Qc Terme San Pellegrino: a relaxing getaway
Qc Terme are a sure hit. If you have had the chance to try Qc Terme in the centre of Milan (read my article about it here) you must agree with me. If your stress levels are at a point where you need to escape the city for a while, I suggest you try the San Pellegrino location of the Qc Terme, in the province of Bergamo. One hour drive from Milan and easy to reach with the A4 motorway, this place is a promise of a good dose of wellness and relax!
WHAT IS THERE. To be honest it would be easier to say what is not there. There are more than 6k sq meters of space dedicated to your well-being, in a location that was a casino a long time ago. There are two buildings and more than thirty thermal activities: panoramic pools, sensorial pools, waterfalls, Kneipp course, Vichy showers, steam baths and solarium gardens. Is it tempting enough?
FROM THE OUTSIDE. At the entrance you will be welcomed by a garden with lemon and other citrus trees. The building is majestic and it is divided in two impressive wings. And the entrance hall, oh my, it looks like a castle. Parking close by is easy, your only worry will be about which treatment to start with and whether you should book an extra as a massage (need I say more?..).
FROM THE INSIDE. Be ready to unplug your brain between renovated affrescos, colonnades and liberty ceilings perfectly coexist with more modern architecture. The part I absolutely love is the last one with its saunas, waterfalls, relax rooms for taking a nap and the outdoor pool, a stretch of water among the mountains where I have tasted the most relaxing cocktail ever.
THE COST. The price list is available on their website and prices are alligned to those in the Milan location. Book the light buffet or the aperitivo too – it is the moment I like the most, during which you can enjoy a glass of wine with some local treats while you are still in your bathrobe. Remember to bring your swimsuit: everything else is provided, relax included!
