Tuscany, Italy

Castello di Velona


Set on a hill a short drive from Montalcino, Italy, this 10th-century restored castle is the perfect backdrop for a ‘fairytale’ destination wedding in the heart of Tuscany. Get ready for the royal treatment as you celebrate your love in this perfect setting! From the top of the hillside, enjoy 360 degree views of one of the most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage sites. Stop a moment and catch your breath.

You’ll enjoy sleeping in a castle thats over a thousand years old while looking out on the rolling Tuscan vineyards surrounding the property. Choose either a room or suite with antique furniture and paintings, or a spa room with a contemporary touch, complete with thermal waters flowing directly into your bathtub. Spectacular Italian subsets will take your breath away as you look out across the privacy of your own personal garden. Getting inspired?

Before your castle wedding, rejuvenate both the body and sold by swimming in one of 5 indoor and outdoor pools filled with hot thermal water rising from the springs of a dormant Volcano. You and your bridal party will be pampered in the 1500 square meter spa, a true heavenly experience.

For destination weddings up to 120 guests, you can enjoy your castle wedding reception on the restaurant terrace overlooking the valley sunset. For a more intimate party, you may wish to  choose the Cloister, a romantic open-air living room enclosed by a spectacular glass ceiling.

Castello di Velona proudly caters to the most discerning wedding couples from around the world, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and honeymooners. If you need additional help planning your celebration, Wedaways Italy based team of event planners are available to help make your celebration a dream come true.
