  • Overview

    New for 2013 is La Bandita Townhouse sister boutique hotel to La Bandita.  This brand new Chic Retreat and former nunnery has 12 rooms in the heart of Pienza, a beautiful small Tuscan village in the Val D’Orcia. Located between Florence and Rome in southern Tuscany, Pienza is situated in the province of Siena.  Watch the world go by on the cobbled streets from your window and enjoy a glass of vino and delicious bruschetta from La Bandita's wine bar.


    For the weary traveller that needs a lift, there is a private spa suite for massages and treatments as well as a steam bath and hot tub.  Behind La Bandita Townhouse is a private walled garden, providing a secluded and private oasis where you can relax on one of the sun loungers by the small plunge pool.


    The Townhouse Caffe is the intimate in-house restaurant and wine bar which has an open kitchen for guests to have direct interaction with the chef while he is working his magic. There is a cosy covered outdoor seating area inside the walled garden. The chef focuses on Tuscan classics using the freshest seasonal local ingredients as well as a small list of well-crafted dishes or Italian tapas meant to be shared.

    Children under 5 of guests hotel can eat for free at the Caffe when dining with their parents.
