COVID CARE


During Spring-early Summer 2020 we have extensively reorganized and deeply cleaned the house (with awareness of Covid19) and purchased additional professional cleaning equipment. We now offer only 4 accommodations (2 doubles and 2 suites) to keep maximum occupancy low during this time.

Reservations

Currently, during uncertainty around Covid 19 we are offering late confirmation on rooms (you can confirm as late as 48/72 hours from check in for most nights) and cardless booking (credit card guarantee & payment not required until it is decided to proceed) In cases of overbooking or underbooking we will be in contact to seek confirm or cancellation from uncertain bookings.

Arrivals

As standard we offer arrival & check in from 4pm-10pm and departure & check out between 7am-10am. During uncertainty around Covid 19 we intend to coordinate arrivals and departures individually with you. It is also possible to request/advance book earlier arrival and later departure during the reservation process

Cleaning

Rooms & Suites

All cleaning during uncertainty around Covid is undertaken by the family personally. Following departure rooms are sanitised and then aired for several hours.  All bedding, bath towels, pool towels and bath robes are all processed entirely in house with sanitising wash and high heat/steam finish + additives. All frequent touch areas – bathroom furniture & taps, light switches lamps bedside tables and power points, TV remote, windows, window sills and handles, blinds and mosquito shields, wardrobes inside and out and clothes hangars doors and door frames receive special attention; a final extra step with cleaning alcohol. Preparation time is 4-6 hours for our double rooms and 7- 14 hours for our suites Timings are cleaning care only, ex laundry, airing and HEPA filter running time! 

Opting out of Daily room Cleaning

You can of course opt out of further/daily room cleaning. We use the traditional Tuscan quick drying ‘Nido di Ape’ Honeycomb cotton towels in our rooms and suites. This year we have added drying lines in all bathrooms so that you can manage your own bath linens during your stay, if you opt out of daily room cleaning.

Periodical 72 Hour Vacancies

In addition to our measures we are taking a periodical 72/+ hour vacant periods in all rooms

Guest Kitchen

During uncertainty around Covid 19, the kitchen must be used without sharing between groups (and we offer the possibility to schedule your use), and is sanitised daily in addition to standard clean up after every use. Each of the larger rooms has an entire domestic refridgerator for use (Montepulciano Suite, Cortona/Chianti Suite) and there are two full sets of equipment: Sink, worksurface, dishwasher, oven, gas hob, pots pans plates: all are x 2

pOOL AND SHARED SPACES

Pool and public spaces care during Covid 19 is executed according to the legal requirements of course but there are a few details to know that should make this property safer than standard: Pool: The pool is large, as is the pool garden; furnished with sun loungers for 10 people, lounge chairs for 6 people and a table for 2 people it still looks ’empty’ (Our maximum occupancy is 12) Our pool is very large for a Tuscan Villa at 100m2, so maintaning your distance in the water would not be a problem.  Shared Spaces: The interiors of the house are not the corridors of a hotel but large open spaces The only space-restricted area are the two staircases within the house – washed and sanitised daily.

Breakfast in the time of Covid is a simpler affair than in previous years: fresh baked pastries, home made museli, fresh baked bread & home made preserves. Gourmet teas and real Italian coffee made on a full sized bar machine. 9am-11am
