My partner and I have just returned from a magical holiday in Tuscany, in Chianti - staying in the idyllic ‘Argiano’.
Argiano really gave us the full experience of Italy. The friendly staff are great, very welcoming and helpful in suggesting local places to eat, making reservations for us. All recommendations were fantastic as we thoroughly enjoyed the Tuscan cuisine. The staff gave expert advice on local activities and excursions, again booking for us, allowing us to simply relax!
Reaching Argiano in our hire car was a breeze. Approximately 10 kilometres from Siena, it is conveniently situated for our day trips such as visiting other villages, admiring the Tuscan architecture and spending time in Siena.
Every other day was spent at the lovely pool with recliners set amongst an abundance of olive trees and a beautiful garden.
In the evening our private courtyard was wonderful for a glass of wine, provided by and produced from the vineyards in Argiano in Chianti. The wine is superb, and with such an atmosphere and beauty of Argiano you simply let life go by.
The views are simply stunning from apartments and pool of the Chianti countryside.
Our room had a gorgeous beamed ceiling, and terracotta floors with a private courtyard and lemon trees. Also, an extremely comfortable bed and excellent bathroom.
It was so tranquil that we are planning to go back as we felt it was our first holiday where we truly felt relaxed.
I now understand how people say Tuscany is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
I can't wait to go back to Argiano - I miss it!!!
