Saturnia And Terme Di Saturnia

Oct 10, 2007
Forgotten for several centuries, Saturnia is today, home to some of the most beautiful thermal springs in the world. Located in southern Tuscany, Saturnia is part of the Maremma, a secluded natural paradise. Long neglected by vacationers for the grandeur of Florence and Siena, the Maremma is an untouched countryside of immaculate beauty, where the small towns are sparsely populated and filled with rich traditions and enthralling histories. Saturnia itself is a charming medieval village, surrounded by olive groves and thick Mediterranean vegetation. Rich in Estruscan remains; Saturnia is a place of great cultural and historical splendour and is also recognised for the high standard of its local cuisine.

Established in the second half of the 19th century, the thermal springs of Saturnia are famed for both their beauty and healing properties. Each year thousands of people flock to enjoy the waters which maintain a constant luxurious temperature of 37C. Close to the town, the thermal waters are channeled into a series of natural pools carved out of rock and fed by a magnificent waterfall. This remarkable pool provides the perfect scenery for a relaxing bath, where guests can simply envelope themselves in the beauty of nature, enjoying the warm water surrounded by a rich green countryside and calmed by the sounds of the cascading waterfall.

For visitors who want to treat themselves, the Health Spa in Saturnia is open all year round and provides an all over pampering experience. Here the thermal springs are transformed into well maintained pools, perfect for children and adults alike. Guests can also enjoy the circulation walks, saunas, tanning beds, facials, the gymnasium, massages and various kinds of therapy including physiotherapy and mud therapy.

The presence of sulphur in the water means the thermal springs of Saturnia have numerous health benefits. Whilst providing a lovely hot bath, the springs can also cure various illnesses and ailments, and are extremely beneficial for the respiratory system and skin.

In recent times people have come from all over the world to bath in the pure waters of the thermal springs of Terme di Saturnia. The splendour of the baths are complimented by the sheer beauty of the surrounding unspoiled countryside and together they create a truly unforgettable holiday experience.
