Travellers' Choice
La Bandita is a farmhouse built in the early 1800s. The definition "bandit" refers to a territory in which hunting, fishing and harvesting are forbidden or banned, a nature reserve therefore. Since 1988 it offers its guests the possibility of a peaceful and relaxing stay in a rural hotel in one of the most beautiful areas of the Tuscan countryside, the Val di Chiana. Love for the countryside, gardening and outdoor life have characterized the activity of innkeepers, until now. Today La Bandita Country Hotel is born, which fully reflects the tradition of its founders, innovating the structure and making it a special place of the past, where children and parents can spend unforgettable moments together, but also a couple in pure relaxation. We wanted to create a beautiful place to relax, eat well and be involved in the daily rhythms of country life, without neglecting comfort and design.

I stayed here for 5 nights with friends and it was delightful. Family run so nothing was to much effort to help us. Rooms were spacious and nicely furnished and had air-con. Breakfast was included and was really good with a great selection. On the final night I had 23 friends to their restaurant and it was such great food and service, and they had even set a room for the kids to go and watch a movie. Its in a great location and very easy to do day trips. I would highly recommend this Hotel if you are visiting Tuscany.

We have just come back from our daughter’s wedding in Tuscany. We stayed at La Bandita Country Hotel. In our lives we have travelled the world but this hotel is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Debbie & Massimiliano are the wonderful owners. Their two children are lovely. Such a lovely family. Debbie is an amazing chef her food is out of this world. Nothing is too much trouble. We were looked after so much and we were quite sad when we came to leave to go home. We would definitely go back and will recommend this magical place to all my family and friends. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and so many things for children to do. We want to thank Debbie and Massimiliano for a wonderful stay. We wish you so well. Lindsay & Frank from UK.

We’ve just returned from an amazing, relaxing week’s stay with Debbie, Massimiliano and their lovely family at La Bandita. The property itself is as pretty as the pictures suggest and really easy to get to from Florence airport (only 1 hour). On arriving at the property (quite late...!) we were treated with an amazing plate of Tuscan meats, Pecorino cheeses and wine - perfect way to start the holiday and that was just the start of things to come. Breakfast each morning is truly epic with a selection of delicious pastries and cakes together with the usual cereals, fruit, juices and additional hot food which could be cooked (eggs etc). As a pastry chef by trade originally, the pastries and cakes are second to none! Debbie and her team also provide a lovely, varied menu for lunch and dinner, using local seasonal produce and handmade pasta (including the deleicious Pici pasta which our 3 year old son loved!). Everything was locally sourced, sausages, truffles, wine and was truly delicious. Aside from the amazing food and wine, the hotel also has lovely gardens with a nice selection of play equipment for the kids to enjoy (trampoline, slides, swings) and a great pool which is kept nice and clean. In terms of location, the property is perfectly placed for day trips to many of the stunning towns and places of interest, such as Montepulciano and Lake Trasimeno. We really did have a lovely, relaxing holiday at La Bandita and the family and staff were all so friendly and welcoming. Debbie and Massimiliano have only recently taken over the hotel and are already doing a great job, we can’t wait to visit again and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to other families and couples looking for a relaxing Tuscan break.
