Thermal Baths, relax, nature and gourmet food
I'm always thinking about what I can propose to my guests during their stay at the villa. There are so many options to choose from in the area, things that we would do on a free day for example. So today I want to present two jewels of our region, where it is possible to spend a day of relaxation and eat good food: the Thermal baths of San Filippo and the gourmet restaurant Perillà.
A few kilometres from the villa sits Amiata mountain, a dormant volcano that is 1700 metres high. Situated in the natural, artistic and cultural park of the Val d'Orcia, Mount Amiata hosts the Terme di San Filippo with sulphurous thermal waters. For nature lovers the Fosso Bianco is the perfect place to go; a stream in the woods at the confluence of several hot springs that flows into a series of pools where you can bathe year-round, and enjoy the special limestone formations whose shapes have inspired evocative names such as ‘the white whale’ or ‘the glacier’.
After a relaxing bath, you can go to the village of Rocca d’Orcia, a short distance away and off the usual tourist route. Here you'll find an amazing little gourmet restaurant Perillà, where passion for cooking, quality and hospitality combine to make a perfect food experience.
