Welcome to Borgo Argenina!
When you reach the pathway that leads to the ancient hamlet of Borgo Argenina, our “receptionist dog” Giuseppina will greet you and show you the way to the main Villa of the B&B. Upon your arrival, I would love to share some of Chianti’s fascinating history with you over a glass of local wine, and help you plan your Tuscan itineraries to some of the region’s treasures. We will also schedule your Italian cooking class held in my Tuscan kitchen, where you will enjoy a home cooked meal with other guests.
My special gifts for you:
• My cookbook with my family recipes
• A hand drawn map of Chianti with wineries and restaurants
• A complementary wine tour and tasting at the “I Sodi” winery.
Our guests say that no picture can describe the beauty and peace of Borgo Argenina. Come and discover the magic for yourself!

Borgo Argenina is a small and enchanting medieval hamlet made up of four restored villas dating back to 998 A.D. Nestled in the picturesque Tuscan countryside, our charming villas have stunning views over the Chianti vineyards and olive groves. The name Borgo Argenina derives from the Latin ‘argine’, meaning border. The hamlet borders two breathtaking Tuscan regions – Chianti and Val D’Orcia. Siena is a 20-minute drive away while Florence can be easily reached in an hour. The famous towns of Cortona, Pisa, Assisi, Lucca, San Gimignano offer fantastic day trips.
For wine lovers, Chianti wineries, Montalcino and Montepulciano, home of the exquisite Brunello and Nobile wines, are just a short drive away.
Within walking distance is Brolio Castle, birthplace of the world- famous ‘Black Rooster’ wine.
Borgo Argenina also offers an authentic Tuscan cooking class with Elena in a traditional Tuscan kitchen.
