Located in the Maremma area of Tuscany, Saturnia is a tiny spa town famous for its ‘Cascatelle’ the unusual waterfalls just outside the village, where there are calcified pools formed in the rock used for bathing in the warm thermal 37.5°C spring water. The area has long been popular with visitors due to the properties of the thermal waters, rich in sulfur and minerals, that have beneficial effects on the skin, joints and digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems.
Its position in the heart of the Tuscan countryside is ideal for those who would like to explore the area by car, or who just want to relax and admire the splendid panoramic views from the hotel. Mountain biking and hiking are also popular activities.
There are a few good restaurants around the village, all offering traditional Tuscan food and wine, but here the emphasis is on relaxation and not nightlife.
