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...

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...

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. You feel like you are in some kind of a fairy tale when you are surrounded by a castle and very well taken care of gardens,...

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.

We recently stayed for three nights at Castello Banfi. Upon arriving late in the evening via a private transfer we were warmly greeted by the front desk staff and the bell hop.

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....

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+...
