Located in the romantic heart of Tuscany, only 20 minutes from Siena, only a stone’s throw from Montalcino and Val d’Orcia, in a fairytale world exuding magic and beauty, Villa Armena is a late Renaissance structure. Built of red brick, with original oak beams and roof, and having terracotta floors and a beautiful Italianate garden, Villa Armena today is an exclusive establishment with just 10 rooms, each one unique, where service, attention to detail and exclusivity are the cornerstones of our offering.

When we drove up to the hotel the views were stunning and the place was nestled nicely in the countryside. We were greeted and checked in without any issues. When we left our room all the lights were off and nothing seemed open (3.30pm). We were led to believe that this hotel

We were very excited by the reviews and the pictures we saw but everything went down the hill as soon as we checked in. The way to the property from the main road its about a mile up the hill on. dirt road, not bad, but be careful at night. The gentleman who welcome us did not

We did enjoy our stay at Villa Armena and felt that the property was good value for money given the prices in Tuscany. The property has obviously had a lot of money spent on it over the years however we felt that it is lacking atmosphere. Laura is very hardworking and you cannot

Our stay at Villa Armena was nothing short of perfect. Elena and her family (owners) made us feel welcomed from the moment we walked in. Every question about the area or what to do was answered with a smile and an offer to help in any way they could. Laura (local house mother

Dear Philippa thank you for your message. Villa Armena is in Buonconvento, the village right next to Montalcino, home of the famous Brunello. We are pretty much at the heart of the most romantic part of Tuscany, around us you can find Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the one of Sant'Antimo just to name few of the amazing spots you will be able to visit while here. But there is much, much more. You can find a lot of info on our website in the "Tuscany" section. And of course we'll be elighted to assist when you'll arrive at Villa Armena. See you soon! Edoardo

Hello Rbgiggles! You can check many of the daytrips available on our website, at the "Tuscany" page. I wish I could post you the direct link but Tripadvisor does not allow me to do so :-) For any specific enquiry our reception staff is always available for you via email (info @ villaarmena . com) or via phone (+390577808433). They will be delighted to assist you. Kind regards Edoardo

Are there taxis in Buoconvento that will take me and a friend to Montalcino?
Hello traveguy7! In Buonconveto there aren't cabs but we normally call them from Siena or we arrange for a private driver to pick our Guests up from the hotel at an extra cost of course. What we strongly recommend though is to rent a car when you come here as public transportation in Tuscany is very poor.
