"Peaceful, Inviting, Rea Tuscany"Laura is the star here at this lovely agriturismo. She is sharp and cheerful and most informative. We stayed 5 nights with my sister and her hubby and we all loved this place. We had the two (large) rooms on the corner and were able to park right next to our rooms! A nice plus after a busy, tiring day of touristing. It is up a dusty road, but that's great..you are away from the hubub. We went into (Greve) town and took the VERY convenient (frequent) bus to Florence. Brilliant! Pkg is free and very reasonable. Takes you to the center of town. Laura will tell you how. Beautiful grounds, can't say enough about the view of the Tuscan Hills. We had the (separate) kitchen at our disposal, so long as no one else was using it. Everything you need is there. There is home bottled wine, but we liked other wine better. Matter of taste. Laura booked the wine tour for us. Breakfast was excellent with a homemade cake every morning. Ingrid took care of our brkfst service and tidies up our rooms each day. She is a sweetheart, and works hard. Remember her before you leave by showing your appreciation. Rooms were large, comfy yet firm beds. Shower/bathroom is very nice. The only (maybe) drawback was the wifi, you could only get it (and not all the time) out on the patio. No wifi in our rooms. But, hopefully, like us, you only need it to check your email once a day. So this could be a non-issue if you do not care--you are in Tuscany for rest and relaxation, after all! We just had to check with our sick family member back home every day/night. The love and appreciation for this community and terroir is palpable. It draws you in like a warm embrace. You will leave wanting more. We will be back if in the area again. Thank you for a most memorable stay.

Wait till you meet Laura and her staff, they could not have been any more helpful. Breakfast was self serve with cereals, fruit, cold meats and cheese along with freshly baked cakes done daily. This is an ideal location to stay while visiting Florence and Tuscany. The location allows for fast access to the major highway ( although a dirt road ) to Greve where we took the public bus ( recommended ) to the city center ( Florence ) daily. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and cleaned daily. Their are several excellent restaurants near by and the drive to Sienna very picturesque. We would not hesitate returning.

We spent two nights at Ancora del Chianti and wished we could have stayed longer. It is strategically located close to Florence and other scenic places while still situated out in the country. The room was comfortable with its own front lawn and beautiful rustic garden. The breakfast was very good and the provision of a little kitchen for is handy for people wishing to stay and enjoy the tranquility of the farm. Best of all is Laura's artistic touches and her warm, welcoming personality that made our stay memorable. We hope to go back some day.

We stayed 2 weeks and it was great! Ancora is a beautiful rustic house on top of a hill. A truly unique place under the Tuscan sun. It was a pleasure to drive up and come 'home' everyday after visiting the medieval villages on route SS222 (the most beautiful route trough the Chianti). Staying this long in one place gave us the chance to occasionally have a lazy day, read a book in one of the many easy chairs in the garden or in the vineyards, under the olive trees of Ancora, enjoying the views to all corners of the Chianti. (Very central located to all Tuscan highlights!) The owners, Laura and Filippo; where to beginâ€¦ Warm, helpful, prepared to give you the service you sometimes need in a foreign environment. Every morning at breakfast overlooking the charming garden Laura or Sabina shared many priceless tips only a local resident can give you. Where to go, what to do or see. If you like to be independent? No problem, they will never impose! Thank you Ingrid for keeping our room tidy and baking a cake for the guest everyday! Thank you Laura for everything, for giving us 'a home, away from home' for de past 2 weeks. We never met a better more giving and warm host! Philip and Annette - Rotterdam Holland

Came back from Tuscany a week ago already, and I keep trying to fade it all in order to remember objectively...there's no way, trust me...Once the sun kissed you, gentle on the hills, once your lips touched the taste of velvet wine, once you took the moon with you, late in the night, between the olive trees, you will leave your heart there...and with every second you will remember so precisely why you have to come back...This is the place where my soul can rest, where time has a totally different way for flowing, love is sweeter and life richer...Hope to see you soon enough! Tks Laura and Filippo!

"Excellent stay to enjoy the awesome countrysideâ€ I stayd at the Ancora del Chianti Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights and i loved it. The owners are very nice and even took me and some friends to a local celebration (festa del cinghiale). The location is perfect for people who want to discover the Chianti area as it is situated on one of the many hills with a great view over the region. The rooms are clean and spacious and there are common areas with books, beer, vine and so on.

"Le paradis au bout du cheminâ€ Après avoir quitté la route principale en direction de Grève, vous suivez le panneau de signalisation pour emprunter un chemin d'abord goudronné puis ensuite en terre sur + ou - 3 km pour enfin arriver Ã une maison entourée de vignes et d'oliviers, C'est une vue magnifique sur la vallée qui s'offre Ã vous . Laura vous accueille en français mais elle parle très bien l'anglais, l'allemand et bien sur l'italien, elle est de bon conseil pour les visites des grandes villes Toscane et pour les restaurants des environs de Grève. Les chambres sont belles et bien équipées et une petite cuisine est Ã disposition pour garder des aliments au frais ou pour préparer un petit repas. Le petit déjeuner est simple et chaque fois accompagné d'un gâteau fait maison. En ce mois d'avril, nous n'avons pas beaucoup profité du jardin mais en été il doit être agréable de rester dans un transat ou de faire la sieste dans un hamac. Nous y retournerons certainement Ã une autre saison.
