after recommending la bandita to friends and describing every unforgettable detail, i realized we never reviewed this magical place. we visited back in september 2013 and wish we could have stayed longer and are counting the days until we make it back. you can try to describe how beautiful this property is, but you'll never do it justice. every picture...

La Bandita was one of the most majestic places we've ever seen. It's located on top of a hill with one of the most breath taking 360 views of natural park. Once you exit the main road, beware that you still have about 20 minutes of driving on a tiny dirt road. Being that far away from everything was part... More

We only had one night available in Montalcino and came across excellent reviews for La Bandita. Even though it was a bit pricey, we decided 'We're not taking it with us' and splurged for it. So, so glad we did! When we arrived at the end of long day of sightseeing they asked, 'Would you like to join us for... More

What a week! I can't thank John (owner) and the entire staff enough for creating such a wonderful place for my dear friends to get married. We took over the entire place plus a couple B&B's close by and it was simply seamless and utterly magical. We were welcomed by the warm staff on a Friday afternoon and immediately felt... More

We spent 4 nights at La Bandita and had a wonderful experience. The location was beautiful, the staff were warm, and welcoming, the food was amazing, and the company of the other guests was fantastic. Each evening was a perfect dinner party, with excellent food, wine, ambience, and conversation. We really must say that the staff were exceptional in making... More

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
