The Adler Thermae Spa & Wellness Resort in Bagno Vignoni has renovated its spa facilities and created two new saunas: a Finnish sauna with panoramic views over the undulating Tuscan hills and a bio-sauna, for those who prefer their sauna considerably cooler than the high Finnish temperatures.
The panoramic Finnish sauna, its plunge pool and relaxation area have 180-degree views over the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia.
This sauna detoxifies the body, flushing out body toxins, deep cleansing pores, strengthening the immune system and stimulating metabolism. Several times a day, a member of the spa team carries out a venting ritual, when waters laced with essential oils are sprayed onto the coals generating calming, energizing and purifying steam, dependent on the oil used.
The new bio-sauna is located in the middle of the spa’s tranquil lake which is set within a disused Travertine quarry; Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs and Adler Thermae is renowned for its thermal waters, which are piped direct from the source at Bagno Vignoni, a few minutes’ walk from the hotel). The bio-sauna helps to clear and regenerate the respiratory tract, relieves muscle tension and joint pain, and also stimulates metabolism.
These two new saunas add to the existing facilities which include Artemisia (a steam sauna with Tuscan herbs), Salino (an Etruscan sauna with salt steam), Grotta del Filosofo (a steam bath in a cave with magical relaxation area), Argillae (a Rasul clay bath) and Grotta Salina (an underground salt bath); the Grotta del Filosofo has also received a complete overhaul.
Adler Thermae has a highly qualified team of doctors and experts onsite who specialise in the fields of regenerative, preventive, complementary and gentle aesthetic medicine to supervise those guests who wish to detox, lose weight or undergo innovative non-invasive aesthetic treatments including mini-lifting with laser or Carb-O-xygen.
There are 87 rooms constructed in traditional Tuscan style, offering views overlooking the region’s hills and a bio-climatisation system that avoids the unhealthy effects of air-conditioning regulating both temperature and humidity automatically through pipe work in the walls, ceiling and floor, to ensure a total wellness experience.
Perugia (Ryanair from Stansted), is the closest airport, followed by Florence, Pisa and Rome.
