Argentario Golf Resort & Spa (www.argentarioresort.com), the design hotel in coastal Tuscany, is offering a getaway this summer for golfers who also love the beach with the creation of the ‘Tuscan Summer Dream’ package. The golf break includes 18 holes of golf over the par 71, 6,218 metre Argentario golf course, two days of beach service (including a parasol, sun beds and towels) at one of the most exclusive beach clubs on the Maremma coast and a welcome dinner at the resort’s acclaimed Dama Dama Restaurant. In addition guests can enjoy a daily buffet breakfast at the resort, use of the wellness centre and outdoor pools and, for those families with children, the Mini Club is available in July and August whilst for partners who do not golf, there is a 25-minute massage in the hotel spa as an alternative. Rates for the three-night package in a double Tuscany Junior Suite start from Euros 652.50 (£570) per person. The Argentario course, adjacent to this luxurious resort in the heart of the Maremma, is set in the protected natural terrain of the Argentario promontory with stunning panoramas over the Orbetello Lagoon, the Tyrrhenian Sea and the surrounding rugged hillside. The front nine is laid out amongst Mediterranean vegetation and cork oak trees whilst the second nine weaves itself in and out of ancient olive groves and a number of natural water hazards. Established 12 years ago, the course was constructed in line with the eco-conscious philosophy that has been applied to the construction of the whole resort using only natural products. Over 300,000 new plants were introduced on to what was abandoned and arid land and the new habitat has seen the return of wildlife such as fallow deer, hares and a variety of birds in the area. As a result, the golf course is the proud recipient of the BioAgricert environmental certification for its bio eco-compatibility, sustainability and water management. After golf, guests can drive or take the hotel shuttle to the one of the Silver Coast’s most stunning sandy beaches, relax under a parasol and swim in the crystal-clear waters that the Silver Coast, a popular destination for beach lovers, is well known for. Summer guests at Argentario Golf Resort & Spa also enjoy a special discount of 20% off sailing courses that take place at the prestigious Federal Sailing School of Yacht Club Santo Stefano (YCSS). In 2018 the sailing courses, which take place from early June until September 14th, are held in the morning for beginners and young children and in the afternoon for the most experienced students and for adults. The course comprises 15 hours per week, with three hours daily from Monday to Friday from 9.30 to 12.30 or from 14.30 to 17.30. Alternatively sea lovers can rent the ‘Far Wind’ luxury sailboat through Argentario Golf Resort & Spa from June until July 22. The boat departs from the prestigious Marina of Cala Galera in Porto Ercole and can host from six to 10 passengers.
