Elena Nappa and her staff make her renovated farmhouse feel like a home away from home…if "home" is the picturesque Tuscan countryside. The location puts you within driving distance of many of the most significant sites in Tuscany, but the beautiful views often make it difficult to leave. We also had the cooking lesson, which was fantastic.

Borgo Argenina was excellent in so many ways. It was thee most beautiful place we stayed during our 2 week tour of Italy. Our villa, the gardens and main house was lovely, beautiful and impeccably clean. But Elena made it a special and rich experience....guiding us to great sights, restaurants and vineyards. She takes time to make sure every guest... More

This is a long overdue review but better late than never.

Based on a "you must go" recommendation, my wife and I spent 5 lovely days in late June at Borgo Argenina. This property, which has been beautifully restored, looks and feels absolutely genuine old Tuscany. Located on a hill-top, the views in all directions are exactly what you hope for when visiting the Chianti region. Vineyards of the famous Ricasoli... More

If there is a paradise on earth Borgo Argenina could be the place. We found this jewel in the southern part of the Chianti Region via Internet and were already touched by the warm exchange of emails with Elena. Bongo Argenina is completely restructured and furnished according to the habits of the medieval. Elena cares for every detail both in... More

My wife and I recently spent 9 nights at Borgo Argenina and had a wonderful experience. It's close to all the major sites in the Chianti region and southern Tuscany, yet its located in a very remote area on the top of the hill overlooking miles of vineyards and farmhouses in all directions. Elene tries very hard to provide an... More

It is so nice to here from you. Also it was a pleasure to spend time together at Borgo Argenina. I was really proud of you at the cookery evening and loved to look at all of my guests preparing my recipes. Your son in low was a fantastic cook and made the best sauce ever, stirring all the time.... More

If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay after a day of touring the the villages and wineries in Tuscany, this is it. This was our "home base" with very busy days trying to see and do as much in Tuscany as we could. It was wonderful to return to Borgo Argenina for a peaceful, quiet evening.... More

We recently spent four nights in with charming Elena in Borgo Argenina in the Chianti countryside. Words and pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this place. Borgo sits atop a hill overlooking vineyards and castles in the distance. Elena is but the fourth family to own this 1,000 year old farmhouse that has been tastefully renovated with... More

My husband and I just returned from Tuscany and absolutely fell in love with the area. The scenery is beyond breathtaking. The highlight of our stay was Borgo Argenina. We had a bit of trouble locating it, but it was worth every single missed turn. Before we even entered the door we felt as though we stepped back in time... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of the private villas at Borgo Argenina in Tuscany, Italy When Milanese fashion designer Elena Nappa discovered the rundown Borgo Argenina in Tuscany's Chianti region, she undertook an ambitious project. Not only did she restore the buildings that house the bed-and-breakfast, she purchased and revived the entire hamlet the B&B resides in. Hospitality is warm, accommodations are few (one double, two suites and three private villas) and décor is delicious thanks to the combination of local artisans and Nappa's talents. Terracotta floors and exposed beam ceilings provide the framework for modest, old-fashioned interiors adorned with painted wrought-iron beds, linen curtains embroidered in traditional Florentine style and quilts and cushions handmade by Nappa. Adding to the exclusive personalized experience are Nappa's recommendations for wine tours, area attractions and activities, such as cooking classes with the owner herself. ... more   less
