Pros Amazing view across the valley. Lovely swimming pool which was made all the better by the amazing view! The owners Stefania and Alessandro very warm, welcoming and friendly. Stefania was very helpful with places of interest, local restaurants and running routes! We all loved their dogs, particularly Maggie!
Cons Mosquitos!
Local attractions Montalcino, Arezzo, Montipulchiano are nearby towns which are worth a vist.

Pros Location was terrific. Great views. Loved the pool. Perfect for a young family. Owners were extremely welcoming and hospitable.
Cons This is intended to be strictly constructive as we truly enjoyed our stay. The unit could have been better equipped prior to our arrival (i.e. newer and complete sets of dishes, glassware, cutlery and cookware). To their credit, the owners took immediate steps to get us what we needed.
Local attractions Montalcino, Siena, Montelpulciano. We ate at several great restaurants in these towns as well as just down the road in Buenconvento.

Pros We stayed at this lovely place for 2 weeks, and at the end we would like more time here. The host family who also lives on the little farm, is the most warm and carring people you can imagine. We felt welcome and treated like family from the moment we got here. The farm with all the animals, the infinity pool with the most spectacular view, the nice apartment,and did we mention the host couple, Stefania and Alessandro :-) we will certainly be back.

Pros STEFANIA et son entourage, tous très respectueux du rythme de chacun et attentifs à leurs hôtes. Les deux autres familles autour de la piscine étaient charmantes. Le cadre est idyllique pour un vrai repos. Il fut difficile d'en repartir. Nous avons traîné autour de la piscine et dans le jardin, très bien entretenu, après avoir quitté le logement le jour de la sortie. La propreté est un mot d'ordre et le nettoyage et l'entretien commencent avant 7h chaque matin pour le bien être de chacun. Tous les horaires sont bons pour une baignade, celle que j'ai préféré, c'est la matinale au lever du jour.
Local attractions - boire un Spritz en soirée à Buonconvento - - manger avec Stefania des plats préparés par elle-même, un repas gargantuesque - la Trattoria OSENNA à San Quirico d'Orcia était fameuse - Le Vecchie Mura (Terrazza Panoramica, même si la terrasse est complète, ne pas hésiter une seule seconde à y entrer), l'un de nos meilleures repas. - pour se rendre à Sienne, préférer prendre le train au départ de Buonconvento -

Pros Our hosts were so welcoming and friendly. Fattoria Armena is so well restored and loved and it shows. We had our privacy but could also be with other people around the farm and at the pool when we desired. We would definitely consider a holiday there again.
Cons The only annoyance for us was when the guests arrived to stay in the apartment above ours. We could hear every single movement from above and it sounded like baby elephants were stomping around..at this point our peace was shattered to a certain extent.
Local attractions loved the ice cream parlour, the local shops in the local village for all the fresh local produce.
