What you'll do

Embark on a journey to ancient healing springs in the enchanting area of Val d'Orcia, south of Siena.

We’ll begin with an espresso at my favourite local cafe in the picturesque town of Bagno Vignoni, a village known for its miraculously curative waters. We will then explore the town’s architectural and archeological gems, from the town square to the volcanic springs where we’ll soak our feet while chatting about the curiosities of this ancient town.

After a short drive, we’ll explore the hot springs of Bagni San Filippo. We shall immerse ourselves in nature as we enjoy a short walk through the magical surrounding woodlands that culminates in our discovery of the wild pool area.

There, we will enjoy the pure water as it bubbles down the waterfalls and learn how the rich deposits of thermal mud are perfect for a natural beauty treatment. Be ready to cover your face and body with mud and feel rejuvenated inside and out!

The natural magic of these places will bring you a unique sense of peace and calmness. This is the perfect escape from the city life to meet lovely people and explore the wonders of Tuscany.

This experience is open to guests of all ages, including kids. I have prepared a fun and educational activity on appreciating the importance of water for the young ones.

I'm a passionate traveller obsessed with irresistibly good food, captivating history, and the lovely landscape of my home -- Tuscany. Having lived in Asia and the UK for many years, I’ve returned to Val d'Orcia where my family owns a beautiful liberty house in the center of a tiny, medieval village. I’ve worked as an architect for over 15 years, studying Tuscany’s historical architecture, and I’m excited to share the intricacies and beauty of my hometown.

The places were stunning and unique. Claudia was/is a very friendly host; personable, kind and highly knowledgeable about the area - finding little gems in hidden places that only locals know. We would strongly recommend this to anyone - best host, and best Airbnb experience to date!

We had a very great experience with Claudia's tour and saw different termal springs and also got to know very local dishes in Tuscany. Without her we wouldn't have found these kind of locations. I totally recommend this tour through the nature. 🙏🏾

The real gem in this experience is Claudia. She is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, fun and has a real passion of her land and its history. Throughout the tour we were really in awe of Tuscany and had a great time talking about the Italian way of life and its values that we shared. In the end we forgot that we were in a tour and it felt like we spent the morning with a friend. We hope to see each other soon if we do move to Italy in the end!

Amazing tour! It was all and more than expected! We saw 3 different bathing sites and finished our tour in a scenic little tourist "town". Definitely would recommend this to anyone. Expecially to those that would like to find more and taste the pulse of the local life. We should say also something about the guide. Claudia was amazing. She knows all the hidden places that only the locals know, give you a lot of good recommendations to explore on your own, can tell you where, when and what the locals do, but most importantly she is a great person to have besides you on your trip. She is more than welcome to contact us if ever in our parts. Would definitely recommend this!
