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

We stayed at this villa for 5 nights. The staff were extremely helpful and always made us feel welcomed and at home. Food was excellent. Rooms were extremely clean. Staff were able to speak and understnd English, which was a plus point. Id definitely go back to this villa again. Shuel

This was our second time back to VA; our first trip, two years ago, was absolutely beautiful so we had a bit of trepidation not knowing if our experience would be as good. Fortunately, the rooms and staff proved to be as good as we experienced. Our only let down was the food. While we only ate dinner there once... More

We have just returned from 8 days in Italy and by far the highlight of our trip was the 2 nights we spent at this beautifully restored Tuscan villa. Our room reservation was upgraded to a junior suite, to give us just that extra bit of luxury. The bathroom with massive shower and square bath made us feel so decadent.... More

This hotel was the last stop of our month long trip. We choose it because it looked luxury on their website and had good reviews. We also wanted to visit Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano so the location seemed convenient. The place turned out to be in the middle of nowhere. It’s too far from any towns that are worth to visit.... More
