"Dear Laura, dear Filippo, what a wonderful new website! It brightens up our lovely memories of your beautiful house and garden. We had a wonderful week at Ancora del Chianti in July last year. We enjoyed it a lot, and some day we will surely come back. We still enjoy the last precious drops of olive oil we took with us last year, and then we feel like sitting on your veranda watching the sun go down :-) Frank and Carmen. "

"Dispiace Andarsene - Confermo tutte le recensioni positivissime su questo b&b che sembra a tutti gli effetti un agriturismo e credo non ne abbia il nome solo per ragioni burocratiche. Non do' il punteggio massimo soltanto perché a differenza delle altre le nostre due stanze erano nella parte più vecchiotta degli edifici, anche la mobilia era un po' "rimediata", e non c'era granché come set bagno, ma abbiamo prenotato veramente all'ultimo minuto e siamo stati già fortunati a trovare posto! La zona è sensazionale, la vista sulle colline del Chianti di una bellezza commovente, l'accoglienza gentile e calorosa, i materassi ottimi, la campagna silenziosa, la colazione abbondante, gli spazi esterni attrezzati in modo che ciascuna stanza abbia una zona dedicata, e ci sono poi gli spazi a disposizione di tutti, sotto gli ulivi, con le sdraio, le sedie e i tavolini, ma tutto sempre assolutamente discreto e molto tranquillo, molto "vero" (una menzione particolare per le facilities da camera, con il bollitore e l'occorrente per un thé, un caffè ed uno spuntino in ogni stanza). Laura dipinge acquerelli di grande piacevolezza e quelli esposti nelle camere sono in vendita, si possono comprare anche l'olio e altri prodotti fatti dai proprietari, tra i quali grandi ed originali borse di stoffa pensate e poi realizzate a mano. Insomma, sembra quasi di stare nella casa in campagna che avevi sempre sognato di avere, e viene proprio voglia di tornare :-)"

"A Very Special Place With a Very Special Host! - We stayed for seven nights in September to catch the wine festival in Greve and we are so glad we chose to stay at Ancora del Chianti, it is a very special place due to a very special host Laura! She is so welcoming and friendly and is dedicated to making sure all her guests have the best experience at her beautiful home. We really appreciated all the little touches such as the sweet welcome card outside the room and arranging a homemade cake and bottle of their own organic wine on our arrival. We looked forward to our morning chats over lovely breakfasts on the terrace where she would help us with directions and recommendations every day and also told us about the carnival and children's lantern procession in Greve which made us feel privileged to experience a little part of community life. The room was very clean, charming and quaint and it was lovely to return to after a long day out sightseeing to relax in the hammocks amidst the olive groves or on the terrace and appreciate the tranquility and breathtaking views of the beautiful valley of Greve - whilst drinking Chianti of course! The wine festival was fabulous but we can honestly say that Laura and Filippo's wine can't be beat! To stay at Ancora del Chianti is an absolute treat and we would like to again thank Laura, Filippo, Spartaco and Cesare for sharing their beautiful home and making our memories of Tuscany truly magical. We can't wait to return, see you next time! Big hugs, Debbie and Andy xx"

"We were lucky to spend seven nights in this truly beautiful part of the world. Even before we arrived we were sent an email and asked whether we would like a picnic basket in our room and wine as we were arriving late in the day. Then we were greeted by our wonderful hosts Laura and Fillipo. Boy do they make you feel at home. This place is so relaxing, with it's hammocks and chairs scattered around the property, you could quite easily while away the day. The accomodation is clean and comfortable, and breakfast is lovely being served under the verandah, were you can chatter to the other guests. The lovely town of Greve is about five minutes away with great restaurants and cafes, and the BnB is situated right in the heart of Chianti, and being very central to Florence and Sienna. We would love to return again one day if we are fortunate enough, and we would not hesitate to recommend this home away from home. Thanks again Laura for your wonderful hospitality and to Fillippo for sharing his wine pressing with Ian, was truly memorable. "

"Seven Nights in Tuscany - What a wonderful b&b. My partner is not keen on this sort of accommodation, but he is hooked. we loved it here and we were made to feel at home by our wonderful hosts Laura and her husband Fillipo. what lovely people they are. This place is in a beautiful position high on the hill overlooking beautiful valleys. The traditional continental breakfast is served on the verandah, where you get to mingle with the other guests, if that is what you want.The town of Greve is the closest village, and is so beautiful, with lots of cafes and beautiful restaurants, not to mention the incredible butcher shop. A car is necessary here as this is not accessible by any other means. What we loved was the accessibility to Sienna and Florence as this is situated in the heart of Chianti"
