We spend three nights in Villa Armena and they were wonderful. We received a warm family welcome with our bags and car sorted out like a five star hotel. We were escorted to our junior suite (Orlando di Donusdeo) which was one of the best rooms I have stayed in my life. It was a few Euros more than the standard room but it was worth every cent. Complementary drinks followed with Sommelier Laura who took the time to show me around their wine cellar the next day and showed me her own private collection of Barolo.
They have found the perfect balance in Villa Armena; Eduardo, Elena, and Laura are always on hand to help in any way they can but not in your face. Housekeeping is done quietly and perfectly without getting in your way. The food is fresh and excellent from breakfast to dinner all homemade or locally sourced products. The wines are Italian that suit all pockets that has been tasted and approved by Laura. The rooms are quite where you can really sleep but at the same time have all the comforts of a five star hotel. The surroundings are the relaxing and peaceful Tuscan Hills with Siena 20 minutes away. What more can I say?
Will I go back? I haven’t finished discovering Tuscany.........this is my home there.
