Our Swimming-pool and Garden
Going down this last rustic stone path you’ll finally reach one of the most characteristic areas of La Matassina
: our swimming-pool.
The pool is surrounded by a spacious
white floor solarium
and outlined by an intense green lawn
. The solarium area
is equipped with beach umbrellas
, dedicated to each guest of the house
, as well as an external shower
to be enjoyed before and after your swim
The construction of the pool has been designed considering all security standards: its depth never exceeds 1.40 m, which enables all of our guests to swim without any obstacles and the less skilled swimmers to always feel safe as you can touch the pool bottom any time. The pool is 12 m long and 5 m wide; moreover, an extra side of the pool, is dedicated to the youngsters‘s safety and their parents‘ serenity, as it is outlined by a railing and it is
only fifty centimetres deep
, so that even your little kids can have fun
in our swimming pool without running any risk
. There are few but clear rules for the use of the pool. Parents
in charge of the children
are required to pay particular
attention to the very young swimmers
, as, in compliance with the law, the depth of our pool doesn’t require the presence of a lifeguard.
We remind all of our guests that if they have eaten a proper meal, they should always wait a few hours before swimming. It is strictly forbidden to dive into the pool because of its depth and structure. All guests can access the pool using the pool staircase. You can enjoy the pool area as long as you wish, but please remember you are not alone and you should always respect all other guests that may be present. In order to let us clean the pool and its area, guests are allowed to use the pool from h 9.30 to h 21.00.
In the evening our staff needs to use a series of dedicated products aimed at guaranteeing the suitable properties of the pool water or start the robot for the cleaning of the pool bottom and walls.
When designing the pool area, we considered using saltwater instead of water full of chlorine for our pool as, according to experts, saltwater is much healthier. So, in order to offer our guests excellent water properties, chlorine is barely present in our pool. During the cleaning of the pool water after h 21.00 pm it is not possible to bathe or swim in the pool. Nonetheless, guests can always continue enjoying their relax on our loungers and chairs under a sky full of stars and next to our illuminated pool.
La Matassina Bed & Breakfast characterizes itself also for its stunning exteriors, immersed in a large and well–finished green area to make you feel in harmony with our surrounding nature and find peace and relax within the green Tuscan countryside. Next to its green plants, bushes and trees, our garden is also embellished with rustic details of Tuscan tradition, like for example the wonderful stairs in stone and bricks from the previous demolished structure.
From the ancient staircase linking the outer entrance of the B&B to the parking place, two small walls in stone and bricks outline an area of beautiful flowerbeds. A series of paths, composed of rustic hundred-year old bricks, connect the different areas of the mansion, one of which will lead you to a wonderful and solid stone barbecue area – at complete disposal of our guests, overlooking a breath-taking landscape.
