“Nicest People found in Italia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We found this hotel on the net and although it looked nice in the site - it was much better when we arrived. WHAT MAKES THIS PLACE SPECIAL -- ARE THE OWNERS. the owners of this hotel are the MOST ACCOMODATING, Sweetest, kindest and wonderful owners I have ever encountered. I would stay with them if they had a barn. Every detail in each room was picked with care and thought. And its location to the cascade is perfect. Unlike other bathrooms and showers in Italian hotels, you can actually turn around and bend over in the shower. Although there is No restaurant on property (except for breakfast) there are tante places within a short distance. We really like La Solina just down the road. A Very good experience.

Room Tip: Every room is a good room.

This hotel was in the perfect spot. It was everything I had ever pictured when thinking of Tuscany. The property is very clean. The owners do not speak English, but they are extremely friendly, welcoming, & accomodating to the best of their ability. They give you a tour upon arrival. The rooms are very cute, quanit, and rustic. They have home made jellies waiting for you as a gift, and also send you off with one. The cascades were breathtaking! The hotel even has a thermal pool on the property. It took less than 5 minutes to walk through the wooded trail to the waterfalls. The river is very shallow and easy to cross to jump in the falls. They were very warm and just lovely at sunset. The owners give excellent advice for restaurants. We went to Due CIPPI, which was pricey, but every bit worth it. They were very friendly, the food was excellent and of the region. We even saw a fox that the owner has been feeding for 2 years! For something more family friendly, I can recommend the pizza place at the end of the road before you turn left to go to the town of Saturnia. If you feel adventurous, reserve a boat trip with Paolo Il Pescatore (Paolo the fisherman) in Talamone (about an hour drive). It's worth it! I have nothing bad to say of this place.

We had a great stay at La fonte del Cerro. The hotel is located very close to the natural waterfalls of Saturnia (a short walk or a 2 minutes car ride away), as well as the thermal establishment of the Hotel Terme di Saturnia. The room was spacious, personable and clean. The bathroom was large and functional and renovated quite recently. The breakfast was nice, with bruschetta, local salame, homemade cake, fruit and plenty of jams to go with the local cheese and ricotta. The lady serving the breakfast was extremely nice, and brought us repeatedly good espresso and cappuccino. Even if we arrived late at night, the owners were waiting for us to check us in, and were very helpful. The list of recommended restaurants they provide was extremely useful, and you should follow it.

Make sure to have some cash to pay to the owners the tassa di soggiorno when you check out and the tickets for the thermal swimming pool at a discounted price.

March is low season, and we could enjoy the hotel and the surroundings without the crowds. Both the cascatelle and the swimming pools are very relaxing. The surrounding of Saturnia are also terrific; the town of Pitigliano is particularly impressive and surely deserves a visit. The area of the Amiata mountain, North of Saturnia, is also very interesting to explore. A car is a must. Wine and regional cuisine are excellent.

This is the perfect location for those who wish to go at the wonderful "cascatelle hot spring". Just a walking distance, a trail through the fields brings you from you room to the cascatelle in five minutes! The Hotel is made of three detached buildings on a wonderful spot with a magnificent view of the countryside and the village of Saturnia. Breakfast is served in a lovely veranda with stunning view, all home made and local products. Rooms are spacious and well furnished, we got a junior sweet, in winter the heating is acceptable, slightly noisy because of the fans, the floor was very cold! The bathroom rather small but nicely done. The sleeping quality is average, in winter I would have preferred a feather duvet. The village of Saturnia is at seen and can be reached on foot in less then 60 minutes (3 Km). The village is small but offer a magnificent choice of local restaurants. We have been at the "Due cippi" and found it superb. Indeed a place to mark on your GPS just in case you pass by in future.

Room Tip: We liked the room at the ground floor, easy access to the garden and restaurant

Simple, short and great staying at Fonte del Cerro. There is a track in the back of the property, where you can find the delicious and warming waterfalls. Good food and comfortable rooms besides the friendship of Maurizio and Graziela complete the good surprise. Wish I could stay a little more. Once in Italy: see the Pope and visit this place.

In my worst dreams I could not imagine that I will get to the place like this.They advertised that the location is within walk in distance to the Cascatelle.
The territory like a jail . Breakfast is awful only sweets and an egg cutter on 16 pieces!!!!!!!!!!!They literally looking in your mouth when you are eating!!!!! If you want to get to Cascatelle you have to cross the little stinky river with a sleepers and be careful because the bottom of the river is extremely slippery & full of rocks and crap.The other way to get there is by car but that it is almost impossible to get parking.The place is packed with people .I was told by locals that the water in this waterfall full of pee and not effective because it is start at Terme de Saturnia Spa and after 6 hours people in the SPA swimming and using this water it drains into than Cascatelle. Also people bring there dogs and the pee in there.Food is everywhere on the ground.Filthy hell!!!!!!!!!
We spent 2 days and informed the owner that we will be moving to Terme de Saturnia SPA.He said "no problem".
But the nightmare starts when we wanted to leave the hotel .The owner locked the door in his office and told us that if we would not pay him for the full week we will get arrested .Never again in my life.PLEASE BEWARE!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Never go there!!!!!!!!

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The owners were very friendly and they offer an amazing Tuscan breakfast with many self-made products. The hotel is within walking distance from the famous spring, but to go out for dinner you need a car. The whole area around Saturnia offeres many possibilities for very nice trips. All in all a very nice and quiet place to stay for a couple of days and take a rest.
