Borgo Argenina Sketch
Karen's Review Of
Borgo Argenina:
Borgo Argenina has all the elements of a “bestseller” bed and breakfast: the perfect location in the heart of Chianti surrounded by vineyards, very comfortable accommodation in an ancient stone farmhouse, glorious countryside views, and, above all, Elena, the Borgo Argenina’s gregarious hostess. She left behind a successful fashion business in Milan and bought an entire abandoned village, restoring two of the stone houses for herself and the bed and breakfast. She chose the best artisans in the area and literally worked with them to create the house of her dreams. Everything from painting stenciled borders in rooms through restoring furniture to sewing quilted bedspreads was executed exclusively by Elena herself. The downstairs living rooms and breakfast room are beautifully done in rich cream and soft yellows that complement perfectly the brick-vaulted ceilings and terracotta floors. Elena is up at dawn baking cakes for breakfast and makes occasional dinners for the guests accompanied by classical music. Every little detail has been attended to in the pink-and-blue bedrooms adorned with white eyelet curtains, patchwork quilts, and dried flower arrangements. Across the way is a very comfortable three-bedroom, independent house.

When we arrived after the gorgeous drive on the curving roads through the vineyards, the dogs, Pasqualina and Guiseppina quickly ran up to greet us like long lost friends. Elena leaned out of the second story kitchen window, and uttered the first of her warm, loving welcomes. We were in Chianti at last! We soon quickly discovered that we had found a home away from home. Elena offered hugs and kisses, then a glass of Chianti, and a seat at her kitchen table, while she chatted with us as she c...

Borgo Argenina: A Karen Brown Recommended B & B Borgo Argenina Review

I found Borgo Argenina about 7 years ago in your guide, before she became famous. We decided to return there this September before continuing on to Liguria and Piedmonte. We arrived on September 25th and on September 26th my Wife fractured her right leg and was taken to Florence by ambulance to the Hospital. She remained in the Hospital for 8 days, where she was operated on, and we returned home on October 6th. When I left the ’Borgo’ on the 27th, Elena helped me cancel the rest of my Itin...

Dear Mr.Moret,

I’m so sorry but I was unable to re-rent the nights you had booked a few months before you came. I had held your reservation in good faith and turned away multiple other reservation requests for those same nights in advance of your cancellation...Since you cancelled the...
