We have recently returned from our 6th visit to this wonderfully tranquil hamlet. We love to travel to remote and exciting places and do so regularly, but once a year we are drawn inexorably back to the peace, calm and beautiful location that is Lucignallo Bandini.
The appartments all have their own unique character and it it well worth chatting to Doriana to find the best one for you. She has always been terrifically helpful to us, recommending things to see and wonderful places to eat.
The location at the top of its own hill at the end of a stoney road is wonderfully peaceful yet just a short drive from, Siena, Montalchino, Pienza and Montepulciano. There is endless walking and cycling on the doostep and they will arrange for hire bikes to be delivered to the hamlet for you.
With only 5 appartments sharing the hilltop infinity pool there is a real feeling of exclusivity this as a holiday location.
Simply put, I have loved holidaying in Italy for 50 years and this is one of my very favourite places. If you want to take a break from the stress of 21st century business life I recommend it.
