Nature and wellness

Thermal springs, outdoor activities, and food & wine

The Val d’Orcia is a fascinating corner of Tuscany. It is less crowded than the Chianti region, which experiences more mass tourism. This valley, with its hilltop towns, is a geographic area that is rich in history, natural beauty and tons of activities you can participate in.

There are various thermal springs that are easily reached, the most famous is perhaps that of Bagno Vignoni and San Quirico d’Orcia, whose healing waters are optimal for the treatment of osteoarthritis, extra-articular rheumatisms (lower back pain from rheumatism, tendinitis), cellulite, alterations of vain circulation, gynecological as well as dermatological issues.

Chianciano is another town that has many types of thermal baths (including sensory thermal experiences) and can satisfy the needs of various types of clients from young to not-so-young.

The most beautiful and scenic of the thermal baths are perhaps those of San Filippo, in Castiglione d’Orcia. This natural hot springs features an enormous waterfall with white limestone deposits and is hidden in a magical place in the woods that is sure to capture your imagination and heart.

 

The landscape of rolling hills that connects Siena to the Val d’Orcia is very famous, with certain spots being a true symbol of Tuscany.

Our region offers the possibility for many experiences such as biking, truffle hunting, hiking and horseback riding.

And last but not least we must mention the incredible food of the region! The Val d’Orcia has a series of regional dishes that are truly divine, such as pici pasta with truffle or garlic, steaks, and the local Pecorino sheep cheese. Just pull up a chair to the table and order – everything is good. These dishes can of course all be paired with a wonderful glass of Brunello di Montalcino wine.
