Built in 1485 Villa Bandini is the stately home of the noble Piccolomini family - Lords of the Manor of the enchanting medieval hamlet of Borgo Bandini for generations. This property offers exquisite peace and comfort in a particularly beautiful corner of the magical Val d?Orcia, just thirty minutes drive from Siena.
Guests here will not fail to marvel at the spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes including the famously picturesque villages of Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico d?Orcia and San Giovanni d?Asso - all within a short drive. The ancient village consists of two stony roads, two churches, a castle, a quaint but handy village store and a number of smaller houses that look out across rolling fields and patches of woodland towards the reassuring profile of Mount Amiata.
The Villa has its own private garden and enchanting al fresco dining space. The swimming-pool and surrounding area on top of the hill are shared with the other apartments of Borgo Bandini.
Recently Villa Bandini has undergone extensive refurbishing: its original frescos and beamed ceilings have been expertly restored. The blend of original antiques and classic Tuscan furniture create an effect of true style and elegance.
