Castello Banfi il Borgo - Tuscany, Italy

About this Chic Retreat

Castello Banfi il Borgo is a small luxury hotel on the Mariani family's award-winning vineyard and winery near Montalcino in the Brunello region of Tuscany. Set on a 7,100 acre estate, the former workers' quarters attached to the castle have been stylishly adorned with classic Tuscan furniture, fabrics and finery, wonderfully-appointed against the original features of terracotta floors, arches and wood-beamed ceilings. Outside, guests can enjoy a glass of Banfi's finest wine by the outdoor pool, overlooking the vineyards and for dinner, visit the estates restaurants, La Taverna, located in the vaulted cellars which serves delicious traditional Tuscan cuisines alongside, of course, a superb wine list. In addition, wines and regional produce can be enjoyed in the on-site Enoteca-Wine Bar.

To further indulge, take a luxurious in-room ayurveda massage incorporating the nutrient-rich Sangiovese grapes used in the estates wine-production, or visit one of the nearby luxury spas. The historical castle itself hosts a museum and there are plenty of historical and cultural sites in the nearby area for those who want to learn more about this fertile region. The expert concierge can arrange anything, from visits to local towns and vineyards to cycling, shopping trips and cookery classes, great for a romantic weekend or a family tour of Tuscany.

Accommodation

There are 14 individually-decorated rooms & suites at Castello Banfi il Borgo, designed by renowned Italian stylist, Federico Forquet and the Mariani family, in a chic, traditional Tuscan style which fits well with the original features of these 18th-century buildings. All rooms have king-size beds some of which can be separated into twins, all fitted with luxurious bed linens, cashmere bed covers and goose down pillows. In addition, the 5 suites have queen-size sofa beds in the living rooms. The en-suite bathrooms have large rainshowers while some also have bathtubs, heated towels rails, luxurious bath products made from the estate's Sangiovese grapes, towels, bathrobes, slippers & professional hairdryers.

Activities

Tuscany is famous for its food and wine, and guests can enjoy cookery classes and wine-tastings to further discover the flavours of the region. Visit the surrounding vineyards by bike or on a wine tour, and enjoy a trip around Banfi's own cellars and vineyard which produces some of the Italy's finest wines, while the castle's museum of wine and glass explores the history of this superb estate. Further afield, the concierge can arrange excursions to other vineyards and wineries, as well as tours of the nearby hill-top towns, shopping trips, limousine and other rental services, or for real car enthusiasts, Ferrari rentals. Golf enthusiasts can have a tailor-made golf itinerary drawn up, to make sure they get the most out of the regions' courses, with the nearest just over an hour's drive away. Banfi il Borgo also has a small fitness area with Technogym equipment.
