We had a great time at this establishment. The room was well maintained, clean and roomy. A lot of time has been spent to maintain the Tuscan charm of the buildings. We stayed at Borgo Argenina for eight days. In hindsight, it we have been better to book a villa and be somewhat self-sufficient. The buildings are set in a... More

Borgo Argenina was tranquility for us! The views are incredible. Sit, relax and sip some wine while you watch the sun set, placing a golden hue over the majestic hills. After the crowds and the hectic pace of Rome, Venice and Florence, the beautiful hills and the slower pace of Tuscany reset our souls! Elena made us feel so welcomed,... More

Thank you dear Jeanne. I'm glad to hear from you and know that you were happy here. Let me know about your new pasta machine. I'm sure your family will love homemade pasta with ragù bolognese! See you soon for more recipes! More

Don't even waste your time looking for another property in this region. Do yourself a favor and stay here as long as you can. The location is a movie set and the people are lovely. If I go back to this area in Italy, I'll stay here again, and I never stay in the same place twice!!!!! Book it now.

We just returned from Italy and a four night stay at the lovely Borgo Argenina. Driving the scenic route from Florence treated us to some of the most beautiful views we've ever seen.

The Borgo Argenina is everything you think about when you rent a Villa in Tuscany. My wife and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else and can't wait to return to Tuscany and will definitely return to Borgo Argenina. This is Tuscany !!!

The location was fantastic. Incredible views of the rolling Tuscan countryside greeted us each morning and evening. With Elena's knowledge of the local villages, restaurants, wineries, etc., there was always a unique place to day-trip or catch an incredible evening meal. She has done a wonderful job of transforming these old country stone structures into a warm and charming welcome... More

Dear PeggyJohn, Thank you to describe our life at Borgo Argenina and to love my place. I also loved to cook mamma’s ragù with you and to make homemade pasta. Someone called it noodles.

My husband and I stayed with Elena following 3 busy days in Florence. What a wonderful contrast this hillside haven provided. Natural beauty of the land, an incredible refurbished hamlet, and hospitality galore made this the perfect spot to day-trip from. Elena provided a great map, suggestions of routes and restaurants, and plenty of history to boot. Perhaps the highlight... More

Dear Howie, Thank you, I love your comment! Borgo Argenina is in Chianti close to Brolio Castle, birthplace of the famous wine Chianti Classico. Chianti is the ideal region to visit the traditional Tuscany with its hamlets, castles, monasteries, and rolling hills covered in vineyards. Since the second world war its charming landscape attracted many artists from all over the... More

Lovely countryside and villa. Tuscan farmhouse meets industrial modern decor. Very charming. Proprietor Elena is a unique and gifted hostess, cook, and historian. A great way to experience the Tuscan countryside and get a reprieve from hectic city touring.
