Every minute spent on this beautiful property was thoroughly enjoyable. The whole property is immaculate and exudes luxury but in an understated Tuscan way and the staff were all thoughtful and friendly. From eating lunch on the patio to a tasting menu dinner at the restaurant all was first rate! We especially hiking around the vineyards and very much enjoyed... More

My family of four stayed in a suite for a few days last week and we couldn't have been happier. The hotel is beautiful and the property surrounding it is absolutely breathtaking. The decor was very Tuscan, and the bathroom was unbelievably huge -- the same size as the living room area! My kids loved the game room, which was... More

Castello Banfi was an amazing place. From the time you see the castle on a hilltop from miles away, until you experience the luxury and beauty of the winery and Enoteca. This is a special place with beautiful rooms and wonderful food, not to mention the large and beautiful Enoteca with great wines and amazing hand made pottery. The service... More

It is honestly surprising to me how much effort it took to find out about Castello Banfi. This should be at the top of every European hotels list and was easily the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Staff - Couldn't find a more friendly, supportive staff offering to help with absolutely anything you need. The best staff in... More

We recently stayed at Castello Banfi for 6 nights. I cannot say enough about how great of any experience we had. I travel a lot for work and have high expectations for high end hotels. Banfi exceeded those, and then some. A few highlights: The staff throughout the property is great. Very friendly and concerned about helping the guest. Front... More

This was our first time visiting southern Tuscany, and what a way to do it. The service at this hotel was exceptional. The concierge was incredibly helpful and the staff at large was just over the top friendly. As I'm sure you've read in many of the other reviews, Banfi has a tremendously beautiful property, and the views afforded to... More

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

We spent a good part of a two week holiday in Tuscany. 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
