We spent 5 nights there last week. The property is really lovely and the premises has been beautifully resotred/renovated. As it is a bit remote, you would need to have your own car. If you follow GPS to get there, be very careful as with us it selected a very dangerous wet clay farm road where we got stuck. In...

From the moment you arrive you receive a very warm welcome. We spent 6 days there and traveled the Tuscan country side. The atmosphere is very relaxing, the owners and their staff are a treasure. The restored Villa is unique, attention to detail surrounds every corner. I would highly recommend this delightful experience.

We stayed at Villa Armena for two nights at the beginning of October. The Villa has been restored to a very high standard and is situated in the middle of beautiful tuscan countryside very much off the beaten track. The location is very peaceful but is within easy reach of Siena and many of the famous hill towns of Tuscany....

We spent a wonderful night at Villa Armena Relais at the end of September as stop over between Positano and Florence. The warm welcome from the moment we arrived continued throughout our stay - the hospitality is exceptional! The Villa has been renovated tastefully with no expense spared. Our room was decorated with a fine eye for style, as with...

I have a strong feeling next time I come back to Tuscany, Villa Armena will be out of my price range. What a phenomenal hotel... best place I've ever stayed and they should be FAMOUS! We had the absolute best experience and it made everywhere else we stayed in Tuscany seem sub-par. Miss it already.

We chose Villa Armena as our home base in Tuscany based on its outstanding reviews and could not have been more delighted with our decision. The grounds of the Villa are simply breathtaking and our room ranked among the nicest hotels in which we've stayed. Starting each day enjoying a wonderful breakfast outside in the courtyard and returning from each...

My review: My wife and I stayed at the beautiful Villa Armena while touring Italy, and our high expectations were exceeded in every regard. From unending friendly hospitality, which can only be provided by a truly family-run villa such as this, to the exquisite food and breathtaking setting and facilities, during our stay we had the feeling we were enjoying...

Beautiful brand new place located near Buonconvento, Montalcino and Siena, with fantastic service. This is the perfect place to scape from world and relax, Laura will help you to choose the right wine to go with typical tuscany cuisine.

This family run hotel was a big surprise. Enjoying the most of what Tuscany has to offer, we drove all over tuscany's hills and stop in different places. Our only regret is to have booked this place for one night only. It is a fully refurbished old Tuscan massive house. Everything is done with taste, the garden is beautiful and...
