In the middle of the Tuscan nowhere, Terme di Saturnia is a place to detach utterly from the strains of ordinary life - both literally and metaphorically. A destination since the Roman era, this ancient wellspring now offers a five-star set-up. Despite their sulphurous stink the thermal pools are an infinitely soothing place to spend time, their therapeutic properties enhanced by the resort's extensive menu of spa treatments. Those inclined to be active will find the geo-certified golf course, free bikes and optional exercise sessions a major draw, while guests determined to relax can make use of two on-site restaurants and a delightful bar (bathrobes optional). In keeping with its 100-year pedigree, the look here is classically luxurious - and service, too, is reassuringly old-fashioned.

Stylish young professionals weekending from Rome make up the lion's share of the guests, but anyone in need of relaxation will feel at home - including families. The hotel is designed with the thermal pool at its heart, their shimmering waters endlessly glimpsed through large windows.

Food & Drink

Restaurant 1919's sommelier is worthy of special mention for his friendly and insightful wine advice, which enhances every meal. The antipasti at Stellata, from stuffed courgette flowers to a plate of cured meats and cheeses, are uncommonly good.

1919: fine dining with local, seasonal Italian specialities. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Trattoria La Stellata: traditional rustic Tuscan fayre. Open for lunch and dinner (except Tuesdays).
