Villa Armenia

Once the home of a noble Siena family, the beautifully restored Villa Armena welcomes wayfarers from all over into the heart of charming Tuscany.

The 16th-century residence, represented by My Private Villas, a luxury property owner club with estates all over Europe, offers a luxurious country experience complete with fine dining facilities and a 65-foot outdoor pool. While the villa boasts a classic red-brick build with terracotta floors and stately oak-beam roofs, contemporary updates like chromotherapy showers and flat-screen satellite television make it a top-notch, modern day destination.

  • Square footage: 12,960
  • Weekly rate: About $54,958 (€42,000)

Number of rooms in suite: Ten bedrooms, plus a reception, two living areas, one restaurant and one bar; guests can rent the entire villa (minimum three nights) or book individual suites.

Number of baths: 11

Suite style: Classic-contemporary hybrid of refined elegance, characterized by vivid colors and handcrafted furniture, de- signed by Italian mastermind Elena Foccoli

Key selling points: Each of the villa’s air-conditioned bed- rooms enjoy stunning views of the picturesque property or of lush Siena region landscapes. Graced by scores of precious paintings, the luxe accommodations are generously stocked with Etro bath sets, super-soft linens and state-of-art en- tertainment systems. Other special features include a pri- vate restaurant—serving up scrumptious meals paired with Italian wines from the private cellar—and manicured lawns surrounding the outdoor pool. Both of these expansive areas make the property a perfect retreat for families, parties and large groups.

For all other needs, the dedicated staff of chefs, housekeepers, gardeners, private butler and other personal attendants is well-versed in the art of attentive service that ensures both comfort and security.
