We wanted a centrally located venue for our visit to Tuscany, so we chose Borgo Argenina, and it did not disappoint. Fortunately for me, my friends had stayed here previously, and their recommendation was excellent. After staying here for several days, I would not stay anyplace else in Tuscany. This is the perfect venue for exploring the region. Whether you...

Don't even waste your time looking for another property in this region. Do yourself a favor and stay here as long as you can. The location is a movie set and the people are lovely. If I go back to this area in Italy, I'll stay here again, and I never stay in the same place twice!!!!! Book it now.

I first visited Borgo Argenina 17 years when visiting Italy with my family. I never forgot about it, remembering it as one of the most beautiful places I had ever been. Destiny brought me back to Italy to live as an adult, and I dreamed of returning with my husband. We finally made it over Easter weekend, and it was...

We stayed at Borgo Argenina with our 4yo boy for 6 nights mid April and it was lovely. Elena warmly welcomed us with a smile and a wine, and made us feel at home. Elena was always available for questions (of which we had many), and the friendly staff and relaxing environment really helped us detach from the race of...

The minute my family and I arrived here, we realized that this place is not described to its fullest when you book it online! The buildings, the gardens, the interior, everything is absolutely amazing and with perfect authentic details everywhere. Elena is very warm and welcoming and her dogs and cats are making the whole place seem like home. Our...

We stayed at Borgo Argenina in late March after an Adriatic Cruise and tour of Verona and Lake Como. Elena Nappa was an outstanding host in many ways: (1) she opened up the B&B a week ahead of her official opening for the season based on our schedule, (2) she invited us for a home cooked dinner for our first...

Cari Bill and Kathy, Thank you for coming. As first guests of the season , you brought us new enthusiasm and energy. So nice to spend time with you and I'm sure you will come back sometime. Thank you for the review and for the kind words about Borgo Argenina and my beloved Tuscany. A presto Elena

My girlfriend and I stayed during the summer of July 2016. The host, Elena, really makes this place a treat. She is sooooo authentically Italian, it's fantastic. She runs her villa with her two staff, and the building and rooms really are lovely. Lots of stonework and nice touches are everywhere. There is a nice vegetable garden out the back,...

My sister and I stayed at Borgo Argenina in July of 2016. I had scoured the Internet looking for the perfect place for the two of us to stay for our first visit to Tuscany, and my 50th birthday. The photos found on Borgo Argenina’s website hardly do it justice. It is so picturesque! We spent a few evenings and...

Three nights here, wonderful location, wonderful hostess. Perfect place for exploring Tuscany with a central location. For sure need a car to access easily and explore from here. Do the cooking night with Elena--your experience may vary depending on the other company, but she is the focus!

We spent 13 days at Borgo Argenina and thoroughly enjoyed Elena’s (and the Angels!) hospitality and friendship!

In Chianti there are so many more things to see and to experience, a lifetime is not enough! I always suggest to my guests to slow-travel-in-the-Chianti-zone!
