Spa village of historic stone buildings in the Appennini Mountains
Homey, charming rooms with historical touches such as wood-beam ceilings
Property includes a thermal swimming pool, spa and sauna, and water park
Hotel guests receive discounts to use the spa and water park
Some rooms are so far from the swimming facilities a car might be needed to get to them
Far from Bologna and Florence (but the rural setting is a pro for many)
Spa facilities and food not included in the price of the room
Villaggio della Salute Più is an eclectic mix; it's a mid-range hotel that offers homey rooms in renovated stone houses built 800 years ago, but it also offers camping. Throw in a water park and thermal spa with restaurants, and that pretty much sums up the place. Villaggio della Salute Più caters mostly to Italian guests, as the water park is a popular day trip from Bologna. Note that none of the facilities are included in the price of a room. It's a good choice for guests who relish a rural location and are interested in using the spa and water park, but it's less than ideal for those who want to explore Bologna or Florence.
Italian countryside meets water park and thermal spa
Villaggio della Salute Piùt is formed mainly by a series of stone buildings housing guest rooms -- some of them are near the spa and water park while others require a drive. The main building consists of the spa with treatment rooms, and two pools: one filled with geothermal heated water and the other with saltwater. A partial glass wall and ceiling add natural sunlight to the space. The thermal spa is more like a medical center than a wellness center: There's even an on-site doctor, and a quick physical is required before entering the spa. The water park and swimming pools are open to outside visitors, so expect big crowds in the summer. The surrounding countryside is breathtaking, with green mountains and a large lake.
In the Appennini Mountains about 29 miles from Bologna
The hotel is located in the beautiful Appennini Mountains, half an hour's drive from the city of Bologna or 90 minutes via mountain roads to Florence. The Villaggio della Salute Più is the only attraction in the area. Public transportation is not reliable or convenient.
Homey but basic rooms in renovated 800-year-old stone buildings
Though most visitors drive from Bologna for a day trip to Villaggio della Salute Più, guest rooms are available for those who want to spend the night. They're housed in an assortment of historic buildings (mostly stone), some which were originally constructed in the 13th century. They were renovated in the 1990s to include modern bathrooms and televisions, and they're a bit basic, but homey; some have charming details such as terra-cotta tile floors, wrought-iron headboards, and wood-beam ceilings. The Club House rooms may include kitchen facilities and double bedrooms -- making them a good choice for families -- but they're sparsely furnished without any bells or whistles. Visitors can also camp in tents or campers.
Restaurant, spa, and thermal swimming pool -- plus a water park
The water features are really the main draw at Villaggio della Salute Più. The water park is open seasonally and includes water slides, waterfalls, and rock formations along with an expansive swimming pool. The indoor thermal pools and spa are open all year. Guests should note than an on-site physical from a doctor is required before using the spa facilities. There's a restaurant with budget-friendly options, but bring your own lock for the locker room or prepare to purchase one from the front desk.
