We stayed Three days at this beautiful hotel in July. As an Interior designer I seek hotels that inspire me, and this truly did! It was beautifully decorated in every room, and the bathroom in our suite had lots of luxury details. We loved the pool area, though the water could have been a little warmer. Nice base to explore...

If you're looking to get away from it all and have a quiet, most enjoyable experience, then this hotel is for you. It's very luxurious and the staff are fantastic. We quite enjoyed our dining experience and our kids loved being able to watch the chef preparing our meals from the viewing window. The pool is very pretty but a... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights recently in July and after reading the amazing reviews and seeing the awards that Villa Armena had recently won, we were so excited. Maybe because of all the great reviews, my expectations were high, but unfortunately our experience didn't meet expectations. It was a lovely hotel. Lovely breakfast, lovely room, clean... More

Having just been there this week with my wife, I can't share enough pleasure about the property. In the middle of nowhere it is an oasis in Italy. The care that was put into the property and its renovation from the food, the service, the rooms, the bathrooms and the grounds makes it a diamond in the rough.

My wife and I had the fortune of spending 2 nites at Villa Armena in June 2014. The villa has been beautifully and painstakingly restored and decorated to a grace and grandeur only found in gorgeous Tuscany -- all by the husband and wife team of Edoardo and Elena (with adorable baby Leonardo!). The furnishings and appointments (many of which... More

Perched atop of a hill at the end of a long unpaved climbing road (narrow and with many potholes), this Renaissance Villa offers modern accomodations with fabulous views of the gorgeous countryside. The bed is firm and super comfortable, the pillows good (and you can choose different ones), the bathroom absolutely fantastic with luxury amenities. Where the Villa comes short... More

Good evening dear AGrassini and thank you very much for your very good review of Villa Armena, I'm glad you have enjoyed your stay with us. I think you have really hit the spot with your review: we are not the Four Season, we do not want to be the Four Season and we don't charge the prices of the... More

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
