Having just returned from my second short stay at this wonderful hotel I thought that I better add a review. Set in the rolling hill, with clean crisp air and beautiful views. It was a truly relaxing location. The hosts, Edoardo and Elena are lovely people, and really looked after me. Dinner was amazing, with the new chef really creating...

We spent a weekend at Villa Armena and had an amazing time. Edoardo and Elena (the owners) are a fantastic hosts and helped us set up a wonderful day exploring the Tuscan countryside. I recommend having dinner in the restaurant at Villa Armena as the food is delicious and the atmosphere is very intimate. The relais itself is amazing -...

Laura, the owners Mother, was a superb host at this quiet and well presented villa. As indicated by other reviewers, this property is a little remote, but was a good location to explore Southern Tuscany. My wife and I ate dinner once at the Villa, and the food was OK, but not in our top 3 for this 8 night...

We had a wonderful stay for just one night whilst sourcing wedding venues in Tuscany. Laura is the perfect host. We had a fantastic supper accompanied by well chosen wine and a great breakfast. This is a real find and the surrounding countryside of Val d'Orcia is stunning.

If arriving by night don't be scared as it is on the middle of nowhere but totally worth the trip! A beautiful hotel in a beautiful location, when leaving the hotel in the morning the views were amazing! We stayed in a great great room, could not ask for more! Clean, cosy, comfortable! And Laura was just amazing, a perfect...

Other reviews rightly talk about the private location, the amenities, the modernity of the rooms in a historic building, but what made our stay so memorable was the attention paid to us by owner Eduardo, and especially his lovely mother, Laura. Our first room had some issues with the water in the bathroom, but Laura helped us immediately change rooms...

Nestled in the Tuscan country side, this is the perfect place to base out of for your explorations. Not only is it beautiful and serene, but also has some of the best food we had on our trip. The sommelier makes the perfect selections. The bathrooms are so luxurious. All and all, the only problem you will have is having...

Definitely off the beaten path, which was great after the hustle and bustle of Florence. Check in was fast, staff was courteous. Room was wonderful, clean, large and what a bathroom. Bed was excellent, linens of high quality. Walking around the grounds was very calming. Breakfast was great. Would recommend if you want a quiet, out of the way place.

This beautiful old building has been turned into a haven for comfort and fine dining. It is beautifully situated from which to explore the countryside, and as a jumping-off point for visiting Siena and other lovely hill towns. The breakfasts are outstanding, and sommolier/hostess Laura provided outstanding guidance through not just the fine-dining menu and wine list but around the...

We stayed at Villa Armena recently for three nights during the first week of October 2015. Our overall experience was exceptional. Our room was beautifully appointed and it was truly an oasis. The culinary and in-house sommelier experience was excellent and authentic. Laura the sommelier was knowledgeable with her wines, particularly Tuscan wines and, she and Eduardo were wonderful hosts....
