About Laura Battistelli
I'm Laura, I live in Tuscany for 15 years with my partner and son in the ancient complex of Mezzalle
Why Laura Battistelli chose Greve In Chianti
A few years ago we had the opportunity to restore a part of the house that we decided to lease tourist. I really like living in Mezzalle, it is a beautiful place surrounded by greenery, among chestnut woods, olive groves and vineyards. I love dealing with the olive grove, the vineyard, the vegetable garden and the gardens of the property. I would define the quality of my life in this excellent place.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The complex of Mezzalle is very old, dating back to the IX century, it is all of stone and is located on a hill overlooking a valley of olive groves and vineyards. Everywhere you look, the show is wonderful and changeable. Silence, tranquility and beauty are the characteristics of Mezzalle for me.

Perfect holiday apartment
After a busy 2 weeks exploring Italy, this was the perfect end to our holiday. After a warm welcome from Laura, we (my husband, daughter 15, son 12 and sister in law (no age given) started our last 3 days of relaxation. Beautiful location, excellent accommadation, well equipped and clean. The pool provided my family with hours of fun and kept us cool. Florence was only 30 minutes away by car. There are a few convienenence stores in San Polo that provided us with our needs and also a good Trattoria with a friendly atmosphere. The welcome pack from Laura was gratefully received especially the Vino.
We will love to return to Mezzalle next year and have already recommended this property to friends.
Our family of 4 (2 parents, 2 teenaged daughters) had a wonderful time at Campo al Salcio. We rented both the Pesco and Melograno studios.
Because of the beautiful pool and the wonderful landscape we visited less than foreseen, but instead enjoyed doing nothing for some days (la dolce far niente). The appartments and pool are more beautful than on the pictures. Fillippo brought us regularly fresh vegetables from his garden, we were able to cook some delicious meals.
Thank you very much for your review, we are very happy when our guests are happy.
Very kind regards,

They make you feel at home
We were 5 this summer to stay at Campo al Salcio for 3 nights.It was a wonderful experience. The place is absolutely gorgeous, we had two communicating apartments, very clean and fully equiped. We arrived and the kitchen table was full of food, Laura brought us fresh vegetables from her garden. She has been such a nice and helpful guest.
We had a private garden in front of the house, and a wonderful swimming pool.
The place is close to most major Tuscany cities.
Although we come from Canada, we alredy are thinking of going back for a full week.
We really recommend this place, you will feel home in Tuscany landscape!
A Wonderful Stay in Tuscany!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at Campo al Salcio. The pictures do not do justice to the heavenly infinity pool! The place is high on a hill and hard to find upon arrival - make sure you get very detailed directions! It is a beautiful property. Every day Filippo brought us fresh vegetables from his garden -we were inspired to cook! The accommodations were quite comfortable for the 5 of us - 2 adjoining rooms. Laura was very gracious in answering all my many questions by email prior to our trip. The air conditioning was not working during our visit. Internet access would have improved our stay. We have great memories of Tuscany. I highly recommend this property-great value!
Un petit paradis de Toscane
la Toscane est une région merveilleuse où tout est beauté. La location proposée par Laura est un petit coin de paradis nichée au milieu des vignes et des oliviers. Nous avons énormément apprécié le cadre, le jardin et la piscine qui venait clôturer nos belles journées de visites. Laura est de très bons conseils et vous accueillera magnifiquement bien. A ne pas manquer !
MEZZALLE is a huge old farm house in the heart of the Chianti region, perched on a hill in the middle of a woodland of chesnuts, olive trees, and vineyards, 20 km from Florence and 17 km from Greve in Chianti. According to some historians, the old house, which dates back to the 9th century a.d., was a retreat to a community of Templars.
Mezzalle is situated only 3 km from the village of San Polo in Chianti, where it is possible to find a variety of shops. The village is known for the centuries old cultivation of iris (Iris Pallida), which in the spring time characterizes the area with beautiful fields of colour, to which an annual festival is dedicated in May. Natur lovers can enjoy the splendid views and stroll along many footpaths while art lovers can easily reach nearby centres of art such as Florence, Arezzo, Siena.
