Please note that there is a narrow, external set of steps on one side of the house which leads down to the apartment & pool area, a partially open staircase in the house and a sloped, grassy bank to the olive grove which will require supervision of very young children in these areas. The property is unfortunately not suitable for guests who are wheelchair users . For more information, please see the Fact Sheet and/or contact us at info@tuscany-ortone.com
