How to Get There
A 5-star luxury hotel located on top of a hill with a beautiful view of the valley below. A formal hotel attitude which is different from an agriturismo's. Main drawback is the lack of maintenance of the gravel road leading up the hill to the property. Did enjoy our stay and do recommended it if you are looking for a hotel property.
The property is lovely but poorly run. The family seem to try hard but are not professional. If it was a B & B it would rate as passable but the advertising promises much more and it does not deliver. The breakfast is awful, stale croissants, hard unripe fruit, bad coffee in cracked cups. Because coffee was so bad we wanted to make tea but were told we could not have an electric jug in the room and were given a jug of hot (warm) water..
The dirt road down to the parking area is quite treacherous and needs to be taken carefully.
There is no porter.
You get only two pillows.
The air conditioning works but is noisy.
It is nice lying by the pool but not good that they have the whipper snipper going while guests are paying to relax.
They need to get a good manager in there to sort out all these issues. Overall very disappointing for such a nice property.
We stayed at the Villa Armena for two nights during a trip around Tuscany. The foundation of the Villa is amazing, it has truly charming, beautiful interior and a fantastic setting. However, current operations are seriously lacking. The drive along a gravel road seems charming, but the road is in a bad condition, actually a risk to your car unless you have an SUV. The room was beautiful but the sink and the shower were clogged and smelling badly, there was no fridge, just a sign "we're sorry", three coat hangers but none for trousers, etc. The pool is unique but the maintenance guy apparently preferred to keep the water cleaning system open so there was always a loud noise in the background, breakfast was fine, dinner was mixed, likely as they have a very young cook who is there by himself.
So overall it seems like an amazing place which is just not well managed and maintained.
We just left Villa Armena and we’re super sad to go! Villa Armena is an otherworldly place! Food is excellent, the hosts are incredibly nice and welcoming, the atmosphere is wonderful, authentic and cosy! A fairytale in Tuscany!
-Located in heart of beautuful Tuscany and very close to Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Siena..all within 10-30 kms..
-Beautifully restored centuries old Renaissance villa with attractive furnishings, modern conveniences (elevator, A/C, cable TV and strong WIFI, walk in rain shower and separate tub, dual wash basins....) and spacious rooms.
-Our suite was large with very comfortable king bed, and beautifully furnished.
-Staff were very helpful...portered our bags to the room and brought them down at checkout; parked our car...room was made up quickly while having breakfast...
- Laura was especially helpful in the restaurant.
-Breakfasts could have had wider selection of items (fruit was whole apple or pear but prefer freshly prepared citrus, berries..and fresh squeezed juices..) No eggs or omelets offered.
-Bathroom had a large platform in the middle upon which the toilet, tub and bidet were set. You had to negotiate 2 stairs up and down to get to them or the far walkin shower. This was a problem at night when you were a little drowsy and unsure of your footing.
-Long bumpy dirt road to get to the villa. Location is off the GPS grid so you will need precise directions or you will wander about like we did.
On balance, had a lovely stay but given its remote location could be problematic for some. You definitely need a car.
