Owned by Banfi Vinters, America's leading wine importer, Castello Banfi - Il Borgo is a peaceful and stunning spot from which to take in all that the Val d'Orcia has to offer. Set amid 7,100 undulating acres of vineyards and olive groves right outside the village of Montalcino, Castello Banfi has converted its former workers' lodgings into sumptuous accommodations that embody the best of Tuscan-style good living.
The 14 individually styled guestrooms and Suites are housed in conjoined 18th century stone buildings, adjacent to the estate's 12th century castle. Original wood beamed ceilings, deep set windows, and terracotta floors are charmingly combined with patterned silk draperies in soft colors, plump couches, and comfortable beds with romantic baldachins. Special touches include a complimentary bottle of Brunello, an LCD TV hidden in a false bookcase, and free high-speed Internet. Heated towel racks and toiletries made with Sangiovese grapes grown on the estate insure that the bathrooms are just as luxurious as the rooms.
A hearty breakfast starts off the day right, while well-prepared Tuscan dishes are served at lunch and dinner in the vaulted cellars of La Taverna restaurant, or outside on the patio in the shadow of the medieval castle (the house wine list, as you might expect, is excellent!). A small swimming pool overlooks a bucolic landscape of vineyards, and cross-training equipment, an elliptical trainer, treadmill, stationary bicycle, and free weights are at the disposal of guests in a dedicated fitness room.
