We deeply thank you in advance for your cooperation and respect of the rules , in order to attend quickly, efficiently and scrupulously to the duties we are requested to.
HYGIENE AND HOUSEKEEPING PROCEDURES:
It has always been a crucial mission of ours to scrupulously clean and sanitize the apartments and all the rooms before the arrival of our guests. We will continue today with an even greater scruple: all the common areas and the items most frequently touched (such as light switches, common door handles and so on) will be sanitized daily. All accommodations, at each release, will be cleaned and sanitized, according to the following procedures:
1) the cleaning staff responsible for the accommodations will be equipped with PPE (personal protective equipment) required by current regulations (mask, gown, gloves, cap)
2) the accommodations will be sanitized with specific and certified products.
3) Each accommodation will be cleaned with specific, certified products or treated with 2% sodium hypochlorite or ethyl alcohol
4) Unfortunately, this time, any furnishings and decorations that, under normal circumstances, would have decorated the accommodation and created atmosphere, will be removed. Where present, they will be sanitized.
5) Unless specifically requested by you, for your safety and according with the current regulations, the accommodations will be offered this year without the bed prepared in advance. Sheets and bathroom linen will be delivered in special packaged envelopes, certified by the supplier company. Everything that comes into contact with guests and that cannot be thrown away and/or changed (such as mattresses, blankets, sofas, chair cushions, curtains) will be subjected to sanitization with certified products.
6) The guests’ PPE, as well as the linen of each accommodation, will be removed according with specific law requirements.
In the common areas and in the swimming pool sanitization will be carried out daily, according to the following rules:
1) the swimming pool – solarium will be sanitized every evening at 19:00. For this reason, our guests are required to free the area within that hour and refrain from using this space until the reopening of the following morning.
2) the pool water has always been treated with certified products, according to the low procedures, which make the water always safe to use. However, this year, for further prudence, checks of pH and chlorine will be intensified
3) each common area will be sanitized daily and, at every change of guests, all external furnishings given in personal use to each apartment will also be cleaned and sanitized.
AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS:
As every year, the pre-opening provides for the deep cleaning and sanitation of the air conditioning systems, performed by technicians who issue certification. The ventilation grills will however be periodically sanitized with clean cloths, humidified with a concentration of 75% ethyl alcohol.
REORGANIZATION OF COMMON OUTDOOR SPACES:
In order to accomplish the several anti-contagion rules, it was inevitable, but also a reason of pride for us, to look for new opportunities and solutions, appropriate to the situation:
1) each apartment on the first floor (unlike normal circumstances) will be provided of its own garden space outside, furnished with private table and chairs, to give everyone the opportunity (after these long months of lockdown) to freely enjoy the open air. Each location in the garden will be identified with the number of the apartment you are using and will be available only to the family staying in that apartment, all the holiday long
2) The same measure will be applied to the solarium in the swimming pool area, which (for this year) will be divided into spots spaced 1.50 m apart. Each space will be marked by the number of your apartment and reserved exclusively for your family. Each apartment will have two deck chairs (and, if requested, a chair) that will remain to your private use during all your stay.
Our pre-covid breakfast was a unique moment, thanks to its amazing buffet! But we are definitely sure that, with few more precautions, we will be able just the same to offer our guests a special and tasty good morning!
On our side, we have a splendid and wide terrace overlooking a breathtaking panorama, which gives us plenty of room to correctly space the tables between them. Beside this:
1) The staff service will be given every morning all anti-covid PPE (mask, latex gloves, apron, cap)
2) the self-service buffet will be transformed in a served – at – table buffet.
3) each apartment will be assigned an exclusive table, the same for all the holiday. The guests will have just to sit down and choose among our tasty proposals: our staff will take care!
4) to allow the agriturismo to provide a safe and efficient service, this year, unlike the previous years, we ask you to book the restaurant service in the same moment you confirm your accommodation. A small restriction due to the purpose of offering a perfect and safe service.
5) In order to guarantee the required social distancing but avoiding waitings and wastings of time, two shifts of breakfast will be proposed: the first from 8:30 to 9:30, the second from 9:00 to 10:00 . The agriturismo, according as much as possible with your needs and preferences, will communicate to each guest his turn
6) superfluous to underline that tables, chairs, buffet table will be sanitized daily and repeatedly. The table set, as usual, will be given freshly laundered or changed if disposable, at each guest change.
7) to guarantee safety and high quality standards, this year the breakfast service cannot be available on the departure day from the hotel.
