Perfect just about sums it up. We were there a few days as a couple (me and my wife) and loved Villa armena. The rooms (we had the Ubaldino suite) were very luxorius and the hotell suroundings looks just like the tuscany holliday brouchures. Location was also perfect (car is a must) short drive to sienna and other "must see"... More

What a fabulous setting, and Elena and Edoardo have done a wonderful job renovating the old villa. Every attention was paid to the details on the design and service. Elena was very helpful and scheduled us for some wine tasting tours as well. We stayed 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect for day... More

Amazing energy, spectacular nature, interesting rooms and furniture with particular details, nice people, hospitable atmosphere, relaxing surroundings, one of a kind place. But above all we loved the food, the experience. Wish we stayed more than two nights. The only down side is that my partner wanted to get a massage, during a very hot and humid day that we... More

We felt very spoiled and tended to at this lovely 10-room hotel. The owners along with the mother and cook were so attentive to our needs. We enjoyed a cooking school, and we have a gorgeous room with a view of the Tuscany hillside. Very newly rennovated and quite well done. We want to go back as soon as possible.

My husband Pat & I just returned from a trip to Italy, which included 5 nights at Villa Armena in Buonconvento. We highly recommend Villa Armena to anyone looking to spend time in southern Tuscany.

We just returned from three weeks in Italy, and would have to rank our stay at Villa Armena as one of the highlights. The property is gorgeous inside and out, striking just the right balance between luxury and authenticity.

Having followed Eduardo's ambitious project from the start, I was very much looking forward to visiting the villa over Easter. What I found was a beautifully rebuilt property with lots of character surrounded by great views over the Tuscan hills. Eduardo, Elena and Laura were super friendly and made me feel at home.

We stayed at the villa back in October 2012. The farmhouse has been beautifully renovated. Our room was very pleasant with a modern bathroom. We used the common area just outside our room and felt like we were staying at a friend's place rather than a hotel. The restaurant offered a very nice menu too with great service from the... More
