A Charming week-end in Val d'Orcia

A glass of wine and a hot tub with Tuscan hills view

Italy is plenty of relaxing places in the middle of the nature, where you can spend a week-end dedicated to physical and mental wellness. Tuscany is a region that offers a wide choice: in Val d'Orcia you will be able to spend a few days of real charm.

Val d'Orcia is a wide valley between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, near the border with Umbria. Characterized by hilly landscapes famous all over the world and by so many medieval villages, in this area you’ll find some typical food and wine like Cinta Senese pork, “pecorino di Pienza” (a cheese) and Montalcino’s Brunello wine.

One of the magnificent spa villages of this valley is Bagno Vignoni, an hamlet of a few people belonging to the town of San Quirico d'Orcia. At the center of the village stands the sixteenth century’s hot spring bath: it’s rectangular and it contains a source of hot spring water steaming out of the underground aquifer of volcanic origins.

The hotels in Bagno Vignoni and nearby offer indoor and outdoor thermal baths, where guests can relax in summer as in winter. In addition to body care, you have to remember that Bagno Vignoni offers also the excellence of the Tuscan cuisine, like the famous meat, cheese and the wines.

About wine we have to mention another village in this area: Montepulciano, famous for its vineyards that make it unique in the world. The best wineries open their doors to visitors for tastings and tours.
