The swimming pool is immersed in a garden lush with flowers and olive trees offering a splendid view:
the rolling Tuscan hills. The swimming pool is treated with copper and silver which, unlike conventional chemical products, are oligo-elements that have beneficial effects on the human body, a fact acknowledged as early back as the ancient Greek and Roman times.Their action is essentially based on the slow release of copper and silver ions.Copper ions have a powerful algicidic effect, while silver ions are disinfectant and bacteriostatic.
They are combined with a small amount of chlorine to efficaciously disinfect the swimming pool water.
A correct and accurate water treatment is fundamental for a thorough hygiene of both water and bathers.

Radicondoli's castle was built in the twelfth century on the site of an existing inhabited centre, the same development took place for the castles of Belforte, Falsini and Fosini. There are archaeological findings going back to the early paleolithic times, through to the Etruscan and then the Roman periods. However, the most enduring aspect of the village is its medieval development which has been so well preserved so that we now have an almost totally unaltered medieval landscape and urban structure.
