Myself, my husband and our 14 month old baby returned home yesterday from our 6 day stay at La Bandita. We were so sad to leave and would have stayed longer if there was any availability. This place is very popular and fills quickly! La Bandita really is a fabulous place and we loved every minute of our trip. The... More

My wife and I found La Bandita after a long search for a wedding blessing in 2010. We saw a lot of venues and liked 2 or 3 from Mr and Mrs Smith but really thought la bandita was very special from the moment we arrived. The villa is set on top of a hill with 360 views of picture... More

La Bandita is truly a special place. My husband and I went with our best friends to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. La Bandita has a homey feel where you can eat amazing food, drink incredible wine and just relax. Centrally located and easy to get to surrounding towns like Montalcino and Pienza (get a gps). The staff made all... More

A recent visit to LaBandita (near Pienza) proved to be the highlight of a two week driving trip thru central Italy. Reviews written are not exagerated. It is one of the finest inn's anywhere. Spectacular views, incredible service and a novel approach to a botique hotel make this a destination not to be missed. Dinner and a cooking lession with... More

La Bandita is a 'Babington House/Aman-esque' experience set in Tuscany. The relaxed style of accommodation provided by La Bandita makes you feel like you are staying at a friend's luxurious Tuscan villa rather than a hotel.

JOHN VOIGHTMANN. Remember the name. And if ever you see it mentioned with regard to the hospitality industry - just book it. John's got something incredibly special going on.

In short our stay was AMAZING!

We are just finishing a wonderful 5 day stay at La Bandita. This cozy place sits on a lovely hilltop in the middle of the countryside, an hour south of Siena.
