Eduardo and Elena greet you at the door, and are so friendly and helpful from the beginning to end, but they also let you have your space which is nice as well. It's best to have a car, as the...

Villa Armena is a perfectly appointed Tuscan getaway located right outside of Buonconvento and only 20-25 minutes from Montalcino. We truly had a lovely stay at the property and Eduardo, Elena, and Laura all went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

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...

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. You want to get it... More
