We stayed at the Villa Armena for 3 nights. It was as pretty as the pictures, maybe more so! Many lovely decorations, fine furnishings, fine linens, and spacious bathrooms with all the latest fixtures. The views are great too! We also enjoyed the pool one afternoon ....very relaxing. The breakfasts were wonderful, great to look at and of course to... More

Wonderful relaxed and quiet place with fabulous attention to detail in the decor of the rooms. Gorgeous big bath and high quality sheets, towels all the little things. It is away from the world up a track which is great if you want some quiet time with lovely views. The restaurant is very nice but I was not a fan... More

I stayed here for two nights with my partner and you cannot fault this place. Everything is catered for, with touches of perfection... right down to the tea lights that adorned the garden steps. We had the chefs tasting menu for dinner on our 1st night and the treats kept coming; each mouth was flavoursome with a perfect wine recommendation... More

A rare combination of thoughtfulness and effortless genuine hospitality, this is what Villa Armena is all about. The result is the feeling that nobody but you and your loved one exist when you are at Villa Armena. You truly unplug from the ordinary and breathe like you might rarely do. Located few minutes from the splendid Buonconvento, Villa Armena welcomes... More

My partner Jeff and I just arrived home from a great trip to Tuscany but the highlight of our trip was staying at the beautiful Villa Armena. Our room and bathroom were amazing with beautiful yet functional design touches. This centrally located family run hotel is ideally situated for day trips to see all the hilltop villages and scenery but... More

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.
