Agliano Terme: le fonti miracolose a due passi da Villa Fontana

THE SPRINGS OF AGLIANO TERME

The ‘miraculous’ water of Agliano Terme, was once so well known that, in the early twentieth century, it was sold in elegant bottles from pharmacies in Genoa and Turin.

It was discovered by Agliano farmers at the end of the eighteenth century. Considered capable of curing any ailment, it drew many tourists to Agliano to experience, not only the water, but the grape-based detoxifying treatments available in the area.

Even today the springs are still regarded as ‘miraculous’, bringing you a deep sense of well-being and the holding the power to soothe and restore. The water is used for inhalation treatments in a nearby modern spa. For more information visit the site Terme di Agliano

GRAPE THERAPY

Each grape and its bunch holds treasure within it

The extraordinary antioxidant action and restoration abilities are so potent that the Ancient Romans, centuries ago, used them for grape therapy.

The hills, seemingly raked with their rows of vines, the flavour and colours of the grapes, each different from each other, are a font of natural well-being. Even today, at the Spa of Villa Fontana, this treatment has been re-invented to bring you deep relaxation and draw out your wellness.

Alba, Asti and surroundings

Certainly of pre-Roman origins, perhaps Celtic, Alba has been a busy centre of commerce since the late Roman era.

In medieval times one would have been able to watch the construction of Alba’s still-famous bells and castles. Today, Alba is still known as the ‘city of a hundred towers’, as well as being famous, of course, for the majestic truffle. Villa Fontana is 24Km from this enchanting city, and is only 15Km from the beautiful city of Asti, known throughout the world for the annual Palio and related food and wine events.
From our Relais it is only around an hours’ drive to the main cities of northern Italy: Milan, Turin, and Genoa, or you could visit the Ligurian coast – perfect for a day-trip.
