It's been our first stay in Chiabti region and there is no better place to stay than this. You could enjoy the romantiv views (and the delicious brekfast). It's really been great! It's a perfect place in Tuscany to discover Cianti region and make trips to Florence and Siena.

We were in Tuscany to attend a wedding at a nearby Frattoria and were fortunate to spend 6 days at Ancora del Chianti.
This is a simple, unpretentious and thoroughly welcoming family run property which offers warm and genuine hospitality.
It's neither manicured lawns nor contemporary luxury, rather it's homely, home made, simple and practical.
Laura and her small team are singularly focused on creating a relaxed and friendly environment. That they have succeeded is without a doubt.
Go, enjoy, be charmed and don't be surprised if you find yourself thinking 'I must return here'. It's just that kind of place.

Room Tip: Rooms are simply furnished and squeaky clean.

It was our first time in the tuscany and we LOVED it! Laura and her husband weren't there, but the staff and her mother Guiliana were very friendly and well organised (even if we didn't understand her italian)
The house is so beautiful and a stay there Is perfect to relax a few days. We made trips to Firenze (easy with the Bus) and to other small tuscan villages - a perfect combination of sightseeing, relaxing, very good food and feeling like home!

Great Job Laura!

Best wishes from Louisa and Hannes

We arrived here as a group of 16 Americans who are all in our 30s. Laura could not have been more accommodating! Starting with our initial orientation to the wonderful daily breakfasts - everything was perfect. The rooms were spacious, the scenery was breathtaking and the food was very delicious.

Getting up to the property is an adventure (especially if you follow google maps and forget to follow the actual signs on the road), but hey that is what makes vacations fun! There is great hiking in the immediate area and in the local vineyards/olive fields.

The property is perfectly located for quick drives to all the small towns in the immediate region and it is an easy 45 minute drive to Florence. My one regret is that we only stayed here for 3 nights - next time it will be for many more!

Unpretentious, warm and inviting, Ancora del Chianti offers a lovely and tranquil setting in a wonderful location. LAURA and her staff are most gracious and helpful. A wonderful country stay, yet convenient to the sites of the Chianti region.!
