Argentario Golf Resort & Spa – Tuscany, Italy

Located next to Porto Ercole, Argentario Golf Resort & Spa, revolves around the pursuit of wellness and the respect for the environment.

This luxury resort boasts an incredible view over the golf course, Monte Argentario’s landscape and Orbetello Lagoon, surrounded by cork-oak woods and centuries-old olive trees in Tuscany’s Maremma, home to hares, deer, squirrels, wild boars and a variety of bird species.

Its panoramic location and elegance creates the ideal and relaxed setting for both fairytale weddings and business meetings or conferences.

ACCOMMODATION

Each design accommodation features a terrace and the latest technologies, and is the result of a meticulous research on materials and fittings.

All the rooms and suites express their individual personality through a sophisticated and comfortable design, ranging from the minimalist look in a contemporary art-gallery style to the most glamorous and metropolitan spirit with chrome plating and stone tubs.

DINING 

“Dama Dama” is the scientific name for the fallow deer, a beautiful species that can still be found roaming freely in the woods that surround the Argentario Resort. Dama Dama Restaurant is today a contemporary vision of an elegant mountain retreat, where Chef Riccardo Cappelli proposes a cuisine based on the flavours and the colours of the local territory.

Dishes are prepared using genuine products that come from small, carefully selected local farms and, in some periods of the year, these ingredients come directly from our vegetable garden and orchard.

In addition to the classic Mediterranean cuisine, the restaurant also proposes the innovative cuisine of the Wellbeing Method conceived by biologist and nutritionist Luca Naitana. It promotes a new concept of wellness centred on reaching a balanced and healthy physical and mental state. 

Mediterranean-type diet of fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables, extra virgin olive oil, white meat and fresh fish.

The Tasting Menu is recommended for those wishing to undertake a voyage among the flavours, the aromas and the colours of the most particular land and sea dishes.

The wine cellar offers mainly wines from the Maremma Tuscany.

The lounge bar, located at the base of a grand, white spiral staircase, features the amusing Pig Tables by Marcel Wanders and an unlikely science laboratory on the counter.

Club House Restaurant

Revitalising drinks and healthy dishes that are both simple yet creative, await you in the Club House, which recalls the tradition of historic Anglo-Saxon golf clubs with contemporary details. 

The restaurant and bar of the Club House overlook the large terrace where you can admire the beautiful landscape: the golf course, the Mediterranean vegetation, Orbetello Lagoon and the Gulf of Talamone.

DESIGN IDENTITY

An eco-conscious philosophy and a meticulous research of materials and modern décor: these are the ideas behind a new vision of the rustic and traditional Maremma Tuscany.

At the Argentario Resort, the main symbol of this identity is the majestic entrance hall, where the intense colours of the sky and of the Mediterranean vegetation stand out through enormous glass windows and contrast with the tabarca-stone pavements, the arched counters and the opaque black structural elements.

The dragonfly-shaped property features a limestone façade, while in the inside, interior designer Andrea Fogli has created a contemporary style with retro and extravagant touches.

Among many special design pieces you’ll notice: the social table by Vincent Van Duysen and the Cappellini chairs by Marcel Wanders at the Dama Dama Restaurant; the Pig Tables by Marcel Wanders for Moooi and the chandeliers by Ron Gilads; the writing desk by Bertjan Pot and the ‘furry’ chairs by Patricia Urquiola in the hall.

In any common or private space within the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa, you will be able to appreciate the contemporary and innovative project that has brought something new and alternative in the rustic Maremma Tuscany, both from an architectonic and an ecological point of view.

GOLF

The Argentario Golf Club, which hosts various of the most important golf tournaments in Tuscany and Italy, features 18 panoramic holes for a total of 6,218 metres and par 71.

The course has been awarded the “Agri Cert” certification for its bio eco-compatibility, and all products used for its maintenance are completely natural.

The golf course is located in a protected natural area, only 5 minutes from the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve and 25 km from the Parco dell’Uccellina Reserve. The Orbetello Lagoon, the sea and the hillside offer a beautiful panorama and create a microclimate that allows golf to be played at any time of the year.

WELLNESS & SPA

The Espace Wellness Center seems suspended between retro and modern, where large windows overlook the green landscape, and the chromo-therapy lights and the pool water reflection create a relaxing atmosphere for the guests’ physical and mental wellbeing.

