Venue Location

In Montalcino.

Reception Venue description

A luxury Castle in the heart of Tuscan Renaissance: an open window on the landscape of history.

An 11th-century fortress and once the villa of famous Sienese families, the Castello is today an exclusive relais where history beautifully blends with art, viniculture and gastronomy.


Castello di Velona offers the perfect setting for memorable events. For a fairy-tale wedding, we can help you to arrange all the details of your celebration, including organizing the catering, floral arrangements, and entertainment during and after the meal.


Castello di Velona is also an idyllic setting for a honeymoon, or to celebrate anniversaries with the splendid backdrop of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The panoramic terrace overlooking the peaceful Val d' Orcia, the gardens and the spacious courtyard, combined with the possibility of the exclusive use of the property, offers a stately context for unforgettable moments.

Wedding ceremony

Symbolic ceremonies can take place in the characteristic small piazza at the entrance of the Castle.

Delicious menus are prepared for the wedding banquets by the resident chef.
