It’s not just the silky-smooth wine Tuscany is great for — the Italian region does health and wellness in style, too
Tucked away in the sleepy village of Bagno Vignoni, this luxurious health and wellness retreat is situated around 40 miles south of Siena. A traditional Italian hillside villa, the main hotel is spread over three floors, accessed by a polished travertine stairway curving around a floor-to-ceiling crystal chandelier.
From my suite’s balcony, the beautiful Val d’Orcia unfurls before me, a patchwork of tree-lined fields and terraced vineyards. The perfect base for exploring the countryside, the hotel offers free daily cycling and hiking tours, plus an app with recommended routes. At breakfast, lycra-clad cyclists sit among robed spa-goers, tucking into fresh fruit and omelettes in the open-air atrium; make-your-own juices are a nice touch.
