A total gem! The grounds are peaceful and beautiful with stunning views down toward the vineyards and valley. Very spacious and beautifully appointed rooms, 2 fantastic restaurants with excellent service and a charming breakfast terrace to while away the morning. We loved Banfi and look forward to returning someday!

OK, we just returned from Castello Banfi - Il Borgo. This was one of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The service and all accommodations were impeccable. The room, which was a huge suite, was decorated beautifully. I could have enjoyed the breakfast area for hours and hours. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking. We ended up eating at the... More

Five star service from start to finish! Beautifully located in the heart of Tuscany, surrounded by miles and miles of vineyards. Dinner at Sala dei Grappoli was an extraordinary experience never to be forgotten!

We stayed at the castle for 2 nights while vacationing in Italy, and loved every second. It's quite the drive from Florence, but totally worth it if you are wanting the complete Tuscany experience. We were upgraded to the Classic Suite and felt like we were in a Tuscan Italian Villa....absolutely excellent in every way. The room had a huge... More

I attended the cooking course under he guidance of chef Domanique assisted by chef Roberto. I had my initial reservations but these were short lived. This was a chance to pick the brain of a man who had dedicated his life to perfecting his art. Domanique was a great teacher. Funny but never flippant, warm but never over familiar, knowledgable...

My wife and I have stayed at fine hotels and resorts all over the world and Castello Banfi is truly one of the best we have experienced. From check in to check out we enjoyed every aspect of the experience. It is very well located, close to Montalcino. Our suite was wonderful with a beautiful view of the vineyards. Do... More

My wife and I recently spent some time in Tuscany and had the pleasure of staying at Castello Banfi for three nights. While the wine shop and restaurant are open to the public the hotel is kept private by a locking gate. There are only fourteen rooms, so the staff knows your name within a day, and you feel as...

We spent 3 days at Il Borgo recently. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed. Champagne was chilling in our room upon arrival. All of our needs were anticipated and the room had plush bathrobes, slippers, a refrig stocked with water, juice, etc., wonderful products such as body lotion, shampoo and the like to meet personal needs. The grounds are... More

So lovely in every way; from the hand-painted tiles in the shower, to the extraordinary gardens, vineyards and views, to the delicious food and (of course) wine. There was a decent pool too where you can actually swim
