Saturnia, once home to the Etruscan civilization, is now a site of historical and cultural interest, at the heart of the Tuscan Maremma.

Just a few kilometres from the village, is a lush geothermal spring, with steamy water reaching temperatures of 37°. The warm water flows across the land in what is known as the ‘Gorello’ and then becomes a waterfall with shallow rock pools that can be enjoyed all year round. The luxurious Terme di Saturnia SPA & Golf Resort welcomes day visitors, offering the use of their facilities to non-guests.

Near Saturnia there are plenty of opportunities for trekking and horse riding. Within 20/30kilometres there are multiple archaeological sites and medieval towns, such as Montemerano, Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana.. A little further away, is the lake of Bolsena, and the archaeological sites of Vulci, Tuscania and Tarquinia are one hour’s drive away. Other nearby attractions include the WWF Nature Reserve of the lake Burano, the city of Capalbio, the Giardino dei Tarocchi (Tarot Garden), and the Uccellina National Park.

Day trips can be made to the famous Argentario coast, where you can visit Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano, or any of the beaches that line the coast. From the ports, it’s possible to visit the wonderful islands of the Tuscan Archipelago. If you’re thinking of travelling further afield, we will be happy to give you plenty of advice. The Monte Amiata nature park (50km), Rome (170km), Siena (115km), Florence (187km), (Pisa (212km) are just a few locations you may want to visit.

Throughout spring and summer the Tuscan region comes to life with food festivals and celebrations where locals come together to party, eat and sell local produce
