We have just returned from a three night stay at the Residenza celebrating our 25th Wedding anniversary. It is a unique boutique hotel in a brilliant location with the most welcoming and helpful owners. Set in its own gardens just outside Torritta it is adorned with works of art. A very peaceful location.The rooms are beautifully decorated with pieces of...

We loved this wonderful, off-the-beaten path B&B. The property is charming but the pièce de résistance is the fabulous sculptural art throughout the property and within the main community spaces. this is a must see and stay Inn.

We recently spent a fabulous week at The Residenza d'Arte in Torrita di Siena - located just outside of the medieval town. The hotel is ideally situated to explore the area or in our case to attend the Blues Music Festival. But this is no normal hotel! It combines a magnificently restored historic building with an amazing art gallery of...

I stayed her with my family in August, 2015. The property is near to the small village of Torrita di Siena but remote enough that you feel it is the countryside.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Residenza d'Arte is a charming 14th century village in stone, an historical dwelling unique in the world that rises majestically on a splendid hill with stunning panoramic view, surrounded by cypresses and age-old olive trees. The Residenza is situated in the medieval town of Torrita di Siena, a few kilometers from Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Cortona. As soon as you cross the gate of this historic dwelling, you will join in an artistic and poetic experience where nature and contemporary art are in harmony, so the Residenza d'Arte is a unique place to stay. The reception desk is in a large and pleasant hall where ancient beams and stone walls vibrate in a chromatic moving dance together with a collection of paintings, sculptures, and design artworks. The entire village is wrapped in a magic atmosphere, from rooms to the surrounding park. The project to create an unique Gallery Hotel in the world as the Residenza d'Arte starts from an idea of the artist Anna Izzo, sculptress, painter and interior designer known all over the world. ... more   less
