Relaxing summer in Siena!
Summer means holidays, fun, relax: where else to travel to, then, unless Siena and the marvelous setting of the Borgo?
The borgo, stunning residence immersed in the hills surrounding Siena, is set only a 10’ walk away from the train station, as well as a 10’ drive from the motorway exits of “Siena Nord” and “Siena Ovest”. The city center lies at a short distance from our residence and can be easily reached on foot, by car or by bus.
Among the various facilities of Borgo Grondaie lies the pool: the perfect location to relax after a long day spent strolling around the tiny little streets of the medieval centre of Siena.
The Borgo’s pool, perfectly set between the heart of the meadows and the olive trees, lays close to both the apartments and the hotel rooms. It is open every day during summer and offers a peculiar feature: it’s a salt water pool.
The advantages of having a salt water pool are multiple, and mainly stand in the chlorine absence.
Do you recall the disagreeable feeling on the skin coming out of a swimming pool?
Fine. Now imagine doing the same thing without having that unpleasant sensation. How does it feel? It is nice, isn’t it?
Our pool can guarantee that! Naturally chlorine-free, it only contains 4 gr/l of salt instead of 35gr/l average of the sea, therefore assuring all benefits of salt water without providing any unpleasant sensation.
What are these benefits?
As back as in the Greek era, mankind knew that the salt is healthy for the skin: it helps to clean it, it is optimally exfoliating and detoxifies too. Its moisturizing effect helps the cellular regeneration and can help with various diseases, such as the eczema or the asthma too.
Given the presence of salt in the water, there is no need of adding chemical products as the anti-seaweed, essential to the maintenance of the water integrity in non-salt water pools.
The chlorine-added absence also prevent your skin from presenting side-effects such as the reddening, the dryness or the opacity. Tissues’ fading and both the nausea and the vile smell are avoided as well.
Thanks to an electronic device, salinity levels are kept steady and the salt is transformed by electrolysis in sodium hypochlorite, which ensure the water to be completely safe.
The thalassotherapy is available too at our pool: this therapy can be wickedly useful in case of joint pain, arthrosis, or rachitic issues. It also help to solve some skin’s problem like eczemas, psoriasis or dermatitis. The mineral salts of the water help reactivating the metabolism and the blood flow, fighting the skin aging and the cellulitis by cutting toxic substances out. Salt can be also useful to fight insomnia and stress back.
