The Mediterranean! I have endlessly taken in its scents, its sun,
its colours and warmth, its generosity, its products.
Its diversity has fascinated me, its wealth has inebriated me,
its often arid rigour has seduced me.
In spring 2004, Alain Ducasse indulged his passion for Italy by setting up a new resort in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, inspired by the charms of the Mediterranean. Thus came about L’Andana, in the 500-hectare La Badiola Estate, a few miles from Castiglione della Pescaia, the result of a joint effort by the Moretti family and Alain Ducasse in the dual role of chef and hotelier.
An enchanting resort with a gourmand SPA, Tuscan Trattoria, golf driving range and romantic private chapel, L'Andana takes its name from its long driveway, which is flanked by cypresses and maritime pines and enveloped in a magical fairytale atmosphere, within a delightful nature park. At Tenuta La Badiola the scents of the Tuscan countryside blend with the brackish fragrances of the Tyrrhenian, in a sensory experience that caresses the guests’ sensations and emotions.
This natural setting merges with the fascination of history. The building that now houses L'Andana was once a Medici villa where Grand Duke Leopold II and his court resided during the summer season. Here, in this place he loved so much, the Grand Duke launched major reclamation work in the Maremma.
L’Andana, with its 33 rooms and suites, is a member of “The Leading Hotels of the World”, an international brand of luxury hotels
