And I mean UNBELIEVABLE. I giggle at times when visiting Banfi, because it seems almost cliche'! So cliche' you don't think this kind of place REALLY exists, but IT DOES! This is the FIGURE HEAD property for the Banfi brand, so it is marketed mostly to Americans, but Italian through and through. When you arrive, you won't believe your eyes....

We stayed at Banfi for 3 nights in September while on our honeymoon. Service was excellent, the grounds are very well kept. The hotel is on a hill surrounded by vineyards, amazing view. Daily breakfast had fresh pastries, fruit, eggs made to your taste and of course coffee. The room had complementary wine selection from Banfi winery, each evening complementary...

It's hard to know where to begin. We had 3 wonderful nights here in a fabulous suite. The meals (especially the 5 course dinner with wines) were incredible and it was made even more special by the amazing staff. If that wasn't enough, the location was great for exploring the area. We found some great (reasonable) wines which we sent...

This property is amazing and so romantic. We stayed here two nights and it wasn't enough. They immediately upgraded us when we got here and I loved our room and bathroom....both HUGE and filled with so much charm and character. Definitely take some time to walk around the property as everywhere you go is just gorgeous and you'll find little...

OMG! Wow! Tuscany has long been on my bucket list, so when my husband surprised me by telling me to plan a trip there for my birthday, I selected Castello Banfi from reading all the wonderful trip advisor reviews. We were bowled over by the beauty of the region while traveling by car to get to the estate. Upon driving...

Our three night stay at this beautiful castle hotel was the highlight of our two week trip to Umbria and Tuscany. We stayed in room #15 and it could not have been lovelier, with a bedroom, spacious living room and two full bathrooms. The staff is wonderful - from the concierge, to the hotel director, to the staff in the...

Good location for day trips to Siena, Piensa, etc...Service and rooms were excellent. Ate in the on site restaurant twice and loved it. Lots of complementary wine to drink in the minibar and library.
