THE WINNER OF PHOTO CONTEST 2016 is
Mme Nathalie from France with
“Ancora del Chianti B&B: your place for new horizons”
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.
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.
Reward yourself with peace and new energy:
