As the Ryder Cup comes to Italy, why not take a trip to Tuscany and the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort to celebrate!
For a truly memorable celebration to welcome in 2024, the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort in the magical Maremma region of Tuscany is offering a New Year’s Eve package that includes Cenone di San Silvestro (New Year’s Eve Dinner), live music and a DJ set finished off by a fantastic fireworks display overlooking the Resort’s golf course and the Orbetello Lagoon.
This year’s packages at the luxury Resort that combine fine dining, wellness and golf for an unforgettable start to the New Year are priced from 2,270 euros (UK£1,973) for four nights in a double Superior Room whilst a three-night package in a double Suite costs from 4,126 euros (UK£3,587).
For those looking for more independence over the New Year period, a collection of luxury villas a golf buggy ride from the hotel lie nestled amongst the local Mediterranean flora providing privacy and tranquility as well as panoramic views of Monte Argentario and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The three and five-bedroomed properties boast stylish interiors equipped with the finest Italian furniture selected by Milan-based interior designer, Andrea Fogli, and extensive terraces, complete with outdoor hot tubs. Moreover a generous 20% discount benefits anyone booking five nights or more in one of these villas.
The New Year’s Eve menu, prepared by renowned local chef Emiliano Lombardelli, will commence with champagne and oysters and will include lobster carpaccio with citrus pearls and Italian caviar, green pasta ravioli, braised pork cheek and homemade semifreddo. After midnight as tradition dictates, local sweets will be served followed by Italian Christmas sausages, lentils and grapes.
Located on the captivating Monte Argentario promontory, Argentario is set in a nature reserve that provides a serene and tranquil environment in which to relax whilst the extensive 2,700 sq metre spa and wellness centre is the ideal place to revive and restore oneself after all the New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Argentario is just 90 minutes by car from Rome Fiumicino Airport and two hours from Rome Ciampino Airport.
Golf at Argentario
For those who have made New Year’s resolutions about embarking on a more healthy and physically active lifestyle in 2024, padel and tennis courts, e-bikes, trekking, horse riding and jogging paths around the property offer a range of opportunities to kick start the year as you mean to go on.
And of course, the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort is home to a championship golf course that was awarded PGA National Italy status back in 2019 in recognition of the quality of the layout and the comprehensive practice facilities at the Argentario Golf Club.
This stunning course is not only challenging, thanks to strategically-placed water hazards, links-style undulating fairways and small greens, but offers dramatic panoramas of the Orbetello Lagoon and Tyrrhenian Sea on the front nine and soaring views of Monte Argentario on the back nine as you pass through serene olive groves.
At this time of the year, Argentario also hosts the prestigious Christmas Pro Am which sees professional and amateur golfers from all over Italy compete on the Tuscan golf course.
Inaugurated in 2006, the layout and driving range were designed by the architect, David Mezzacane, and professional golfer, Baldovino Dassù, whilst Brian Jorgensen subsequently shaped certain holes. Established in a natural protected area, the course has been given the BioAgriCert certification for its eco-compatibility and plays host to a number of birds such as the black ibis and fauna such as the small deer.
The Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort offers a range of outdoor & sporting activities in addition to golf
Though immersed in nature, art and cultural cities including Florence, Siena and Rome are ideal for day trips away from the Resort as are visits to nearby vineyards and olive oil mills to taste local produce.
An added attraction is the number of traditional events that take place in the Maremma to celebrate the Christmas season. Charming Christmas markets, for example, sell everything from hand-crafted goods like toys and decorations to freshly roasted chestnuts, hot chocolate and every kind of sweet local delicacies. Meanwhile in the hamlets of Porto Ercole, Caldana and Sorano, live re-enactments of the Nativity and aspects of village life at that time play out within the ancient historic walls as locals transform their villages into Bethlehem.
At this time of the year there are fewer crowds allowing visitors to enjoy nature in a pristine state, historical and cultural riches and an unspoilt picturesque landscape and coastal beaches in mild, but not freezing temperatures.
The first 5-star Resort in Italy and one of the few Golf Resorts in Europe to belong to the golf portfolio of the largest and most prestigious hospitality group in the world, the Marriott International group. As a member of Marriott Bonvoy, guests benefit from a loyalty program that allows all travellers to collect points and transform them into benefits, free stays and much more.
