Surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, our 200 y. o. stone farmhouse is hilltop with a spectacular view on the valley. Ancora del Chianti EcoBB & Art Retreat in Tuscany provides bed-and-breakfast accommodation 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.
The 200-year-old house is just 5 km outside Greve in Chianti, on a hilltop with charming views over the Greve valley - filled with ancient castles, picturesque villages, and farms where you can taste genuine local products.
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 painting the flowers in the beautiful garden. Each morning she provides continental breakfast in the cosy dining room. Filippo, meanwhile, has devoted himself to the vineyards and the olive groves producing Chianti and olive oil - you will be welcome to sample both during your stay.
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. The best golf course in Florence is just 10 km from the house. 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.
Our à la carte breakfast is served on the shaded terrace overlooking the garden from 8: 30 to 10: 00. The menu includes: coffee, tea, herbal infusions, milk, juices, croissants, plum cakes, cereals, muesli, yogurt, bread, butter, jams, cheese, cold cuts, honey. Indoor breakfast room also available.
