Pienza - Val d'Orcia - Siena - Tuscany

Hot springs, wellness centers

The Val d'Orcia and Le Crete areas are full of thermal activity from deep inside the earth, providing several excellent hot springs that are enjoyed by people of all ages! For those who wish to luxuriate in spas with personal services (massages, cold water plunges, hot mud masks, etc.), you will find these nearby in Bagno Vignoni, Terme Rapolano, Chianciano Terme, and San Casciano dei Bagni. Our personal favorite is an outdoor hot spring called Bagni di San Filippo, where the "White Whale" (an enormous build-up of calcium created over eons by the minerals in the hot spring water) can be found by walking on a beautiful trail into the woods, and enjoying the warm pools–-free of charge.


The garden of Cretaiole is perfect for yoga, with gorgeous views--so peaceful and serene. In the area there are yoga instructors that teach Ashtanga and Acro Yoga who can come to Cretaiole to give lessons.


Enjoy the pleasures of massage at either a nearby wellness spa, or better yet, in your apartment or in the ancient olive orchard at Cretaiole. You can choose among several massage techniques: classic, relaxing, swedish, and lymphodraining. The therapist's positive energy will flow through your body and your mind and you will feel … like you are in Paradise!
