Stayed at Borgo Argentina in May with my husband & we loved every minute spent there. Perfect location for travel to wineries & sightseeing. We even changed our plans so we could stay an additional night. Elena is a wonderful host with knowledge of places to visit & see.

PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 November 2016

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.

My husband and I just recently stayed at Borgo Argenina for four nights while we explored Tuscany. We had an unforgettable trip with Elena at her beautiful Tuscan retreat. I looked forward to waking up to the delicious breakfast buffet every morning, and the cooking class was one of our favorite things we did in all of Tuscany. We love...

We stayed at Borgo Argenina for 3 nights, midpoint of our trip in Italy. It was exactly as we imagined. Amazing views, beautiful surroundings & perfect setting. Elana, the owner / host, was lovely. She had a welcoming personality that made us feel right at home. She spends time with all of her guests giving the lay of the land...

If you want the most beautiful, romantic view in all of Italy, this is it. Stop looking and come here. This is the real, uncommercialized Italy you dreamed of. The owner, Elena Nappa is a national treasure. She is passionate about her corner of parafise and will tell you how to find her secret Italy. Tiny hamlets, like the one...

Words cannot effectively describe Borgo Argenina! You must go to the website and read about how this B & B came to life. I'm on a "girl trip" for 2 weeks and we started in Munich Germany, then Venice, than Florence Italy and Borgo was our rest stop before Rome. So far the view from Borgo Argenina is more amazing...

Can't say enough about the wonders of Borgo Argenina. This was our 2nd visit and we will most likely return again, especially as we missed Elena's cooking class this trip! Idyllic setting with rooms and villas beautifully furnished with interesting artifacts and all modern conveniences. Three of us stayed in spacious, airy & comfortable Villa Oliveria, enjoying both the private...

Your first thought as you drive up the hill towards the beautiful centuries-old stone buildings is, "I can't believe this is where we're staying." But the real magic of Borgo Argenina sets in when you arrive at the top of the hill and see just how immaculate the buildings and grounds have been restored and maintained. Although these buildings were...

We wanted a centrally located venue for our visit to Tuscany, so we chose Borgo Argenina, and it did not disappoint. Fortunately for me, my friends had stayed here previously, and their recommendation was excellent. After staying here for several days, I would not stay anyplace else in Tuscany. This is the perfect venue for exploring the region. Whether you...
