I stayed with my spouse in Spring and like many previous reviewers, we thought it is a beautiful enough place with great access to major tourist areas. They also have some quite lovely recommendations of places to visit. However, sadly we arrived and felt completely let down. To the point that we were ready to simply pack our bags and... More

Simply put, La Bandita is my new "happy place." Everything about this hotel (we stayed at the farmhouse) is perfect. The rooms are immaculate, the service could not be better - or friendlier, the food was to die for (they have their own chef, Dario, who I wanted to take home with me), and the location was unreal. As another... More

This is really the perfect hotel. The location is, of course, ideal- the super charming town of Pienza in the heart of Tuscany, in the Val d'Orcia region, famous for it's beauty and it's wines, and which is now a world heritage site. The hotel itself is grand old structure which has been completely remodeled and renovated, making it a... More

La Bandita was the highlight of our Tuscan vacation! Everything was just wonderful! Those words do not quite do it justice, but truly it was perfect! I cannot say enough about the staff.. they are wonderful and really do everything to make you feel at home, rather than a "customer". I was lucky enough to enjoy a day of cooking... More

In the heart of the Hill Cities, lies this wonderful bed and breakfast with an amazing cast of employees in an almost idyllic setting. The rooms are a bit eclectic, but more than comfortable, with a nice outdoor patio, fire pit and more. Pizza night was wonderous, hand made with only the freshest ingredients...the staff is attentive and caring. The... More

We spent 2 nights at Bandita Country House and I arrived with very high expectations of its quality after reading many reviews and articles about it. I am delighted to say that my expectations were exceeded by the kind genuine staff, beautiful comfortable guest rooms and common areas, and awesome outdoor spaces and pool overlooking incredible scenery.

We stayed 5 days in Sept 2013 as part of a driving tour of Italy. For us the pluses at La Bandita considerably outweighed the minuses and we'd recommend it. First the pluses: lovely hilltop setting in the unspoiled Val d'Orcia, excellent local recommendations, thoughtful personal service by a team of locals, sociable 'house party' drinks and dining, good quality...
