About Carla Florenzi

Before I decided to work in the country holiday’s business, I was an architect and only loved my sailboat and our main house. Then we decided to buy a farm in the Chianti region. When we were in the process of renovations, we saw a large space for guests. It was at this time that I was set to handle the project of four small apartments: ideal for a honeymoon in Chianti. During the season (from April to September), Carla and I live with the guests and we take care of the farm garden where we can collect the produce freely. At La Sala, as Carla says, everyone should feel as themselves. After the summer season has passed and since I'm retired, I go to Burkina Faso, where I dedicate myself to the people during one month to help in the plantations (and improve my terrible French): a story that guests of La Sala will get bored when listening to James.

Why Carla Florenzi chose Metropolitan City of Florence

Sandro and Carla live in this street... the old 'Chiantigiana' road, the SR 222, is the most beautiful of the world.... When traveling you will explore from every point, the country houses and villas, the soft hills covered with green pastures, and you will go through the dry walls. It is a perfect combination between man and nature in a magical scenario where the man has intervened to take this for his advantage. They have returned the clods of earth, dug wells, made plantations, traced paths and borders. They have built churches and monasteries in this earth, and have found enough to meet their needs without making any disruptions. The road starts in Florence, in the Badia in Ripoli, and as you follow it, you go from Strada in Chianti to Greve, Panzano and Castellina and to Siena where it ends, it unfolds and transforms itself before your eyes. The landscape is transformed, and you will be intrigued as you explore, you will be captured in an enchanted world, always different, always beautiful. The harmonious volumes of the rural homes has increased over time on the hands of the Mason peasants (who never managed to inherit the talent of Brunelleschi o Alberti), but were able to add the necessary space for the needs of family or work. The story is told by the shadows of the large naves in the Romanesque churches. Histories of men capable of creating both harmony and inspiration for peace and serenity. In the eternal struggle between good and evil, the good has certainly defeated here.

Un véritable havre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Nous n'avons qu'une envie : y retourner ! Idéalement située pour visiter Sienne, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra... la propriété est magnifique et propice à la dolce vita tant en amoureux qu'en famille. L'appartement est très agréable, la vue est splendide de la terrasse et l'accueil des propriétaires charmant. Vraiment un bel endroit pour se ressourcer !

Un cadre enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre semaine dans ce gite au milieu des collines du chianti. C'est une belle région à découvrir.

Le gite est très bien fourni et les propriétaires sont très aimables et serviables.

Nous avons pu nous reposer en profitant de la vue et du charme de l'endroit, parcourir les villages et vignobles environnants et visiter les grandes villes Florence (30mn de route, Sienne 1h20 par la route pittoresque, etc)

Nous conseillons cet endroit, en gardant à l'esprit qu'il faut une voiture et faire pas mal de routes si on veut visiter la région.

Beatiful location

  • 5 of 5

This property is located in the hills of Tuscany, away from the noise of the highways, with beautiful views. The apartments are rustic, with all the neccesities of modern life, with a full kitchen and a beautiful terrace. Our hosts were more than welcoming and made our stay very enjoyable. If you want a true tuscan experience, this is definitely the right place. We highly reccomend this place and we would certainly go back.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in this calm and peaceful place. The view was beautiful, especially in the morning when the hills lay resplendant in the morning sun.

The apartment was very clean and tastefully furnished,the kitchen was well equipped. The friendly owners, Carla and Sandro, were always available and helpful.

We will recommend this place to all our friends intending to visit Italy and hope that we will soon find the opportunity to come here again!

Wir hatten 2 traumhafte Wochen auf La Sala. Es war unser erster Aufenthalt aber bestimmt nicht der letzte. La Sala ist eine richtige Oase der Entspannung. Von der Terrasse ein schöner weiter Blick in die Natur. Ebenso vom sehr gepflegten Pool aus. Besonders ist die Ruhe hervorzuheben. Die Gastgeber, Carla und Sandro versuchen die Wünsche Ihrer Gäste von den Augen abzulesen. Wir wurden mit Feigen und Tomaten aus eigenem Anbau versorgt - einfach lecker. La Sala ist der ideale Standort um das Chianti zu erforschen. z.B. Florenz, Siena, Greve, Radda, San Gimignano sind gut und schnell erreichbar.
