Hotel in Siena, Tuscany - Hotel Castello di Velona

Castello Di Velona



A luxury Castle Hotel In Tuscany. 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.

Rooms and Suites

Looking onto the unforgettable Val d’Orcia sunsets and the estate’s vineyards, the 46 bedrooms and suites of Castello di Velona Resort, Thermal SPA & Winery, divided into two types, Castle and Sunset, are luxurious settings dedicated to wellness, nature, colours and thehistory of Tuscan tradition.


Located in the new wing of the Castle, the elegant gourmet Restaurant Settimo Senso can accommodate up to 120 diners. It has a west-pointing panoramic terrace offering a great view of the Val d’Orcia. At sunset the panorama is unique, a natural backdrop for romantic dinners and special events.

The Chef proposes a sensory journey through dishes that are sophisticated but inspired by Tuscan culinary traditions, expertly and creatively re-interpreting the old flavours of this land. Each dish is accompanied by fine wines, in particular the Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello di Montalcino produced by the Castello di Velona estate on its 5 hectares of vineyards, under its own name.

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, a rich buffet of sweet and savoury delicacies, all “homemade”. Throughout the day guests may use the old-fashioned Lounge to eat quick snacks as well as delicious lunchtime dishes, from our à la carte menu, or relax reading a book, sample the imaginative cocktails prepared by our barman and, after dinner, sip fine liqueurs beneath the stars.

The Spa at Castello di Velona offers a complete fusion between the well-being of the treatments, the natural elements, the landscape, the products of nature, the silence and the stunning scenery of the Val d’Orcia.

The hotel offers  an amazing infinity pool, boasting a unique view of the Val d’Orcia, a Unesco world heritage site. The five treatment cabins, two Turkish baths, sauna and ‘emotional showers’, just as all the treatments on offer, from body and face massages to scrubs and packs, are designed to offer sensory delights and total relaxation. Grapes and olive oil, local products, and other natural products, are used to give guests the body sensation of a perfect union between the territory, water and man
