To Die For!!!!
Castillo Di Velona AKA the dreamiest most perfect honeymoon experience I could ever have dreamt of having. This groundbreaking location made my husband and i's honeymoon experience something we will never forget. First of all: this castle... is go die for. It's on the tippy top of a mountain in wine country. It's small and not extremely packed or touristy (so we considered it our GEM) the treatment of the staff was absolutely wonderful Francesco (in charge of pool snd spa) was the best, the thermal spa: sweet lord, that warm natural pool with the VIEW. They have a downstairs spa which is free-- absolutely groundbreaking. The rooms were huge! You feel like the castle is to yourself, to die for! With THE VIEW! Food was so amazing you don't have to drive anywhere.
To end this especially long review. The owner of this majestic place hosted our wine tasting experience... yes the owner because it was our honeymoon. We left purchasing a wonderful 2010 vintage. I cannot stress how much I enjoyed my experience here. I enjoyed every single second. It was worth Every. Single. Penny. (it was the greatest two days of my life)
