Located directly between the vineyards of Ornellaia and Sassicaia, La Bandiera is uniquely situated in 130 acres of pine trees, olive groves and lavender plantations. The main Villa has been progressively refurbished over several years along with the adjacent guest houses and gardens. The house had originally been extensively rebuilt in 1990, at which point a basement had been constructed but never fully fitted out.
Work carried out in the basement of the main villa has included the creation of a rosewood lined cinema, a gym, spa and massage room and a billiard room with adjacent children’s hang-out area; on the upper floors all the main rooms have been refurbished to create an open and fresh atmosphere that takes full advantage of the Tuscan views and light. The two guest houses were remodelled to produce additional bedrooms while the bathrooms were updated using local marble and hand made tiles.
Externally work is underway to restore the formal gardens originally designed by Arabella Lenox Boyd, and to develop new areas including a walled garden and a Mediterranean garden.
