Bonus for Friends of Rick Steves: A bottle of our wine, and a taste of pecorino cheese upon arrival

Borgo Argenina is a charming and exclusive Country Hotel in Tuscany in a tiny medieval hamlet, surrounded by Chianti Classico vineyards. The view from the terrace and the garden is simply spectacular. It's the ideal place to relax and learn more about Tuscan traditions and the history of the region. Your host Elena came to live here 15 years ago, and having fallen in love with the area, decided to purchase and restore the ruins of this little village. Together with her two dogs, she will welcome you upon your arrival with a good glass of Chianti.

In her traditional kitchen, seated around the wooden table, she will tell you about possible excursions to nearby castles, historical towns to visit, and wineries and restaurants where you can best taste the delicious food and wine of the region. Upon request she will cook dinner for the guests. ( You can help if you like!!... It will be fun!! ) Borgo Argenina is your perfect home-base in Tuscany: from here it’s simple to arrange daily excursions to nearby Siena, Castellina in Chianti, Radda, Firenze, Montalcino, San Giminiano, Cortona, Montepulciano....Anyway.. don't worry...just get up and go!!!! Accommodations vary in size and price, including (a) double room(s), (a) double suite(s), and the Little House Villa. Rates, published on our website, are inclusive of breakfast, services, and all taxes.
