Why the Owner Chose Buonconvento:
This area of Tuscany is intensely beautiful and within easy reach of many of the most significant cultural sites in Italy - Siena is 20 minutes away, Montalcino 10 minutes, Pienza, S.Quirico and Bagno Vignoni 15 minutes by car. The area offers great opportunities for walking, riding or cycling through spectacular, rolling countryside. The local town of Buonconvento, is officially one of the most beautiful small towns in Italy and has everything one can want - good restaurants, bars, good delicatessens and craft shops where, among other items, you can order custom-made handbags at very good prices. The Val d'Orcia area is perhaps most well known for its thermal water or hot springs. The most extensive of these hot springs is Bagno Vignoni, located just a few miles from our Borgo House in Buonconvento. In medieval times Bagno Vignoni enjoyed great fame and many illustrious people came to cure their ailments with its water. The water gushes up in the center pool at a temperature of 50 degrees C. or 120 degrees F. This water is used to treat rheumatism, skin conditions and to heal fractures. Other hot springs located in the area are Saturnia Terme, Bagni San Fillippo and Bagni San Casciano. Visit this “living world” where harmony, serenity and beauty express themselves for all to experience.We would like you and your family to come and relax while you discover the beauty and charm of this historic village and region. Immerse yourself in Roman Tubs and discover ancient villages.
