11 Apr Castello Banfi il Borgo
In the heart of Tuscany, immersed in the gorgeous Tuscan country side of the famous Brunello’s wine region, lies an important eno-tourist centre, Castello Banfi. The fortress is situated on a hill overlooking the surrounding land where high-quality vines are grown, great expanses that give birth to excellent productions such as the famous Brunello di Montalcino. Montalcino is 20 km away and other important cities in the area are Siena and Florence respectively at 70 km and 130 km, both north of the estate.
The hotel Castello Banfi il Borgo, at the centre of a domain of 2830 hectares, is a stone village that was built around 1700 next to the towering castle, formerly called “Poggio alle Mura”. The stone houses of the Village were built outside the walls, but not too far away from them, when it was safe enough to move from those without, however, stray too far. The medieval fortress, now known as the Castello Banfi, is used as a reception centre of the wine estate that bears the same name. The exteriors of the structure, even after the renovation, have maintained the original form of a typical building of the XII century, but the interiors are certainly a pleasant surprise: elegantly furnished, spacious, airy and enriched with every comfort. The special attention that guests receive from all the staff of the Castello Banfi, makes the holiday in this enchanting place unique.
You will only have one regret: that the holiday will last too short!
