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 rented one of the junior suites, which overlooked the garden & pool area, as well as a view of the Tuscan hills. The inn is 2 km up an unpaved hill outside of the small town of Buonconvento. Wonderful views, peaceful, quiet, relaxing - everything we were looking for. This made it a perfect spot to relax & unwind after each day of exploring the locals towns & sites.
Eduardo, Elena, Laura, and the rest of the staff treated us wonderfully & were great hosts. Top level service, without ever being overbearing or "in your face".
Although it was not our original plan, we ended up eating in the restaurant each evening. And we're glad we did! The food & service was amazing, and we were excited to try something new from the menu each night. Laura was also a joy to talk to about wine, and we were able to try some new wines during the trip.
The only downside was that we only got to see Franco once!
Thanks again for a wonderful experience
