The residence soon became a popular destination for hosting social gatherings, with a long list of prominent guests enjoying its thermal benefits, including George IV of England, Gustaf of Sweden, Carlo Goldoni and Vittorio Alfieri. Today visitors can immerse themselves in a day of relaxation, enjoy a massage or indulge in a wide array of spa treatments.

Bagni di San Filippo

Bagni San Filippo, a stunning outdoor sulphur spring tucked away in the province of Siena, is a sight to behold. The place is stunning, and you will be amazed by the white limestone deposits, which have created impressive rock formations and cascades over the millennia.

The water temperature is approximately 25 degrees Celsius, making it a perfect place to relax and soak away your cares.

When to Visit Bagni San Filippo:
The best time to visit Bagni San Filippo is during the off-season, as we feel it gets too crowded during the summer months. If you are planning on visiting during the high season, we recommend avoiding the weekends and visiting during the morning or evening hours.

Terme di Sassetta

Tucked away near Livorno in Val di Cornia, Sassetta is a small hamlet that may not boast the widespread renown of some of the other springs on our list, but that only adds to its charm.

This area, celebrated for its thermal springs since Etruscan and Roman times, houses the Terme di Sassetta, possibly identifiable as the Bagno del Re from 13th-century documents.

The thermal waters at Terme di Sassetta are uniquely rich in sulphates, calcium, and trace minerals. With a source temperature of 51°C, these waters have been harnessed for centuries to alleviate respiratory ailments, skin conditions, and musculoskeletal diseases.

Mirroring the architectural beauty of Etruscan Roman baths, the thermal complex is a modern tribute to ancient wellness traditions. It houses three balneotherapy pools—two outdoor and one indoor—along with a sweat chamber, showers enhanced with chromotherapy and aromatherapy, a Kneipp path, and a relaxation area.

At Salogi, we highly recommend the massages at Terme di Sassetta, complemented by the ambient tranquillity, are notably exceptional.

If you are planning a visit to the Sassetta Thermal Springs, here are some properties in our portfolio that are close by:

-    La Capanna
-    Villa di Montegemoli
