The owners of La Bandita, one of Tuscany's newer boutique hotels, fell in love with Italy a long time ago and had their honeymoon in neighbouring Umbria. In the words of the owner John 'I wanted a beautiful, comfortable retreat, with a modern look and a relaxed atmosphere, where my friends, and friends of friends from all over the world could come to relax, cook big dinners, and enjoy Tuscany.' John and Ondine together have designed La Bandita as a chic, laid back b & b and also as a villa rental. La Bandita sleeps 16 adults comfortably as well as several small children (cots and chairs provided at no extra cost!).


Chill out by the pool and admire the views with a glass of wine! Alternatively La Bandita offers the perfect base from which to explore the stunning Val d'Orcia and the hill towns of southern Tuscany and around Siena. The striking ancient clay hills of the crete senesi and perfectly preserved medieval and Renaissance hills towns, abbeys and castles characterise this part of southern Tuscany where life continues much the same as it has for centuries.


Family-style dinner is served a couple of nights a week and for other evenings there are plenty of restaurants a short drive away. John and Ondine have eaten in all of them and so can recommend and book the one that best suits you.
