Ancora’s Garden

Regenerating holidays at your Chianti bed and breakfast in Tuscany in contact with nature and silence.

A great passion for botany and the advice of friends led Laura to create a garden suited to a dry climate, in continual bloom throughout the whole year, naturally in tune with the vines and olive groves of the surrounding  landscape. Her passion for antique roses, which she has cultivated for a number of years, has also allowed her to add a delicate, evocative touch to the rustic ambiance. The garden also offers a spacious and peaceful area for sunbathing where deckchairs and comfortable hammocks invite guests to experience the “Dolce far Niente” (the sweet joy of doing nothing!). While enjoying your holiday at Ancora del Chianti eco friendly bed and breakfast in Tuscany let yourselves be lulled by birdsong as you casually admire the breathtaking scenery and glimpses of the countryside where historic villas, castles and quaint villages rise between the flow of vineyards and olive groves.

Chianti is one of the best places to stay in Tuscany to enjoy wine and admire wildlife

At Ancora del Chianti – Country B&B and Retreat in Tuscany every season has a colourful gift to offer. The spring welcomes us with fields full of anemones, daffodils, tulips and wild gladioli with a variety of colours and shapes. Wild orchids and the scarlet bloom of poppies are particularly striking, and in May-June the roses overwhelm us with an abundance of flowers, colours and scents. The iris (typical flower of the Chianti countryside) is next to flower alongside the althea which stays until autumn. The summer welcomes geraniums, carnations, an explosion of lavander, and exotic passion flowers. To follow come dahlias, daisies, Jerusalem artichokes and wild amarillys which spring up to surprise us from evey corner. In October nature closes the warm spell with rich flame shades of the vines from golden yellow to ruby red, before re-awakening once more the following Spring.

Not forgetting, of course, the almond trees which announce the arrival of Springtime, the cool summer shade of the walnut trees, the bitter and sour fruit of the mapler tree, the elegant silver grey of the olive leaves, the grand hights of the cypress trees, the bountiful cherry blossom lining the parking area, the golden treats from the apricot trees, the fragrant white and pink flowers of the acacia trees, the full fig trees and the old quince trees. In addition a wide variety of herbs are scattered all around the lawn. Rosmary, sage, thyme, lemon balm, dandelions take root here and there. Nepitella (calamintha nepeta) and mint (mentha pulegio) grow all around, in the lawn, between rocks and along the lanes which guests will easily be able to distinguish even at night time, treading through them under the moonlight, releasing their fragrance with each passing footstep.
