This property is so amazing you can't adequately express it in words. It is one of those places so good you don't want to tell too many people about, lest it be booked up when you want to be there. We are already thinking about how soon we can return. Note, as someone commented, the location is remote. That is... More

Since our intention was to avoid the more touristy parts of Tuscany, Castello Banfi near Montalcino was our choice after extensive research into the area. This was easily the highlight of our already incredible holiday. I rarely ever say this, but if I could give 6 stars, I... More

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!
