Dr and Mrs Giacone, the managers and owners of Villa Giacone went out of their way to assist my family in arranging a wonderful two night stay in a beautiful Tuscan hotel. My family and I are extremely grateful for the kindness and generosity they have shown. Thank you so much.

Very nice hotel, with very friendly staff. The rooms are nice and spacious, and the property is gorgeous. I particularly highlight the bathroom, so gorgeous! Downsides: a bit out of the way although not necessarily unreachable. Also, the beds could be improved, as they are not very comfortable. And just because I am picky, all the lights in the hotel...

Villa Armena is in a stunning location and was great for getting away from it all and exploring Tuscany. It is a family run villa and everyone was friendly and helpful, the room was a good size and the continental breakfast plentiful. Overall we had an enjoyable and relaxing stay. However travelling out for dinner on an evening was a... More

Yes we are at the end of a typical Tuscan white road which is 3 km long as stated many times in previous reviews. And that's the beuaty of... More

My husband and I, along with three friends, stayed at Villa Armena in early May and I cannot say enough about what a wonderful time we had. The hotel is in a restored historic building, with every modern amenity. The staff is superb, led by Laura, her son Eduardo and daughter-in-law Elena. All were welcoming and helpful with our every...

When we reached the hotel, they came quickly out and welcomed us. This is a nice family hotel. The kitchen delivered by the expectation we had of a very high standard and they recommended excellent wines to the food. If there was anything you needed they were in place and delivered. One feels that one is "at home" with the... More

My husband and I stayed here last week. It is a lovely traditionally Tuscan-styled building at the end of a winding dirt road. It has been restored beautifully. There were a few modern touches such as in our spa inspired bathroom - with a large soaking tub and a huge shower. Our dinner was really fantastic. We started with handmade... More

I have visited again for a business trip and the quality and taste of the renovation always strike me. The superior kitchen has no equals in the area and the availability of the staff is great! Recommended! It is a small paradise carved out of the hills.

We had a wonderful time at Villa Armena for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We adored Laura from the moment we met her, so warm and friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the wines and helping us decide on the menu. All of the staff and management are outstanding. The rooms are spectacularly designed and very luxurious. The local... More

The perfect Tuscan Villa experience. The owner's mother is absolutely delightful and provided the best Tuscan dining experience I've ever had, explaining the dishes with passion and making all the right choices. The design and look of the rooms and entire Villa was nothing short of spectacular. The hospitality and service were 11 out of 10 - the owner helped... More
