If anyone out there is looking for a great place too stay in Tuscany, Borgo Argenina is the place. We stayed here on one of our visits to Italy and truly enjoyed it. It's a little hamlet situated between Siena and Gaiole. This is one of the most scenic places I have ever been. There are grape vines as far as the eye can see. The grounds at the Bed and Breakfast are charming, with lots of vegetable gardens and fig trees. It is truly a magical place.
The rooms are nicely appointed and furnished with antiques. The room we stayed in had a sitting room kitchen combo, a bedroom and a large bathroom with a real shower. The owner, Elena, is very gracious and welcoming. She will recommend some great restaurants, winery tours and anything else you have questions with. She is now doing cooking lessons, which I would really enjoy!
Check out her website, it's very interesting. She also has recipes on it, including her famous Limoncella, which she offers when you fist arrive. I recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing and laid back getaway. The website is www.borgoargenina.it .
