  • Villa Dell'Emissario

    Villa dell'Emissario is a beautiful seventeenth-century villa, completely restored in recent years and furnished with great taste and refinement by the two owners, frequent travelers and lovers of art history. The villa is set in an extraordinarily panoramic place, not far from the medieval village of Celle sul Rigo and 6 km from San Casciano dei Bagni, a very popular wellness centre.

    From Rome they came to the lands of Casciano because Triario, wife of the Emperor Vitellius, had recommended the healthy properties of thermal waters to her friends. Coming along the Via Cassia, Capitoline patricians in the company of their lovers or their families, either by horse-drawn carriage or in the saddle, came to this place in the shadow of Mount Cetona, in the rugged lands taken from the Etruscans.

    In medieval times, the therapeutic reputation of the place did not fade. The town is known by the name of Bagno, or “Balneo”. And the baths of San Cassiano, later S. Casciano, were documented from 1081 when, among the assets of the powerful Abbey of St. Salvatore on Monte Amiata, the figure of “Curtis de Balneo” is mentioned.
    In the municipality, 43 hot springs gush out a total capacity of 5,400,000 litres per day, placing S. Casciano immediately behind the European celebrities of Aix-les-Bains and Karlsbad. Every ailment finds a cure here.

    But it is not only for the wellbeing of the body that people come to this town, hidden behind the folds of the Val d’Orcia, behind the rupestrian scales of Radicofani and not far but protected from highways and railways. People come to learn about a wild Tuscany, made up of few roads and those that there are, are nearly all white, impenetrable woods and bush, mysterious places of water, showerheads, gullies, clay.
