A beautifully restored 16th century noble home, now a luxurious villa with outdoor pool
In the romantic heart of Tuscany, just 20 minutes from Siena and a stone’s throw from Montalcino, lies the luxurious Villa Armena. This classic villa was constructed during the first half of the 16th century as a country residence for a noble family from Siena.
Built from red brick, with original oak beams and roofing, terracotta floors and a beautiful Italian garden, the property is one of the only exclusive villas in the region to have had such a rich history.
Outdoors, guests can make the most of the Tuscan sun in the large swimming pool, or soak up the rays from the surrounding sun loungers. Throughout the beautifully-landscaped gardens are plenty of spaces to relax, dine al fresco, and socialise with friends and family.
Ideal for relaxing after a day of exploring the beautiful Tuscan region, the villa has a cosy living room with a fireplace where guests can enjoy a glass of wine from the villa’s own cellar. Meals are served in the on-site Sorbo Allegro restaurant.
Each of the 10 bedrooms and suites has its own unique style and enjoys stunning views over either the property’s grounds or the wonderful Tuscan countryside. Every room features precious furnishings, prints, paintings and fabrics.
The villa has undergone a massive restoration and modernisation to ensure that even the most discerning travellers are satisfied. With its spacious grounds and stunning location, Villa Armena is also ideal for weddings and special events with up to 60 guests.

Villa Armena is located in the heart of the Siena region in Tuscany. An astoundingly attractive area, famous for its rolling hills outlined by endless rows of cypress trees, majestic castles, thermal spa towns, tiny Medieval villages surrounded by olive groves, wine cellars keeping the invaluable oak and chestnut casks in which to age world class wine such as Chianti and Brunello.
Nearby is the village of Montalcino, home to the famous Brunello di Montalcino vineyard. It stands on a hilltop covered almost entirely by vineyards, and at its centre stand signature examples of medieval architecture: the Palazzo dei Priori and the wonderful Rocca fortress, built circa 14th century.
Montepulciano, is another charming village in the same area, known as the pearl of the 16th century & renowned for the production of wines such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
Siena itself is one of the most beautiful cities of Tuscany. Set across three hills, the city is drawn together by winding alleyways and steep steps, whilst the Piazza del Campo stands at its heart, and the Duomo and St Maria della Scala serve as additional cultural landmarks.
