Castello Banfi and its Borgo bring luxury to a different level. My wife and I with our friends spent 5 magical days at this amazing castle and winery.

The rooms have to be among the best in Europe and the food is multiple star level. It is located on 7000 acres and everywhere you look it is beautiful and pristine.

Room tip: There are only 19 rooms at the hotel. Each room is different as it was designed by a famous designer.

You know that feeling you have when you stay somewhere and it gives you the feeling that you never want to leave? That is exactly how we felt. It is really hard to put in words our time there other than it was spectacular. Every aspect of our stay was. From the transfers to other places, quality and comfort of the rooms, the amazing views from every part of the property, the impeccable service and the wide variety of options that they can provide for you are top notch. The food at the restaurants was some of the best we had on our entire trip and the wine was even better. We took a cooking class that one of their chefs provided (Chef Samuele) and it was an incredible experience from an incredible chef and teacher. If we could have stayed longer we definitely would have. Top notch.

Stayed in the Excelsior suite...beautiful mini -Tuscan Villa...This place is so wonderful, i really don't know where to begin...the grounds are absolutely beautiful..had dinner every night at La Sala di Grappoli..terrific restaurant .The chef is wonderful, as is the wine selection, and the staff . The people that work at the Grappoli are professional without being stuffy. Antonella and Eduardo made our dinners something special every evening..The pool is perfect and in a great location. The concierge staff can, and is more than willing to help with your every need. if you want to really experience Tuscany at it's finest , stay here.

Room tip: Their all great

From the first moment of arrival everything was impeccable. Complimentary beverages upon check in, followed by a fantastic room. Unfortunately the lunch restaurant was full, however the room service is incredible, best Salad Caprese of our trip to Italy, and best pizza of our stay in Italy.

The staff are very forthcoming, giving a tour of the property and the grounds, followed by a tour of the Banfi winery. They even opened up the heated pool in the rain so we could watch the thunderstorms roll around the Tuscan hills.
The wine tasting was well presented, with good selection of cheeses and ham. The breakfast is very fresh, with the best egg selection including omelette of the day.

100/100 - thank you for a perfect stay!

We stayed for the first 3 days of our honeymoon. You drive up the private road on the Banfi wine property to find the castle ahead of you. All rooms are in the Borgo (little village attached to the Castle). We had a stunning suite (with 2 bathrooms, and a living room). Breakfast each day on a little patio overlooking the vineyards, there's a pool, small museum, 2 restaurants and the Enoteca. We tried everything; wine-tasting, cookery class, the pool, both restaurants - all wonderful. The staff are amazing. Marguerita was so helpful in helping with a complex car hire change, Valeria welcomed us and showed us the property and Samuele was our Chef for the cooking class. Sam is great - you must do the cooking class.
