My name is Laura, and I am the heart & soul of our B&B. Not only do I take care of our guests during their holiday but I also am dedicated to my artwork, which you will find decoratin the walls of the bed and breakfast as well as many of the bedrooms. My latests passion is "creative sewing".
My husband Filippo takes care of the olive grows and the vineyards and enjoys playing the trumpet at the local band in Panzano.
Our adventure started in the year 2000 when we moved from the city to Chiante and fell in love with this farmhouse on the top of a hill surround by silence, vineyards and olive groves ... not to mention the spectacular view.
Here at Ancora del Chianti we have created for ourselves and for our guests a simple, yet well maintained, atmosphere which resides in harmony with nature, where things slow down from the frenetic pace outside to a calm and relaxing rythm. Our life style attempts to minimize our impact on the environment.
We look forward to sharing this passion with you!
