La Bandita Townhouse

Guesthouse, Hotel
5/5 (1 Reviews)

Though La Bandita also offers a tranquil home in the Tuscan countryside, you’d be missing out on one of the overlooked elements of Tuscany: village life. Sleep right in Pienza’s historic centre and spend your days wandering cobblestone alleys taking in the Renaissance architecture. Watch the locals meander in and out of the main piazza, their arms full of fresh groceries – the same ingredients that the chef at the Townhouse Caffe will use for your daily meals.

Explore Pienza at your leisure from Piccolo Hotel La Valle. Within a few minutes, you can reach the Museo Diocesano, Pienza Cathedral and Palazzo Piccolomini’s Italian Renaissance Garden at a slow pace. You’ll have all day to spend embracing the historic sites – that is, if you don’t get too distracted staring off into the Val d’Orcia from your suite’s panoramic balcony. The breakfast buffet may derail your departure as well, but, thankfully, the Piazza Pio II and scenic point from The Gladiator aren’t going anywhere.
