And not onlly. During your holidays in Chianti, you can join the most enjoyble activities: best wine tours in the region Chianti and Tuscany, the best visit to oil press with olive oil tasting. For art and architecture lovers, Florence is just 20 km from our BB and Siena is at 40km. Within one hour drive you can reach these world famous art cities together with many other as: San Gimignano, Pisa and Lucca, Arezzo and Cortona, etc etc.


Another option is challenging your talent and skills with painting classes en plein air or in a charming studio for individuals couples and groups; reproduce at home the best Tuscan cuisine with cooking classes and you will prepare traditional Tuscany meals; take the advantage of learning Italian language or improve it while on holidays in Chianti and you will have the opportunity of practising immediately.

Painting Classes at Ancora del Chianti


On a sunny spring afternoon, we enjoyed an amazing watercolour painting class instructed by our charming teacher: all together we celebrated the first flowers of our garden at Ancora del Chianti.
Durante un soleggiato pomeriggio di primavera, una allegra lezione di acquerello sotto la guida attenta della nostra insegnante ci ha permesso di celebrare l’arrivo dei primi fiori di primavera all’Ancora del Chianti.

The inspiring and silent setting and the lovely company helped a lot in order to create colourful and detailed flowers watercolours to hang, to offer or to keep for future improvements. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant with a cup of tea – and a glass of good Chianti wine for the wilder ones.

Watercolours in Chianti

L’ambiente, ricco di ispirazione e  silenzioso, e la simpatica compagnia hanno contribuito a creare delle opere all’acquerello ricche di dettagli e piene di colori da incornicare, regalare o tenere in conto per futuri miglioramenti della tecnica. L’atmosfera era rilassata e piacevole in compagnia di una tazza di tè o di un bicchiere di buon vino Chianti, per le più audaci.

Favourite subjects were daffodils, anemons and pervinca. Some other preferred simple fresh herbs as rosmary, sage and thyme with amazing results.
Il soggetto privilegiato sono stati i narcisi, gli anemoni e la pervinca. Qualcun’altro ha optato per semplici erbe aromatiche come rosmarino, salvia e timo con risultati sorprendenti.

Ancora del Chianti Garden & Relax

The seasons started early this year at Ancora del Chianti and our guests did not wait too long to send us their comment and thanking for the stay on our guestbook. Christine and Scott (US) left this review about their stay in March:

“Dear Laura,

We loved our visit at Ancora and only wish our   stay was longer. (And the weather was a bit warmer, but of course you can’t change Mother Nature. ) You helped assure our stay was positive with all the personal touches: a note marking our rooms waiting for us upon arrival, the delicious treats made my Ingrid, the tips and suggestions for excursions given with detail, choice and even a bit of intrigue, and your commitment to run an eco-friendly establishment. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. We sincerely hope to return soon or in a few years.”
