Off the beaten path

Bagno Vignoni

A little jewel in the heart of the Val d’Orcia.

Located just 20 minutes drive from Pienza, near the lovely town of San Quirico d’Orcia, on the antique CASSIA road SS1 that connect Siena and Rome.

The name of this ancient village derives from Vignoni, already a famous castle in the 11 C, whose traces dominate the hill over the village. The thermal waters were frequented by the Romans. A porch-type bridge passes over the waters flowing from the bath towards the thermal establishments and subsequently going on to feed a series of mills situated along the steep banks of the river.

Sit under the Porch with a glass of wine and relax
