Behind Villa Fiano is the farmhouse, Fienile where the English speaking caretaker lives (one person). He is available to help guests with any problems that may arise but will be careful not to intrude on guests’s privacy. The outdoor facilities of the house -- garden, pergola and pool -- are completely private for the guests of the villa.
Although totally restored Villa Fiano maintains its ancient structure therefore it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties.
The kitchen, the TV room and the yellow bedroom, although at the ground floor are not on the same level. Guests with walking difficulties have to know that although they can access the yellow bedroom and the kitchen from the exterior (avoiding the internal steps), the rest of the floor has short flights of stairs throughout. The access to the last floor bedroom is 20 cm lower than usual so watch your head going up to this bedroom!!
The beds in the twin bedroom, cannot be joined: they sit against opposite walls with a doorway in between.
