The b&b is situated on a hill accessible by a dirt road which doesn't even appear on the gps. But the initial fear of disappointment quickly vanishes as you pull in and see the amazing view of the hills. Each apartment has a full kitchen, terrace, and bathroom. The place is so peaceful, you will not want to leave. There were other tourists there, but the layout provides maximum privacy, we felt as if we were the only ones there.
The hosts, Sandro and Carla are more than accommodating, catering to every need of their guests.
This place is perfect if you are looking for a typical tuscan experience. The house is situated on an old olive tree farm. You can sample their production of wine and olive oil, as well as countless other wineries in the region. This is raw country living at it's best.
Beautiful cities like Florence and Siena are a quick drive away, although the train is a better option for Florence.
Note* they do not serve breakfast, but there are plenty of markets in the area where you can buy food and prepare whatever you want. Trust me, it beats the croissant and butter cube that most b&bs offer.
I recommend this place and would return in a heart beat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- According to the Book of Taxes the Decimario of 1692 (17th century) the territory of the Parish of San Pietro a Cintoia was divided among various farmhouses, including La Sala, which belonged to the monks of Montescalari. The population of the Pieve di San Pietro a Cintoia was never very large. In 1696 there were only 9 families totaling 112 members. In 1790 Mr. Giovan Batta Torricelli lived at La Sala with 11 people. In 1855 Ms. Maddalene Pampalini lived at La Sala with 6 people, together with Mr. Antonio Trambusti and his family of 6 . The tax used in the past called Decima was determined by the profits on wheat, oil and wine and was divided between the estate owner and the share croppers. The tax was paid to the Church of San Pietro. In 1692 La Sala Farm belonged to the monks living in the Abbey of Montescalari. Notified by the Archives of the Dioceses of Fiesole.
