“A little piece of heaven...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had the pleasure of spending a week at Villa Arbia (group of 8) and found our own little piece of heaven in Italy. On arrival we were astounded at the beauty of the property with Cyprus trees, grapes & figs ripe for the picking. We were warmly welcomed by the owner of the property Roz Conci and provided a tour of the Villa. The grounds are meticulously kept and once Roz opened up the Limonaia Room and Villa we knew we were in for a very special week. The Villa has been beautifully restored and we found the rooms very spacious and comfortable. Everything was spotless, beds comfortable and we had an ample supply of linens. The kitchen was well stocked for our purposes and Estate wines were plentiful! We had the privilege of having a wonderful cook, Carla, prepare dinner for us two of the evenings during our stay. The meal was simply spectacular and prepared with fresh local ingredients. The location particularly suited us as we were able to walk to the quaint town of Pianella for some fresh produce, drinks or gelato; enjoy quiet time by the pool; or tour the wonderful small towns that were minutes away by car. Of course, Siena is also a short distance where it was convenient to catch a train to visit Florence, Pisa, and many other wonderful places for the day. We must also mention what a wonderful help Valeria was with giving tips for areas of interest, directions & tour suggestions….thank you for your help Valeria!
We would like to keep Villa Arbia our own little secret…but of the time we spent touring Italy, Argiano in Chianti was a highlight and we wouldn’t hesitate to return.
Thank you Roz & Bruno for sharing your property with us (and for making our special occasion a memorable one)! We hope to make it back again one day soon!!

We recently returned from our third visit to Argiano, the last time being eight years ago. It has lost none of its magic. The beauty, peace and tranquillity were exactly what we needed. The only thing that has changed was the addition of Valeria, who was there to give any help and advice and who gave us such a friendly welcome and gave us a great recommendation for dinner at Le Pietre Vivi in Montalperti. We had a wonderful week and came home really restored.

Can't wait to go again....

Absolutely perfect! Valeria was so welcoming and helpful, I wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed in the Betulla apartment which had 2 levels with a kitchen and small sitting area on the main floor, and a spacious bedroom/bathroom upstairs. We had a private terrace overlooking the garden that was lovely for a glass of wine and a meal. We cooked dinner in the apartment a couple of times and found the kitchen well equipped for simple meals. Good grocery store, Coop in Siena, only 10 min. by car. The view from the pool is amazing and the property is very well maintained and clean. We hope to return to Tuscany in the future and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Recently returned from a week at Argiano staying in the detached cottage - Olivo. Hard to think of a better place and setting to stay in and explore this area of the Chianti region. Valeria who manages the apartments is extremely helpful and has some invaluable recommendations - particularly notable was a restaurant in nearby Montaperti - Le Pietre Vive. There are so many beautiful villages to visit nearby and wine tasting is of course readily accessible. The Brolio tour is highly recommended but there are also lower key places well worth a look at, such as the small Cantalici producer in Castagnoli just outside Gaiole. La Fattoria Argiano is everything you want and imagine a Tuscan vineyard to be and is highly recommended.

We stayed here with another couple in July 2012. It was a really nice location with lovely views and a nice large swimming pool. Valeria, our host made breakfast every morning, freshly bought or cooked, breads, rolls, eggs, ham, yoghurt, fruit, cakes etc. For about a fiver, eat as much as you like. We ate out most evenings but found the car necessary as nobody fancied the quite long walk back up the hill. Our friends had the room, Mimosa, which had a nice patio area, which led straight onto the garden and pool. We used this for a barbeque, and evening drinks. The location was so very quiet even though most rooms were taken. It was ideal for visiting Florence, Siena and other Tuscan hilltop villages, we particularly liked Pienza.

Room Tip: Mimosa had a nice patio area (no air conditioning)

We stayed for 5 nights. The room was perfect with a small kitchen and had a fully stocked reasonably priced wine bar. From the moment we arrive until we departed our host Valeria was most spectacular. She helped us with everything we needed including a Dr. For me as I had developed a UTI. We enjoyed wine at sunset on our patio at sunset. We both look forward to our return

Great place! We spent a week there in July '12. The apartment (Mimosa) was lovely, the view from the swimming pool amazing and the lady working there (Sig.a Valeria) very friendly and prepared (she gave us very smart recommendations about local restaurants and vineyards).
We would love to go back!
