Services and Equipment that you will find in La Valle and Fignano

Accessibility

There are two apartments which, due to the position and size of the spaces, allow for convenient access by wheelchair; both also have dedicated equipment that can be installed on request in the bathrooms. You can click on the following links to see photos and descriptions: Giotto apartment in La Valle and Puccini house in Fignano. However, we invite you to contact us to find out which solution is best suited to your specific needs. Click here to open the contact page.

Reserved external area

All the apartments, both in La Valle and in Fignano, have a reserved outdoor area at their disposal. The pitches are adapted to the spaces available around the different houses, so not all areas have the same size, however all are equipped with: table, chairs, 2 deck chairs, umbrella and metal barbecue. They will therefore be a pleasant place to spend relaxing moments with loved ones.

Barbecue

There is a metal barbecue for great outdoor grilling. You can buy coal and the necessary to light it in the supermarket or in other shops in Montaione, which can be reached in a few minutes from both La Valle and Fignano.

Baby cot

For children up to 2 years of age we can provide free cots and high chairs. Please contact us in advance to request baby equipment, in order to verify the actual availability. Click here to open the contact page.

Dishwasher

A dishwasher is included in all kitchens, an appliance that we deemed necessary to make our customers focus on relaxation rather than cleaning work in the kitchen! You will also find some detergent tablets for the first 2/3 washes.

The kitchens are also equipped with an electric oven, gas hob, refrigerator with freezer, toaster, coffee machines and all accessories such as crockery, cutlery, etc …

Washing machine

Both in La Valle and in Fignano there is a laundry room with washing machine that can be used free of charge by customers. Detergent is also available. For drying each apartment is equipped with a clothesline. An iron and ironing board is also available at the reception on request

Parking and car charging point

The car park with shaded roof is available to customers, located inside both our structures, La Valle and Fignano.

In the car parks there is a charging point where you can connect your electric or plug-in hybrid car with your adapter cable (we do not have it supplied). A “slow” recharge is possible, with payment of the KWh consumed at the end of the stay

Swimming Pools

Now an essential element to spend a holiday in spring or summer, obviously both La Valle and Fignano offer their guests swimming pools well set in the gardens with a splendid view of the hills that surround us.

Open from May to September, our two swimming pools represent the central point where guests can spend pleasant days. The pool dedicated to children has dimensions of 7 x 2.5 meters, with a constant depth of 0.5 meters. The swimming pool for adults measures 7 x 14 meters and a depth ranging from about 1 meter to 2.5 meters in the area under the diving board.

Since 2020, following the introduction of stricter hygiene standards, due to the well-known coronavirus pandemic, we have had to assign each apartment a specific location around the pool. Depending on the rented apartment, guests have at their disposal:

– 3 bedroom apartments (Botticelli, Brunelleschi and Michelangelo): 1 umbrella, 2 sun loungers, 2 deck chairs
– apartments with 1 or 2 bedrooms (Giotto, Donatello, Raffaello and Leonardo): 1 umbrella, 1 sun bed, 2 deck chairs

Customers can bring additional deckchairs or chairs taken from their own pitch outside the apartment to their pool area

Open from May to September, the swimming pool is the central point where guests can spend pleasant days. It measures 7 x 14 meters with a depth that slopes from approximately 1 meter to 1.40 meters.

Since 2020, following the introduction of stricter hygiene standards, due to the well-known coronavirus pandemic, we have had to assign each apartment a specific location around the pool. Depending on the rented apartment, guests have at their disposal:

– 4 bedroom apartments (Vivaldi, Puccini and Verdi): 1 umbrella, 2 sun loungers, 4 deck chairs

– 1 bedroom apartment (Rossini): 1 umbrella, 1 sun lounger, 2 deck chairs

Guests can also bring deckchairs or extra chairs to their pool area taken from their own pitch outside the apartment

Television

Each apartment is equipped with a flat screen TV, with digital terrestrial channels or “free to air” satellite channels. Thanks to the “HDMI” input ports you will have the possibility to connect your device to the TV (HDMI cable not supplied)

Internet connection

It is known that the internet connection in rural areas a little distant from inhabited centers can be a problem. However, we are able to offer a free connection without traffic limits to our guests. In this case there are differences between La Valle and Fignano that we try to explain.

In La Valle we have a “FTTC” fiber optic connection, that means that the fiber reaches a control unit not very far from La Valle, then the old “copper cable” arrives from the control unit. An average speed of around 40 – 50 Mbps is obtained, so an acceptable connection.

In Fignano the situation is worse, it is located halfway between Montaione and Castelfiorentino and unfortunately the area is not reached by any type of wired connection (as optical fiber or ADSL). We therefore rely on a connection via public WiFi, which translates into an average download speed of around 6 Mbps. With this type of connection you can still download emails, view photos on social media and even short videos.

Typical products

We are not only agritourism and apartment rentals, ours is also a small farm mainly dedicated to the production of extra virgin olive oil and grapes for wine. You will find our products for sale both in La Valle and in Figano. You can decide to take what you need during your stay, paying for everything at check-out.

The garden cultivated in La Valle is also very popular with our guests, where customers (including those from Fignano) can come and take the ripe seasonal vegetables independently and free of charge. You will therefore find, depending on the period of your stay, salads, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, courgettes, etc…

The tennis court

 

Also available free of charge for guests of Fignano, the tennis court is located in La Valle. The surface is concrete. At the reception we have some rackets (amateur quality) that we can lend; balls are not available, however, they can be purchased in shops in Montaione, just a few minutes away.

Outside the reception at La Valle there is a form where guests can book the times they prefer.
