Room ok but A/C was intermittent. We were both bitten in daylight by MOSQUITOS by the "Natural" pool that was like an insect breeding pond. We waited 20 minutes for a beer here, frustrating after a long drive up the 2K dirt track. The menu in the restaurant was PRETENTIOUS and SAD. Laura, the owner's Mother now runs the hotel...

The air conditioning worked great, as I showed you in the morning, but anyway we could change their room to solve this problem; however we could not solve the problem with mosquitos, since we are on the country side and the problem does not depend on our will. If you did not like the menu, I do not see what...

We had a 3 nights stay in this charming property. Do not be deterred by the long dirt road leading up to the hotel - once you arrive you will be greeted as if you are coming home. The owner Laura was so lovely and attentive to us, making our stay very comfortable. The villa is beautifully restored.The room was...

We originally planned to stay at Villa Armena for only two nights but extended our stay because we loved the hotel so much. The hotel is an old villa, beautifully restored and re-designed four years ago and equipped with everything you need to enjoy today's comfort (such as beautiful bathrooms). Still, they managed to preserve the charm and feeling of...

We spent 5 nights in Villa Armena. Overall we had a really lovely stay. Our room was spotless, breakfast was delicious (especially the crossaints and homemade juice) and the pool area was so nice and quiet. A special shout out to Laura, one of the owners who goes out of her way to make every guest feel welcome and at...

We ❤️ Italy & had always dreamt of holidaying in Tuscany, what we didn't think was possible was to find a 'Home' & a 'Family'. Directions lead us through the Italian countryside, taking in the marvellous views we drew a close along a small country lane; at the end of the rainbow 'Villa Armena' in all her glory. The Villa...

This place made my holiday in Tuscany just perfect, as it was my stop in Tuscany and i went to visit so many places from that point.

We stayed for 7 nights in June. We were made very welcome by Laura (I think the owner) and the other staff. They were very accommodating to our every need. The setting: down a country lane just after Buonconvento. Very secluded - typical Tuscan! I had read reviews complaining of the access road, but it was totally fine and actually...

Villa Armenia is a wonderful hide away at the end of a long gravel drive in the most beautiful surroundings possible. The villa has been lovingly restored to an exceptional standard and the garden / environment reflects the surrounding abundance of nature. The pool is a natural small 'lagoon' spring fed to read beside and cool off in, a joy...
