Located in a magnificent part of Tuscany between Chianti and Siena, L’Andana is surrounded by centuries old olive groves in quintessential Tuscan foothill country.
The hotel sits in the heart of the 1,220 acre Tenuta La Badiola estate. In this idyllic setting there are 41 guest rooms and suites designed by architect Ettore Mocchetti using the finest fabrics to create an atmosphere of rustic chic. One of the highlights of any stay at L'Andana is the excellent spa, with four treatment rooms and a fine range of treatments on offer. Guests are also strongly advised to wander around the beautiful gardens and visit the neoclassic chapel. There is also a heated outdoor pool and a rustic library.
With 75 acres of vineyards and 125 acres of olive groves it will come as no surprise to hear that the hotel produces its own wine and olive oil are produced on-site and these are served in the restaurant. Chef Enrico Bartolini has crafted a menu of traditional Tuscan cuisine, using the freshest local ingredients and based on regional recipes, as well as perfectly prepared seafood.
Why we love it
L'Andana was once the 16th Century summer palace of the Dukes of Leopold, who headed for the hills when the heat became too oppressive.
