The Taverna restaurant is located in the vaulted cellars of the Castello. Opened for lunch and dinner, it offers a traditional tuscan cooking.
The Reading Room
Quiet space between the castle’s porticoed courtyard is furnished with backgammon and chess tables, a small library of the family’s favorite novels and travelogues, comfortable furniture and a warming hearth.
Formally planted gardens and a shading pergola provide a tranquil outdoor space in a sun drenched lower courtyard of the Borgo, with dramatic views of the river valley and hills that roll gently toward the sea.
The reception area within Il Borgo was once a meeting place for residents who would gather to exchange news and information; today it continues that role in updated fashion for our guests.
Tucked in a quiet corner of the Borgo, an arched room has been set aside to greet the morning with Continental and full Tuscan breakfast, featuring freshly brewed coffee, tea, home baked delicacies and other traditional dishes.
The Swimming Pool
Behind the castle’s western wall, a swimming pool is laid into the hillside overlooking lush vineyards and enjoys an envious vantage point for dramatic Tuscan sunsets.
An elliptical machine, exercise bicycle and free weights are suited to allow interested guests to continue their normal fitness routine while visiting Castello Banfi.
From among a wide range of customized activities, our concierge can set up hiking and cycling itineraries on the estate and its surroundings; arrange for scenic tours of nearby towns, villages and cities; organize shopping expeditions; and arrange appointments and treatment at nearby spas.
