My wife and I just returned from a 10 night Italy vacation. Our first time to vist this country. So we felt oblidged to visit Rome and Venice along with the Tuscany area. Out of all the places we stayed and saw, Borgo Argenina was by far our favorite! When we come back to Italy, we will make Borgo Argenina our primary destination!
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by her two wonderful dogs. After getting our things uop to the room, Elena greeted us with wine (Chianti Classico!) and provided us all the information we could want, on places to visit in the area, along with local eateries. All of her suggestions were great!
I also HIGHLY recommend doing a cooking class with her! It was a lot of fun, and the food was magnifcent! (we did two dinners with her) By far the best meals we had while in Italy! And we also recieved a cook book with many reciepes from the Tuscany area. We can't wait to try them all!
The B&B is a beautifully rustic experience. Not TV, which was great to get away, wifi is available if you must find out what is happening in the world. The staff was exceptional, and very friendly. If you want to truly experience the Tuscany area, Borgo Argenina is a must!
