Through the years, you would turn the pages of a magazine and be mesmerized by the beauty of a castle on a hill surrounded by olive trees, Cyprus and a vineyard. You would be describing the Castello Banfi. Quiet and secluded, you have to pinch yourself when you are standing in courtyard overlooking the far stretched beauty of green hills... More

My fiancé and I just came back from a 3-day stay at Castello Banfi where we experienced a perfect vacation. Everything from the location and rooms (stunning 12th century castle), the view (this is on top of a mountain, serene breath taking view of the rolling hills...just wow), the accomodations (warm and inviting room, the pool was beautiful) the friendly...

Luxury oozes out of this hotel, but in an understated way. Beautiful old refurbished castle, surrounded by their own vineyards. We stayed in a characterful room that was larger than our humble apartment at home, in what must have been the old stables or something. Everything we needed was catered for. Very relaxing sipping sparkling wine by the pool, overlooking... More

I was there for a few days in June and liked it very much. The scenery around is beautiful, food very good, service equally so. Rooms are outstanding. The place is not cheap but a fair value for what you get.

What a charming bit of Tuscany Castello Banfi is. An impeccable property, from the staff, to the winery, to the dining, and especially the rooms. Expect the best and you will not be disappointed. Sitting at the pool, you hear the woodpeckers chattering, you smell the rosemary, see the birds grabbing a drink from the pool as they skim by,... More

Castello Banfi is a beautifully kept, luxurious castle in the Tuscan hills, with wonderful rooms, beautifully views, amazing food and, of course, fabulous wines from their own vineyards. The staff are all extremely helpful and we felt super spoilt from the moment we arrived till the time we left - a once-in-a-lifetime break for us and we loved every minute... More

The room was incredible and worth the drive from Rome. The quality of the food and needless to say the wine was first class. You can't go wrong with a Sangiovese wines, chardonnay's were all incredible. We had hoped to extend our stay for an extra day to enjoy the calm serenity of the amazing historic castle venue. Worth a... More

We recently spent three nights at Castello Banfi and had a wonderful experience at this amazing property.

We had looked at this hotel on line before a trip to Tuscany and discounted it since it was just so expensive. However, one lunchtime we found ourselves in the wine shop enjoying some tastings, chatting to the staff and soaking up the amazing views and enjoyed ourselves so much we thought, what the hell, went on the ipad using...

... and a cure for whatever ails you (and even if nothing does). We spent a delightlful several days at Banfi, arriving on the day that the hotel opened for the season -- although we never would have known that if we had not been told beforehand. It was running like a Swiss watch ... if the watch was placed... More
