of this pool? The thermal pools are naturally heated. Castello di Velona actually features the hottest thermal spring in all Tuscany.
The Castle’s old cloister, now sheltered by a crystal dome, is the beating heart of the hotel. Breakfast is served here in the morning. Start your day off right with this delicious, rich, healthy and homemade breakfast.
For dinner you don’t really have to leave this hotel too. Dine at the gourmet restaurant Settimo Senso or the Velona Lounge for a Tuscan typical cuisine. Both restaurants have panoramic terraces. There is also the Pool Bar, in the swimming pool and wellness area, where at any time of day it is possible to find a refreshing drink, aperitif or light snack.
What an amazing hotel. This is the place we want to go back to!
