History

Castello di Velona Resort Thermal Spa & Winery is a 1000-year-old castle. It is a union between art, nature, and beauty. Velona Castle sits above the Via Clodia that connected southern Etruria and Rome. It was a medieval fortress during the 11th century. The Watchtower is still intact. The late medieval period includes the rear section of the Castle. They transformed the castle into a residential residence during the Renaissance.

Perugia Danti, a famed cosmographer and geographer, created frescoed maps of the Vatican that depict "Velona." The castle was enveloped in darkness for centuries until it was restored from ruins. Podere Castello 1997 Srl bought the property in 2003. They undertook renovations and extensions with Ing. As a result, the Castello di Velona Resort came to life.

Service and Facilities

According to legend, this castle was built on top of a natural hot spring that rises from the underside of the building. It allowed the owners to create a fantastic spa with a large indoor/outdoor pool complex. The outdoor pool faces west, so watch the sunset from the pool's edge as you soak in the warm water. There are also excellent spa facilities with a sauna, steam baths, and thermal pools.
