Borgo Argenina is sheer bliss. The moment you start up the drive-way, you know you're heading somewhere special. There's a serenity and beauty that envelops you immediately. Elena, the inn's world-class host, grows her own tomatoes, squash, and herbs. The gardens line your pathway inside, and two sweet dogs greet you. The property itself is laden with trees dripping with... More

My wife and I stayed at Borgo Argenina for 7 nights in October 2015. We selected Borgo as our place to stay without even looking elsewhere because one of our best friends (who is a world traveler) strongly recommended it. He was right! What makes Borgo Argenina so special? In short, it is like we moved into Elena's beautiful (inside... More

Borgo Argentina is wonderful in every detail. Elena is a great hostess and cooks very well. Her hand drawn map of Tuscany with the cities, restaurants and places to visit is a gift! It's a extremely beautiful hamlet surrounded by gardens and vineyards that make us feeling the real Tuscany. Borgo Argenina is perfectly situated in the heart of Tuscany... More

Everything we had hoped...and more. We had a wonderful room, with beautiful views, upstairs in the main house. Elena's restoration of the property is incredible. Her stories, cooking class, and advice on what to do were highlights of our trip to Italy. Listen to Elena - we only had 2 days and nights there and took her advice on where... More

Thank you. I hope you’ll come for more days next time! There is so much to do and see in Chianti region. It’s mid November and all our guests left. We are by the fireplace and eat bruschetta with new olive oil thinking to you. Thank you to tell everybody “Go to Borgo Argenina!” Elena More

Driving deep into the middle of the Chianti region we pulled into Borgo Argenina and breathed a sigh of relief. This place was exactly what were hoping for and then some. We enjoyed everything from the beautiful grounds, the flowers cascading from the window boxes, the "angels" that served a fabulous full hot homemade breakfast (including fresh out of the... More

We loved our stay at Borgo Argenina! The Tuscan views were beautiful. We stayed in the Piccola Villa and found it to be very charming. Elena was wonderful; she taught us a lot about the Tuscan history. We also took her cooking class where we got to meet and visit with others staying at Borgo Argenina. It was a great... More

A beautiful inn in the heart of the Tuscan region of Gaiole in Chianti. Very relaxing....had a wonderful experience with our cooking class! The rooms are very comfortable and Elena made our stay one that I will never forget. I want to go back during every season to experience the wonderful scenery and this amazing part of the word.
