A 5-star hotel in the heart of the Tuscan countryside

When we think of Italy, our minds often turn to iconic destinations such as sunny Sicily, famous Venice or imposing Rome. However, it would be a shame to overlook the splendour and cultural richness of Tuscany!

Tuscany is a region of timeless beauty, renowned for its verdant landscapes, rich cultural history and gastronomic delights. When I came to Terme Di Saturnia, I was literally enchanted by the charm of the surrounding area. Arriving at the hotel, I’m warmly greeted by the rolling hills of the golf course, while rows of cypress and olive trees stand in the background…

Charming rooms and suites and attentive staff

We are now at the entrance to Terme Di Saturnia. As soon as I stepped inside, I was immediately struck by its elegance, discreet luxury and friendly atmosphere! The common areas and decor are refined. After a first exploration of the hotel (it’s very big!), I head for my room, a Deluxe Room which has been allocated to me. As soon as I enter, I’m charmed by its welcoming character. The attractive marble bathroom, with bathtub and shower, is spacious. I can’t wait to try out the Active Beauty cosmetics range, Saturnia Bioplankton®, offered by the house! Finally, I’m delighted to discover the exquisitely soft king-size bed, which promises peaceful nights of sleep…

Then, as I walk through the room, I discover all the amenities available to make my stay as pleasant as possible. A well-stocked minibar, a coffee maker and kettle for preparing hot drinks at any time, and a selection of teas and coffees on tap. Everything has been thought of to make me feel at home and allow me to make the most of my time at Terme Di Saturnia.

The hotel offers 7 categories of accommodation, from double rooms to Deluxe Suites. Unfortunately, due to maximum occupancy, I did not have the opportunity to visit the suites during my stay. Nonetheless, once I’ve had a look around my room, I slip on my bathrobe and quickly head for the thermal baths, where I’m going to enjoy my first hot bath!

The natural therapeutic thermal waters of Terme Di Saturnia

The special feature of Terme Di Saturnia is, of course, its thermal waters. These natural waters have been renowned for their therapeutic benefits since ancient times. Spending time relaxing in these warm, soothing waters was a truly revitalizing experience. Cool winter weather is no problem, as the water maintains a perfect temperature of 37.5°C. So you can enjoy them all year round! It was a very pleasant moment, and I have to say that the surrounding scenery adds to the serenity of the place.

But what makes this water so special? Quite simply, it derives its beneficial properties from bioplankton, an element naturally present in thermal springs. Bioplankton are plant micro-organisms made up of various species of algae and bacteria, which thrive in mineral- and nutrient-rich waters. In the case of the waters of Terme di Saturnia, bioplankton help enrich the water with essential nutrients such as vitamins, amino acids and trace elements. These compounds have beneficial effects on skin, muscles and joints, helping to relieve tension and promote relaxation. Water can also help improve blood circulation, stimulate the immune system and promote tissue healing.

Then, after a hot bath in the hot springs, I decide to try out the nearby sauna and hammam. Very pleasant moment, too!

Terme Di Saturnia: a 20,000 m² spa park

Terme Di Saturnia boasts a 20,000 m² spa park! It’s almost difficult to explore it all in three days, so varied are the wellness areas. The facility boasts 4 outdoor thermal pools, relaxing whirlpools, several saunas, an argilarium and a lawn with deckchairs and parasols for relaxing in the sun.

The center offers a sampling service for blood chemistry and genetic analysis, providing customized solutions for each individual. If you wish, you can also consult the establishment’s naturopath . Whether you’re looking for advice on your general well-being, or to benefit from a reiki or energy rebalancing session, she’ll be there to meet your needs and guide you towards a better physical and mental balance.

A menu of top-of-the-range treatments

As for the Spa menu, it’s very varied! You’ll find everything from classic facials and body treatments to anti-aging, detox and weight-loss treatments. The hotel also offers massages of all kinds. As for me, I was lucky enough to test the house’s signature treatment with bioplankton. The ritual began with a full-body scrub, followed by a soothing massage using Thermal Plankton Body Cream. It was a very high quality service, and I left feeling totally relaxed.

Then I tried a session of cryotherapy. In a specially designed room, I was exposed to very low temperatures for a few minutes. This technique is known for its benefits on blood circulation and muscle and joint pain. But it also has mental benefits: after my session, I felt revitalized and full of energy!

Yoga, fitness and hiking

At Terme Di Saturnia, I also had the opportunity to explore the wellness activities on offer, including yoga and walking. I opted for an early morning private hike to discover the hotel’s peaceful surroundings. It was a very pleasant experience, followed bya relaxing yoga session that got my day off to a good start. Afterwards, I visited the picturesque village of Pitigliano, just a few kilometers away. A must-see if you’re staying at Terme Di Saturnia!

And for fitness enthusiasts, there’s a gym and Pilates classes available throughout your stay. The establishment also organizes yoga retreats, such as the “Feminine Energy Yoga Retreat”, for an even more complete wellness experience.

Golf: an important feature at Terme Di Saturnia

Terme di Saturnia is also a paradise for golf lovers. Nestled in the heart of the magnificent Tuscan countryside, the resort boasts a breathtakingly beautiful 18-hole golf course. Enthusiasts are bound to be delighted by the quality of the course, which offers the ideal setting for a memorable day’s play. For me, it was a first! Accompanied by Procolo, the golf manager, I discovered this fascinating activity with great enthusiasm.

Terme Di Saturnia’s delicious Tuscan cuisine

During my stay at Terme Di Saturnia, I had the pleasure of discovering delicious, typically Tuscan cuisine! Every evening, I feasted at Restaurant 1919, the establishment’s main restaurant. I was seduced by its refined, high-quality cuisine, featuring seasonal ingredients. The varied menu also offers daily specials and healthy options that change daily. I particularly enjoyed the chicken supreme with ricotta-stuffed cabbage cannelloni, as well as a delicious beef tartare revisited, served on a bed of breaded polenta. The desserts, also carefully prepared, were a veritable explosion of flavors. All under the direction of talented chef Salvatore Quarto!

For lunch, the Bar offers a selection of quick and healthy dishes, perfect for a light lunch break. The à la carte menu features avocado toast, delicious club sandwiches, fresh salads and other light fare. Finally, for a typically Tuscan culinary experience, I had the opportunity to dine at the Trattoria La Stellata restaurant. Nestled in the heart of the golf course, this restaurant offers magnificent views of the surrounding hills. I had the pleasure of tasting dishes characteristic of the region, featuring high-quality local ingredients. The meat was particularly delicious, and the whole meal was a true celebration of authentic Tuscan cuisine.
