The Adler Thermae Spa Resort is pretty much everything you imagine when you picture a luxury hotel in Tuscany. The views of the rolling Tuscan hills look like they’ve been plucked out of a magazine. You can enjoy them from almost everywhere in the hotel but we love them best from the outdoor pools. They use the natural thermal waters of nearby Bagno Vignoni and it’s so easy to spend an entire day here. The pools continue inside; in fact they stretch over 1,000 square metres. The rest of the spa facilities are as equally impressive. High end wellness programmes and an almost endless choice of massages and beauty treatments can be booked and paid for locally.
We recommend hiring a car if you’re planning to get out and explore. The hotel’s in the south of Tuscany within easy reach of the stunning Val d’Orcia and towns like Pienza and Montepulciano. There’s lots to do at the hotel too if you’d rather stay put. Use the hotel’s bikes to explore Tuscany’s hills and vineyards. Both mountain bikes and e-bikes are free to hire (subject to availability). Join a guide on one of the free daily walks or bike rides to really get to know the area. There’s also a daily programme of yoga, pilates and aquagym that you can join. If you’re travelling with kids, there’s a club for them too with supervised activities.
Tuscany has some of the best cuisine in Italy and we’re fairly sure the best cuisine in Tuscany can be had at the Adler. The food is gourmet and uses local, high quality ingredients. It’s served in the courtyard so you’ll be dining al fresco in the summer. There’s a great wine list to go with the food and many of the labels are from the hotel’s own winery. After you’ve tried a glass, book a tasting at the winery itself to see how it’s produced.
Car hire is recommended for this hotel. Hotel Adler Thermae Spa Resort is approx. 2 hours 25 mins from Pisa airport.
