We stayed at Villa Armena for 4 nights and fell in love with Tuscany here. Villa Armena is the most welcoming and hospitable place we have ever stayed. Eduardo, Elena, and Laura went out of their way to make us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The food in the restaurant is superb, we ate here every night and were extremely well looked after by Laura who guided us through the wine list, teaching us about local wines in the process.
Elena organised a wine tour for us in Montelpuciano and recommended a great thermal spa for us in Bagno Vignoni. The wine tour was absolutely fascinating and I'd highly recommend it for seasoned wine drinkers and complete newbies like us!
I'd say a car was essential for getting the most out of the local area as all the small towns are 30mins-1 hour drive away, but the local roads are very good and it was easy to navigate around. We visited Montalcino, Pienza, Sienna, Montelpuciano, San Quirico Di Orca & Bagno Vignoni during our short stay and we don't feel like we scratch the surface of what the area had to offer.
As the other reviews point out, the hotel is impeccably well appointed. We were luckily upgraded to a suite (room number 1) and had lots of room in the huge room, the bathroom was magnificent with a stand alone bath and huge power shower.
We couldn't of wished for a nicer place to start our married life, or nicer people to deal with than Eduardo, Elena, and Laura. We wouldn't hesitate to recommended Villa Armena to anybody travelling to Tuscany.
