Tuscan Hot Springs?

Frances Mayes', in either Under the Tuscan Sun or in Bella Tuscany, mentions soaking her feet in the warm water flowing in a stream near a small village in Tuscany--it may have been Bagno Vignoni. Can anyone help by providing more information about this? We don't want the typical spa experience, but would love to sit by a thermal stream for awhile.

Molto grazie

ciao betsy

yes it could be bagno a vignoni. you are not allowed to put your feets inside the open bassin but there's a coverd bath where you can visit. it's nearby pienza and it's realy nice. oh and by the way, there between the covered bath and the public phone cabine there's a small bar who do have the best panini i ever eat! it's a hot tip!

tanti saluti

Maurizio, this is a great site.

Do you know the area near Pienza? Are you able to recommend any of the lodging offered on the site?

Molto grazie

Hi Betsy,
I don' t know any accomodation but you can find lots of information about them (Classification, prices, services, location, ...)

If you open this site and click in Accomodation at left, a page shows:

You can select the kind of accomodation you like and in the next page you can choose the place (Pienza?)

If you want a agriturism scroll to find
2) Rural Tourism & Agriculture

Betsy, I will be in Bagno Vignoni in about 3 weeks. Check out the 2 places to stay in this village by searching under the names of Hotel Posta Marcucci and Locanda Loggiato---the latter is a small B&B. Both are very nice and sit on the large pool that comprises the central part of town. This is a great location to explore the Val d'Orcia.

Oh Bob, you are a real sweetie! I've already e-mailed Locanda Loggiato (we like small B&Bs as opposed to hotels). Have a great time in Italy--I'm already waiting for your travelogue when you return.

Buon Viaggio
