Borgo Argenina is drop-dead gorgeous, the perfect location to explore Tuscany. The thick-walled buildings and grounds, authentically restored by Elena, seem straight out of a movie. Our room was hard to leave, comfortable and spacious with great window views. Breakfast matched Elena’s great culinary reputation. Make sure to listen to Elena’s local restaurant recommendations, some of our best dining experiences... More

I traveled to Borgo Argenina with my family (a husband and two boys, ages 16 and 11) plus a friend and his three boys, ages 25, 16, and 11, and relatives who are Italian, with their two young boys in August and it's a trip we will always remember. First of all, Elena, the owner, is an absolute joy and... More

This is a wonderful holiday destination. I booked this property for myself and my girlfriend for 4 nights. I have been to Tuscany on several occasions but this was her first visit. I decided to stay here based on the ranking and reviews on Tripadvisor. I can only say that this property deserves its high ranking. Elena who runs the... More

We just got back from our second stay at the beautiful Borgo Argenina and already we are planning our return. Anyone who has spent time in the Chianti region of Tuscany knows how special this part of Italy is; beauty everywhere, good food, good wine, warm, friendly people. We love using Borgo Argenina as our base as we explore Chianti,... More

My husband and I stayed for ten days at Elena's extraordinary, beyond beautiful Bed & Breakfast and felt everything about the stay---the accommodations, the cooking class (Lasagna to die for!), the views, the delicious breakfasts, the charm, as well as Elena's hospitality--all added up to create a heavenly experience. Authentic Tuscany in all its picturesque beauty. Really, really special. Thank... More

My husband and I travelled to Tuscany with my parents (70+) and my two young children aged 5 and 1.5 yrs old in August. I was thrilled with all the positive reviews, but was concerned about no AC or fan in the accommodation. When we arrived we were overwhelmed with the view and the villa where we were staying, stunning!... More

Dear Guest, I’m glad to hear you loved our Villa Olivera and am sorry that you arrived in Italy during the time it was experiencing an unusual heat wave. Typically the summer weather is not so hot in Tuscany. It is usually very cool in the evening, and the authentic, thick stone walls of your villa act as a sort... More

Some people simply should stay home. Sounds to me like nothing would have satisfied Jim H. short of a 5 Star Hotel. How sad. His unimaginative nature, inflexibility and patrician expectations do not suit fulfilling, memorable, joyous, authentic travel experiences. We had one of the best times of our lives staying at Borgo Argenina di Elena Nappa on our honeymoon... More

We had a large group (17) staying at Borgo Argenina. Elena was a fabulous host. Many in our group participated in a cooking class one evening, enjoying working in her large kitchen. Elena's lasagna was delicious. Borgo Argenina's location is ideal. We were staying in the Tuscan countryside, and we were able to go on winery tours and to Siena... More

We are sitting here planning our next visit to Italy and it just wouldn't be complete without another stay at Borgo Argenina with Elena. What a perfect taste of Italy! The views are amazing, the access to all the little towns can't be beat, and cooking with Elena is a must on every visit!!

Borgo Argenina still remains to this day the most amazing place my husband and I have ever stayed. Just last week, I was reminiscing about my conversations with Elena Nappa in her kitchen as she prepared the meals. There will never be another place that compares. It is close enough to make a trip to several wineries in a day... More
