Arne and Annalisa


Blasippor, Vitsippor and Varlok these are the names of  wild spring flowers that Annalisa sent from Sweden to Chianti.

She has been staying at Ancora del Chianti in the beginning of April. They enjoyed art, food and nature of Chianti and they ofeten had nice walks in the surrounding fields and forest. We both like wild flowers, so simple and delicate.

That’s why once back home she sent me a lovely letter with nice pictures of the typical Swedish spring flowers and left a review of her stay with us.
At our arrival there was a flower and our names on our door, just Laura!! We had some nice spring days at Ancora del Chianti and the beautiful Toscany. The good breakfast indoors around the table together with the other guests we nice. Every morning Laura spent some time with us and there were chats on different subjects. We were happy to have chosen Ancora del Chianti and would be glad to come back, e.g in autumn. If you are planning a visit to Toscany go there! 17 April 2011 Annalisa and Arne”

Jean Luc and Karine after Ancora B&B visit


A lovely surprise we found back home after a few days of holiday: a lovely card from our Castello di Volpaia favourite café “Bar Ucci”. It was intriguing and …..finally we discovered that our friends Jean Luc and Karine from France who stayed at Ancora del Chianti B&B 3 years ago, came for a visit and before leaving they left this card.

Alain and Marie at Ancora del Chianti


When Alain and Marie stayed at Ancora del Chianti B&B last Autumn, Mathilde, their daugher was very proud of her new camera and wanted to take a picture of us all together just after breakfast. This is her job and a review of their stay at the bed and breakfast they send us.

” …En ce qui nous concerne, nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans  votre demeure et avons beaucoup apprécié votre accueil et votre belle  région, la  Toscane.
Malheureusement c’est toujours trop court pour pouvoir tout  visiter… Alors  nous reviendrons, peut-être, une prochaine fois?!…
Au plaisir de vous revoir, à bientôt.

Marie, Alain, Louis, Mathilde & Thibaud”

Ingvar and Elna’s Greetings


from Ingvar to Ancora del Chianti

In September we had the pleasure of welcoming Ingvar and Elna to Ancora del Chianti B&B. We had a lot of to share: love for nature and furthermore…music. Infact Ingvar as my husband Filippo, plays in the band of his village: in this case the Philarmonic Band  in Skummeslövsstrandin Halland County in the south of Sweden. This is the proof!
