The palpable joy of stepping in the light is in itself a golden, sunny, sensual, unique experience when you are spending time in southern Tuscany. This extraordinary beautiful stretch of Italy sits between Rome and Florence with open breathtaking views to the Mount Amiata, the unchanged profiles of the hills that we admire in the old master Tuscan paintings. San Casciano dei Bagni is an unspoilt medieval village, beautiful, and rather well kept secret south of Siena. It lies less than one hour drive from Perugia airport and 1 ½ from Rome and Florence airports. Helipads are available nearby. Montepulciano, Firenze, Siena, Arezzo and Assisi are ½ an hour away.
The old Roman spa - from which the village derives its name - has just been refurbished offering eight natural hot water pools, beauty and health treatments. There are superb qualities wine tastings in the village and nearby cities, but the real secret beauty lies in the old roman roads with no traffic taking you to the medieval magical towns, full of visual beauty.
