The Val d’Orcia is one of those fantastic places to visit during any season. This rural area of Tuscany, near Siena, offers unparalleled scenery and immense emotions.
The landscape enchants for bright and vivid colors, together with vast unique views extending to infinity!
Stopping to take pictures here is a great pleasure; time gets slow, and you just need to enjoy the superb spectacle that unfolds before your eyes.
In this particular natural scenery you can enjoy one of the many fabulous spas in the area, among the best thermal springs throughout Italy.
I particularly recommend the thermal baths in Bagno Vignoni, timeless village about 10 km away from the most famous hill town of Pienza. As soon as you get to the core of the village, you immediately get struck by the huge pool dating from the Renaissance, that is also the town’s main square. Hot thermal waters are flowing out from the pool from over 2000 years!
Piazza delle Sorgenti’s lovely stone houses and palaces are reflected in the water; while the green Tuscan hills all around, make this medieval village one of the most beautiful and best preserved of Italy. This is the ideal place for a relaxing stay!
Locanda del Loggiato, a special place
On a tiny square next to Piazza delle Sorgenti is the Locanda del Loggiato, an incredibly charming and romantic place to stay. Sabrina and Barbara, the two amiable hosts of the Locanda, will give you a warm welcome! Breakfast is delicious; homemade cakes and local products like Tuscan bread, honey, yogurt, jams, and other delicacies. Just few steps away are the thermal pools where you can relax!
Bagno Vignoni thermal baths and waters possess extraordinary therapeutic properties that you can enjoy in one of the many spas in town.
