Laura and Filippo are pleased to welcome to Ancora del Chianti Eco BB & Art Yoga Retreat in Tuscany, a Chianti Bed and Breakfast for couples, family, groups and solo travellers.
Our challenge started in 2000 when we moved from the city of Florence to the hilly countryside of Greve in Chianti looking for a life-style in contact with nature, silence and beauty. At the same time we decided to open our house to guests from all over the world establishing a family bed and breakfast and acvitely promoting sustainable tourism for our family and our guests. Year after year we have restored the main house, the barn and the venue for art, yoga and meditation. Together with the restoration of the building, we also took care of the garden, the vineyards, the olive grove, the orchard and the fields creating a pleasant enviroment immersed in nature for family and guests.

At the Bed and Breakfast Laura personally decorated the country style interior of the property and re-designed the panoramic garden. She looks after the guests and follows their stay with every detail. She is happy to recommend tips for restaurants, excursions, events and local activities as wine tours in Chianti, oil tours with tasting, food & wine experiences. Ancora del Chianti BB with the luminous studio is also a very convenient location for art and yoga residential seminars and retreats and Laura offers her best assistence for organising art, yoga, meditation, creative writing and photography workshops. Finally for guests wishing to combine a relaxing holiday in Chianti with a vibrant escape in the heart of Florence historical centre, she can book for you a fully equipped apartment just a few steps from the Duomo and the train station: "Guelfa56".
In spare time, Laura is a hobby artist and keen reader. Watercolour and sketching are her challanges. Recently she became sewing addicted creating colourful hand bags. At Ancora del Chianti B&B Filippo devotes himself mainly to vineyards and olive grove producing organic wine and olive oil. Plus he is a passionate trumpetist in the Banda Filarmonica “Giuseppe Verdi” of Panzano in Chianti.

Since 2000 so much has changed and there are more plans for the future years to come, but one thing has remained constant: our enduring spirit and the desire to create and preserve a simple and pleasant setting in harmony with nature for all the guests who decide to visit us and for ourselves.A stone hilltop farmhouseclose to the main city of Florence and Siena with spectacular viewover the valley of Greve in Chianti but at the same time quite secluded where beauty, silence and natureinvite to relaxantion and inner search.
