Chianti: beautiful B&B, endless vista and charming towns


Deanna and Laura at Ancora del Chianti

“Dear Laura,

First we wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your beautiful B & B and all the fond memories of the Chianti area.

It is such a lovely part of Italy with its endless vistas and charming towns and truly friendly people like yourself.

Secondly, we wanted you to have a picture we took of you before we left.  You are such a beautiful lady with a truly winning smile. Enjoy and warmest regards.

Mille Grazie, Richard & Deanna, Arizona, U.S.A.”

Ancora del Chianti: “Beautiful and Relaxing” for TA


Before sunset at Ancora del Chianti

Published on 14th June by Lindsey (UK) on Trip Advisor:

“Beautiful and Relaxing Chianti”
My husband and I recently stayed two nights during our road trip through Italy. Prior to our arrival, Laura was very proactive in making sure we had directions to the property and offered a selection of amenities to be placed in the room prior to our arrival. We opted for a bottle of the wine made on property and it was absolutely delicious! The property is nestled quite high up showcasing the beautiful Chianti rolling hills. It’s also only 25 minutes walk to Verrazzano Castle where you can do an amazing castle tour, lunch and wine tasting. The breakfast was wonderful and Laura was simply full of energy and made us feel like we were at home. Take her suggestions with local restaurants too- she knows what she’s talking about!

Thanks to Malcom by Azienda Agricola Sagrona for the beautiful picture.
