It was our second time at Castello Banfi, and was as perfect as the first one. I agree with other comments about the fact it is hard to describe how this hotel is so wonderful. It definitely worth the price. Should be quoted as a 6 stars resort. We booked the 3 nights "Your Tuscan Retreat", including one free dinner... More

This is a place that should be on your bucket list. I have been to many five star properties, but Castello Banfi beats them all, hands down, on service, food, and quality. We booked a package which included breakfast each day, a five-course wine tasting dinner, and a ccoking class. Upon arrival you are offered a glass of the estate... More

This was the most luxurious place I have ever stayed. 3 days of bliss: the service was top notch, the amenities were endless, the rooms were gorgeous, the food was spectacular, and the views and scenery was dreamy. My boyfriend and I stayed for a romantic and peaceful 3 nights and we were both thrilled. It is perfect for couples... More

I stumbled upon this place when researching Tuscany for our recent trip to Italy. I am so glad I did because it was one of the best travel experiences my husband and I have ever had and was the highlight of our fantastic trip to Italy. We had to change our itinerary a bit and rent a car to get... More

The magnificent Castello Banfi has 15 beautiful suites, helpful staff, delicious food, exceptional wines and impressive views. We were guests there in July 2014, and felt pampered and rested. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Children were welcome. We loved every minute!

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
