Do you have a picture in your mind of the perfect Tuscan villa? It could well look like Bandella. This is an imposing mansion, with stone-dressed arched windows, and a terracotta-tiled roof crowned by a second storey shaped like a cupola. Set in lush gardens studded with cypress trees, this villa makes quite a statement in the landscape, an impressive place to host a holiday for the extended family or a group of good friends. What’s more, it’s just a short drive from one of Tuscany’s true highlights, the lovely walled medieval town of San Gimignano.
Bandella just oozes with traditional features, such as the lovely wooden beams and herringbone terracotta-tiled floors, which are enhanced by elegant antique furnishings. But it’s well equipped for supremely comfortable modern living, too, from its squashy sofas in the huge lounge to the professional-standard kitchen. Treats include the first-floor terrace, onto which two of the bedrooms open, and the private balconies off the top-storey rooms, all giving wonderful views. Outside, there is a terrace furnished with a large wooden table with benches, and a stone path winds through the upper garden and down some steps to a private pool, screened by a row of trees and hedges. Take your pick of the vantage points and enjoy a glass of local wine while daydreaming that you are master or mistress of all that you survey.

Our Thoughts
There’s just so much space for everyone to relax in at Bandella, we think it is an ideal choice for multi-generational families or large groups of friends. All those balconies and terraces – such a lovely feature. Guests will find it hard to drag themselves away from the large pool, and the covered terrace with its wooden table and bench seats, overlooking the gardens, is a great place for a meal.
Notes
Nine bedrooms. Six bathrooms, five en-suite, one guest toilet.
There is another villa next door – the two properties are separated by a tall hedge which offers some privacy.
Owners restaurant within walking distance, breakfast and diner served daily.
