It’s November. Summer ended some time ago while the Christmas holidays still seem far away. Yet, the autumn months are the best for a dream holiday in the Argentario Promontory! Even in 2020, despite the unusual period that we are experiencing (or perhaps primarily because of it) it is important to nourish our body, spirit and mind with a holiday or a weekend dedicated to relaxation and fun in complete safety. Let’s find out 7 reasons why to visit the Argentario this autumn.
Thanks to the pleasant temperature and the days that are almost always sunny, autumn in the Argentario is ideal for spending a lot of time outdoors, breathing the pristine air of the Tuscan Maremma.
2. Sports and Outdoor Activities
Thanks to the mild climate and the great outdoors, there are many activities that you can do outside in full compliance with the rules of social distancing. At the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa you can play golf on the 18-hole “PGA National Italy” course; play tennis or padel surrounded by greenery; walk or run along the jogging paths overlooking the Orbetello Lagoon; pedal with or without effort thanks to Pirelli’s Premium E-Bikes; you can also learn a new sport by booking tennis, padel and golf lessons with our expert instructors. There are also activities to be carried out outside the Resort, but always in complete safety thanks to our selected partners, such as horse riding, spin fishing and boat excursions.
The Argentario Golf Resort & Spa is located in a vast valley with a breath-taking view of the Orbetello Lagoon and the Gulf of Talamone, and spreads over 77 hectares of its own exclusive property protected by the BioAgriCert certification. With just a 5-minute drive you can reach the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve and the Orbetello Lagoon WWF Oasis, both ideal places for walking, bird watching and cycling.
Following the harvest in late summer, October and November are the months of the freshly prepared “vino novello”. Autumn is the perfect season for tasting not only wine but also extra virgin olive oil. Did you know that at the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa we have our own EVO oil, obtained from the olives harvested on our property? You can book a wine and/or oil tasting before delighting yourself with the typical flavors of the Maremma at our Club House Restaurant.
According to the “Borghi più belli d’Italia” circuit, Porto Ercole is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy: it is a five-minute drive from the Argentario Golf Resort & Spa. Other picturesque villages in the vicinity – rich in history and traditions – are Orbetello and Porto Santo Stefano. Visiting small villages and rediscovering ancient local traditions is an example of sustainable tourism that is precious for Italy and its relaunch.
