Great base for getting to know Tuscany. The staff was excellent:Edoardo, Elena and Laura thank you very much for your kindness! The room was extremely comfortable, warm and very welcoming. The bathroom was simply to die for. It was really nice to be in such a beautiful hotel- super comfy bed, ETRO amenities, floor to cealing marble bathrooms, excellent Wi-Fi.... More

We stayed for two nights just after the new year and the experience was outstanding. Great staff, Great food and a great property in a perfect location. We will definitely stay there again! The restoration of this Villa was very impressive. The glass in the bathroom was so clean my girlfriend ran into it. Which was hilarious!

This Hotel is one of those places you just wish to stay inside and spend many days. The room we stayed in was a big suite and the bathroom was done in a really modern way, with great taste, the bathtub and the shower were worth spending hours just relaxing. We had a little terrace and they were very kind... More

The location is truly romantic and well placed for those wanting to visit Tuscany. The rooms are more than comfortable and original. The decor keeps with the tuscan tradition yet with very modern bathrooms.The huge renovation is trully succesful. We spent three nights including NYE and had an excellent stay. The NYE meal and wine were refined and of excellent... More

Villa Armena Relais and Beauty Farm (hotel) - It isn’t possible to convey what a delight it was to stay at Villa Armena. We were treated like family by Edoardo, his wife Elena, and Edward’s mother, the incomparable Laura! We arrived early one afternoon after a drive from Roma. The drive to the villa from the main road is absolutely... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of our honeymoon. We were expecting this to be our highlight moment. Fail! Despite Tuscany will remain the highlight of our honeymoon, Villa Armena failed to deliver on it's promises. Upon arrival we were impressed by the location and the hotel itself. It is a wonderful old building rebuilt with a modern taste.... More

We started our Italian Honeymoon with a three night stay at Villa Armena, and we are so glad we did! Eduardo and Elena greet you at the door, and are so friendly and helpful from the beginning to end, but they also let you have your space which is nice as well. It's best to have a car, as the...
