An outstanding property which has been renovated to the highest standards by the owners. A great deal of thought and good taste has resulted in a retreat which matches the wonderful surrounding countryside. Eduardo and Laura worked so hard to make our stay memorable and we would not only recommend this location, but will return. I can sympathise with and... More

My daughter and I traveled to Tuscany for a week. We chose to stay in Buonconvento for it is close to Montepulciano, Pienza, San Quirico D'Orcia and Montalcino. I really wanted to book two days in the Villa Armenian since I saw the photos on their site. And we're glad we did! It is just outstanding! The villa is beautiful... More

This is one of the hardest reviews that I've written as Villa Armena offered so much and delivered very well is some ways, yet missed the mark in others. This is a real shame, as it wouldn't take much to have been 100%. By way of introduction, I'd rate the hotel as 5/5. However, I'd rate the restaurant as 3/5.... More

My partner and I were travelling around Italy for two weeks, and we both agree that Villa Armena was by far the highlight of our Italian experience! We loved our time there, the room was beautiful, every detail had been thought about. Elena, Eduardo and Laura gave us a very warm welcome and were always attentive to our needs. For... More

We especially like the mom who... More

We spent two nights last week at the Villa Armena and we really enjoyed our stay there. Everything is perfect! - The villa is gorgeous, the owners made a great job there: they rebuilt the entire villa mixing tradition and modernity inside. The rooms are beautiful, very comfortable, with floor to ceiling marble bathrooms with top quality fixtures and fittings.... More

We had a wonderful stay! Everything from the food to the people were perfect. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with lots of amenities. The staff recommended a winery near by where we had a private tasting. We can't wait to go back!

I came across this absolute gem in Tuscany on an overnight trip from Rome to Venice last weekend (22 March 2014). I was already impressed by its excellent reviews, but even they could not do it justice. From the moment of arrival, greeted by the genuinely welcoming and warm Elena, the Proprietess, it felt like one of those truly special... More
