What a wonderful place!! We toured France, England and Italy and Anchora Del Chianti is the place I will remember. From the hearty breakfasts (fresh homebaked breads and tarts by Ingrid)to the uncommercialised beauty of the surrounding tuscan countryside to the warm and friendly hosts - everything was perfect. Be sure not to miss the magnificent sunsets from the hammock and the wonderful service (and food) of Tomasse at the La Bottega del Moro, a quaint restaurant in the picturesque village of Greve. Three days were too short and we hope to be back some day for a much longer stay.

The family who run the B&B are lovely, very willing to help make your experience in the area as rich as they can. Their little suggestions for places to visit in the area and directions were invaluable and their restaurant suggestions were all fantastic for value for money, quality and service. The rooms are very cute, cool, quiet and comfortable. The shared kitchen is great. We used it to make pre-dinner cocktails in the evening. The breakfast's are nice and traditional Italian although some fruit would be a good addition.

We spent six wonderful nights at Ancora del Chianti and enjoyed the company of lovely guests and our delightful hosts. We loved everything from breakfast on the patio to reading in the shade, (it was hot out!), to making day trips in Tuscany. Laura was unfailingly helpful but never intrusive--a perfect innkeeper. We are in Paris now but look forward to returning to Greve. Hold a room for us!

Abbiamo passato un weekend magico, in un posto molto bello con delle persone molto piacevole ed ospitale, immersi nel verde e nel silenzio da favola.

Laura et les autres personnes travaillant au B&B sont formidables. Notre séjour fut des plus heureux dans un paysage extraordinaire. Quelle chaleur et quelle simplicité! Cela restera dans nos mémoires comme une belle rencontre.

Ritrovarsi immersi nelle dolci colline del Chianti, specie per chi ha il piacere di farlo per la prima volta, è qualcosa di inspiegabile e magico. In questa Location meravigliosa "questa casa (che non è un albergo)" è perfettamente inserita nel contesto, curata nei minimi dettagli, ispirata da grande passione. Dall’accoglienza molto ospitale e carica di simpatia di Laura (perfetta padrona di casa), dai consigli puntuali ed efficaci sugli itinerari della Toscana e sui ristoranti della zona. Dalla colazione sostanziosa e dalle torte squisite di Ingrid servite sul terrazzino con una vista spettacolare….che dire ancora, unico rammarico è stato non poterne godere di più, ma non mancherà un’altra occasione. Grazie ancora Ancora del Chianti. Francesco e Gaetanella (Milena)

We had a wonderful week at Ancora del Chianti. The whole place was wonderful with a beautiful garden and a superb view of the area. It was just cozy and during our small trips to see the sights we always looked forward to coming back in the evening because it was so relaxing just being there. Laura was also very helpful in recommending good sights and activities, it was much appreciated. We’ve already recommended Ancora del Chianti to our friends and family and would very much like to go back there ourselves.
Dear Laura and family, We really enjoyed our stay at Ancora del Chianti very much. Your location is simply wonderful, we loved the accomodation and the whole spirit of your place. We like to thank you for your great hospitality and - not to forget - the good tips you gave us for exploring your wonderfull part of tuskany. Best wishes an may we seen us again, Ingrid

"Beautiful and Relaxing Chianti" My husband and I recently stayed two nights during our road trip through Italy. Prior to our arrival, Laura was very proactive in making sure we had directions to the property and offered a selection of amenities to be placed in the room prior to our arrival. We opted for a bottle of the wine made on property and it was absolutely delicious! The property is nestled quite high up showcasing the beautiful Chianti rolling hills. It's also only 25 minutes walk to Verrazzano Castle where you can do an amazing castle tour, lunch and wine tasting. The breakfast was wonderful and Laura was simply full of energy and made us feel like we were at home. Take her suggestions with local restaurants too- she knows what she's talking about!

Hi, just wanted to drop you a quick email to say what a wonderful time we had with you. Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be and more. A truly magical setting and the perfect base to explore the whole area and then return to a peaceful hideaway and enjoy the days purchases! All our thanks Natalie and Philip
Tri Advisor Review - RucksackT Amsterdam _ NL
We stayed here in July 2010 but better late than never in writing a well deserved review for this lovely relaxing place. We stayed here for 3 nights and upon arrival we found our room with a personalized note by the door, which just added that extra touch of feeling welcome. This was consistent throughout our stay. The hosts were very friendly and Laura was very forthcoming and chatted with all the guests and gave her tips about which places to visit in the area. I must say that the recommendations payed off as we found the cutest little wineries, restaurants and visited towns that are off the beaten track. Ancora del Chianti was indeed a little paradise, as another review suggested, and for us it meant relaxation in hammocks, beautiful green surroundings, delicious breakfast, lovely local wine that you could purchase as well as cakes...it was ideal and I would definitely stay there again. It was lovely to just sink into a hammock with a good book and hide in the shade during the hottest part of the day and then travel onwards to cute little towns in the nearby vicinity. Thank you for a great experience. :-)
