Casa Moricciani has a refreshing, fountain-fed pool to cool-off in after sunbathing in the garden. In Italy we call such a pool a "vasca refrigerante"—it is a lovely shallow plunge pool with cool water, where inside there are seats for as many as 8 people. The stones that line the top perimeter are from an ancient Roman road, and the views from the pool are outstanding. On a hot summer's day it is extremely relaxing and private.

For those who enjoy bathing in the local thermal pools, there are many opportunities in the nearby area. One beautiful cool water, natural area is La Gora near Bagno Vignoni.

Bagno Vignoni also has beautiful commercial spas, with pools of natural thermal waters, to enjoy for a reasonable fee.

Enjoy the natural thermal waters of Bagni San Filippo—and don’t miss Fosso Bianco!

Also very near to Castelmuzio is the San Giovanni Terme Rapolano.

A regular (not thermal) swimming pool is only 15 minutes away in the town of San Quirico d’Orcia—a pool that is a delight for kids and adults:
