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...

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...

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...

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...

It's been a year since we stayed at La Bandita and not a day has gone by that I have not wished I was back there. Maybe its the photo I blew up to hang on the wall, maybe its the craving for Davids amazing food, or it could be I want the attention and love the staff shared, and...
