Villa Armena is not for everyone. We were looking for an idyllic, small, renovated villa with a pool and restaurant in the heart of Tuscany. Tall order, but Armena delivers. If you prefer to stay somewhere closer to Tuscan towns and villages, Armena may not be for you. It's 15 minute drive down a gravel road just to get to...

We have just returned from a too brief a one night stay at this wonderful hotel. The whole of this region is stunning and this hotel sits beautifully in its location. The hotel is up a gravel road that indicates that you will be enjoying some good peace and quiet, yes even with two children in tow. We were greeted...

Loved this place! The owner is extremely friendly and accommodating. The best part of the hotel is the pool! Wish we spent more time here. You need a car to stay here. Plenty to do on the hotel grounds but need a car to get to it and to get to anything else.

We spent four nights here and were pleasantly surprised. There was a very warm welcome from Laura and Eduardo and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is real escape haven if you are looking for a Tuscany hideaway with good access to local attractions. The room was beautiful with great attention to detail. We enjoyed using the unique pool...

We stayed at Villa Armena for 5 nights of our honeymoon in mid-July, 2015. It was such a great stay and we couldn't have been happier with the hotel, or the owners and staff. Located a good couple of kilometres off the main-road and down a particularly fun gravel-road, lined with cypress trees, the Hotel really does feel like it's...

This was our second visit - and our visit with our baby - to Villa Armena, a beautiful restored villa just outside the small town on Buenconvento in the Tuscan countryside. And happily very little had changed - it was still as quiet and peaceful as we remembered, the food was just as good (despite the change in chef) and...

Villa Armena was simply gorgeous - from the rooms, to the grounds, to the delicious wine and excellent service - we couldn't have asked for a better homebase to explore Tuscany. It's the perfect place to relax. The pool is beautiful and so serene. We kept thinking what a great place it would be to have a wedding celebration. The...

Villa Armena is such a hidden treasure. Tucked away in the hills above Buonconvento, the Villa is a true retreat and perfect for a romantic stay. The hotel is very tastefully decorated, the rooms are very luxurious and comfortable, the food is phenomenal, and the grounds are beautiful - including the relaxing pool! We loved our stay at Villa Armena...

What a delightful stay in this most charming of Hotels. The 2/3KM drive on a farm track road only served to enhance the experience! Beautiful peaceful setting run by the most hospitable and welcoming family who are rightfully very proud of their Villa Hotel. Our room was full of character and perfectly presented. The food on both evenings was of...

Our stay at the Villa Armena was absolutely incredible. From the amazing food to the beautiful rooms and accommodations, I would go again and again. The Giacone's hospitality was above and beyond. They even arranged a private wine tasting for us at a nearby vineyard. It is the best way to have a charming, private and romantic holiday in wine...
