Villa Armena Relais and Beauty Farm (hotel) - It isn’t possible to convey what a delight it was to stay at Villa Armena. We were treated like family by Edoardo, his wife Elena, and Edward’s mother, the incomparable Laura! We arrived early one afternoon after a drive from Roma. The drive to the villa from the main road is absolutely...

We stayed in this hotel as part of our honeymoon. We were expecting this to be our highlight moment. Fail! Despite Tuscany will remain the highlight of our honeymoon, Villa Armena failed to deliver on it's promises. Upon arrival we were impressed by the location and the hotel itself. It is a wonderful old building rebuilt with a modern taste....

When staying in Tuscany for the first time it can feel a little tricky to pick the right spot. Such is the romantic image the region conjures up that you perhaps want those long views that graduate at sunset, to stay in a proper villa and be close enough to some interesting places to visit.
