Relaxing holidays at the Spa in Tuscany
Farmhouse near the thermal baths in Tuscany
Tuscany is a land rich in natural water springs with healing and therapeutic properties. Many of these are located near the cities of art and can be an opportunity to combine a cultural holiday to a wellness stay in Tuscany in a farmhouse or a B&B in the countryside, enjoying relaxation, genuine food, excellent wines and outdoor activities, such as walks, bike rides and rides along the trails.
When we need a relaxing holiday we immediately think of a Farmhouse with Wellness Center or a beautiful spa where to bask in baths, mud and massages. Of course, we know that these services are not always so cheap, therefore, here is the solution: among the many spas of Tuscany there are some completely free, open to all, and for this very crowded, in which to go whenever we feel like it. In addition, the high temperature of these thermal waters allows you to make a welness weekend at a natural spa at any time of the year.
Free baths of Bagni di San Filippo
Little known by tourists, the Free Baths of Bagni di San Filippo are located in the South of Tuscany, between the Val d'Orcia and Mount Amiata in an evocative place immersed in the green of a wood, near Pienza . Characterized by a temperature of over 50° and the concentration of minerals, here the waters have created white limestone deposits that contrast with the green of the trees and the blue of the sky on sunny days, making the landscape so wonderful.
Free baths of Bagno Vignoni
Bagno Vignoni Free Baths, located at a few km from Siena, flow at a temperature of about 50° in a large Romanic basin which is also the town square, Piazza delle Sorgenti, where the steam of the hot water creates a wonderful scenic effect. To immerse yourself in the waters of the Baths, however, you have to move under the Parco dei Mulini where, in a flat area between the Mediterranean scrub , at the foot of a limestone cliff, there are some pools where water flows from the square through the village up to the Parco dei Mulini precisely.
Free Spas: Terme di Saturnia
The Free Baths of Saturnia are probably the most famous spas in Tuscany. Located in the heart of the Maremma, in Manciano, in an uncontaminated nature, the water gushes at 37° C and allows you to make healthy baths both in summer and in winter. The main waterfalls and the best known are the Cascate del Mulino, sulphureous water rich in mineral salts and sulfur that have naturally dug out small pools in the rock.
Free Spas: Terme di Petriolo
Immersed in a landscape of singular beauty, the Free Baths of Petriolo are among the most renowned in Tuscany. Very close to Siena, the natural Petriolo pools have formed naturally from limestone and sulfur deposits. Located along the river Farma, these springs are surrounded by lush nature and water gush at 43° C allowing you to immerse yourself in any season.
Free Spas: Terme di San Casciano dei Bagni
Near the border with Tuscany you will find the Free Baths of San Casciano dei Bagni, with more than forty thermal springs that flow at an average temperature of 40° and which are the same built and used by the Romans. It is worth taking a tour before or after the baths, in the town of San Casciano dei Bagni, counted among the most beautiful villages in Italy.
