Can I establish a VPN to a Microsoft Azure Virtual, using a site to site connection, and then map the virtual machine to a drive letter on a local PC?

This is absolutely possible, but there is one problem that you could hit.

Many ISPs block port 445 outbound, and this will prevent you from being able to access the drive. This is a common problem for Azure File Share. Depending on your ISP, it might be possible to contact them and have the block removed.

If you have any specific questions, please let me know.
