My Jade, 10 years old, has very clear ideas and, when you can, gladly spend a weekend at the spa with mom and dad here is their experience in Montegrotto in term of a week vacation.
You know that gift we asked our daughter for her birthday in the last 2 years? A weekend at the spa !!! Yeah, it’s a good living as a mother, and so his gift we enjoy ourselves!
We are fortunate that, living in the province of Bologna, we can arrive in just over one hour in the spa area of the Colli Hills, just before Padua. The two places where you’ll find most of the hotels are equipped for spa treatments Montegrotto and Abano Terme, which usually also have large areas of well-being and beautiful pools with hot thermal water.
Some of these also have the option of entry daily … so if you want to make a trip in one day, if only for a few hours of relaxation for body and mind, is definitely worth!
Abano Terme with children: the spa
Our favorite place to stay pampering at the spa is Montegrotto. Many hotels are located in the middle of the concrete, or between other hotels or buildings, but the hotel Terme Preistoriche, with its prehistoric pools, is in a green area next to a small hill and is surrounded by a beautiful park.
The inside of the pool, which is connected to the outside via a passage, not very big but has a beautiful wooden roof and a fantastic huge fireplace, where you can warm up when it leaves the water in winter.
There are several stations with tub and waterfall for cervical. On warm sunny days, around the outdoor pool there are umbrellas and sunbeds to take the sun also. For lunch or a snack there is the bar inside or the outside tables under a gazebo or a beautiful restaurant on the pool for the winter.
The moment that I like the most is when it gets dark and light the torches around the pool, especially if it’s cold outside: stay in this warm water, with steam rising in the dark and the stars above us … … really beautiful!
The evenings are also lit the many jets of whirlpool present in the middle of the pool, which are turned off during the day, then the stations to enjoy the bubbles become really a lot!
If you can not go all day, it is worth even only go in the evening: from 19 the ticket price is reduced while the pools are open until 24!
For those staying at the hotel it is also a swimming pool reserved for guests, new and less crowded than the others, whose waters become multicolored evening.
We never tried dinner, but breakfast in the morning is galactic, salty and sweet enough and numerous varieties of fresh fruit and berries !!
And we moms? At least 2 times a year we do not miss a refreshing day at the spa of Montegrotto or Abano, for a cut-based chat, fun and relaxation!
