Country Hotel in Tuscany
Your luxury 5 star spa hotel among the Italian Tuscany Hills
Sometimes, what really makes a spa stand out among the others is the setting: wonderful natural landscapes that turn these wellness oases into extraordinarily beautiful and quiet places.
When the wonderful artistic and natural background is added with the utmost quality of treatments, the extreme expertise of operators, tasty food and a very friendly team, the oasis – the Adler Thermae at Bagno Vignoni – becomes a must-go for a pause of total relax.
The Adler Thermae is close to the evocative Medieval village of Bagno Vignoni, characterized by an ancient thermal basin (where the waters of the original source flow), surrounded by inns, historic houses and even a church, just like in the main square of a village.
This fairy-tale landscape – occupying the southern tip of the Province of Siena – is flanked by two historical towns which are world-famous for their wines: Montalcino with its Brunello in the west and Montepulciano with its “Vino Nobile” in the east, the two towns are just 35 km apart. Inbetween these two bastions of wine-making lies another UNESCO World Heritage site, Pienza, offering wonderful panoramic views at a height of 429 metres above sealevel.
The medieval town with its splendid Renaissance buildings is the first example of an ideal city based on the aesthetics of Renaissance times, a perfect balance between beauty and functionality.
In 2004, this “ideal landscape” was accordingly added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. As the committee put it: “Val d’Orcia is an unique example of the Renaissance that lends outstanding expressions to the ideals of an aesthetic landscape.”
A typical feature of the Tuscan landscape is the “Crete Senesi”, the famous hills of clay that form the northern limit of Val d’Orcia. A “frozen sea of earthy waves” – that is how the Italian poet Mario Luzi once described what is easily the most popular photographic motif in Tuscany. They look as if a giant had gone over them with a wide plough, transforming the whole area into one vast landscape painting.
Actually these hills, known in the Middle Ages as the Accona Desert, have been shaped by the forces of erosion; they are much more barren than those in Val d’Orcia, but that is the source of their special beauty.
Val d’Orcia is a good place for growing wine and olives, cereals and herbs. The mild climate gives the inhabitants a strong sense of tranquility and guests the feeling that time is not important.
The liberating openness of the hilly countryside with its seasonal change of sometimes energizing sometimes calming colours, the cypress trees with their long evening shadows, dramatic cloudscapes alternating with the ubiquitous serenity of an immaculate azure blue sky – all that forms a unique breathtaking natural scenery that never ceases to captivate.
Discover the wonderful scenery on varied cycle routes with GPS coverage, visit pretty medieval towns, and enjoy well deserved relaxation on your return! The following items are included in the price of accommodation:
