L’Andana is a beautiful luxury hotel situated in the heart of the Maremma, in Southern Tuscany. Formerly a Medici villa, before being renovated by Grand Duke Leopold II for his personal use in the 19th-century, the hotel is surrounded by 150 acres of estate. There’s a luxury wellness spa for all of your pampering needs, two restaurants serving Tuscan delicacies, and even a driving range for keen golfers. All of this is wrapped up in a warm and magical atmosphere surrounded by the scent of the Tuscan countryside where guests can enjoy the sun, colours and warmth of the Mediterranean.
L’Andana is ideal for families, with a children’s play area and activities suitable for the little ones.
Begin your day with the expansive breakfast at Restaurant La Villa, a comfortable dining room with delightful views of the park. Expect hot pastries, orange-flower croissants, fruit-bread, homemade yoghurt and jams, as well as fresh eggs. La Villa also serves relaxed Tuscan fare throughout the day.
The hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Trattoria Enrico Bartolini, is located in the villa’s ancient granary. With an open kitchen and a wood-burning oven, the hotel has an evocative atmosphere, and dishes are served in terracotta bowls and clay plates reflecting the ancient Etruscan heritage of the area.
Bedrooms are split between the Villa and the Frattoria buildings, separated by a charming winter garden with views across the Maremma landscape. French styling works beautifully alongside the more rustic style of the building and the warm colours of the interiors perfectly represent Tuscany's charm and character through hues of ochre, oranges, purples and exquisite silk fabrics from Florence.
Surrounded by pretty gardens, chairs and sunbeds the outdoor heated pool at L'Andana overlooks the town of Castiglione della Pescaia. Sit a while, enjoy the sun and read a book. ESPA treatments are available all day at the L'Andana spa where the focus is on all five senses . Aromatherapy, Phytotherapy and Thalassotherapy are all part of the holistic treatments on offer using essential oils, sea salts and plant extracts.
There are a number of activities on offer across the estate for those that want to immerse themselves in Tuscan culture. Learn the secrets behind Italian cuisine at one of the hotel’s cooking courses; children-friendly lessons are also available. If you’re of an active disposition, take a bike ride to the 16th-century hermitage church, enjoy a game of tennis, or practice your swing on the hotel’s driving range.
The hotel is located in the beautiful surroundings of the Tuscan Maremma coast. Take a trip to the Maremma Nature Reserve, which stretches through 9000 hectares of pine forest, marshy plains, unspoilt coastline and the Uccellina mountain range. There are several signed walking trails, perfect for keen hikers, although it’s important to note that from mid-June to mid-September it’s possible to visit only on a guided tour. On a clear day there is nothing better than taking a boat trip to discover the crystal coves and bays of the nearby Tyrrhenian sea. The largest island is Elba and off the Argentario promontory is the charming little island of Giglio with its pretty fishing villages, lovely beaches and delicious metre long pizzas! Giannutri is a tiny and very peaceful island where cars are not allowed and where the remains of a Roman villa, complete with baths, servants quarters and plumbing system, still stands.
