Second most beautiful spas in Europe!
It is only 40 minutes from our farmhouse , towards the interior of the Maremma. In Saturnia you can take advantage of both the spectacular public and private spas located just ahead.
The public thermal baths are nothing more than a river with turquoise-white streams and waterfalls, due to the strong presence of calcium. The temperature is constant around 37 degrees and its composition is sulphurous-carbon-sulphate-bicarbonate-alkaline-earthy. The public baths are free: they have two large parking areas and a refreshment bar. The access points are two:
1. from above, next to car park number two (in days of low turnout, however, car park number two is closed). From this access point there is a large garden and the river has created niches where it is very pleasant to stop despite the current being strong enough.
2. from below, near the car park number 1 and the bar, there is access to the river and the lower pool area.
The private spas are located in a modern, large complex, where you can find large marble tubs with variable water temperatures, as well as a series of services dedicated to relaxation and well-being.
