Argentario Golf Resort & Spa Combines Tuscany Splendor with Modern Design
For a Tuscan holiday like no other, travelers can book a stay at the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa, nestled in Porto Ercole, on Italy’s Monte Argentario Peninsula between the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean and Tuscany’s rolling hills. Don’t expect a typical Tuscan resort, either.
As opposed to traditional terracotta and wrought iron designs, the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa offers a dragonfly-shaped structure with flaxen limestone façade. Each of the resort’s 73 guest rooms and suites—which start at about $250 per night—have been eloquently designed by interior designer Andrea Fogli, and each of three levels of rooms offers a different style.
The resort also offers guests two swimming pools. The indoor pool stays heated at 82 degrees all year long. During the summer, guests can enjoy the outdoor pool, as well as tennis courts and jogging trails.
Perhaps one of the most popular attractions of the resort, however, is its Espace Spa. The spa, located in a lightly wooded area, offers treatments such as bio-sauna with chromotherapy, massages, tanning and Kneipp treatments. Guests can even book an Espace suite if they want to have a private space to enjoy the spa experience or for a romantic occasion.
The Argentario Golf Club features 18 panoramic holes and hosts many important Italian golf tournaments. It has been awarded the Bio Agric Cert certification for its minimal ecological impact. Located in a protected natural area, the golf course is only five minutes from the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve and 15 miles from the Parco dell’Uccellina Reserve. Plus, the Orbetello Lagoon and Tuscanny hills offer a breathtaking backdrop for a relaxing game of golf. Still, the course and driving range were designed by both architect David Mezzacane and professional golfer Baldovino Dassuf to create a challenging round of golf.
