“Ancora del Chianti B&B: your secret place to relax on holidays”
Many thanks to all the partecipants for their contributions.

The atmosphere of this picture taken in the garden of Ancora del Chianti is inspiring relaxation, peace of mind and charm. We are happy to share these emotions with our guests

Our guests often report that travelling in Tuscany is not just visiting. It is a combination of living history through impressive art and monuments, tasting and learn to cook amazing food and wine, partecipating to local events, strolling in old country villages, working more intensively with on art residency and meeting local people.

After such busy days, their mind and soul are so full of images and emotions that deserve a special, silent and peaceful place for relaxing and regenerating: letting the emotions flow and dissolve in harmony with nature.

The picture above is capturing this exact moment in the scented garden of Ancora del Chianti B&B surrounded by lush vegetation, admiring a breathtaking view.

Are you ready to enjoy?

Mr Patrick from France
“Ancora del Chianti: Silent Lightful Emotions in Tuscany”

We congratulate for this impressive sky at sunset in Chianti and Patrick wins 2 complementary nights at Ancora dl Chianti Eco BB & Art Retreat in Tuscany in 2018. We look forward to meeting him again and thank personally for the great job!

The picture is taken a few step from our bed and breakfast on our favourite walk to the upper hill on Collegalle Mountain separating Cintoia Valley from Greve Valley. Walking in the countryside during your holidays in Tuscany is a regerating experience because of nature, silence and view. From our B&B you can enjoy easy walks in the morning with birds singing and sun rising or prefer the golden light of sunset when the air is still and the day is fading, waiting for the perfect moment, before the mountains hide the sun. It is always an enjoyble experience!

We thank to Patrick and all our guest for all their entries
about the B&B and their Visit in Tuscany, now on our Flickr Page.

The view from the hill is so clear that in wintertime we can see the now on the top.
