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 !

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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

Dear Giulietta,

thank you very much for our great vacation this summer. The communication was very good, friendly and courteous. The apartment was clean and everything necessary was in there. Small repairs were down quickly.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Apartment / Interieur corresponds with the description.

Everything was fine and we enjoyed our stay.

Best Regards

Casa i Ghiacci, welcomes you on a hill, with a cool breeze in the summer and green fields all around. Casa Ghiacci is a green lung, casa Ghiacci is kids friendly, it has a fenced pool and is only 1,40 mt deep, it provides a nice break from the hot weather in summer. Casa Ghiacci has easy acces to all facilities (supermarket, bank, laundry, post, bakery,doctor).
