To mistake the Residenza D’Arte for an art gallery instead of a hotel would be a very easy mistake to make. The owners of this 12th century Tuscan monastery have adorned its walls, floors and gardens with the artwork of acclaimed artist Ana Izzo creating a fusion between the centuries old traditions of the Tuscan countryside and their modern world. The hotel sits amongst the olive groves outside of Torrita de Siena and is a convenient central point for day trips across southern Tuscany. The hotel owners will recommend places to visit and make dinner reservations for you at local restaurants for the evening, all you have to do is take in the view and puzzle over whether the chairs in the sculpture garden are in fact chairs, or another curious piece of artwork.
