my fiance and i just returned from an absolutely wonderful stay at la bandita townhouse. i'm not sure exactly where to start because everything we experienced there was pretty perfect.
we stayed for three nights from dec 30 - jan 2. so we had the pleasure of enjoying a festive new year's eve at the townhouse cafe as well as an after-dinner celebration in the town square.
the service that martina and virginia both provided was amazing. they were so friendly and a joy to come "home" to every day. we couldn't have asked for better hosts. anything we needed, or any questions we had were answered above and beyond.
our room (and the hotel as a whole) was beautifully designed. simple and elegant, while maintaining some of the quaint pienza feel.
we stayed in room 4. it was on the smaller side, but had plenty of space for the two of us. it overlooked the back garden and the quaint side alley. during the day it had lots of nice light pouring in and in the evening, felt very quaint and private.
the library bar with the "honesty bar" is such a nice touch. we enjoyed having a glass of wine while relaxing before dinner on more than one occasion.
also, all of john's area recommendations from food, to sights, to wine, were amazing. we felt like we had our own insider tour guide. such a great benefit.
the only complaint (and this is really searching for something) was that the wifi was a bit unpredictable. it really wasn't much of an issue at all, but possibly worth mentioning. martina and virginia were both very helpful when we pointed it out though.
overall, one of my favorite places i've stayed. we will most definitely be back (probably many times). :)
