When in Tuscany you simply have to make a stop at Montalcino, home of such multifaceted wonders of wine as the great Brunello di Montalcino. We decided to combine a wine tasting with dinner and an overnight stay at famous Castello Banfi. We learned the Castello actually used to be a small village and all the rooms available to guests...

Outstanding small property. 12 rooms. Even the smallest room was grand. Breakfast is included and it top notch. The service is outstanding without having an air of frenzy. The restaurant and the wine tasting is an unbelievable value when one considers the quality of the food as well as tasting 5 or 6 excellent wines. The "enoteca" on property is... More

We loved our stay at here. It is set next to a castle and overlooks vineyards all around. Our suite was exceedingly comfortable. The bed, the sofa bed for our son, and the bathrooms were all perfect. The fact that they also left bags of snacks each day was a bonus. The facilities and the staff are what make this... More

This is hands down one of best places I have ever stayed. The service was amazing. The hotel is an old castle from the 12th century and the property and views are unbeatable. The pool overlooks the rolling hills of Tuscany and the rooms are outstanding. We went for our honeymoon and it could not have been more perfect. Very... More

Top notch place in Montalcino! It was an expensive hotel but definitely worth it! If you want to relax and enjoy your wine and winery experience in Tuscany, I would definitely recommend this place.

Really worth a visit! We visited with friends. Take your camera with and make a few stops along the way to take nice shots! Easy parking with short stroll to the castle. The wine paring seems good. Good wines to buy. Lovely green, lush gardens. Will definitely go again.
