This incredible hotel is truly outstanding! It is a castle with everything you dream an Italian castle should be. It's grounds are so perfectly kept and the rooms are elegant and appropriate for it's castle status. It has a feeling of a private villa with a 5 star restaurant and it's own wonderful winery. And the view is absolutely phenomenal.... More

Castello Banfi is a must do for couples in Tuscany. You are away but not far from any towns and attractions. Staying here is like renting an apartment for a few days - nothing is missing. Everything is so well appointed, simple but gorgeous. Property has two wonderful restaurants (thanks Domenico!) and grounds to walk or bike. Given it's 7k+... More

We spent two nights in July 2016 in the village hotel of Castello Banfi Il Borgo to recapture the magic of our honeymoon there 8 years before. And we were not disappointed. The breathtaking beauty of the medieval castle is mirrored in the authentic aspect of the whole site and in the care taken in every way to ensure that... More

We stayed here on a recent anniversary trip and it was the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. The service was outstanding and the hotel beautifully restored. The property used to be a small town that was renovated. There are only a small amount of rooms but they are outstanding. The property has a pool with great views. It... More

On a vineyard, with two excellent restaurants, beautiful views of Tuscany, interesting museum, a very nice room, all on a site of an 800 year old castle - overall, it was an incredible few days. A small hotel with only 15 rooms (I believe), very quiet. Our room (one of two, overlooking the rose garden where you could sit with... More

We spent 4 nights for our honeymoon and I must say they were memorable. The rooms are just incredible. You must try the 4 course dinner. We loved the pool and the best part was although the hotel was completely booked, we felt as if we had it for ourselves. We also booked a photoshoot which we completely recommend because... More

Castello Banfi and its Borgo bring luxury to a different level. My wife and I with our friends spent 5 magical days at this amazing castle and winery. The rooms have to be among the best in Europe and the food is multiple star level. It is located on 7000 acres and everywhere you look it is beautiful and pristine.
