Mr Patrick from France
with
“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.

Have fun watching all submission that cover different aspects of a holiday in Tuscany at Ancora del Chianti BB. You will find a lot of breathtaking views from the garden on the south side you will see the villages of Greve in Chianti, Montefioralle, Panzano and Lamole; on the nothern side you find Impruneta, San Casciano Valdipesa, the Apuan Alps and the Appennine on the back. The view from the hill is so clear that in wintertime we can see the now on the top.

Another popular subject is our garden itself: both for the variety of flowers plants and wildlfe and both for relaxation in the garden. Apparently relaxing in the garden is our guests’ favourite activities. Our confortable hammocks are their best friends.

Ancora del Chianti is also a reputated location for painting holidays at a Tuscany farmhouse and the studio, the garden, the fields and the view are very inspring. We host sucessful painting and drawing workshop with internationally recognised tutors. Check now our updated calendar.

We congratulate Nathalie for this colourful sunset on Chianti Classico hills and she wins 2 complementary nights at Ancora dl Chianti Eco BB & Art Retreat in Tuscany in 2017.

This year we received a lot of photos and they show different aspects of our guests’ holidays in Tuscany in 2016 at our bed and breakfast.
Taking advantage of the BB’s convenient central location, they combined a visit to main art cities of central Italy as Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Arezzo, Cortona, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno while enjoying pleasant country strolls in the scenic Tuscany landscape as Chianti area, Val d’Orcia and the Tuscan sea coast. They also loved to relax in the garden and admire the view from the hilltop, enjoyed our atmospheres and…our yummy breakfast cakes.
Some of them refer to art painting classes and full immersion watercolour painting courses as part of art and painting workshop that we host every year and make Ancora del Chianti BB a unique location for Art and Yoga Retreat in Tuscany.

Many thanks to Nathalie and all our guest for all their entries

The winning picture represents Sangiovese vineyard covering the top of the hill on the way to Ancora del Chianti Eco BB. You can also see the village of Greve in Chianti in a distance. This captures a peculiar aspects of the Tuscan hills that you can appreciate during your holidays in Chianti: a pleasant landscapes after centuries of human shaping.

A deep connection to beauty and the past times for future challanges to come…

This is why walking in the vineyards or simply relaxing in the garden, immersed in the beautiful Tuscan landscape, is regenerating body and soul. Listening to the sound of your steps and the singing birds, smelling the morning dew on the soil and the herbs and grass under your feet, it will make you feel in contact with nature and with your inner self.
