Villa Armena is a charming small relais located in the romantic heart of Tuscany, only a few miles from Montalcino and 20 minutes from Siena. This 16th-century country residence, designed for the Malavolti family by the renowned architect Baldassare Peruzzi, has been painstakingly restored to become an exclusive hotel and beauty farm combining Renaissance elegance with 5-star, contemporary comfort.
Ten sumptuous guestrooms and Suites, each individually decorated and named after a prominent member s of the Malavolti family, present an exquisite blend of old and new with original terracotta floors and oak beamed ceilings, art prints and antique furniture. All rooms enjoy fabulous views of the estate's gardens and of the Crete Senesi.
Villa Armena has created a verdant giardino di profumi where, early in the morning, guests are likely to meet the restaurant's chef selecting fresh produce for dinner. The Sorbo Allegro restaurant – named after a hundred year-old rowan tree - serves exciting Tuscan and Italian dishes prepared exclusively with local products, and accompanied by a well-researched selection of wines stocked in the villa's cellar.
As in any self-respecting house, Villa Armena has its own living room; a special room where guests can unwind after a long day exploring Tuscany while sipping one of the wonderful "meditation wines." Guests can also relax in the shade of the ancient fruit trees that grow in the garden or lounge in the sun by the striking, free-form swimming pool that is modeled on a sandy beach.
