Vascanera Loft

A place for artists, for dreamers, for people with an open mind. For people who like to leave the beaten track…

Vascanera Loft is a true unique and different private escape! An industrial setting against the idyllic Tuscan hills. In the well known Val d’Orcia near Pienza, Montepulciano and Siena this holiday home guarantees a different experience. One large open space area with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an amazing park style garden full of art and completed by an amazing 20 meters pool. Originally designed by the Austrian artist Reinhold Traxl, the current owners renovated the hangar and converted the former work studio into a 250 square meter holiday home for 4-6 guests. The centerpiece of the loft is the large living space, with large windows that can be closed with transparent iron curtains. In the middle of this room a large open fireplace, designed by the Australian artist David McKee gives warmth during colder days. There is a modern kitchen unit and wine cellar, which can be accessed via a glass door integrated in the concrete floor.

There are many outside private terraces, including a hide away garden house container with terrace, which can also be converted into a kids room.

Vascanera Loft strongly appeals to the ones who love Art and Design and on the other hand love to wander through the traditional Tuscan Countryside.
