Close your eyes for a moment and imagine walking on a carpet of soft grass between rows of cypress, maritime pines and olive trees. The air is fresh, the sky a perfect shade of blue, and the sun gently caresses your skin with its warmth. All around you ... a many-coloured multitude of roses ... Welcome to Villa Armena! A magical place where your senses will come alive.
Villa Armena, Buonconvento, is in the heart of the Crete Senesi. An astoundingly attractive area of unsurpassable historical interest, Buonconvento - whose name derives from the Latin "bonus conventus" meaning a good-natured, fortunate community - is a member of the prestigious "Most Beautiful Villages in Italy" Association.
Imagine age-old villas, country houses, monasteries and abbeys.
Imagine endless rows of vineyards that seem to chase each other over the hills.
Imagine small groups of olive trees, so close to each other that they seemingly protect and caress each other with their long branches.
Imagine hundreds of cypress trees competing to reach that small cloud floating in the sea of blue above them.
Imagine all that and, after a glass of Brunello, a local farmer's greeting, and the innocent smile of a local child, you'll fall hopelessly in love with this small, humble part of the world where the sun remains warm and the air fresh and delicate.
