About Giulietta

Born in Tuscany with British ancestors, who came to Tuscany in the XIX Century and settled down near Pisa.I share the same love for this region with its blue skies, painted hills, warm air and gentle breeze, tasty food and superb wine. Happy to share it with anyone who visits.

Giulietta purchased this farmhouse in 1960

Why Giulietta chose Livorno

Tenuta Vallelunga is in the middle of woods and fields, outside the bustle of the city and yet only five minutes from the main roads and highways to reach Tuscany's great cities. A three hundred hectars property with 3/4 of woods and pine woods and with a 3 three hectars lake, a horse riding ground and many paths to walk. 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). At Casa Ghiacci we make you feel at home and guides you to discover the best art spots, restaurants, food markets or evening bar in the neighbourhood when you feel like.
