Hippy Gourmet in Fonteverde Spa - top healing place on the planet!

Tucked into the romantic rolling hills of Tuscany, Italy, near the medieval castle village of San Casciano dei Bagni is one of the planets most healing places.

Fonteverde Spa Resort is a transformational spot that is literally powered by the earth's magma. This volcanic area of Tuscany is known for its healing thermal waters and mineral baths, with the location of Fonteverde being the
exclusive resort built in the 17th century by the Grand Duke Ferdinando I de' Medici.


This site, amid the precious hot springs and gentle flowing landscape, have been therapeutically utilized for thousands of years - and the power to heal, cleanse and relax are as present as ever!

From Episode 100 of Organic Living TV with the Hippy Gourmet we are so blessed to have the opportunity to visit Fonteverde to film their spa and elaborate pools, and to also spend time in their organic kitchens learning how they tailor-fit each meal to client's specific needs!

This is a resort that after you check-in, you meet with a doctor who not only recommends the best spa treatments, but also telephones the head chef and prescribes the most appropriate menu options, based on the check-up and optimal health.

Fonteverde does something very special to affect people's moods and dispositions into the positive. The glistening waters loaded with soul grounding minerals, coupled with the Tuscan slow-food and organic gourmet diet, makes the body and mind come together in a balanced way - and something you definitely take with you when you leave.

Grazie Mille! Fonteverde and to Luca Centoni at Phoenix Media
