The UNESCO world heritage site offers its guests unique sensory emotions:

“When there a thread of a distant time remains that leads us from the distant past to the modern day, which means we have taken up our inheritance and are shaping it for the future. It is this belief that has guided our actions during the three years spent renovating and extending the residence. Looking at the Castle’s position from above, we became aware of its North/South alignment. We designed every space in relation to the position of the sun, in order to give guests the possibility of appreciating every inch of this place through the changes in light during the day”

The water spa water that gushes from Monte Amiata is the dominant natural element of Oli SPA, a structure covering 1,500 m2 and part of the Castello di Velona Resort, Thermal SPA & Winery.  It is Tuscany’s hottest spa water and it penetrates this oasis of relaxation, creating a perfect mix of nature and wellness.

The perfection of the travertine marble is the dominant element of the wellness area. The use of this prestigious material, a Tuscan tradition, is also a reference to the mineral contained in the spa waters, which spurt forth in the two outdoor swimming pools and in the two indoor pools with Jacuzzi, all boasting a fine view of the Val d’Orcia, a Unesco world heritage site.

The five treatment cabins, two Turkish baths, sauna and ‘emotional showers’, and all the treatments on offer, from the body and face massages to the scrubs and packs, are designed to offer sensory delights.

Oli Spa offers couples the possibility of sharing in a private cabin a moment of relaxation and wellbeing, as well as the possibility of staying in one of the Hotel’s Spa Suites, where spa water is supplied directly to the tubs in the bedrooms, also fitted with private cabins for treatments enjoyed in the privacy of one’s own room.
