The Experiences

For a journey or a holiday to be remembered, it must be characterized by new and authentic life experiences. This is why we have always tried to give extra importance to a simple weekend away from home, suggesting experiences which involve the senses as well as the spirit. We enjoy being able to satisfy wishes and requests, proposing different types of holiday as well as spa weekends, romantic weekends, holidays to recharge the batteries or to relax but also to be adventurous and have fun.

Bathing in the thermal water

In fine weather it is possible to bathe in the natural pools in Bagno Vignoni. We can recommend the wildest and least used places with breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery. It’s also possible to swim in the thermal swimming pool which is open every day except Thursday from 10.00am – 5.00pm. Staying with us at the Locanda also allows you special rates for the spa treatments in Bagno Vignoni. We offer free use of towels and swimming hats for the thermal swimming pool.

Walking

Come walking with us along the footpaths of the Val d’Orcia, you will discover the beautiful surrounding countryside and visit famous medieval villages with breathtaking views and some of the best walks in Tuscany. You will be able to explore places which aren’t so well known along with the nature and traditions of the area with an expert guide by your side.

Tasting

The excellent local produce allows us to organize a wide variety of food and wine tours according to the requests of our guests. We can guide you on your discovery of great Tuscan wines as we are close to both Montalcino and Montepulciano, famous for their Sangiovese vines which are used in the production of both Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. You will be able to taste the excellent Tuscan Extra-virgin olive oil, cured meat and Pecorino cheese from Pienza direct from their local producers.

Photography

Not the usual Tuscany but glimpses and scenes chosen for you. We organize tours to the most photographed views in the province of Siena and the Val d’Orcia as well as going to some more out of the way places to get some less obvious shots. You don’t need to be a professional photographer you just need to have a passion for taking that memorable photo while on holiday.
