My fiancée and I stayed at Residenza d'Arte for a week in early July. This was my 6th trip to Tuscany and my fiancée's first. Our week in Tuscany was part of a two month vacation we were spending in Italy and France. We typically like to mix both city and rural destinations in our trips to Europe. Almost without... More

We just returned from our first trip to Italy. Our first stay was here at the Residenza D'Arte. Beautiful! We were well taken care of and the grounds are magnificent. We were given day trip recommendations and the best dinner suggestions anyone could ask for. We loved the fact that we could take day trips throughout Tuscany and be back... More

We were very happy with our experience at Residenza. Our room was upgraded since the hotel was not full and it was very spacious. Overall the couple that owns the hotel (and their daughter) are very hospitable and accommodating. They gave us great restaurant and sightseeing recommendations... The grounds and the hotel itself are very unique and visually stimulating. Quirky/fun... More

A quirky but inviting villa in the heart of Tuscany. A strong family presence makes it a delightful place to stay. Excellent advice on local restaurants and historical attractions all part of the service. We would strongly recommend it, especially if you love art, which punctuates all parts of the beautiful building and garden. 10 mins by car to Montepulcianio... More

We stayed at Residenza d'Arte for 2 autumn nights during an Italian road trip. The hospitality was above and beyond our expectations and Biago, Anna, and Francesca helped us through every step of our journey -- suggesting towns to see, restaurants to try, and mapping out a good route for us to complete our trip. It was truly a magical... More

We stayed at the Residenza for 8 nights in October. It is a very magical place, owned and run by talented artist Anna Izzo, her husband Biago and their daughter Francesca. The Residenza is an old Monastery that has been painstakingly and beautifully restored. The rooms and grounds are extraordinary as they are filled with paintings and sculptures done by... More

The converted monastery and setting was magical. However, it was the hospitality of Francesca, Bagio and Anna that made staying at Residenza d'Arte the highlight of our trip to Italy. They went above and beyond to make our Tuscany experience memorable for so many reasons. The touring and restaurants recommendations were just perfect. Bagio even arranged a rental car for... More

My boyfriend and I booked Residenza d'Arte through Tablet Hotels while looking for a relaxing weekend to spend in the Tuscany countryside. Little did I know that he also planned on proposing while there! This villa was a perfect setting for a truly magical and memorable proposal.

We spent three nights at Residenza d'Arte in Torrita di Siena in September 2013. From the moment we set foot on the property, we were treated to Francesca's warm welcome that set the tone for a perfect stay in Tuscany. Francesca, Biagio and Anna, the owners, are the nicest hosts you can hope for: charming, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. All... More

We stayed at the Residenza D'Arte for three nights last week and had a fantastic time in Tuscany. Bagio and Francesca gave us wonderful restaurant suggestions and recommended hot springs / vineyards / castles in nearby towns for us to visit. They even mapped out the driving routes for us and arranged a last-minute car rental. It's like staying with... More
