trip overview

adler resort in Tuscany
built in a country house style, the resort boasts 1000 square meters of thermal and sports swimming pools, a sauna, and a steam bath area delimited by the walls of an old travertine quarry. Waters are piped and chilled, and maintain their beneficial and healing properties intact: they are used for packs, hydro massages, and mud therapy. The range of aesthetic treatments is wide – from classic beauty treatments to fitness programs with different intensities; from holistic techniques for the well-being of body and mind to thermal treatments. Ayurveda is the pride of the spa: Besides custom massages, you can also be examined by professional Indian doctors who, after a long session, give advice on the best health tips and diet to reach a psycho-physical well-being. The cookery is in tune with the general atmosphere. Thanks to a mix of original recipes from the Tuscan tradition and well-balanced solutions, the food at Adler is divine, healthy, and tasty at the same time.
