The redevelopment project in the San Carlo mining concession area was headed up by Eugenio Alphandery, president of the San Carlo spa, formerly president of the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella.
The opening of the new bottling plant and the entire complex adjacent to the natural spa marked the start of a new period for the place.
San Carlo mineral water is bottled exclusively in glass containers, because only glass guarantees that the extraordinary chemical, physical, microbiological and organoleptic properties of our water will be retained.
A sizeable investment allowed us to integrate spa treatments with the art and culture which characterise this unique location. Spa treatments inside the park: our goal is to offer a service which reaches a perfect balance between care and nutrition. As of next spring, in addition to spa treatments, guests can also enjoy purifying treatments through personalised preventative diagnosis protocols through which they will learn to purify themselves. Inside the thermal park, considerable space is dedicated to the cultivation of medicinal herbs such as thyme, lavender, lemon balm... and the ancient costmary, part of the tradition of the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, grown by the monks since 1600 and used for the production of the water of Santa Maria Novella, known as a hysteria treatment.
A fully-restored amphitheatre hosts cultural events related to prose, music and painting.
The ability to open up towards an increasing number of users will be encouraged by the presence of the conference centre, home to the San Carlo Springs’ scientific centre for study of purification, which constantly hosts meetings and conferences linked to the world of medicine, particularly focusing its attention on the processes of pollution and ageing of the body and mind which often lead to chronic and degenerative diseases.
A cutting-edge spa to get your body back into shape and give it fresh energy, a modern thermal centre to purify and detoxify the cells and tissue, thanks to the characteristics of the San Carlo spring waters.
Pleasant and non-invasive methods that will be used in the centre in a synergistic combination of Eastern and Western experiences.
Gentle and effective personalised treatments created in conjunction with the historic Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella in Florence.
