Thy position here is in many ways ideal; the nearest restaurant is only 800 metres away in the small village of La Panca, the nearest supermarket is approx. 2km away, and for larger purchases you must drive to Greve in Chianti, only 8km away. Florence is just 25 km away so an easy day trip if you feel like exploring a big city.
Today the old farm is partly used as a summer residence for the owners who live in Florence, and due to the fact that it is somewhat too large for two people, they created three very stylish apartments for guests. This is not a place for families with children. All the apartments are equipped for two people (even though a third bed can be made up in two of the apartments). It is more of a peaceful and romantic place for couples or for someone travelling alone, seeking peace and quiet in a beautiful setting.

The apartments are nicely furnished with plenty of outdoor space. In fact in many places forty to fifty people would have considerably less space than the maximum of 10 people that have to share here. The views from the apartments and the swimming pool ( 6 x 12 m) are absolutely breathtaking. There is internet access on the site, a barbeque and the possibility of renting bikes and using the internet.
We have been on a 2 weeks vacation to Tuscany and we can only give vineyard La Sala our best recommendation. It's located in the most beautiful nature in the mountains, and breathes with atmosphere, and there is peace with penetrates deeply into your soul. The vineyard is owned by an older, fresh couple, where the wife speaks reasonable English. They own it together with their son and daughter-in-law (English speaking), which are so kind and helpful with everything.
The apartment worked fine, and was very clean and good beds. All in all a perfect place, if you like nature and quiet. Closest town is Strada in Chianto, it lies about 7 km away.
We had our fourth stay at La Sala and enjoyed the total silence, that rules the place.
There are good restaurants in the area, but you have to be prepared to drive 12-14 km to shop. In conclusion it is a all around positive experience - and not only because the host-couple are incredibly friendly and helpful.
