TripAdvisor Review Eindhoven - Nederlands
The B&B is on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards (at the heart of Chianti). So, the garden view is enticing if you want to have your wine and just relax. The way that goes to the hotel is bumpy and narrow. Half way through you might start to think you must be going in wrong direction. But keep on going, you will like what you find at the end of the road! At the time we made it to the B&B, we found a small cute note on our room door welcoming us and wishing a pleasant stay. Our room was very well decorated, plain but rustic chic. Laura (the owner) is a very friendly lady and attentive to your questions. She takes the time to help you out with your questions for tips to see around in Chianti. Also, she recommended us two restaurants and we very much liked both. At breakfast, they offer home-made cakes, besides some usual stuff. The location of the B&B was very convenient, but you definitely need a car. Otherwise, you cannot make it to the hotel (no public transportation). It was in them middle of Chianti and very close to Florence (only about half an hour trip by car). Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. We will definitely come back again.

We spent about a week here and had an absolutely wonderful time. Laura is a great host. She is very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the private wine tasting she arranged for us at a winery in Radda in Chianti. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. Very rustic, Italian setting, overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Cypress trees, olive groves and vineyards... the property was beautiful and well maintained. Breakfast was quite basic, but delicious. Their home-made cakes were divine! The common kitchen was well equipped and clean. They also had a stock of beer, wine, biscuits,canned food etc at very nominal prices. In fact, the food prices were similar to prices at the supermarket in Greve. Florence was not so far away(around 30 mins by car) and driving around Chianti was a wonderful experience. It was a perfect Tuscan holiday for us! We would definitely come back! However, if you don't have a car (and a navigation system!), it can be hard to reach.

A very pleasent stay in the heart of Chianti! You can, amongst other "activities", find a relaxing environment with a nice view from a gently swinging hammock to slow you down. The room we got was very convinient, clean, cool and quiet. Nice breakfast. A perfect place to explore Tuscany from. Best thing last: the hosts, Laura and Filippo, and their personal and friendly way to treat their guests. We hope come back.
In vostra compagnia e a casa Vostra sembrava di vivere in una poesia di Neruda! indimenticabile!!
TriAdvisor Review - Cathy Naples and US
This is a beautiful B&B just outside of downtown Greve. It is a bit of a bumpy ride to get there but totally worth the effort. The views are fantastic. The property is large and peacefull. It is very clost to Greve and an easy bus ride to Florence. The breakfast was fantastic every morning and Laura was a wonderfull hostess. I even bought one of her beautiful purses. I highly recommend this B&B for a peacefull getaway.

My wife and I just spent five nights at Ancora del Chianti as part of our honeymoon and highly recommend staying here if you plan on visiting the Tuscan countryside. Laura, our host, really made our stay a very personal and pleasant one, from the welcome notes and wine when we first arrived, to spending an hour with us explaining the Chianti region and things we could do, to introducing her friends with whom we could take Tuscan cooking classes, take a winery tour, or taste some local olive oil! Thank you Laura! The map and restaurant recommendations were great and very helpful too. The B&B is well located close to Greve so the main sights in Chianti are very accessible. It is also about midway between Florence and Siena, which made for easy day trips. The house and rooms are warm and comfortable, and Laura and her family have made it a point to live sustainably. Breakfast was simple, with homemade cakes every morning, and served on a lovely terrace. If you're lucky enough as we were, there was a wine festival in the nearby Panzano that was quite the experience! 15 euros for a wine glass and unlimited samples of wine from the surrounding wineries. This was our favourite part of our trip and we have only good things to say about Ancora. Thanks again to Laura and the family :)

Ammetto di essere molto gelosa di questo luogo, trovato per caso su internet 5 anni fa, e in cui non riesco a non passarci almeno annualmente qualche giorno. Gelosia dovuta al fatto che se tutti sapessero della gentilezza, delicatezza e pace che si trovano qui, non basterebbero 200 stanze. Per quanto mi riguarda, è diventato come una casa di famiglia, o di un parente, in cui ti senti bene accolto e coccolato. Una casa di vacanza in cui sei sempre il benvenuto e in cui c\'è sempre qualcuno che si prende cura di te. Il caffè? Ma vogliamo parlare dei muffins e delle torte servite a colazione? Anche il solo fatto che i proprietari cerchino di rendere tutto bio-compatibile ed energeticamente sostenibile (ed è per questo che anziché lampioni al parcheggio ci sono torce fotovoltaiche), non è da poco. Ben vengano la stradina sterrata, il parcheggio poco illuminato e le indicazioni scarse. Se "chi cerca trova", qui trovano tantissime cose, cose che a volte non si possono descrivere a parole. Ma come qualcuno ha scritto "il paradiso è solo per pochi". Le indicazioni sarranno scarse, la strada sarà sterrata e il parcheggio "poco illuminato" ma ne vale la pena 10 a 1.000!

Ci siamo fermati solo una notte, ma la casa ci é sembrata bella in un contesto naturale fantastico. La colazione ci é piaciuta e la proprietaria ci ha fatti sentire come in casa con la sua gentilezza e il suo calore. Per arrivarci bisogna percorrere circa 1km e mezzo di strada sterrata dove abbiamo incrociato un capriolo e due cinghiali selvaggi (percorrendola durante la notte). Buon soggiorno anche se breve.
