Look no further, you will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Italy including a superb 3 day stay at the Casina Studio in San Palo. What an amazing place, so beautifully decorated and well thought out....Laura has considered everything to make ones stay so comfortable. The views from the private terrace are incredible and the peace and quiet make it a perfect location to read, write a book or just plan the day ahead. if you are looking for a place in the Chianti Region, look no further, you will not be disappointed!!

The perfect rural Tuscan retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Tuscany, 5 nights of which were spent at Campo al Salcio in the Casina apartment. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. The apartment itself was lovely with a mezzanine floor above the lounge and well equipped kitchen, housing a good sized double bed and bathroom (shower). The owner, Laura, could not do enough for us from beginning to end. She was always on hand without ever being intrusive. She even gave us home grown zucchini, salads and picked us plums and cherries from the fruit trees growing all around the house. Really though, the best part of all was the setting. The views from the private patio were simply incredible. Likewise, the infinity pool is as though you are floating above Chianti! It is very high up in the hills, you could not walk to the shops for example, so would definitely need a car. In my opinion however, that isolation is the draw of Tuscany. In summary, if you would enjoy total peace and quiet, a bit of home cooking (and with the produce in nearby Greve in Chianti and the likes, superb meats and cheeses are never far away!), drinking fantastic local wines with unbroken classic Tuscan views then you will be sure to love Campo al Salcio. We will be back (again and again!).

Additional note: We travelled with our 6 month old baby, which was absolutely fine as he is not yet fully mobile. Perhaps with older children you might wish to consider the other 2 apartments within Campo al Salcio instead. It might be easy for a curious toddler to take a tumble down the stairs in the apartment or worse, off the patio. They seem equally as lovely and have good sized gardens as well as patios.

Superbe séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes rentrés avec de merveilleux souvenirs de notre séjour de "Campo al salcio" : La Casina est très bien conçue ( nous sommes un couple avec 2 enfants), la cuisine est fonctionnelle avec un grand bar pour préparer les repas ou y manger, les pièces sont spacieuses et le tout est très propre. La terrasse est très agréable avec une vue magnifique sur les montagnes. La piscine est grande, très bien entretenue : les enfants ont adoré...Le gîte est bien placé, idéal avec des enfants puisqu'il permet d'alterner visites et repos au bord de la piscine. En une semaine, nous avons pu visiter plusieurs villages dont Greve in chianti ( 15 mn environ) , très agréable pour boire un verre en terrasse ou manger une glace, Florence ( 25 mn) ou Sienne (45mn). Et enfin, Laura est charmante : panier garni à notre arrivée et légumes du jardin dans la semaine . Bref...nous n'hésiterons pas à conseiller cette adresse à nous amis !

Nos merveilleuses vacances en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

La vue sur les collines environnantes depuis la terrasse, le parfum des fleurs, les vignes, les oliviers, la faune locale, sans oublier la piscine située à proximité et le calme des lieux, la Casina de Laura aura très fortement contribué à la réussite de notre séjour en Toscane. Les légumes du jardin, le vin, le miel et les confitures maison étaient un régal. La Casina ne manque de rien. Confortable et propre, on s'y sent comme chez soi, avec le cachet local en plus. Merci à Laura pour son accueil, sa gentillesse et sa discrétion.

En bas de la colline, San Polo vous offre de quoi vous ravitailler.

Toutefois, à 10 km de là, la sympathique petite ville de Greve in Chianti vous propose de faire le plein de produits régionaux. La place est charmante avec ces balcons fleuris. Les villages de Panzano, Rada in Chianti ou encore de Castellina sont à faire. Florence est à 20 km mais le déplacement en bus vous soulage du casse-tête du stationnement, ce à un coût relativement modeste. Sienne est plus lointaine mais incontournable. Quant aux cités anciennes de Volterra et surtout de San Gimignano, elles vous enchanteront. Le détour par Pise ne vaut que si vous passez dans les environs. Enfin, la Toscane ne serait pas ce qu'elle est sans ses paysages vallonnés et verdoyants, ses vignobles, ses oliviers et son "cielo azzurro".

Superbe maison avec tout ce qu'il faut à l'intérieur. Une vue magnifique, piscine très propre et très grande ! Laura la propriétaire n'était pas la lors de notre séjour mais son frère c’est occupé de nous, toujours la quand on n'avait besoin et avec le sourire ☺. A notre arrivé nous avions des gâteaux, du pain, du lait et un vin excellent fait maison ! Franchement merci à eux car nous avons passé un excellent séjour, surtout n'hésitez pas pour cette location !

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.
