One of the most beautiful places I've ever been. The views on the grounds are breathtaking and the staff is beyond helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated and have everything you could ever need. The food is delicious and the dining experiences are all wonderful.

Stayed at Banfi with my wife on our honeymoon and the Castello and surrounding vineyards is one of the most serene places I've ever been. The grounds are lovely, the service is impeccable, and the food/wine is delicious. The rolling hills and the peaceful setting is simply breathtaking. We can't wait to return!

The breathtaking Tuscan scenery with roads of impeccably manicured vineyards, rolling hills and hilltop medieval villages make this place the most romantic place on earth!
