Ciclofficine in Bagno Vignoni:
an exclusive location
Ciclofficine in Bagno Vignoni was a choice from the heart rather than a strategic one, because Bagno Vignoni is one of “soul places” which becomes an obligatory destination in Val d’Orcia, but first of all it captures with a unique and unforgettable charm.
For us locals and certainly for those who visit the Val d’Orcia, Bagno Vignoni remains as a village that relaxes mind and body, thanks to welcoming architecture and buildings have wanted to give refreshment with copious thermal waters that sprinkle the center. The large Romanesque pool is a precious source of sulphurous water also known in antiquity, where there were numerous pools and relaxation areas for beneficial baths.

This is the Parco dei Mulini, which can be visited thanks to a path that winds through an island of Mediterranean scrub, dominated by mastic bushes and plants characteristic of salty places.
The Bagno Vignoni mills have an important peculiarity: they also worked in summer, when the other mills in the area were stopped due to dry rivers, because they were fed by a thermal spring that gushed out with a constant flow, but forced to work in environments hot and humid, since the water temperature at the source is about 50 ° C. The visit is highly recommended, just a few minutes walk from our Ciclofficine shop in Bagno Vignoni. And to find out more… we refer you to the website www.valdorciasenese.com
