In the shadow of the Castello di Poggio lies Castello Banfi, a collection of former workers’ houses that have been transformed into a beautiful boutique hotel.
There are six rooms and eight suites, all of which have been individually designed, taking inspiration from the Tuscan countryside. Admire the spectacular panorama of the gently rolling hills from the shade of the pergola, surrounded on all sides by sweetly scented white roses.
The heated outdoor swimming pool overlooks the Sangiovese vineyards and is the perfect vantage point from which to view the beautiful Italian sunsets. The underground wine bar showcases the estate’s still and sparkling wines and you’ll also have the chance to sample local cheeses and classic Tuscan prosciutto. Continue the culinary journey at the hotel’s two restaurants; hole up in the vaulted arches of the former barrel cellars or bask in the sunshine and dine al fresco.
If you find the countryside is beckoning, hiking expeditions and bike rental can be organised so you can fully appreciate the area. For those that want to recreate the mouth-watering flavours of Italy back home, there are cookery classes where you’ll whip up a Tuscan feast, accompanied by a selection of Banfi wines.
