We stayed at this villa for 5 nights. The staff were extremely helpful and always made us feel welcomed and at home. Food was excellent. Rooms were extremely clean. Staff were able to speak and understnd English, which was a plus point. Id definitely go back to this villa again. Shuel

This was our second time back to VA; our first trip, two years ago, was absolutely beautiful so we had a bit of trepidation not knowing if our experience would be as good. Fortunately, the rooms and staff proved to be as good as we experienced. Our only let down was the food. While we only ate dinner there once...

We have just returned from 8 days in Italy and by far the highlight of our trip was the 2 nights we spent at this beautifully restored Tuscan villa. Our room reservation was upgraded to a junior suite, to give us just that extra bit of luxury. The bathroom with massive shower and square bath made us feel so decadent....

This hotel was the last stop of our month long trip. We choose it because it looked luxury on their website and had good reviews. We also wanted to visit Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano so the location seemed convenient. The place turned out to be in the middle of nowhere. It’s too far from any towns that are worth to visit....

My husband and I chose this hotel for our honeymoon. It was easy to find and we had such a warm welcome on our arrival. The villa is outstandingly beautiful and it felt like we were a guest in someone's house. The food was beautiful and the rooms were incredible. The attention to detail throughout the villa is exceptional. We...

This is a wonderful place to stay, we came for our honeymoon and this was the highlight of the week. The location is stunning and we couldn't get over how peaceful it was. The detail that has gone into the finish of the building is second to none and it is clear that Eduardo, his family and his staff have...

This is truly a special place. The inn is run by a family that restored this landmark building. From the time you walk into the front door you feel the warmth from the staff and owners. The restaurant breakfast was wonderful and were the dinners. We ate two dinners at the inn, both were amazing. We were upgraded to the...

We spent 5 nights there last week. The property is really lovely and the premises has been beautifully resotred/renovated. As it is a bit remote, you would need to have your own car. If you follow GPS to get there, be very careful as with us it selected a very dangerous wet clay farm road where we got stuck. In...

From the moment you arrive you receive a very warm welcome. We spent 6 days there and traveled the Tuscan country side. The atmosphere is very relaxing, the owners and their staff are a treasure. The restored Villa is unique, attention to detail surrounds every corner. I would highly recommend this delightful experience.

We stayed at Villa Armena for two nights at the beginning of October. The Villa has been restored to a very high standard and is situated in the middle of beautiful tuscan countryside very much off the beaten track. The location is very peaceful but is within easy reach of Siena and many of the famous hill towns of Tuscany....
