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

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

My partner and I were travelling around Italy for two weeks, and we both agree that Villa Armena was by far the highlight of our Italian experience! We loved our time there, the room was beautiful, every detail had been thought about. Elena, Eduardo and Laura gave us a very warm welcome and were always attentive to our needs. For... More

We spent two nights last week at the Villa Armena and we really enjoyed our stay there. Everything is perfect! - The villa is gorgeous, the owners made a great job there: they rebuilt the entire villa mixing tradition and modernity inside.

We had a wonderful stay! Everything from the food to the people were perfect. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with lots of amenities. The staff recommended a winery near by where we had a private tasting. We can't wait to go back!
