The Castello Banfi Il Borgo is actually about 20 min from Montalcino in a place called Poggio alle Mura. One of the best hotels I have stayed ever! Perfect in every way! The location is stunning, right in the middle of the vineyards. It's a boutique hotel with a few rooms and the castle right there. The pool is the...

Easily one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. Impeccably maintained property with bursting with fragrant jasmine and rosemary. The room was cool and decorated with understated luxury. Every meal was exquisite, the wines were delectable. The staff was warm, friendly and helpful. We couldn't get enough of the breathtaking views in a gorgeous location. Wish we could have...

To the wonderful people at Banfi we thank you for an unexpectedly amazing getaway which we will certainly repeat. Specifically, Francesca, Bernadette, Lisa and Julio you made our stay incredible. Julio's 40km bike tour of the region was the highlight of the trip and the Tuscan wines filled the relaxing days. Don't change anything and we will eagerly return.

This property is as refined and beautiful as anyone can imagine. Everything was superb and the staff was very nice and friendly. The location and views are better than any postcard you have seen of the Tuscan countryside. Food and wine were fantastic. I will treasure our stay here forever.

Everything at Castello Banfi Il Borgo was perfect. Greeted by a great team with bubbly at check in, beautiful and spacious rooms and bathrooms, fun wine tasting at the Enoteca (great wines), delicious dinner at Sala dei Grapple and peaceful breakfast with spectacular views. Tour of the winery was very interesting, even though it was off season. I cannot wait...

Recently spent 3 nights at the Castello and we had one of the best vacation stays ever.

In a nutshell, Castello Banfi il Borgo is unquestionably one of the finest and most beautiful places that we have ever had the pleasure to stay at.

Italians call their region Toscanna, while English speakers say it's Tuscany. Whatever name you use, this is truly a hidden gem that combines extraordinary service, delicious food, and amazing views. We used this special hotel as a way to survive jet lag and prepare for a seven week holiday. From our window we watched grapes being harvested and the ever...

My wife and I recently stayed 5 nights at Castello Banfi and had a wonderful time. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We did not opt for a mountain view but next time I will. We did the cooking class with Chef Dominico- there were 8 guests in the class which made it great fun. Dominico involved all of us...

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...
