Stunning location and a great outside restaurant. Elegance and style surround this Borgo, and the service is wonderful. Ask for a visit to the vineyard, wonderful world class wines and great to experience.

Consummate level of service and attention. WIth only 12 rooms each guest is treated as if you were in someone's private home. The rooms are extremely large. Ours (number 14 across from reception) included a small office, dressing area, very large bathroom with shower and tub and a very large bedroom. All amenities are provided and complementary including half bottles... More

Castello Banfi is really an amazing place. We just returned from a 3 night stay and probably should have stayed another 2-3 nights to truly benefit from all the area has to offer. The photos online don't do it justice. The 7,000+ acre property is much greener and more colorful than it shows. 360 degree views all around are magnificent.... More

We are totally in love with this region anyway, having visited many times, but Castello Banfi is as near to perfection as anywhere we have stayed. We chose our room from the website and it didn't disappoint. It was enormous and supremely comfortable with a huge bathroom and extra large shower. The views were spectacular and the serenity profound. The... More

I know, it's all relative, but for me the Castello Banfi is just perfect. Location is just magical, accommodation superb, facilities delightful - the swimming pool being a "must" for the kids, food just lovely and did I tell you about the Brunello? If you love wine, love Tuscany and are looking for that special place I could not recommend... More

We love it here! The environment is beautiful and picturesque. You have so much privacy and the people are lovely. While here we have taken a cooking class, which was incredible. While there is only on restaurant for dinner, the food is some of the best we have had in our lives. We look forward to coming back again and... More

This hotel and property is absolutely magnificent. I can't think of a more picture perfect place for our honeymoon. It was beyond what we ever could have asked for. The service is great and Maddalena at the reception office provided outstanding customer service. Our room was magnificent and the views are everything one could want. Add in the wine, the... More

Went to Banfi as part of my honeymoon. Castello Banfi is a stunning property with beautiful rooms and grounds. The hotel was truly luxurious and the service was amazing. The restaurant in the hotel is beyond delicious and totally worth the cost. The only thing I would recommend is that people rent a car when they visit so they can... More
