In Italy, I wanted to go somewhere that was a bit unusual. I did a bit of research and discovered Saturnia. This place probably isn’t so secret if you are a local, but we were unusual visitors. There is a lot less English spoken here, we did manage to get by ok…
Being a small place, I assume your possessions are quite safe. But I couldn’t ask anyone. We were careful, and only took in our towels and the car key.
The temperature of the Terme isn’t the hot I’m used to. In Rotorua, where I’m from, the hot springs usually offer a variety of temperatures, and I like them really hot. This place was warm. Which was probably a good thing because it was in the middle of summer. I can’t imagine it would’ve been pleasant if it were as hot as those I’m used to! It might not be hot and toasty in the middle of winter though!
We stayed in a lovely place just up the hill from the hot springs (called B&B La Cantoniera, but this place is no longer listed with Booking.com). If you are thinking of going, I’m sure there are plenty of places to choose from with reasonable rates.
If you are travelling to Italy, and would like a lesser known place to add to your already long list of destinations, give Saturnia a go. It’s small, no crowds, peaceful and a really great place to stop and take in Tuscany.
