Located in a lush valley overlooking Orbetello Lagoon and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Argentario Resort features a contemporary style that is quite unique in rustic Tuscany, showcasing the region’s more “progressive” side.
Surrounded by Mediterranean beaches and charming fishing villages on a peninsula, the Argentario Resort Golf & Spa is 2 hours or less away from Rome, Florence and Siena. Guests can take daytrips to these famous spots, to then escape from mass tourism and retreat to the private, green surroundings of the luxury design property.
The Argentario Resort includes 76 design rooms, including 7 uniquely appointed suites and an independent, 3-bedroom villa that innovates the idea of Tuscan country house with an eclectic touch. The rooms 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.
The dragonfly-shaped resort has a flaxen limestone façade, while the reception area has enormous glass windows through which the intense colors of the sky and of the Mediterranean vegetation can be enjoyed. The natural light contrasts with the tabarca-stone pavements and the opaque black structural elements.
The Argentario Resort includes a 77-hectare, 18-hole golf course that has been awarded the ‘BioAgriCert’ environmental certification for its sustainable maintenance practices. The picturesque course unfolds around olive groves, the Mediterranean scrub, small lakes and rolling hills overlooking Orbetello Lagoon.
The Espace Wellness Center is the largest, most equipped and modern spa of the area, including indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, sauna and Turkish bath, among other services. A stylish world suspended between retro and modern, with a wide range of massages and treatments that can satisfy all demands and needs by guests. For a totally personalized experience, guests can book their private spa within the wellness center: the Espace Suite is available for romantic occasions or for unique spa parties with friends.
Last but not least, gourmands can delight themselves in the Dama Dama Restaurant, where executive chef Emiliano Lombardelli proposes Mediterranean and Tuscan cuisine in a revisited gourmet version. The “zero km” cuisine uses fresh produce from its own organic vegetable garden and from carefully selected small farms in the Maremma Tuscany. The restaurant is a contemporary vision of an elegant mountain retreat.
Don’t miss a refreshing ‘aperitivo’ with some Tuscan wine or Italian prosecco while enjoying the sunset from the panoramic terrace at the Aper Bar, the resort’s funky lounge bar with playful tables shaped like wild boars.
