Il Castello di Velona is a marvellous historical accommodation from the X century.
It is located on the top of a hill which allows you to enjoy a panoramic view on the great Val d’Orcia.
The Castle is 2 km far from the beautiful Abbey of Sant’Antimo and 30 minutes far from Siena by car.
The rooms are large and furnished with elegance and sophistication. Each one is a unique gem of the accommodation, with their antique furnitures, embroider fabrics and the fireplace. Every room has its own marble private bath, TV and air conditioning.
After the castle was renovated a new wing on the palace has been available for the guests. The rooms in this wing have a patio and a bath with hot tub.
Moreover, the castle has a free wellness centre (1500m²) with a sauna, outdoor and indoor pools and turkish bath. If asked, the staff will be delighted to serve you with special beauty treatments.
At the restaurant, the menu proposes the best recipes of tuscan regional cuisine, accompanied with high quality locally produced wines, such as the Rosso or the Brunello di Montalcino. Don’t forget to taste the special olive oil, absolute pride of this land.
Both the gastronomic restaurant “Settimo Senso” both the Velona Lounge Bar – where you can sip your favourite drinks – have a panoramic terrace.
