About La Bandita

La Bandita is a charming boutique hotel that sits in Tuscany’s stunning Val d’Orcia, near the historic town of Pienza.

La Bandita is a charming boutique hotel that sits in Tuscany’s stunning Val d’Orcia, near the historic town of Pienza. Surrounded by endless pasturelands dotted with sheep and hillside cypress groves, this is the Tuscany that most people see in their imagination (but few are able to find in reality). The valley's walled villages, collectively part of an UNESCO World Heritage Site, add to the timeless atmosphere. These landscapes, which are visible from all over La Bandita's grounds, were used in films like the English Patient, Gladiator and Under the Tuscan Sun. Owned by former music mogul John Voigtmann, who used to manage Christina Aguilera, La Bandita boasts a welcoming atmosphere and just the right measure of luxury. Organic toiletries, designer textiles, air conditioners, modern furniture, and entertainment systems are found in each of the eight rooms. Upper level rooms are perfectly placed for stunning sunset views, while larger rooms offer extras like sunken baths and oversized walk-in showers. In addition to complementary breakfast and bottomless cappuccinos, guest have access to an infinity pool, which overlooks the valley, and La Bandita’s expansive outdoor dining spaces. The focus here is on personal attention. Recommendations, directions, tickets and reservations are easy to come by from the onsite concierge, and the estate's skilled chef can prepare meals upon request (though daily breakfast is provided free of charge to all guests). La Bandita can be rented out in its entirety for people who want to host a private event such as a destination wedding or a family reunion.  Three-day weekend wedding packages are available. What to do Explore the surrounding hill towns and landscapes on one of La Bandita’s mountain bikes. Spend the day in Pienza, a well-preserved renaissance-era town with a charming piazza. Lounge in the outdoor dining space with a cappuccino (or a glass of wine) in hand.

The outdoor infinity swimming pool, which offers panoramic views of the valley.
