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!

When at Ancora del Chianti there are a few flakes of snow falling, it is a big event as it is so rare…but looking at this picture despite the quantity and frequency of snowing in Scandinavia, the fascination of snow is still huge.

Lorne and Sue


This a nice message we received from our Canadian/Irish friends, Lorne and Sue who arrived at Ancora del Chianti in the middle of an unpredictable thunderstorm that in a few minute made everything wet. The rain was so strong that the umbrella was useless and the room was the only safe place. Strange way of welcoming guests in sunny Tuscany….but as soon as they settle down the storm stopped and the sun came out again.

 That very evening a spectacular sunset compesated the afternoon inconvenience. The followed life at Ancora and partecipated to Filippo’s concert with the Band of Panzano in the main square of Greve in Chianti: they really enjoyed Chianti life if during this trip Lorne his passion for red wine!

“Hi Laura & Filippo,
Hope you are all well;  we are fine here and missing Greve every day.  From the moment we arrived (in a roaring, but brief, thunderstorm) we thought we were home!  We felt that our week at Ancora del Chianti was the real part of our holiday in Italy, as we got to experience life in your village, including a musical concert in the town square.   We are determined to return one day. Lorne now insists that we only drink Chianti red wine. Take Care Lorne & Susan”

Snow is everywhere in Europe: in Holland too. Peter and Sjoerdie sent us this picture during a nice walk in the wood near their house in Doetinchem, with their beloved dog.
