My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Banfi in the Poggio all'Oro suite and had a fantastic time! This place is truly magical. Our suite was very spacious, with 2 huge bathrooms, 2 sitting rooms and windows that opened onto the rose garden on one side and beautiful countryside on the other. It was super clean, well stocked, comfortable... More

If you could imagine what heaven would be like, I think Castello Banfi would be the closest. 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!

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

We travelled here from some disappointing experiences elsewhere in Italy on this trip what a contrast this was.

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
