L'Andana is a wonderful hotel which keeps pulling us back because of the charm and warmth of its' amazing staff and great facilities. We spent a wonderful 7 days here this summer and introduced a friend to the hotel and she, too, has fallen in love with the hotel.
From the moment you arrive at the gates and pass through and up the long tree lined drive you feel like you've arrived home. Then you are met by great staff who take the luggage and are greeted by the lovely reception staff who treat you as part of their family - a very special skill. Nothing is too much trouble at L'Andana and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. We were shown to our normal room - a junior suite on the ground floor and it felt like we'd never been away! I have to say that the ladies who look after the rooms do a great job and on our last day I managed to have a conversation with one of them (using my limited Italian!) and she has been working there as long as we have been going (about 8-10 years).
This year there were 2 weddings during our stay - the 2nd one was more disruptive than usual as guests arrived mid-way through the week and stayed in big groups - very disruptive at breakfast time in particular.
The grounds of L'Andana are extensive so there are many places to go exploring and once outside of the hotel there are many hill top villages which are worth visiting and include Pitigliano and Massa Maritima both unique places. We ate in Castiglione as well and of course explored the Saturday market.
We were pleased to see a long standing member of staff had returned after being away for a year and he created us as you would friends which epitomises the wonderful staff at the hotel. Also a special mention to Elena (ex wine shop!) who kindly offered to show our friend round the winery and then to the wine tasting (a must when you visit L'Andana) which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Next year we are returning for 2 weeks and will be bringing more friends to celebrate a milestone birthday for me - we've already started the planning are are all looking forward to our time at a very special place.
