Tuscany's Argentario Golf Resort & Spa is situated in the Maremma region on a former island off the coast. These days, it's connected to the mainland by a trio of marrow sandbars. The hotel itself is all about respect for the environment and wellbeing. Located next to Porto Ercole and with views over the verdant fairways of Orbetello Lagoon and Monte Argentario, the contemporary hideaway was created using local stone, wood and glass to create something stylish and individual. The eco-conscious, dragonfly-shaped building has a limestone exterior, and inside there's a blend of modern and retro decor.
Honeymooners, tennis players, sports enthusiasts, foodies, fitness fanatics or travellers just looking for a relaxing holiday will all be drawn here.
Good to know: the property is wheelchair accessible, child-friendly, and pets are allowed in some Superior and Gallery rooms upon request.
The concept was to recreate a place where people could feel at home. The bedrooms are like a bedroom in a modern house. We said to the designer, make something modern but not like a hotel – more like a villa, that has the details and comfort of a private house. It’s a bit untraditional, as we didn’t follow the usual hotel standards- it is very authentic.

Dama Dama prides itself on offering diners local, regional dishes with many products sourced from nearby farms or the on-site vegetable garden and orchard. Choose one of their tasting menus and enjoy a mix of both meat and fish, or go à la crate – dishes range from spaghetti with sea urchin and black garlic or scampi with mandarin, pomegranate, wasabi and fennel, to suckling pig marinated in garam masala, cabbage and pumpkin. Eat indoors in the stylish dining room or alfresco on the terrace.
The Club House is a more casual option boasting views to the Gulf of Talamone. Varied plates include salads, burgers, charcuterie, pasta and grilled fish.
If you're feeling virtuous, there's a menu created by biologist and nutritionist Luca Naitana, containing balanced, healthy meals with a focus on a Mediterranean-type diet. And if you fancy getting in the kitchen and learning a few tricks, cooking classes are available.
The 73 rooms and 5 luxe villas are design-led and spacious, with views to the golf course from panoramic terraces. Individually decorated, interiors range from contemporary and minimalist to warm colour palettes, chrome and dark wood.
There are a number of idyllic sandy stretches to visit in the area from La Feniglia and Acqua Dolce to the rocky bay of Cala Piccola. Better still, Argentario has partnered with a selection of beach clubs; enjoy sun loungers and umbrellas as you dip in and out of the sea. Or you may simply want to relax by the pool, be pampered in the 2,700 square metre Espace Wellness Centre, or shop at the in-house boutique.
Sports enthusiasts can enjoy two tennis courts and padel courts, jogging trails and a high-tech gym. And of course, golf: the hotel is home to the only PGA licensed course in Italy –18 holes across 77 hectares that have been awarded the BioAgriCert environmental certification. The course and driving range were designed by the architect David Mezzacane and professional golfer Baldovino Dassù; the holes were shaped by Brian Jorgensen. The result is a varied and technically challenging game even for the most accomplished golfer. Pros are available throughout the year, and as the area has its own micro-climate, players can enjoy temperate weather all year round.
Children don't miss out on the fun here: there are indoor and outdoor play areas, a children's pool, lessons on how to swing a cub, and even a kid's spa menu. Babysitting can also be arranged.
