We stayed here for five nights during late July / early August and we had high expectations after all the positive reviews we'd read on tripadvisor. Suffice to say we weren't disappointed! It was one of the most relaxing holidays my wife and I have ever enjoyed. The hotel (although it really isn't fair to describe Villa Armena as such - it really is more like a sprawling country house) is situated in a beautiful part of the Tuscan countryside and, being small as well as some way off the beaten track, is wonderfully quiet and secluded. Eduardo and Elena are the perfect hosts: genuinely warm, welcoming and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble for them and you really do feel like you're staying with good friends in their holiday house. Throw in uniformly excellent meals, from the sumptuous buffet breakfasts to the mouthwatering creations on the dinner menu, and you have all the ingredients for the perfect holiday. The only bad part of our visit was having to leave - but we will be back!
