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!! Small, personable and just simply comfortable. The cooking class was so much fun, and don't forget the delicious meal!!! We met and spent time with several other vacationing couples. By... More

What a treasure. When you first see the hamlet on your first drive, it is so exciting... such a beautiful "driveway". You get welcomed by 2 lovely dogs and friendly Elena. She brings you to her kitchen where she gives you Chianti wine and explain you all about what u need/want to know about accommodation and must to see and... More

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. She welcomed us with open arms, as if we were already family, and enveloped us in her care. It's hard to capture in words just how relaxed and comfortable you feel... More

This part of Italy must not be missed. Borge Argenina feels like home. Elena is a wonderful lady. Truly the most wonderful experience possible. Elena makes you feel like family from the first minute you meet her ( and the wonderful dogs). We had many plans to visit a lot of different hill towns while there. However, the area was... More

we arrived to a hamlet of beautiful stone buildings. Then we met Elaina, the creator of this B&B, who took us on a walk through the vineyards while giving us a history of the region. When we arrived back at the main house we sat around her table with some wonderful wine while Elaina drew us a map and gave... More

Borgo Argenina is a beautiful B&B with breathtaking views of Tuscany. Elena is such a gracious host. She makes you feel at home and shares with you information about the area and wineries so you can make the most of you time in Tuscany! We enjoyed cooking with her and spending time with the other guest one of the nights.... More

I can't recommend Elena and her amazingly restored hamlet enough. All the great things the other reviewers have said apply here. Waking up here and taking breakfast on the patio overlooking Tuscany is transport to a fairy book world...except its real here. They prefer and will appreciate cash, even if you book with your credit card. Its a small consolation... More
