We were two nights this charming restored mansion of the 16th century and we loved every minute. From the unique design , stunning landscapes surrounding it and the lovely landlady named Laura. Located on a hill, the road leading to it magical. The room we got was lovely, giving the feeling that you're back in the 16th century. Bathroom amazing... More

Suite is great view. Foods are excellent. Lora is such a great person, responsible and caring. Remote setting but great view, very peaceful and lots of space. Ms. Antonella is a very kind, assertive person. We got pur rooms upgraded and we stayed on the same floor. It felt like home staying there. Nice to use as a base seeing... More

We spent just one night here and I so wish it had been longer. The building has been decorated and fitted out to a very high standard. Our room was spectacular, with a glass-walled bathroom taking up about a third of the huge total space. The setting and views are amazing. As many others have commented, Laura is absolutely lovely.... More

We loved our stay at Villa Armena. We were lucky because the hotel was not fully booked and they gave us a larger suite upon arrival. Our room was very nice and comfortable with an incredibly large and modern bathroom. Laura, the owner's mother, took really good care of us during our entire stay. She prepared beautiful breakfast buffets in... More

We loved the Villa which has beautiful fabrics and furnishings but the highlight was a superb dinner with wonderful wines selected by the very gracious sommelier Laura. She was also the brains behind the enormous renovation. She has created a very relaxing and elegant retreat. Or sincere thanks.

Having just returned from my second short stay at this wonderful hotel I thought that I better add a review. Set in the rolling hill, with clean crisp air and beautiful views. It was a truly relaxing location. The hosts, Edoardo and Elena are lovely people, and really looked after me. Dinner was amazing, with the new chef really creating... More

We spent a weekend at Villa Armena and had an amazing time. Edoardo and Elena (the owners) are a fantastic hosts and helped us set up a wonderful day exploring the Tuscan countryside. I recommend having dinner in the restaurant at Villa Armena as the food is delicious and the atmosphere is very intimate. The relais itself is amazing -... More

Laura, the owners Mother, was a superb host at this quiet and well presented villa. As indicated by other reviewers, this property is a little remote, but was a good location to explore Southern Tuscany. My wife and I ate dinner once at the Villa, and the food was OK, but not in our top 3 for this 8 night... More

We had a wonderful stay for just one night whilst sourcing wedding venues in Tuscany. Laura is the perfect host. We had a fantastic supper accompanied by well chosen wine and a great breakfast. This is a real find and the surrounding countryside of Val d'Orcia is stunning.

If arriving by night don't be scared as it is on the middle of nowhere but totally worth the trip! A beautiful hotel in a beautiful location, when leaving the hotel in the morning the views were amazing! We stayed in a great great room, could not ask for more! Clean, cosy, comfortable!
