We spent 2 nights in this wonderful place, it was amazing !!! Views of the vineyards were just like in the Hollywood movies 😊 Elena was a great host, her local area map was very informative to explore the wine region. Her suggestion on the local restaurant Locanda del Tartufaio was wonderful, we had an amazing Tartufo dinner extravaganza. Her... More

Dear Janan, I look forward to welcoming you here again at beautiful Borgo Argenina for a longer stay! While I have a two-night minimum, I recommend my guests a longer stay. I have been opening my doors to travelers since 1998 and I have found that once travelers get here, and experience the special character of the Chianti countryside, they... More

We had a wonderful 5 night stay in July towards the end of an 8 week European adventure. It was so lovely to stop here, actually unpack out bags and just surrender to Tuscany and all her beauty! And what an amazing place Borgo is to do just that. We had a wonderful room (I think it was a suite)... More

Thank you dear Ann, It’s a joy for me to hear from you and that your stay at Borgo Argenina in Chianti was lovely. Borgo Argenina is a tiny and enchanting medieval hamlet on the top of the hill, made up of four restored villas dating back to 998 A.D. Nestled in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, it's...

Main reason for going was to experience Elena's cooking class. Gave owner (Elena) the dates 2 months ahead of time. When I called (to announce when I would arrive) she told me that she could not arrange the cooking class (and we could not cancel stay without loosing 2 nights deposit!). Also there is no restaurant so she sent us... More

I am sorry that your stay at my B&B did not fit your expectations. When I was unable to offer the cooking class on your arrival day, I offered it for the next day and you declined, saying you had other plans for the next day. You were trying to fit a lot into a very tight schedule. Normally I... More

Put away your maps and travel guides.

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!
