Val d'Orcia - Castello di Velona


Castello di Velona is a luxury hotel built as a medieval fortress in the 11th Century, located among the hills of Siena, in the heart of Val d’Orcia Natural Park, where the Tuscan tradition is defined by history and nature, by art and flavour. This is just like an open window on history’s landscape. Of course Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo are just up the road here. Contact with the beauty of nature makes it a true oasis of peace and happiness. 
Already miss this place. I have to come back here someday...
