My husband and I stayed at Villa Armena for four nights in early September. We had the best time. The Villa is beautifully restored with modern amenities (and fantastic housekeeping morning and evening) and makes the perfect base from which to explore the area (Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza, etc.) The owners - Eduardo, Elena and Laura - are amazing and try so hard to make your stay perfect. Their care sets this villa apart from all others. A perfect example is the story of our first evening at the villa - after a mishap in Florence and arriving late to the Villa and finding out that the restaurant there would be closed during our stay due to a death in the chef's family, Eduardo offered to have his wife Elena cook us dinner along with two other guests in the restaurant while Laura (who acts as the sommelier) served us and hand picked an excellent bottle of white wine for us from the region to enjoy with dinner. It was truly like being cared for by a lovely family and fed in their home. We loved Tuscany and were so sad to leave. It was definitely the highlight of our trip and we visited some great cities - London, Amalfi Coast, Rome, etc. We wish we lived closer so we could return more often! We hope to be back soon.
