Within the boundaries of the property is also a picturesque private pond, regularly registered and surrounded by woodland. A series of cleaning works are underway to make the area around the lake less “wild” and more enjoyable.

There are two swimming pools on the property. The main pool is a 12 × 5 m pool located in the garden, offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the outskirts of the city of Florence on the horizon. It includes a stone solarium, a whirlpool corner, and an outdoor shower. Adjacent to guesthouse A, on a slightly lower terrace, there is a second pool exclusively for the use of that building.
