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
In 1989 Sandro and Carla became owners of La Sala.
The tax called Decima was no longer applied!
Who we are
Before I decided to dedicate myself to Agriturismo, I was an Architect whose spare time was dedicated to sailing and staying at our house at the seaside. Then we decided to purchase an old farm house in the Chianti countryside, and while deciding on how to renovate, we realized that there was plenty of space for guests. And so I began to design and plan three holiday apartments on our property. Everyone who has stayed with us swear that it is a perfect place to spend a honeymoon. We are open from April to September. Carla and I live on the premises, and we look after our guests, the swimming pool, and our vegetable garden where the produce is free for picking. Carla says that at La Sala everyone should feel as though they are at home. Each year when the season is over I leave for Burkina Faso in Africa to dedicate a month of my thime and energy to the people there and to help them with their work in the fields - an Experience that our guests at the Sala never get tired of listening to.
