Terme di Saturnia. Natural hot springs and luxury in Tuscany’s Maremma region  

Wednesday, 12 January 2022 11:18

The Maremma’s Terme di Saturnia spa is a group of hot springs, with a luxury hotel, located in Tuscany, at the foot of the medieval village of Saturnia. The Maremma borders the Tyrrhenian Sea and includes much of south-western Tuscany and part of northern Latium, and the sulphurous spring waters have a temperature of around 37.5 °C (99.5 °F).

The luxury Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort sits around four outdoor thermal pools, from which rise evocative clouds of steam, with beautiful vistas over the surrounding Maremma landscape much of which is still wild. The complex also has vascular paths with cold and hot water, a relaxation area, wellness center and the Spa Cafe. 

Waterfalls cascading into rock pools

Terme di Saturnia’s waters spring from a volcanic crater where the pool of the complex is located, and then flow along a natural stream called the Gorello for about 500 meters. Here a drop creates a waterfall that cascades into an old mill, forming a series of natural pools carved into the rock on several levels.

Delightful even in the coldest months of the year

The series of waterfalls issuing from the pools are located in open country but are easy to access. A couple of kilometers before arriving you get a wonderful view of the waterfalls in the distance. And it is made even more impressive by the clouds of steam that perpetually rise over this enchanted place. To step into the warm water of the natural pools is a true delight even in the coldest months. However, it is a good idea to keep your bathrobe not too far away so you can cover up quickly as soon as you exit the hot water. 

The hot pools are open at all hours

These waterfalls are accessible every day at all hours, and bathing at night under the stars is an experience that you should not miss.  In this case you will need a flashlight, especially when there is no moon. And remember, these natural pools are in open countryside so you will not find bathrooms or changing rooms.
