What a pleasant surprise we encountered after leaving Roma and arriving at Ancora del Chianti. Laura greeted us and showed us to our room which had our names nicely placed on the door. The room was warm, cozy and very inviting. Decorated beautifully and was furnished in a somewhat old fashioned way. Our room was on the bottom floor of the main house. It was extremely clean, neat and quiet. The room was cleaned daily. Breakfast was a wide variety of foods to choose from, not a restaurant style. Most of the visitors ate around the same time so it was enjoyable to meet and get to know where everyone has come from and what the different plans were for the day. The next morning, at breakfast, we would discuss our travels of the previous day. There was never a rush for us to leave the table. The cooks were very accommodating also. The splendor and beauty of the rolling hills was breathtaking. Laura had a patio for each couple to spend time on if they wished to be alone.
