  • About this holiday

    L'Andana is a five star hotel set in extensive grounds in southern Tuscany, offering a welcoming, refined, and elegant ambience with fine cuisine. Once the summer residence of the Grand Duke Leopold II, this hotel just outside Castiglione della Pescaia has been lovingly restored, and now offers an enchanting rural resort away from the bright lights of the coast. Spa facilities, tennis, bike rides, horse rides, and a nearby hermitage ensure that guests have plenty to do, enjoying the climate and countryside, and even with a taste of historical culture. Nearby coastal resorts offer opportunities to enjoy the beach and sample some of the fresh seafood. The L'Andana Hotel is well suited to short, sunny breaks, perhaps as part of a touring holiday, as well as long, relaxing breaks in the country.

    Our opinion

     L'Andana is set within a magnificent landscape in southern Tuscany. This luxurious hotel offers the ultimate in relaxation.

    Hotel description

    L’Andana is located in the heart of the Maremma region in southern Tuscany, just a few kilometres from the coast and charming seaside resort of Castiglione della Pescaia with its fine sandy beach and small medieval township. The extensive grounds of L'Andana are spread out across beautiful sweeping hills, covered in parts by pine forests, wildlife reserves, tranquil lakes and the famous Maremma National Park. The hotel itself is approached along a driveway lined by cypress trees from the main entrance right up to the hotel. Bedrooms are situated in two buildings: the original old villa dating back 200 years and a new building linked to the villa by a grand reception area with lounge and bar, all set in a magnificent Florentine glass house, complete with a charming interior courtyard and shady garden. The bedrooms of L'Andana themselves are spacious, adorned in warm colours and decorated with furniture from Italian designers, offering a fine balance of rustic and contemporary styles. The Maremma region is particularly renowned for its high quality cuisine, and the hotel has put a strong emphasis on the quality of its food, with Enrico Bartolini bringing his trademark "contemporary classic" cuisine to the main restaurant, La Trattoria Enrico Bartolini, located a short walk through the grounds in the old granary. Here guests have the opportunity to sample dishes that blend traditional Tuscan flavours with modern elements, an inspiring experience where guests are able to watch chefs at work in the open kitchen. La Villa, L'Andana's other, less formal, dining area serves a variety of Tuscan cuisine - including an outstanding breakfast - on its delightful terrace. There is also a Kids' Club and a very impressive spa which offers a range of therapies using many ingredients grown on the estate. L’Andana offers a welcoming, refined and elegant ambience with fine cuisine in one of Italy’s most attractive regions.
