In the Tuscan countryside still uncontaminated, coloured with the autumn colours, a weekend able to regenerate you in spirit and in the body, it will teach you much about wine and the typical cuisine, but you will also make plenty of new friends.

In other words a countryside atmosphere like long ago which will really make you feel that you are in Tuscany.

The cost of a two hour wellness experience is euro 25.00 per person.
The wellness centre has been created in an annexe of the villa in front of a breathtaking view of the Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi. To the refined but very modern design of the structures, it has been added hand-made tiles whose designs are based on 19th century drawings and recall Turkish baths and Ingres’s Odalisques. The possibility of being able to taste wine while bathing in warm water in a mini pool contributes to the slightly sexy atmosphere. The Spa area offers Turkish baths, sauna, relaxation room, sensorial shower and Jacuzzi.
