Private thermal springs and hot pools
The hotel has 3 private thermal springs, from which flow over 10,000 liters of water per minute at a temperature of 84 ° C. The bromine-iodine salty waters are the heart of the activity of the internal thermal establishment, dedicated to balneotherapy mud: water and clay are unique and inimitable therapeutic elements, whose analgesic and anti-inflammatory active ingredient is scientifically certified and protected by a European patent. Entirely natural, the bio-thermal clay used by the Hermitage comes from a small lake located not far away, in Arquà Petrarca. Its maturation in thermal water lasts at least 60 days and gives it the plasticity and chemical-physical characteristics that make it therapeutic.
The thermal waters, brought to a lower temperature, but always hot, also feed the indoor and outdoor pools of the hotel, equipped with a relaxation circuit and water games, where you can swim outdoors surrounded by warmth even when the climate becomes more stiff.
