Villa Armena has all the luxuries and decor of a boutique 5 star hotel, with the familiarity and friendliness of a family run B&B. The rooms were stunning with lots or mod cons whilst remaining sympathetic to the original design and style of the property. The food was excellent (so good we ate in the restaurant 3 times!) with a... More

A beautiful and peaceful location; a fantastic restaurant (and wine list) a quirky yet wonderful pool make this a haven in Tuscany. Eduardo and Elena go out of their way to provide a truly personal and welcoming experience at this delightful hotel. I cannot recommend Villa Armena highly enough!

If you're looking for a predictable luxurious hotel devoid of emotion or human interaction, i suggest you go elsewhere. BUT if you're looking for the warmth, charm and personality that DEFINES Italy, then i highly recommend Villa Armena. I have stayed with Edoardo and Elena four times, and watched as the property was constructed, understood the details and the vision... More

Personally I found this a bit of a strange hotel, it's more of a b&b with restaurant than a hotel but with hotel prices. Admittedly my view of this 'hotel' is not helped by the fact that the pool was out of action for 2/3 of the time we were staying. Having booked this part of our trip as a... More

We spent a week at Villa Armena Relais for part of our Honeymoon. Based on previous reviews, we had some pretty high expectations of the villa, but in reality, words don't do the place, people or setting any justice. The Building itself is a listed building which has been renovated to the highest standards; the quality of the rooms and... More

We just returned from traveling Italy for a 2 week honeymoon. From the US, we travel internationally annually, and our travel tends to include cities and beach. We added 2 days in Tuscany at the last minute, and regret that we didn't stay longer. Villa Armena was perfect. The grounds are beautiful, expertly landscaped and well maintained. Its hard to...

Together with Elena we thought long and hard about what to reply to you dear PierreTilff. In the end we decided that the best answer for you was going to be not to reply anything at all. Just PLEASE do keep your word and do not consider us ever again for your holidays. Thank you. Edoardo & Elena More
