Driving to Banfi is like driving into a fairy tale. The setting is gorgeous, the service is incredibly attentive, and the food was the best we had in Italy. We had a beautiful room with a spectacular view, so comfortable we didn't want to leave. We almost spent the time lazing around from breakfast to lunch to tea to dinner,... More

Castello Banfi - Il Borgo For over 770 euros (about $1,000.00 US) PER NIGHT, we expect a property to want to be sure every ascept of the guests stay meets their expectations. At Banfi the inconsistentcy was extremely surprising considering the enormous price per night. First the pros: The grounds are stunning. The 5 course dinner is exceptional. The bedroom... More

We travelled here from some disappointing experiences elsewhere in Italy on this trip what a contrast this was. The place is simply stunning as you drive up to it and the check in and treatment on arrival was very slick and efficient while being informal. The bedroom we had was a suite and it was very very comfortable with a... More

I couldn’t believe that Banfi exceeded my sky-high expectations for this property. Every vista is beautiful, each staff member was professional and attentive, and no detail was too small for their attention. We stayed for 3 nights as part of the “Tuscan Retreat” package. We were in the “Double Room Reserva” category, but even that room was a huge suite... More

This place was everything we were hoping for. Great service, wonderful views and fab food. The wine of course was wonderful (and Lisa in the wine shop was amazingly helpful) and we got an upgrade to their top suite which was huge and v comfortable. The pool was cold, but a great place to hang out. Lots of cute places... More

The idea was to visit the Brunello di Montalcino world and Castello Banfi is the Heart of Brunello! Superb rooms and excellent restaurant. Free visit to the winery and if you buy more than €500 of wines they delivery free of charge! I did it. This is the real one!! Do it

It was our second time at Castello Banfi, and was as perfect as the first one. I agree with other comments about the fact it is hard to describe how this hotel is so wonderful. It definitely worth the price. Should be quoted as a 6 stars resort. We booked the 3 nights "Your Tuscan Retreat", including one free dinner... More
