Castello Banfi: a resort  on the Tuscan hills

Tuscany is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations for Italian and foreign tourists, especially for those who are looking for a relaxing weekend away from city stress or who wish to experience a vacation in touch with nature without giving up on comfort and good food. The ideal way to explore the land of Brunello and Chianti is to look for a resort nestled in the Tuscan hills.       

Tuscan hills and resorts

The Tuscan hills are one of the symbols of this region, not only because the landscape is predominantly hilly, but also because of the synergy created over the centuries between people and land. When one thinks about the Tuscan hills, the first image that comes to mind is not that of uncultivated and wild nature, but that of neat rows of vines, fragrant groves of olive trees, cultivated fields and small villages, in a perfect combination of natural and man-made landscapes. 

And, among the beautiful sceneries of the Tuscan hills are farm holidays and resorts, excellent accommodation facilities that are perfectly integrated into the landscape that can enhance it even more. One of such examples is Castello Banfi Wine Resort, an accommodation facility in the Tuscan hills located in the village of Poggio alle Mura.

Castello Banfi Wine Resort     

Staying at Castello Banfi Wine Resort means experiencing the magic of a castle without giving up on the authenticity of Tuscany: waking up every day in an enchanting medieval village, strolling through vineyards and olive groves, delighting the palate with good wine and traditional food, and enjoying Tuscan hospitality.

The magic of a castle

Castello Banfi Wine Resort is a charming fortress built between the ninth and thirteenth centuries over an ancient Roman villa, in a privileged location between Siena and the Maremma. Tourists looking for a resort on the Tuscan hills cannot fail to admire this imposing and elegant silhouette towering over the green hills and cultivated fields, charming and fascinating like a fairy-tale castle.

And the atmosphere that tourists breathe here is exactly that of a fairy tale, which makes this castle the ideal destination for those looking for a romantic vacation in Tuscany. Castello Banfi Wine Resort offers the possibility to stay in the beautiful Hotel Il Borgo, a refined and exclusive property with wonderful rooms and suites furnished in Tuscan style and equipped with all comforts.

The old cellars of the castle host La Tavernarestaurant, a characteristic restaurant where tourists can breathe an atmosphere of the past and taste the typical dishes of the Tuscan tradition made even more authentic and delicious by the use of fresh and genuine ingredients grown right on the Tuscan hills. 

Below the shadow of the castle one can find the elegant and award winning Restaurant La Sala dei Grappoli where the authenticity of old-fashioned flavours meet the creativity and genius of our Chef, and where tourists can pamper themselves with a truly unique culinary experience.

Many wonderful outdoor activities

Castello Banfi Wine Resort has also an "adventurous" and lively side: there are many sports activities to enjoy while staying at this resort in the Tuscan hills, and they are suitable for everyone. Those who love to be in close contact with nature cannot miss the beautiful horseback rides or mountain bike tours in Val d'Orcia, while those looking for relaxation near the castle can take advantage of the various massages that can be booked at the resort. 

Golf is also one of the activities that can be enjoyed in the area: for our guests, we personally take care of arranging a day or half-day at one of the golf courses in the surrounding area, taking care of the booking and planning, and leaving only the fun to the guests.
