From a project started by famous Austrian sculpture Reinhold Traxl and his wife Astrid, we developed a modern 250 sqm loft, with big glass openings, making tuscan nature come inside. The central open fireplace, made by Australian artist David Mc Kee, is definitely the eye catcher from the living room. Design furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and your own wine cellar make this 120 sqm space a vibrant but at the same time, a relaxing place as nature flows in from the big windows.
Two bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with big rain showers, are suited to accommodate 4 guests. Both bathrooms have access to a big bathtub ( 200x100 ) and the outside shower.
The pool is having its own bathroom, made in the old electricity tower, situated next to a sea container from which terrace one is having great views on Montelifré.
Design furniture and art pieces are all around the apartment and garden, together with a fabulous 20 mtr lap pool.
In the open space, next to the loft, one can organize a (business) reunion, a disco party or …just hang around…
Wash machine and dryer are available.

If design and art makes part of your life, this is the place to be in Tuscany!
An industrial hangar build amid the Tuscan countryside, views on the medieval ruins of Montelifré and 2 km away from the small town of Montisi: that’s what it was.
But the hangar became more since his building in the late sixties: Austrian sculpture Reinhold Traxl, made it his home and studio in 1999…and that’s where the hangar’s real story begins…
Being artist but also architect, together with his friend Peter Thurner, an Austrian architect, he created a ‘box’ concept , where big glass openings could be closed by movable, transparant iron curtains. They pulled in the outside landscape by creating terraces, which protect the residents from rain and sun.
It is very rare to find such a modern interpretation of living in the Tuscan countryside, the more while it isn’t disturbing nature, but even bringing honour to it.
In 2013, Reinhold Traxl became very ill and he had to sell his ‘atelier-house’. However, also the new owner is a person with an open spirit and the same vision on ‘living’, and together with Johny Thielens, he continued the project started by Reinhold.
So, ‘art-hangar’ remained a place for artists, for dreamers, for people with an open mind, in a word: for people daring to leave the beaten path…
