Our stay at Ancora del Chianti was wonderful in every way: a warm welcome, beautiful views, lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, outstanding recommendations for restaurants in the area and all-around gracious hosplitality. We felt very much at home and Laura truly made us feel like old friends. Perhaps best of all, it was a paradise for children! The owners' children proved themselves to be as welcoming as their parents, and my son and daughter could not have been happier, playing with them in the tree house in the olive grove. Very happy memories indeed, and we look very forward to our next visit. Thank you for everything!

Dear Laura, We loved our visit at Ancora and only wish our stay was longer. (And the weather was a bit warmer, but of course you can't change Mother Nature. ) You helped assure our stay was positive with all the personal touches: a note marking our rooms waiting for us upon arrival, the delicious treats made my Ingrid, the tips and suggestions for excursions given with detail, choice and even a bit of intrigue, and your commitment to run an eco-friendly establishment. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. We sincerely hope to return soon or in a few years.

We spent 5 days at this wonderful B and B. The views from the top of the hill where we were located were stunning. The mist a couple of the mornings was beautiful and the grape harvest was going on, it was wonderful. We were welcomed and shown our room, in the evening, had a wonderful breakfast outside before each busy day. Recommendations from Laura were wonderful, where to drive, where to eat lunch dinner, wineries to visit, places to go. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. Each room in the B and B has it\'s own character. There is a wonderful kitchen available and the wine they make at the B and B is also available. Would definitely go back. There is so much to see an do in the area, also easy to get into Florence. Returning each evening to Ancora del Chianti was like coming home, relaxing and quiet once you got up the bumpy dirt road. The entrance made it all the more interesting and fun!!
Ciao siamo Lorenzo e Valentina, siamo stati ad Ancora del Chianti questa estate in moto...è stata una vacanza fantastica. Il posto è meraviglioso e la cordialità unica...abbiamo trascorso una delle serate più belle di tutta l'estate in questo posto stupendo, una sera abbiamo deciso di farci da mangiare nel cucino, poi ci siamo messi fuori, su un tavolo di legno a mangiare la nostra pasta con una bella bottiglia di vino rosso e il tramonto sopra le colline della toscana...un momento magico...grazie mille per tutto

Dear Laura & Filippo, thanks for the beautiful week we had in October at your place. The room, the view, the silence , the breakfastmoment with the cake made by Ingrid, lying in the hammock , you have created a beautiful place to stay and enjoy. Although it is already some weeks ago we still thinking with a lot of pleasure at that time with you. Wishing you and your family all the best and hope to see you again in the coming years. Monique, Christel and Simon

Liebe Laura, lieber Filippo, die Woche bei Euch wird mir ewig in Erinnerung bleiben. Die Art, wie Du, liebe Laura, die Gäste empfängst, Sie während des Aufenthalts begleitest, mit guten Tips zur Seite stehst, ist unvergleichlich. Ich habe mich von Anfang an wie zuhause gefühlt, aufgenommen bei Freunden;-) Der Kochabend mit den regionalen Weinen war einer der Highlights meiner Woche. Gäste vom B&B und Freunde von Euch vermischten sich zu einer homogenen Gruppe. Man hätte meinen können, man kennt sich schon ewig;-) Ancora del Chianti ist ein Ort, an dem man zu sich findet und den Alltag und Stress schnell vergessen kann. Die Landschaft, die friedliche Atmosphäre, der sensationelle Ausblick ins Tal und die gegenüberliegenden Weinberge, die Olivenbäume vor der Haustür, die Liegen und Hängematten, wo man herrlich entspannen kann, habe ich so noch nie vorgefunden. Ancora del Chianti ist ein kleines Stück vom Paradies, dass Ihr Euch, bzw. Euren Gästen erhalten habt. Vielen vielen Dank. Ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder und werde Euch überall weiterempfehlen. Herzliche Grüsse Eure Maren aus der Pfalz;-)))

Where do I begin! Ancora stole my heart. Breathtaking views, charming rooms, beautiful trails to explore, and Laura; the warmest person im Italy . She and Filipo were so welcoming and accommodating , and made us feel their home was our home. I came with a group tour this trip, but will surely bring my husband back for a longer stay. Thank you for making my first trip to Chianti so special.

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.
