Art Hangar

An industrial hall set against the idyllic Tuscan hills: Thanks to its cits creative conversion, this hangar close to Montisi in the province of Siena does not look out of place. The previous owner – Austrian artist Reinhold Traxl – transformed the hall into an apartment and studio. With large windows, that can be closed with transparent iron curtains, the landscape has been integrated into the industrial building. The new owner – a Belgian couple – have renovated the hangar and split it up into two spacious apartments. In one of the lofts they live themselves, in the other – the former studio – a 250 square meter holiday home for four people has been created. Both apartments are divided by a 200 sqm open space, givng privacy to both apartments. The centerpiece of the holiday home is the large living space with an open fireplace designed by Australian artist David McKee, a modern kitchen unit and a wine cellar accessed via a glass floor hatch. This combination of industrial architecture, designer furniture and modern art extends to the garden. It features several sculptures by Reinhold Traxl, a 20-meter pool, which resembles an art object with its sculptural simplicity, and old industrial containers that have been converted into terraces.

Da wir hier die ersten sind, die einen Kommentar verfassen, wollen wir etwas ausführlicher berichten:
Mitten in der Toskana gelegen ist der Art Hangar ein architektonisches Highlight im Industrial Look. Das liebevoll zusammengestellte Interieur im Wohn- und Essbereich setzt sich hinter der Küchenzeile in 2 Schlafzimmern und einem modern und hochwertig eingerichteten Badbereich fort. Das Bad ist teilbar und bietet somit die Möglichkeit, zwei getrennte Badbereiche zu schaffen. Große Fensterflächen lassen im Gegensatz zur traditionellen toskanischen Architektur viel Licht in die Räume und bieten einen herrlichen Blick auf den Garten.
Der riesige Außenbereich ist gespickt mit Skulpturen und bietet viele kleine Rückzugsmöglichkeiten sowie einen imposanten Außenpool.
Man erreicht von diesem modernen und komfortablen Anwesen in kurzer Zeit unglaublich viele interessante Ausflugsziele, wie Siena, Florenz, San Gimigliano aber auch viele kleine Orte wie Pienza oder Montepulciano.
Wir sind es gewohnt, in Ferienwohnungen und –häusern die Reinigung selbst durchzuführen. Umso erfreulicher nahmen wir zur Kenntnis, dass die Räumlichkeiten alle zwei Tage gründlich gereinigt wurden. Der Gärtner kam fast täglich und die Poolreinigung ließ ebenso keine Wünsche übrig. Sauberkeit und Komfort zeichnen diese Ferienunterkunft aus.
Die überaus freundlichen Vermieter Rita und Johny wohnen direkt nebenan, sind stets erreichbar und erfüllen Anliegen oder Wünsche in kurzer Zeit. Die Verständigung ist problemlos auf Italienisch, Englisch oder Belgisch möglich. Wir wurden sehr herzlich willkommen geheißen und fühlten uns sofort wohl. Wer Privatsphäre genießen möchte ist hier ebenso gut aufgehoben, wie Gäste, die Familienanschluss suchen, denn die beiden sind außerordentlich gastfreundlich.
Darüber hinaus bietet die Unterkunft kostenfreies und einwandfreies W-Lan, kostenfreies Parken und hochwertige Hygieneartikel.

Because we´re the first to leave a comment, we want to leave it in detail:
Located in the heart of Tuscany, the Art Hangar is an architectural highlight in the industrial look. The lovingly arranged interior in the living and dining area continues behind the kitchen line in 2 bedrooms and a modern and high-quality bathroom area. The bathroom is divisible and thus offers the possibility to create two separate bathing areas. Large window areas, in contrast to the traditional Tuscan architecture, give a lot of light into the rooms and offer a wonderful view of the garden.
The huge outdoor area is dotted with sculptures and offers many small retreats as well as an imposing outdoor pool.
From this modern and comfortable property you can reach many interesting destinations in a short time, such as Siena, Florence, San Gimigliano, but also many small towns like Pienza or Montepulciano.
We are accustomed to do the cleaning ourselves in apartments and houses. All the more pleasing, we took note of the fact that the rooms were thoroughly cleaned every two days. The gardener came almost daily and the pool cleaning left nothing to be desired. Cleanliness and comfort characterize this accommodation.
The extremely friendly landlords Rita and Johny live directly next door, are always reachable and fulfill requests or wishes in a short time. The communication is easily possible in Italian, English or Belgian. We were very warmly welcomed and immediately felt comfortable. We had much privacy as we wanted, but were always welcomed into the landlords home if we dropped in. The hospitality and unintrusive yet “at home” feeling and care makes this a very comfortable place to be.
Additionally the accommodation offers free and impeccable wireless internet, free parking and high-quality hygiene items.
