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

Castello Banfi is perhaps the best getaway my wife and I have ever had. This place has it all. Their attention to detail is beyond words and the place exudes class and quality. They have several package deals throughout the year and we could not have been here at a more perfect time. Our suite was huge! Our bathroom was... More

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