The 2.700 m² spa includes a fitness centre with Technogym equipment, bio-sauna with chromotherapy, Kneipp circuit, heated indoor swimming pool with saline water, massage cabins and tanning showers, among many other services. Outdoors, Espace offers 2 padel courts, 2 tennis courts, 2 jogging trails and one small football pitch.

At the MediSPA you can discover and experience the Wellbeing Method, a new concept of wellness centred on reaching a balanced and healthy physical and mental state. It involves food re-education and exclusive treatments designed for you to achieve your desired weight, shape and physical-mental wellness, and to maintain these throughout time.

Swimming Pools

The swimming pool complex features a unique and charming design, and it overlooks the 18th hole on the golf course and the neighbouring Argentario Polo Club. It offers a heated indoor pool, an outdoor pool, tubs with cervical cascades, thalassotherapy, Kneipp pools and hot tubs.

During summer, the Argentario Resort offers a terrace with 2 swimming pools where guests can refresh themselves under the Tuscan sun.

With water heated at 28 C°, the indoor pool at the Espace wellness center extends outdoors and is open all year long. Its saline water helps the skin become more toned and elastic thanks to its unique healthy properties. A swim in a saline pool favours the draining of liquids, acts against bacteria and inflammations, and is also a great solution for those who wish to slim down, as it helps the blocked or slow metabolism.

Humid Zone & Relaxation Area

A peaceful oasis where you can taste herbal teas while lying comfortably next to a tub. Here you can also take care of your body while soaking in a rejuvenating and invigorating journey through saunas, Turkish baths, Thalassotherapy, Kneipp circuit, hot tub and massaging waterfalls.

Fitness: Espace Gym

Outdoor activities can be enjoyed in a pristine environment framed by a breathtaking landscape.

The resort offers 2 padel courts, 2 tennis courts, a 5-a-side football pitch and jogging paths, allowing guests to experience the Mediterranean nature in a unique way.

MAREMMA, TUSCANY

The Maremma is a striking land that stretches between the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea and Tuscany’s rolling hills. Among its most exclusive locations is the Silver Coast (Argentario), famous for its crystal-clear waters and wild nature.

Thanks to a mild climate, the Maremma and the Argentario offer a wide choice of activities that can be enjoyed not only during the summer, but throughout the year

TUSCANY, ITALY

With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art and a superb cucina contadina (farmer’s kitchen), the Tuscan experience is perfectly in symbiosis with the land.

Living History

Ever since the Etruscans dropped by to party and stayed, Tuscany has seduced. The Romans stocked their grain silos here, Christians walked stages of a medieval pilgrimage route, and Napoleon plundered art (and suffered terribly in exile in a beautiful neoclassical villa with fig trees and sea view on the paradisiacal island of Elba). Florence’s historic churches and monuments were a key stop for British aristocrats on the Grand Tour in the 19th century – and remain so. And at sundown when the River Arno turns pink, whether you like things old-fashioned and simple or boutique chic, know that this handsome city will oblige.

An Artistic Powerhouse

Then there’s the art. And, oh, what art! The Etruscans indulged their fondness for a classy send-off with exquisite funerary objects, and the Romans, always partial to puffing up their own importance, left their usual legacy of monumental sculptures. But it was during the medieval and Renaissance periods that Tuscany really struck gold, with painters, sculptors and architects creating world-class masterpieces. Squirrelled away and safeguarded today in churches, museums and galleries all over the region, art in Tuscany is truly unmatched. Edgy street art in Florence and countryside sculpture parks bring the art scene right up to the 21st century.

Sensational Slow Food

No land is more caught up with the fruits of its fertile earth than Tuscany, a gourmet destination whose residents spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about, discussing and consuming food and wine. Local, seasonal and sustainable is the Holy Trinity and Tuscans share enormous pride in the quality of their produce. Tuscan travel is grassroots: to wineries to taste blockbuster wines like Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano; to a family-run pastificio tradizionale where artisan pasta is cut by hand; and road trips in quest of the best bistecca alla fiorentina (chargrilled T-bone steak). Buon appetito!

Perfect Landscapes

Tuscany has a timeless familiarity with its iconic Florentine cathedral dome, gently rolling hills dipped in soft morning mist and sculptural cypress alleys. But then, this regione in central Italy is postcard material. Golden wheat fields, silver olive groves and pea-green vineyards marching in sharp terraced rows on hillsides form a graceful prelude to soul-soaring medieval hilltop villages, mountain ranges and fecund forests in the north, and a garland of bijou islands beaded along the coastal south. Get out, explore, hike and ding your bicycle bell, as this rousing landscape demands.
