borgo argenina




















































just one view from borgo argenina, there are many beautiful views!
a bed and breakfast in the hamlet of chianti classico in the tuscany region that truly felt like home. borgo argenina is the place to stay if you want to really experience what it is like to live in the beautiful countryside of tuscany. my little family and I fell asleep to the crickets chirping and we woke up to the aroma of homemade coffee cake. we toured the surrounding villages and we would come back "home" to take an afternoon nap on the comfiest beds ever. we would sit on the patio in the morning and listen to the swallows sing and in the evening we'd come back again and watch the amazing view transform itself before us during that golden hour. thanks to elena, the woman who lovingly restored borgo argenina, we now have a memory that will stay in our hearts forever.if you would like to know more about borgo argenina, please go here.

I was planning on going to India this Christmas, but now I see Tuscany, which must be beautiful in any season.

Loved your description.

So very beautiful!
Aren't European beds the most comfortable!? Why aren't ours like that?
