• Piccola Villa is the perfect setting for a romantic honeymoon, or for a 3-person family. Nestled into the heart of the Chianti region near Siena, Piccola Villa is located in the small village of Borgo Argenina, dating back to 998 A.D. and was originally used as a pigsty. We renovated it to transform it into a cozy 80-mq home, decorated in traditional Tuscan style. The Villa has a private garden with breathtaking views of vineyards and olive groves - Breakfast is included. Cooking upon request
Piccola Villa is the ideal ‘Home Base’ in Tuscany, to experience Italian hospitality and cooking class.
Your vacation into the heart of the Chianti region will be full of surprises and amazement. Every day of your trip will be a highlight to add to your book of memories. Chianti region is simply enchanting: stunning landscapes, scenic driving, rolling hills covered in grapevines, small stone villages, ancient castles and monasteries… delicious food and wine.
Every day after breakfast, we are happy to help our guests plan their itineraries: day trips to the main towns, best scenic roads to drive, wineries to discover, best restaurants to taste local specialties, hilltop towns to explore, walking or biking tours in the charming Chianti countryside. We’ll give you our Piccola Villa’s hand drawn by map of Chianti and Val D’Orcia to guide you on your adventures.
Our hamlet is at the border with the Val D’Orcia region, another beautiful region of Tuscany. Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano, Cortona, San Giminiano, Volterra, are just a short drive from the Villa, and a visit to these towns makes for a memorable day.
At the end of each day you will come back to your “Tuscan home”, happy to sit on our terrace, watch the sun set over the vineyards, and chat with fellow travelers about your beautiful day over some wine. It’s La Dolce Vita at our hidden 'Paradise'!
Piccola Villa is surrounded by vineyards Chianti Classico and olive groves. The guests are used to walk everywhere through the vineyards with our dogs Giuseppina and Pasqualina. There is also a nice vegetable garden where to enjoy sitting there and to pick seasonal vegetables.
Parking and Wi-Fi are free. No problem..Just come!

'A Taste of Tuscany’
Our cooking evening in the Main Villa, is an exciting experience that is not to be missed.
You, the guests, will become chefs for one special evening, as I teach you how to prepare a traditional Italian meal. We will then enjoy the feast together!
We will cook together in our spacious Tuscan kitchen, chopping vegetables, garlic and onions, making pasta and cakes around the large wooden table, mixing eggs with sugar and flour and stirring my mother’s ragù on the stove.
While preparing the meal and chatting with other fellow guests, you will also enjoy unlimited Chianti wine!
It is a delightful way to make new friends, share a great meal and have some fun.
