The astonishingly beautiful region of Tuscany has it all: art cities and ancient hill towns, high mountains and long sandy beaches, alongside luxurious hotels and some of Italy’s best food and wine.
Recommended place to stay:
Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort
Porto Ercole, Tuscany, Italy|www.argentarioresort.it|
Official star rating:
A contrast to many of Tuscany’s more traditional properties, the Argentario is a low-rise design hotel, literally built into the hillside in the heart of the unspoilt Maremma region.
A haven for sports lovers, the golf course is arguably Italy’s most beautiful, but tennis, horse-riding and five-a-side football are also on offer, while the concierge can arrange off-site activities, including sailing trips, watersports and transfers to a nearby beach club.
Beyond the soaring, space-age lobby are four classes of room, ranging from minimalist to modish safari-style, complete with freestanding stone tubs.
There’s a Bond villain-style vibe to this place for sure, so long as that villain enjoyed golf, wellness and good food.
