We discovered Fattoria Armena in 2004 and we have been drawn back, occasionally as a couple but mostly as a family group, almost every year since. Fattoria Armena works for us as the perfect place to relax because it offers something for all the members of our family. There are a number of different sized apartments, all tastefully conceived and well equipped providing space, both inside and out, to allow the children to be themselves. There are private areas for family meals with plenty of shade and a tastefully designed pool in a 'holiday brochure' setting complete with stunning views of the Tuscan hills. The children particulary enjoy visiting the animals every day and having opportunities to make friends with other children.
The Saraceni family, Alessandro, Stefania, Jacopo and Giulio are the most considerate hosts, never intrusive but always warm and friendly and ever helpful and supportive should the need arise.
