There may have been a great chef. and for sure they try their best, but dont think there is a Michelin chef here!!!! It comes across as a house that has sadly lost its way during covid, a wonderful location but terrible cuisine and a lack of investment in essentials like garden lighting etc.. I hope they return to their former glory. In short its more of an average B and B than an exclusive hotel.

We spent 5 comfortable nights at Villa Armena. At our arrival we were positively surprised with a very kind room upgrade: the suite was beautifully decorated in all details and very spacious. The owners were super friendly and caring. We had dinner at their restaurant two nights in a row since the food was super. The location is spot on making it easy to access Siena, Montalcino and Montepulciano. Truly recommend a long stay!

There are many structures in Italy that date back to 1100 and earlier. Some have been well restored and repurposed for the comfort of travellers who want to be surrounded by beauty, enriched with culture and treated like royalty. This is one of those properties. None of this could be possible without people: Helena, the architect of the project, her gracious husband and partner Eduardo and Laura, Eduardo's mother, a sommelier, great host and keeper of recipes I am trying to acquire. I registered for three days, stayed for five and left because I had other commitments. Location is ideal for the Brunello experience in Montalcino, the Pecorino cheese phenomenon of Pieza (look for the shop jammed with eager customers), the compelling hill town of Montepulciano and numerous other Tuscany villages, restaurants and lovely folks. Terrific value, very comfortable and well appointed interior design. The villa is in the beautiful hills just outside the pleasant town of Buonconvento.

We stayed at this amazing family hotel - villa for 3 nights! The place is so unbelievable nice, with a nice garden, and an amazing view. The owners were more than welcome to us, make us feel like home, with a smile and useful information for the area. The room was so beautiful and clean. MANY THANKS to the housekeep from Sri lanka who helped us with the luggages. He was so sweet and nice to us! The food was so tasty, we had dinner there 3 nights in the row and tried almost everything, soo tasty.. Many thanks to Jo the chef and to the waitress she was so happy person 😍 Thank you for making our vacation so nice.. Kisses from Greece and Germany

We stayed for three nights in the villa. This is a lovely country hotel with good facilities and a restaurant. The owners were very helpful and the staff were lovely. The facilities are good, including a great swimming pool. We ate in the restaurant each night and the service, food and drinks were excellent. If you visit I would recommend a car suitable for rough roads becasue there is a two mile road to the hotel that is pretty rough.
