Castello Banfi - Il Borgo
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.
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.
