Happy to share it with anyone who visits.

Tenuta Valle Lunga

  • 5 of 5

I went to Tenuta Valle Lunga with my Mum. Our first holday away together. Giulietta and her lovely family were so helpful as we had never travelled so far alone before.

The farm house is stunningly rustic. Very clean and simple and super spacious. There was easiy room for 4 in our appartment.

A lovely pool that was a welcome cooling off facility, much needed in August!

We had the most relaxing holiday ever. Driving and exploring during the day, sitting by the pool early evening, back into the appartement to make tea and then a walk through the extensive fields and path ways before bed.

Excellent stay ay Casa Ghiacci

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed one week at the "Il Forno" apartment at Casa Ghiacci.

The apartment was very spacious for the 4 of us. While the accomodation is rustic, all is clean and well-kept. The apartment offered us a good level of simple comfort.

The surroundings of Casa Ghiacci are quiet and nice with lots of woodland and plain nature. The swimming pool is a good thing as temperatures went up strongly.

Our two children made quicky friends with the other guests' children. Our daughter enjoyend very much the ranch. During our stay she followed a training at Vallelunga's ranch. Our son tried fishing in the 5 ha. lake at Vallelunge - but no fish. We'll keep on trying more.

Giulietta is friendly, and above all, very helpful host. She has good advice for activities, sightseeing and nearby restaurants.

We enjoyed very much our stay and we'll be back !

Great place

  • 5 of 5

we went to Vallelunga often.

this is a very charming place, surrounded by woods and close to the sea. A beautiful and well maintained property, away from noise.

We have always been very well received.

this is an ideal place to visit Tuscany.

I recommend this place to everyone.

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

The good:- Great location on a huge, private hunting estate. Great for animal lovers (if that's not a contradiction). Huge lake for fishing with Carp and small Bass. Real sense of isolation in a relatively urban area. Close to Lucca (stunning) and Livorno (not so stunning). Also Pisa, Volterra, Quercianella etc.

Giuletta very helpful. Close to a stunning restaurant which is discounted for residents.

Could be improved / feedback:- upstairs apartments were sickenly hot (albeit in a very hot spell), fridge was too small for an adult family, only two pool loungers per apartment, no good for a family of 5 adults.

Die Anlage entspricht nicht mal andeutungsweise den Fotos oder der Beschreibung im Internet. Ungepflegt und eigentlich mit Pkw fast nicht zu erreichen. Über die Vermieterin können wir leider nichts sagen, da wir sie nie zu Gesicht bekamen und so abends 8 Uhr ohne Zimmer dastanden. Der Urlaub war also mit der anreise bereits gelaufenund wir konnten mit unserem dreijährigen Sohn wieder über 1100 km in der Nacht zurück fahren. Der einzige Kommentar der Vermieterin per Mail dazu. " gute Reise". Alles in allem eine Frechheit. Am besten nicht buchen. Einen Stern nur,weil die Bewertung ohne nicht geht

From the Owner

Tenuta Vallelunga is close to the main roads and highways to reach Tuscany's great cities. A three hundred hectars property (3/4 of woods and pine woods) with a 3 hectars lake, a horse riding ground and a number of houses. Casa i Ghiacci, on a hill, with a cool breeze in the summer and green fields all around is a green lung far from the city hustle and still close to it. Its pool provides a nice break from the hot weather in summer, easy acces to all facilities (supermarket, bank, laundry, post, bakery,doctor)
