Interaction with guests
In addition to access to the public spaces, guests have their breakfast in the dining room, access to the swimming pool (in the summer months), and access to the forest and olive groves around the house.
The Rucellai - Piqué family continues to live in the house, but tries to remain unobtrusive, allowing guests to feel alone and undisturbed as much as possible. The grounds remain a working farm and guest can expect to hear occasional noise from the tractor or other equipment as work goes on in the olive groves and the small vineyard. From late October through November, olive oil production can be seen and heard, and the air is filled with the aroma of fresh pressed olive oil.
