Boasting history dating back eight centuries, world-class wine and luxurious accommodation, the Castello Banfi/Il Borgo is a gourmand’s paradise.

Perched proudly on a hilltop in the Tuscan countryside, the 13th-century Castello Banfi -Il Borgo is a luxury heritage hotel and acclaimed winery rolled into one. With lip-smacking Italian cuisine across two restaurants, a never-ending programme of wine tastings tours, and even its own onsite museum where you can learn all about the ancient history of winemaking, this is luxurious holiday bliss at its characterful best.

Room Types

All rooms

Castello Banfi’s rooms and suites are elegant and traditional, with a stylish design courtesy of leading architect Federico Forquet. The furnishings are carved from rich dark wood, with bookcases and writing desks adding an air of sophistication; period features, like wood-beamed ceilings and shutters, are a reminder of the property’s heritage status. The accommodations themselves are pleasantly gathered around a unique internal garden, where you can enjoy a peaceful walk along the pergola as if strolling through your own private castle.

    Hotel Location

    Description, Services & Facilities

    Castello Banfi’s setting is picture-postcard Tuscany, with a grand approach lined by towering cypress trees, and acres of vineyards rolling down from the Castello’s prime hilltop position. Wine is very much the star attraction here – on top of the stunning ancient architecture, gourmet food and world-class interior design - with no end of opportunities to taste the estate’s produce in the subterranean enoteca, with grappa, olive oil, local prosciutto and goat’s cheese on the menu too. The gastronomic adventures continue in the two superb restaurants, La Taverna and La Sala dei Grappoli, and if the tastings have piqued your interest, you can brush up on your viticulture history at the onsite Museum of Bottle and Glass. At the end of all that indulgence, there’s no better place to retreat to than either your luxurious guestroom - designed by an acclaimed Italian architect - or the sun terrace and pool, which overlooks the rolling hills and fields of vines which surround the property.
