Description
New for 2021: prepaid rate with free of charge travel insurance and refund up to 100% even for last minute cancellations.

Surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, our 200 y. o. stone farmhouse is on a hilltop with a spectacular view over the Greve valley - filled with ancient castles, picturesque villages, and farms where you can taste genuine local products. Ancora del Chianti Country BB & Art Retreat in Tuscany provides bed-and-breakfast accommodation with double and twin rooms in a converted Chianti farmhouse.

Think of Tuscany and you probably picture somewhere like Ancora del Chianti. That means hospitality, a friendly atmosphere and magnificent scenery. Free WIFI connection in common areas only.

Your hosts are Laura and Filippo. Laura will be taking care of you during your stay. She decorated the house herself and spends her spare time sewing and painting the flowers in the beautiful garden. Each morning she provides breakfast on the terrace. Filippo has devoted himself to the vineyards and the olive groves producing Chianti and olive oil.

This is the perfect spot to relax, in the courtyard and on the lawns which surround the house. But when you venture further afield you'll find plenty to do. There are local castles, villages, and farms to visit, as well as excellent local walks, horse riding, mountain biking, tennis, lake fishing and much more. Laura and Filippo are also happy to offer suggestions about wine tours with tastings in Chianti, Montalcino, San Gimignano and Montepulciano; visits to the major cities such as Florence, Siena and Arezzo; and shopping at the hottest fashion outlets.

Really enjoyed our stay. Laura was a very welcoming host and made our stay very enjoyable. She also booked us on an olive oil tour and tasting as well as a tour of a castle which is owned by a family which produces very fine wines (Verrazzano) and they served us a fantastic lunch.

The ex Farm is freshly redecorated in style. Laura charms everyone and is very knowledeble on the suroundings. Alexandra serves the best breakfast. at one big table and entertains the guests so that everyone starts talking. The best B&B we stayed at.

Ce havre de paix idéalement situé pour découvrir la Toscanne et plus particulièrement le Chianti est animé par Laura qui sait vous accueillir chaleureusement tout en vous conseillant. Quelle chance de pouvoir rentrer le soir après nos excursions au calme de cette belle propriété avec vue imprenable sur les oliviers et les vignes.

Accueillis par Laura et Philipo nous avons passé un super séjour à Ancora del Chianti. Une chambre très agréable dans une belle propriété située dans cette belle Toscane que notre charmante hôtesse nous a aidé à découvrir. Et que dire des petits déjeuners et de la gentillesse de Daniella ou de Valentina, trop trop bon! Un enchantement.

Belle structure avec une grande capacité d'accueil (groupes, activités à dimension dite "culturelle" et/ou "artistique"). Accueil cosmopolite ++; belle prestation concernant le petit déj. Petite cuisine mise à disposition des vacanciers. Merci à Laura, Alexandra et Emmanuelle.

Abbiamo soggiornato purtroppo solo una notte in questa struttura ma è stata un'esperienza spettacolare che rifaremo sicuramente molto presto. Laura e Debora gentilissime e professionali, la camera e in generale tutto pulitissimo, ben arredato e niente lasciato al caso. Vista mozzafiato, e colazione molto suggestiva in una veranda all aperto immersa nella quieta. Per raggiungere la struttura bisogna percorrere una strada sterrata, ma niente di infattibile, ne vale la pena. Parcheggio gratuito. Consigliatissimo.

Ottima struttura nel cuore del Chianti. I proprietari e Alessandra sono stati molto ospitali e disponibili. Fantastiche le torte di Alessandra per la colazione. Per raggiungere il B&B bisogna percorrere una lunga strada sterrata ma ne vale la pena data la vista magnifica di cui si gode una volta arrivati.

Abbiamo soggiornato in 4 e ci siamo trovati molto bene sotto tutti i punti di vista. Gestori molto amichevoli e professionali e struttura molto confortevole e in buona posizione nella zona del Chianti e ben posizionata per visitare le principali città Toscane. Ci torneremo.
