Argentario - a design forward golf resort

2014 02 Argentario

Argentario Resort Golf & Spa is situated in Tuscany, one of Italy's most beautiful and talked about hotspots with architectural masterpieces everywhere you look in the cities of Florence, Siena and Lucca.


It is now home to the magnificent Argentario Resort Golf & Spa, which boasts a stunning, panoramic 18-hole championship course and a top-of-the-range golf academy, all overlooking Orbetello Lagoon (a mouth-watering nature reserve).

Designed by Italian golf Baldovino Dassu, golf is available all year round at Argentario, thanks to its own microclimate, meaning the course is both spectacular and technically challenging from January through to December every year.

Argentario is a 'design-forward golf retreat'


Departures, the exclusive luxury and lifestyle magazine by American Express, has created a list of “Design-forward golf retreats”. The beautiful and rustic area of southern Tuscany – known as Maremma – features in the list along with Gleneagles, Sagres in the Algarve, Phuket, Okinawa and other fancy destinations around the globe.

The design spirit in a rustic and natural region such as the Maremma is embodied by the Argentario Resort Golf & Spa, a luxury resort with design suites, eco-friendly 18-hole golf course, spa with health club and gourmet restaurant.

“The Argentario Resort Golf & Spa in Tuscany eschewed Tuscan terracotta and wrought iron for an airy dragonfly-shape main building that pulls guests into a large, curving lobby with floor-to-ceiling windows that gaze out onto surrounding cork and olive trees. Slate floors, cream-colored shag seating and matte-black structural elements provide a rich contrast. Rooms feature tabarca and serena stones, earthy Tuscan woods and stainless-steel fixtures; most are endowed with large terraces that overlook the Espace Wellness Center and the property’s Orbetello Lagoon. There is a modern pro shop at Argentario, too, and the 18-hole bio-agri-certified course—designed by David Mazzacane in collaboration with Italian golfer Baldovino Dassù—is veined with running trails and remains one of Italy’s most scenic.” Departures, 2014
