“Great experience again”
Reviewed May 27, 2011

After 2 years we have come back to this place. Same great location with even better service now. Stefanie has now a helper and she is much more willing to cook dinners than she was 2 years ago. This time even weather was on our side. Simply ideal countryside vacation (... with some little jogging too).

We stayed at Fattoria Armena in November, not the best weather time, and had a wonderful time. The ONLY negative was the weather. It did not allow us to take advantage of the beautiful property as we would have liked. We hope to return in a warmer month.

Fattoria Armena was a fantastic place and Stefania and Alessandro and their son (we only met 1) were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in IL Leccio, which is a 2 bedroom apartment. I booked this even though we were only a couple because of the views from the windows and I am glad we did. It was a great apartment and I loved looking out the windows. This might not have been so important in warmer weather where you could enjoys the views from the outdoor spaces set up to relax and enjoy. The pool looked especially beautiful, I could imagine myself floating and looking out the infinity edge at the hills and valleys. The apartment itself was very comfortable.

The family makes you feel like family. We were invited to join them for dinner in Montalcino with friends of theirs also staying on the property. It was one of our best dinners in Italy and was planned and prepared by their son. It is easy to see that he gets his cooking talent from his mom. We did end up at the last minute booking a cooking class with Stefania. My husband has already used all of the recipes he learned for family meals. Along with being delicious the experience was a lot of fun.

There is nothing negative to say and if you want a great, beautiful place to use as a home base in Tuscany or if you want a place to just hang out and relax this is the place to stay.

For us a plus was the animals and the delicious wine and olive oil left for us as gifts.

This was truly a memorable holiday. The accommodation was excellent and the hosts and their family were very helpful and welcoming. The area is as I imagined the Tuscan country side. From the infinity pool, you could imagine yourself swimming off into the hills. Fattoria Armena is easily accessible from major airports, yet it is far enough from the town of Buonconvento to feel you are in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. A lovely experience.

We recently stayed at "Fattoria Armena" and had a most wonderful week with our daughter and her partner. It proved an excellent base to explore the whole area and for day trips as far away as Florence were easy driving. The highlight for us however was the wonderful views from the pool area and the sunsets and rises were the best we can remember seeing.

We elected to have the dinner with Stefania and Alessandro ( My Italian brother !) what an experience that was , I think we had a little too much of the farm wine ! See if you can have a little sip of the homemade lemoncello it is excellent. We wished we could have brought little Abebe ( Baby Horse) home with us as he is a treasure. PS The just pressed that week olive oil is a lasting memory for us as we have a little every other day!! Thanks Again Stefania & Alessandro for making this week the highlight of our Eurpose trip. Much Love David & Gina from Brisbane Australia

Lovely location, lovely place and most of all lovely hostfamily. Stefania and Alessandro make you fell like at home. We stayed at the apartment Il Leccio and it was very clean & comfortable. Our boys ages 3 and 6 loved farms animals, in particular the dogs:-) And the pool area was well-groomed and perfectly suitable for children. And you should definitely ask Stefania to cook - she is a great cook!

My friends and I spent a week at Armena and had a wonderful experience. It is a beautiful spot in the Tuscan hills and the pictures don't do it justice. The pool and surroundings were spectacular. Stefania was the perfect host. She greeted us with a bottle of win and a basket of apricots from the trees on the property. She would go to extra lengths to make our stay perfect by making reservations for us at restaurants and even took as to a local auto shop when we had a mishap with the rental car.

There are three units on the property. We stayed in the largest which is 3 bedrooms. There is no air conditioning but we had fans and it is very nice at night so it was not a problem. It was very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect. We were very close to the town of Buonconvento and from there you can take trains to other cities if you do not feel like driving. We took the train to Florence and it was only one hour and 45 minutes. It is also very easy to get to Sienna.

The problem with Armena is you don't want to leave. We had several days were we just relaxed around the pool and enjoyed the peace of Tuscany. Thank you Stefania for sharing this lovely place.

Various members of our family arrived from Australia to stay at Fattoria Armena for the last 2 weeks of July in glorious summer weather.
We celebrated the wedding renewal vows of my brother & sister-in-law. It was the best ever location, perfect accommodation, very clean & comfortable, wonderful views & easy access to very beautiful towns in the surrounding countryside - Sienna, Montalcino & Pienza were some of our favourites.
Stefania & Alessandro are the loveliest couple, very welcoming & nothing was too much trouble – they prepared the most wonderful ‘Feast’ for our celebrations & organised the most startling fireworks to finish off the evening!
On arrival the complimentary bottle of wine was much appreciated along with their own olive oil to add to our meals – plus many meals at the Osteria in delightful Buonconvento!
A great place to sketch, paint, read, swim, eat….we loved our time there & I hope to return one day.
