The Ancient Abode Residence of Art is situated in the commune of Torrita di Siena to few kms. from Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano and Cortona. Its an ancient Suburb in stone of the XIV century positioned on a splendid hill inserted in a landscape of rare beauty surrounded by cypresses and secular olive groves.

The Residence of Art is an historical abode that rises nearby to a 400 church (inside we can celebrate weddings and religious ceremonies), that gives the name to the suburb "Knoll Madonna of the Olivo". The principal characteristic of the Residence of Art, that offers a service of bed and breakfast or the whole house , is to give a sojourn in a place rich in works of art both pictorial and sculptural (around 300 the exposed works) positioned in all the inside environments and in the park, a sort of cultural trip among the art of the past and the present.

Each Suite is particular and different from the others. Mislead in wood, fireplaces, arcs and old boundaries in stone brought to the ancient shines, from an accurate restauration, cohabit together with meaningful works of contemporary art and design creating a particular atmosphere that conjugates the poetry of the past with all conforts of the present.
