Warm-water pools and wonderful walks

Perched on the edge of the stunning hilltop town of Sarteano, you’ll soon discover that Parco delle Piscine is a parc that does things a little differently.

Set in 50 hectares of glorious countryside, there are three pool complexes: one for kids; one exclusive to parc guests (open from the end of June); and the other attracting visitors from across the region. It’s no surprise they’re popular; each is fed by thermal springs at a constant 24°C. It's environmentally-friendly measures like these that have helped to win the owners of this spacious parc the prestigious AEMAS award for green behaviour. There are also playgrounds, a cinema and sports too. When you're ready to explore, take a short walk into Sarteano and sample more Tuscan delights at one of the local restaurants.
