It is perhaps one of the most famous thermal centers in the world. The image of its natural pools created by the limestone that has been deposited for millennia due to the flow of therapeutic waters at the free baths of Gorello, also called Mulino waterfalls, represent in the collective imagination the unmistakable icon of well-being with rich warm waters of minerals.
If you have chosen the plane to come to Italy and then reach the Terme di Saturnia, there are two airports that we recommend. Rome and Pisa.

Terme di Saturnia Golf Club
A championship course of 6316 meters on 70 hectares, immersed in the Maremma countryside, surrounded by colors which, according to the season, range from yellow to ocher, from orange to purple red. Each hole has its own identity and – a well-known feature of all the fields with a special character – the memorization of the course is immediate: once the 18 holes are finished it is difficult to forget the ponds, the streams, the large bunkers carved in the fairways, the greens the runways are wide and wide, requiring intelligence and precision in the choice of the stick to use at the start.
In 2010 the golf course was opened for practice in Bolsena and two years later the new PAR 3 9-hole golf course was founded, affiliated to FIG, the Italian Golf Federation. It is a unique field in Italy, with a path that is the result of a precise and innovative technical choice, both from a sporting and design point of view. The field is designed to favor short play, but allows the player to still be able to take on all his shots, making it particularly fun and enjoyable. The structure is situated on the edge of an oak and chestnut forest and was built with absolute respect for the local flora and fauna. For this reason the golf course offers its guests a special and unique atmosphere, allowing them to find themselves out of time, immersed in a perfect combination of sport and nature. The strengths of the structure are the excellent location, the contact with the nature and the area surrounding the golf course for practice in Bolsena which offers the possibility of doing pleasure, cultural and food and wine excursions.
Argentario Golf Club
The Argentario Golf Club, which hosts several of the most important golf tournaments in Tuscany and Italy, boasts 18 panoramic holes totaling 6,218 meters and par 71. The course is certified “Agri Cert” bio eco-compatible and all the products used for its maintenance are totally natural. In 2019, The PGA (association of golf professionals) chose the Argentario Golf Club as the national headquarters for Italy: our course is the only Italian field with the “PGA National Golf Course Italy” license. The golf course is located in a protected natural area 5 minutes from the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve and 25 km from the Uccellina Park. The Lagoon of Orbetello, the sea and the slopes of Monte Argentario offer a panorama of extraordinary beauty and create a microclimate that allows you to play golf at any time of the year.
Inside the Golf Club there is a comfortable Resort. Here, if you like, you can find out about the best rates.
Super-Recommended !! When you’re in this area, don’t miss the kitchen of Restaurant “L’Oste Dispensa” (Map Link). Here it is shown that poor fish, if treated with respect, can give great satisfaction. The dishes convey the Chef’s love for what is created.
TOURS & ACTIVITIES
At about 80 km from the Terme di Saturnia there is one of the most beautiful and historic cities of Italy: Orvieto.
Discover more than 2,500 years of Italian history on a private, 3-hour walking tour of Orvieto. Admire views over the beautiful Paglia Valley, and then head beneath the volcanic rock to explore the city’s underground network of wine cellars and ancient Etruscan cisterns. No tour would be complete without a visit to the magnificent and famous Orvieto Cathedral, considered to be one of the most important in Europe and home to a fascinating collection of artifacts.
On this tour of historic Orvieto, you won’t just see what lies above-ground: instead, follow your guide on a subterranean exploration through Orvieto’s caves, which number in the hundreds and have hosted settlements since Etruscan times. Then, continue onwards to another traditional experience: a multi-course lunch at a local restaurant. Sample artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, wines, and pasta, and tour the owner’s private wine cellars after your meal.
Explore the art of traditional Umbrian cuisine with a hands-on cooking class in Orvieto and then enjoy your creations with dinner and a wine pairing. This class goes beyond the basics of Italian cooking allowing you to customize the course to fit your skills and interests, whether it be making pastas from scratch, refining your dough techniques, or preparing cheeses from raw milk.
Leave Orvieto behind for a day, and head into the beautiful Umbrian countryside, on this intimate tour. Begin the day with a traditional breakfast, and meet your guide: an expert truffle-hunter. Following your meal, venture into the nearby forest with your guide and a trained dog, and learn the art of truffle-hunting first-hand. Enjoy snacks as you explore, and see if you have any luck in unearthing the prized fungi.
Super-Recommended !! At 20 minutes from the center of Orvieto there is this “tasty Agricultural Farm“: La Locanda di Colle Ombroso (Map Link). Ivan’s attention to the quality of the raw materials of the territory is admirably enhanced by Eleonora’s skill and creativity in the kitchen.
The Terme di Saturnia are located in the Tuscany Region, very famous for the production of wines among the best in the world.
If you go to the wines, among the most famous, you should immediately mention the Chianti DOCG, from which the independent DOCG of the Chianti Classico has detached itself a few years ago. Created by Baron Bettino Ricasoli, Chianti was among the first wines to cross the borders following our emigrants in America; exported in the typical flasks, become so famous as to create the very image of this wine in the world. Even today it is by far the most produced wine in Italy.
Another wine known all over the world is the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, obtained from sangiovese, locally called brunello.
Tuscan places inextricably linked to the world of wine are also Montepulciano, San Gimignano and Carmignano, with the respective DOCG, Bolgheri and others, where wines of great prestige are produced.
Along the Tyrrhenian coast and in the same island of Elba are cultivated vermentino, ansonica and aleatico, the latter also elaborated in beautiful passive versions.
Going down again, towards the province of Grosseto there are other realities like that of the DOCG Morellino di Scansano, obtained from the Morellino vine, another name of the Sangiovese, of a bright ruby color and with scents of violets and blackberries.
In addition to the wines of the very important Denominations of Origin, Tuscany has come to the forefront of the world enology with some Supertuscan wines of great class, soft and elegant, obtained mainly from cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, merlot and partly syrah and pinot noir. Initially put on the market as table wines, today they are all IGT.
Finally, Tuscan wine production has a common denominator, Vin Santo and Vin Santo Occhio di pernice, produced in many different denominations and types for sugar residue; the first is above all based on Tuscan Trebbiano, the second of Sangiovese.
