"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. :-)
Trip Advisor Review: Maria W Lousanne - Swiss
"A Little Taste of Paradise" When first taking the little dirt road in the middle of wine yards and olive trees we were really asking ourselves where we would end up... I must admit we were initially quite skeptical but when once we reached the B&B it was definitely worth it. The view is breath taking with a magnificent view over the Tuscan hills and castles. During our drive it was cloudy but as we arrived the sun came out and we got enjoy a first glass of wine with some olives in the beautiful garden after having received a warm welcome by Laura and gotten a little tour of the premises (and smelling the roses, woaw!). The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable - maybe just a little cold in the evening but I guess that's due to the temperatures being a little bit lower than normal during our stay (and that was easily fixed with an extra blanket). The breakfast choice was enough with ham, cheese and yoghurts (we ate so much at lunch and dinner that we couldn't have managed to have a bigger breakfast anyway!) - and thanks to Ingrid for her yummy morning cakes! This is definitely a place to recommend for those wanting to enjoy nature and yet being close to many things to see and visit. Of course, if you come here in the middle of the summer, you might miss not having a swimming pool but for us, that didn't matter. We are hoping that we will have the opportunity to come back soon!

Dear Laura, Laura\'s Family and Ingrid, we have been lost in Greve like in some distance heaven. Thank you for your warm welcome! As we think for Ancora del Chianti, it sounds like \"The Enchanted Castle\". Yes, it is! Please, keep this magic so that we could find and taste it again next time! Remember if sometimes in the future you feel tickle, this means that we are thinking about you and the beautiful spirit in Chianti! Hope you\'ll be happy and all the nice people find the path to Ancora del Chianti!!! As a famous singer says: \"24.00 baci\" from us! Emanuela and Kaloyan 16.05.2012
Trip Advisor Review Hungary - Budapest
From Trip Advisor on 13.05.2012: “real tuscan country feeling, nice surroundings, freedom to do what you feel like 5/5 ” we have stayed in may 2012 in this former fattoria, with very nice surroundings and quiet countryside. Close to major tuscan sites to visit, and free to do what yo felt like, without very suggested ways of spending time. Nice house, very nicely renovated. it is a great house to spend quality time at. There is no swimming pool, so those looking for that ... this is not your choice. But for wondering around Tuscany is great:) and a great host:)

Cara Laura, ti ringraziamo per la vostra accoglienza e il nostro soggiorno. La Toscana è magnifica e gli italiani sono molto gentili. "Ancora del Chianti" è perfetto perchè semplice, accogliente (=accueillant) e autentico. Speriamo di ritornare un giorno. (...) Grazie anche a Ingrid ...e la sua crostata...mmm! Arrivederci, Michael e Veronique

Da Trip Advisor: “Spettacolare” Trascorso il ponte pasquale in questo B&B nelcuore delle colline del chianti. Che dire..dopo avere visitato l'Alto Adige in lungo e in largo abbiamo deciso di attaccare la toscana e l'attacco è stato meraviglioso. Posto semplicemente magnifico che gode di una calma inspiegabile. A partire dalle camere, aredate con gusto e sobrie ( non aspettatevi il relais...se volete un relais andate in un relais) ma pouttosto spaziose e curate..sopratutto molto pulite. Laura è un'ospite fatastica...infonde tranquillità come il posto in cui vive...la colazione è pantagruelica....semplice ma sostanziosa...torte fatte incasa..prosciutto caffe...insomma non manca nulla e se volete potete anche farvi i panini per il pranzo (su invito della stessa Laura)..ma dopo la colazione fino a sera no fame. Preziosi i suggerimenti per la cena..i ristoranti che ci ha consilgiato erano ottimi e rapporto qualità prezzo eccellente. Noi siamo stati con i nostri due bambini che si osno divertiti come dei pazzi.A differenza di altri Bed questo ha la strada che finisce...non ci sono pericoli di macchine che passano o di traffico (ne abbiamo visti altri lungo strade che enlle foto sembravano tutt'altro). Che dire...speriamo arrivino altri ponti per potere tornare....diciamo che senza nulla togliere al Chianti pare di essere in una tipica chambr d'hotes francese tanto è curato il dettaglio e l'accoglienza...un dieci e lode!!!!!!

Dear Laura, dear Filippo, what a wonderful new website! It brightens up our lovely memories of your beautiful house and garden. We had a wonderful week at Ancora del Chianti in July last year. We enjoyed it a lot, and some day we will surely come back. We still enjoy the last precious drops of olive oil we took with us last year, and then we feel like sitting on your veranda watching the sun go down :-) Frank and Carmen.
