There's not much more I can say about Ancora del Chianti except amazing. The room was wonderful, and the people even better. We were welcomed with a smile, and Laura and company were extremely helpful. My wife was accommodated at breakfast with her gluten issue. It is a great place to stay, with breathtaking views. It is only a short drive to some towns, but it is in a nice private area. The breakfasts were amazing, the rooms clean & spacious. We will definitely be returning to Italy, but next time will be spending more time at this gem of a place. We can't wait to come back.

We stayed here for three nights during our honeymoon. Ancora del Chianti is a great base for exploring the region, and a fun place to stay for it's own sake.

This is a gorgeous property located around a 15 minute drive up the hill from Greve. Most of this drive is along an unpaved road, but the signage makes it easy enough to find.

The hosts are extremely helpful and generous with their time, making the extra effort to sit down with you and help you plan your time in the region. They make excellent soap on the property, and also gave us a bonus bottle of homemade wine. The rooms are a bit rustic, as you should expect for an agriturismo. Dress warmly, it will get much colder at night here than in the cities.

Your room gets you a full Italian breakfast, served family style at a large table with other guests. Their fresh cakes are excellent.

Dear Micah and Elana, we have been honored of your visit at Ancora del Chianti BB during your honeymoon and we thank you. We are pleased to read that you really appreciated our central location in Tuscany as a great base for exploration: infact while here you could reach the main Tuscany attraction within 1-1.5 h of driving, not mentioning all the short drive destinations in the surroundings. After all these visits, we are glad to read that you appreciated the calm and the beauty of our scented and panoramic garden for regenerating and ...be ready for more adventures the next day. Thank you again for your visit and ...more pieces of cake are waiting for you when you'll be back. Laura & Staff

We loved every minute here. Beautiful setting, wonderful welcoming family. Amazing breakfasts with the most delicious cakes. The room had everything we needed and more, large comfy beds, hot powerful shower, a communal kitchen we could use when we didn't fancy going out. The nearby town also has wonderful restaurants and is very charming. We also booked a painting class through the b&b which we would highly recommend. We can't wait to go back. Thank you Laura, family and team x

We had a lovely 4 night stay mid October. The property is beautiful: wonderful views, peaceful, excellent rooms. We enjoyed cooking in our well appointed kitchen as well as meeting fellow travelers in the communal kitchen. Laura and her staff were warm, welcoming and very helpful. She arranged a fabulous wine/lunch tour for us. It was easy to feel at home there. We appreciated their "green" commitment to providing organic food and being environmentally sensitive in their practices.

Room Tip: We had a suite in a separate building. rhere was a kitchen/eating area and an upstairs sleeping loft.
