Bagni San Filippo – secret SPA escape in Tuscany
When I plan places to visit with Me & Mom retreat in Tuscany, it is not so easy to decide where to go. There are plenty lovely Tuscan villages and areas: historic sites, falls, gardens, parks, villas, beaches, spa centers. One of my favorite destinations – is a small Tuscan village called Bagni San Filippo. Historically known for its thermal water Bagni San Filippo is the ideal place for an intimate and relaxing SPA vacation. In Italy, there are plenty hot springs of hot water, known and used since Etruscan times and Romans for wellness purposes. Saturnia is the most popular among tourists. But I would recommend San Filippo as many tourists are still completely unaware of this place.
Bagni San Filippo is a tiny village of the Val D’Orcia located in southern Tuscany. The resort Terme San Filippo features a swimming pool Hotel and wellness center. Outstanding SPA and beauty treatments offered thanks to the use of natural water, the mud and sediments. Fosso Bianco is the perfect place for nature lovers. A hot spring streams in the woods and pools where you can swim all the year long and enjoy the unique limestone formations that for their shapes are called ‘the glacier.’
After the Spa delight, you can enjoy Tuscan cuisine in one of the local restaurants and admire the nature.
Moreover, Bagni San Filippo is the ideal base for visiting many other attractions of southern Tuscany, tasting local products and fine wines. Where to go else? Read my list of 6 must-visit places in Tuscany.
