My parents and I had the most amazing time at Borgo Argenina! Elena was the best host- very accomodating and knowledgable of the area. We had a wonderful cooking class where we learned to make multiple dishes from scratch, all while enjoying local wine. This was a true, authentic tucan getaway and I cannot wait to return one day!

My husband and I were looking for an authentic, down to earth, Italian experience. Borgo Argenina did not disappoint. Elena Nappa made us feel welcomed and comfortable from the very beginning. The farmhouse dates back to the 800's and Elena loving took five years to restore. It is nestled among the vineyards atop of a hill with an amazing view... More

We had a wonderful visit and wished we had more time to stay. It felt very secluded with a beautiful view. Elena was absolutely wonderful and made sure our stay was comfortable. She gave us a map of the area and made dinner reservations for us (that were AMAZING). We can't wait to go back!

Our 5 day visit with Elena at Borgo Argenina were fantastic. With a beautiful room, (a suite) with plenty of space for two, a beautiful view, and a wonderful host.

My wife and I had the pleasure and privilege of staying with Elena for five days, which frankly wasn't nearly enough. We were already planning our return by day two, which gives you an idea of how special both Elena and Borgo Argenina are.
