Thermal baths close to Montepulciano recommended for wellness holidays
18 September 2017
With the arrival of fall, you are probably started planning activities, yet it is also a great time to spend a relaxing stay, forgetting the hectic pace of everyday life.
Montepulciano is a great choice for wellness holidays, both for the relaxing landscapes that characterize Val di Chiana and Val d’Orcia, as well as the presence of thermal baths in the surroundings.
In this article we recommend 4 thermal baths to spend a day devoted to the “remise en forme”, perhaps along with a tasting of our wines.
Terme di Montepulciano
Montepulciano Thermal Baths are just within 20 km from Borgo Tre Rose, here you can join tailor made wellness treatments offered by a high-qualified staff.
Thanks to the therapeutic properties of sulphurous and salty water from the subsoil, it’s possible to cure a wide range of pathologies, detoxify your body and be ready to cope with autumn and winter.
Inside the Terme di Montepulciano there is also the Moonlight Cave (Grotta Lunare in Italian), a romantic hydromassage pool that seems to be dug into the rock.
Salt water has a toning effect on the body and this charming cave is perfect for couples who want to enjoy an unforgettable wellness path.
Treatment includes chromotherapy and tasting of aromatic herbal teas.

The Sensory Spa in Chianciano Terme are reachable in about half an hour from our hotel and are among the most renowned wellness centers, due to the wide range of facilities available: the Theia Thermal Pools, the Sillene Thermal Baths and the Acqua Santa and Fucoli Parks.
The source Sillene was already known to the Etruscans and Romans, while the Sensory Spa are the perfect combination of the most innovative treatments and the enchanting charm of the natural scenery of the magnificent Tuscan countryside.
Depending on the chosen path, you can focus on different goals: purifying, energizing, balancing, relaxing or tasting, each featuring specific treatments and access to whirlpools, two saunas, Turkish baths, emotional showers and the source of the Acqua Santa (a sculpture that evokes the source Santissima).

San Casciano dei Bagni
Did you know that the area of San Casciano dei Bagni boasts 42 thermal springs? This hamlet, 50 km away from Montepulciano, offers a double opportunity for those who want to regenerate and find their inner balance.
From the square of San Casciano, in fact, you can walk to the Bagno Grande and the Bagno Bossolo, the natural pools fed by the thermal springs.
Here you can dive freely in the thermal waters that reach the temperature of 39° C and relax even in winter.
Alternatively, you can book a wellness treatment at the Fonteverde Spa, a wellness center specialized in aesthetic, cosmetic and hydrotherapy treatments.
San Casciano dei Bagni is located in the southernmost part of the province of Siena, near Cetona and Amiata mountains.
We suggested visiting Bagno Vignoni in the post Must-Sees Destinations in Montepulciano Surroundings, since it is one of the most amazing hamlets that you can see in Tuscany.
As it is no longer possible to access the large rectangular tub located in the heart of the historic center, we recommend free thermal baths, located where the cliff on which the village rises degrade towards the Orcia River.
The closest Spa is right in Piazza delle Sorgenti, is called Le Terme, and is provided with swimming pools and a Roman sauna, ideal for thoroughly purifying and toning the skin.
The beneficial properties of these thermal waters are due to the presence of salts, calcium, iron carbonates, sodium and magnesium sulphates, and the water temperature reaches 49 ° C.
Moreover, Bagno Vignoni is an hamlet that over the centuries it was attended by Pope Pius II, Catherine of Siena and Lorenzo de‘ Medici, very special testimonials!
