Mu husband & I just returned from a 2 week trip to Italy. Top on our bucket list was a return after several years to the beautiful Borgo Argenina. Not only were we not disappointed - we only fell more in love with this lovely "home away from home". After an extremely difficult and long trip to Rome with several...

We recently spent 3 nights at this beautiful B&B. Our hostess, Elena, was so accommodating and helpful. Our room was quite large with a sitting area and large bathroom. Our first night was rainy so all the guests gathered for a cooking lesson and dinner. It was a lot of fun meeting people from different parts of the world. Subsequently,...

Heaven on Earth. My boyfriend and I were referred by friends to stay at the Borgo Argenina while staying in Tuscany. We had planned a ten day trip to Italy working our way from Venice to Rome moving hotels/bed & breakfast locations every two nights to make the most out of our trip. When we finally arrive at Borgo Argenina...

It's really hard to describe an experience so genuine and authentic. This IS the real Tuscany from the late 900's completely restored Barons Mansion to Elena the owner whose greatest desire seems to be in keeping everything possible as it was back in the days this was built. It's in the heart of Tuscany and the perfect place to springboard...

I am really not a B&B fan, partly after a creepy, almost "Friday the 13th"-like experience in Connecticut many years ago, but this one is different. It is entirely different. When you finally get there, and it really is hidden like a treasure, at the end of a gravel road where you would not expect it (or any thing else),...

I had first read about Borgo Argenina in the comments section of an older article on Tuscany in the NYTimes. The comments there convinced us this was a special place and my husband, 21 year old son and I traveled to Chianti to stay with Elena. As it turned out we were the first guests of this season and the...

With so many places to stay in Tuscany, we knew we made the best choice upon our arrival at Borgo Argenina located in Gaiole in Chianti. After days of touring all over the country side, the view from her place was simply the best!! When you think Tuscany...think about staying at Borgo Argenina! The rooms are spacious, clean and beautifully...

Elena Nappa is a gracious hostess with a beautiful sense of style. If you want to experience Tuscany do not miss it. Borgo Argenina B&B is breathtaking. And don't miss the experience of cooking with Elena. It was fantastic.
