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 there but it was more than worth it. The surroundings, the property itself and the story of the owners are all things that fairy tales are made of. Our room (the Fontanelle) was spectacular and the service from all who we came in contact with was welcoming and first rate from the moment we arrived to the moment we (reluctantly) left. This is truly a first class place down to every detail and an experience in itself just to stay there. It is expensive but once you are there, there are many extras including a welcome wine gift, stocked refrigerator with soft drinks and their sparkling wine, evening wine and appetizers in the castle library, an amazing cooked to order breakfast overlooking the vineyards and a tour of their wine making facility that is down the hill from the property. For wine travelers such as ourselves we thought we found paradise. From the moment I left, I was scheming about how to get back and enjoy more time there. See more about our experience at Castello Banfi at www.thewinaut.com.

Room Tip: We loved Fontanelle and from what it looked like there was not a bad room location there. It did look like the rooms further down the hill would have spectacular views.

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!

Room Tip: Room 21 was quiet, convenient and very comfortable.

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 and ancient stone walls that date back to the 12th century. Banfi's accommodations are new, upscale, quiet and inviting. There restaurants offer authentic homemade dishes that I found outstanding and the wine! Every wine is poured from the Banfi's estate. When you get tired of relaxing, you can head over to Montalcino. An historic village with shopping and great restaurants. Then, there always wine tastings throughout the region. Be prepared to use transfers or private cars to get to your locations. You wouldn't regret any time you spend in your on Castle. I promise!

Room Tip: The suites overlooking the garden.

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 and welcoming staff, to the wine and food. They even gave us 3 bottles of wine as a welcome gift and a bottle of olive oil upon our departure. You can expect the absolute best at Castello Banfi, we would definitely come back and recommend it to all of our friends and family.Good value for money well spent!

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 the stunning Tuscan countryside. Went wine tasting in their wine cellar/shop. Visited the glass museum on site.
Excellent taster meal with different wines for different courses.
This gorgeous hotel isn't cheap, but definitely worth every penny for the 10-star experience!
