The apartment, which is totally independent, is situated at the first floor of an ancient villa, called Villa Orsucci, where I live with my family (me, my wife, our 24-year-old son and our 16-year-old daughter). Besides Villa Orsucci there is another Villa in stone and the “Orangerie” next to the pool. All the houses have their own privacy and you can't even tell there are other people.
The pool is 15 mt x 6 mt with a deep from 1.2 mt to 2.60 mt in the dips area, plus a small area in wood of 1.30 meters x 6 meters, 10 centimeters under water, much loved by young children because they can stay in the water without fear. The edge of the pool is made of travertine stone, while the interior is in glass mosaic. With the light of the sun it reflects beautiful colors, like the Caribbean. It is not salt water. There is a diatomaceous filter and an electronic control unit of dosage for chlorine and PH. There is no smell of chlorine and the water is always very clean. There is a solar shower and 16 sunbeds. The pool is surrounded by a green lawn and an oak tree that serves as the umbrella.
During the night the pool can be illuminated, to swim even during night time, and it can be closed automatically to maintain the water temperature and/or for children’s safety. In the spring and autumn months there is a system with a heat exchanger that keeps the water temperature warm enough.
The apartament in Villa Orsucci is equipped with everything you may need, also for daily cleaning (vacuum cleaner, washing machine, dishwasher, etc). Once a week there is the changing of sheets, towels, pool towels, and cleaning of the house.
For your babies there is everything you may need, such as cots, cribs, baby chair for the table, buggy, a baby changing table and several toys.
