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 stayed in one of the junior bedrooms (I believe it was the... More

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

We recently spent a few weeks in Tuscany. Due to our first choice of hotels (La Ciusa) being booked, we selected the Residenza d'Arts in Torrita di Siena, a small town that is well located to do day trips to Siena, Montipulicano, Montefulionca, Pienza, etc. This is a really special place that caught us by surprise. We reserved a superior... More

Residenza d'Arte is truly a magical place! My husband and I stayed here in June 2013 for three nights and we absolutely loved it. The old Monestery itself is beautiful. The building and grounds are adorned with the artist/owner's (Anna Izzo) modern art celebrating women. It isa museum housed in a unique historic hotel. Most of the pieces have been... More

We stayed at Residenza D'arte for 5 nights mid-April. There were many positives to our stay, but by far the biggest advantage was the owners care and recommendations that made our time in Tuscany a real treat. We used the Residenza as a base for our travels and were able to do quite a few day trips to the surrounding... More

For a family of 4, (kids 14 & 8) we weren't sure what to expect, but we were determined to stay here because we had commissioned a painting of this place a few years ago and thought it would be fun to "live" inside our painting for a day. The place did NOT match our painting, but it did exceed... More
