My wife and I spent three magical days and nights at Castello Banfi Il Borgo. The staff are very attentive (especially at breakfast) and the grounds are beautiful. We had a suite that had gorgeous views looking down into the vineyards. Being an active couple, we appreciated the bike trails around the property which we were able to go for... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a suite overlooking the rose garden. The property is spectacularly located on a hill. The grounds are enormous and include a full working winery. We dined at the more formal restaurant which was excellent. They have a range of activities including biking, wine tasting, hot air ballooning and local tours. Breakfast is served in a... More

My wife and I loved our brief stay at the Banfi. The room was amazing and the service was above and beyond. We had a wonderful dinner in their restaurant and everything was perfect! I recommend trying the food and wine pairing one night for dinner. We definitely will be back next visit.

Greatly enjoyed 3 nights at Il Borgo (and the restaurant, see separate review). Overall, it really lived up to the "hype". If I was to compare it to other high-end European rural hotels, the views are about as good as you could get, the room appointments were spotless, the breakfasts were delicious, the service was universally good, and the atmosphere...

We landed at FCO, rented our car and headed towards Montalcino. We had reservations at Castello Banfi Il Borgo. We arrived just as the winery tour was leaving, so they took our luggage and sent us off on the wine tour. The winery is American owned and exports only to America, designed for American tastes. Some good wines, some not... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castello Banfi last week and it was absolutely awesome. The restored Castle has only 14 rooms, so the service is impeccable. We were met with a glass of wine and given a tour of the property while our luggage was taken to our room. The estate is private and secluded, but centrally located.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights on our way to Florence. We were able to experience both on site restaurants, (I will review them separately), a wine and cheese tasting and the cooking school.

This was the most decadent, luxurious, romantic gorgeous property I have ever stayed at, and I've been fortunate to stay at many beautiful properties.

We spent 1 night at Banfi last week after leaving Rome and before heading to Sienna. After the crowds of Rome, this was a wonderful and welcome retreat. It was still early in the season, so the property was not very crowded. Even so, we received first-class service. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite, and enjoyed a terrific dinner... More
