In the know

Also need to know:

Learn the art of Tuscan cooking There is a shop selling luxury local products, from fine wool jumpers to the estate’s olive oil and wine.Hop on one of the hotel’s mountain bikes and ride down the estate’s eponymous vineyard-side avenue, or pedal your way up and around the olive-tree lined hillside. After your exertions, arrange a tour of the 500-hectare estate’s wine production set-up and guided wine tasting of the fermented fruits of its labour.

Packing tips:

Bring wide-brimmed sun hats and books for poolside lounging, and your clubs if you fancy a game of golf. When packing footwear, Mrs Smith should note that the path between the main building and the restaurant is less forgiving in heels, particularly if the estate’s wine is sampled with dinner.

Dress code:

Casual and breezy works best for breakfast and lunch, but fancy up a bit for dinner: a jacket for Mr Smith and a Sophia Loren-inspired dress for Mrs Smith wouldn’t go amiss.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

The flashiest way to get to the L’Andana hotel in Tuscany is by helicopter. As we drove down the same stretch of road for the third time we considered that this might also be the most practical. As boutique hideaways go, L’Andana is well and truly hidden, but once we swung the car up a long driveway lined with cypresses and pines, and pulled up in front of the only green lawn for miles, we knew this was it.

This hotel in the coastal Tuscan region of Maremma is the former summer residence of Duke Leopold II, and pardon the brochure-style speak, but the Medici-era villa really is set among so

Dining information

Restaurant:

The hotel's La Trattoria is set in the old granary and helmed by Tuscan-born chef Enrico Bartolini and is open to non-guests. Modern Mediterranean dishes are whipped up using fresh, local produce, including aromatic herbs, vegetables, wine and olive oil from the gardens and cellar of Tenuta La Badiola. It’s open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday from June to September; during the summer Monday’s dinner option is a fixed-price (€80 a person) barbecue in the gardens. In casual La Villa, you’ll find excellent breakfasts (freshly baked doughnuts, orange-flower brioches, currant buns and cheesecake, platters of local meats and cheeses) and light lunches such as pea risotto and salad-filled sandwiches. It’s also open for dinners from October to May.

Top Table:

Sit in the orange-tree ringed garden for breakfast at La Villa; for romantic dinners with vineyard views, go for a secluded window-side table.

Last Orders:

At La Villa, breakfast from 7.30am to 10.30am and lunch from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. La Trattoria is open for dinner from 7.30pm to 10pm, and the bar closes up shop at 11pm.

Hotel Bar:

There’s a bar discretely tucked away in the corner of the open-plan lounge area; it’s not always manned, but a friendly member of staff is always in the room, so just ask if you’re feeling parched. There’s a little bar hut by the pool, and you can also order drinks wherever you fancy in the gardens or on the grassed terrace until 11pm. There’s also an area for aperitifs just outside La Trattoria; order a ginger and lime infused Gin Bay or Cosmovita, which arrives in a bed of ice, to sip as the sun sets.
