We stayed at Borgo Argenina August 2014 and had an exquisite trip. My wife reminds me frequently how she thinks about it daily. It is now the standard we try to achieve with future vacations. We're sitting here planning this Spring Break, thinking about how to approximate the peaceful, perfect experience we had in Tuscany so I decided to write... More

We spent 3 nights in September at this beautiful stone Inn. It has pretty flowers and vineyards surrounding it. The breakfast is great. We had our breakfast outside every morning overlooking the vineyard. Elena is the wonderful owner of this special place. Loved the old stone building, the comfortable feel, and the excellent dinner the guests shared one evening after... More

This was our first trip to Italy and our stay at Borgo Argenina exceeded every expectation we had. My husband and I stayed for a week in October during our 5 week Italian adventure, and this, without a doubt, was our favorite stop and worthy of the highest rating. We stayed in the Picolo Villa which was so comfortable and... More

We were in Italy for 2 weeks in late September. While we were very happy with each place we stayed, Borgo was heads above the rest!!!! Loved everything about it!!

Thinking back to our 4 nights at Borgo Argenina brings a huge smile to my face, as I have such wonderful memories of our stay at Elena's lovingly-restored hamlet.
