History in the making
The origins of Villa Armena date all the way back to the 16th century, when the noble Malavolti family enlisted the services of Baldassare Peruzzi, one of the most illustrious architects of the Italian Renaissance, to realize their sumptuous country residence in the heart of Tuscany's Crete Senesi.
Some 500 years later, the villa and gardens just beyond the walls of Buonconvento have been completely restored and transformed in to an exclusive 5 star hotel, custom-designed for today's connoisseurs of luxury
Relaxation, Villa Armena style
Villa Armena's traditionally Tuscan bedrooms and suites, with ancient terracotta floors and oak beamed ceilings, contain an exquisite selection of art prints and antique furniture. All rooms enjoy fabulous views of the gardens and the Crete Senesi.
Guests staying in this splendid historic house experience the very best of Tuscany, strolling through fragrant gardens brimming with roses, Cyprus, maritime pine and olive trees, relaxing in the shade of the "Ancient Fruit Area" or, from mid June, soaking up the Tuscan sun by the pool.
Slow food, wonderful wine
For lovers of good food and wine, Villa Armena is tantamount to gourmet heaven. Reflecting the trend for 'zero mile cuisine', the "Sorbo Allegro" restaurant serves exciting Italian and regional dishes prepared exclusively with local products, accompanied by a well-researched selection of wines, produced by those small, independent Italian wineries whose passion for wine goes hand-in-hand with their love and respect of the territory in which it is made.
Who's in the kitchen?
The hotel's talented chef, Carlo Valeri, learnt his art in some of Italy's finest, Michelin-starred restaurants - and you can tell!
Say I do, in Crete Senesi
Its excellent cuisine and stunning location make Villa Armena Relais the perfect setting for a dream wedding in Tuscany.
