Argentario

argentario

Argentario is a wonderful foreland surrounded by the sea and connected with the mainland by the two Giannella and Feniglia’s tombolos and by an artificial isthmus, the Orbetello’s dam. On Argentario two famous and marvelous tourist towns border the sea: Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole. Originally two fishermen villages where tourism become their main resource. Argentario attracts tourists for its unique landscape, its sea environment and its exceptionally mild climate, making it an ideal holiday destination for all year long.
in the inland area of the promontory for hikers and mountain bikers there are many paths from the shores through a lush Mediterranean vegetation up to an high of 635 meters (“Punta Telegrafo” Telegraph Peak) with rarely beautiful views. For golf enthusiasts, Argentario Golf Club is a 77 hectares park with an 18-hole championship course (par 71 of 6191 meters) built in a natural amphitheater surrounded by olive trees and Mediterranean vegetation with an extraordinary landscape.
Another feature of the Argentario is its various marine environment. The two tombolos are nothing but two long sandy beaches sheltered by shady pine trees that make these areas particularly quiet, relaxing and easy access. For rocky seabed lovers, there are high cliffs and charming coves and wild and isolated beaches, hard to reach (best by boats), but lapped by crystal clear sea along all the Argentario coast. The very irregular coast offers to divers many different dive sites: walls, caves, wrecks and shoals full of sea life.
In ancient times the Argentario was also known and popular (as we can see with the Roman villa of Domizi Enobardi in Santa Liberata), and it has also kept some "historical gems" like the Spanish forts and watchtowers that defended the territory from the Saracen pirates attacks during the “Stato dei Presidi” (XIV century).
As it concerns food and wine, the regional cooking manages to combine both flavors of earth and sea. The dish par excellence is the fish stew known as “caldaro”, but we couldn’t forget to mention the excellent wine and oil, thanks to the farmers’ centuries-old job that managed with great effort to create terraced cultivation on this "rock called Argentario". Finally, we suggest you the main folkloristic event: the “Palio Marinaro  dell’Argentario” held every August 15 in the waters of Porto Santo Stefano since 1937.

 

Capalbio

Capalbio

Capalbio is an ancient village surrounded by the Maremma’s countryside. Inside its walls you can "breathe" the atmosphere of past centuries. Along the narrow streets, squares and old walkways you can have the feeling of stepping back in time.
At present Capalbio is a tourist destination, visited by many show business and movie stars, appreciated for its arts, nature and “tastes” of an extremely protected and safeguarded area. In the inner village of Capalbio and on the crenellated tower of the Aldobrandeschi castle (where Puccini’s piano is still well preserved) and from its walls, you can admire a landscape of extraordinary beauty. We also suggest you to visit St. Nicholas fifteenth-century church and the Oratory of Divine Providence where you can admire a fresco ascribed to Pinturicchio.
The woods surrounding Capalbio are ideal territories for hunting, very common practice here, especially the wild boar hunting. Other places to visit are the WWF natural reserve at the Burano Lake and the long beach sheltered by a thick Mediterranean vegetation. The traditional cuisine is no less in Capalbio: its wines and fowl dishes are appreciated internationally. Last but not least, don’t miss a visit to the magnificent masterpiece by the French-born artist Niki de Saint Phalle, the Tarot Garden.

Terme di Saturnia SPA

PDFPrintE-mail

saturnia

At the foot of the medieval village of Saturnia and surrounded by a typical park of the Maremma land you may find Saturnia spa, a lovely thermal baths resort. The “Terme di Saturnia Spa & Golf Resort” is a very high level, skillfully organized resort, able to satisfy a very demanding clientele. Immersed in the four pools (with their charming and relaxing vapor) you can enjoy the surrounding views of the nature of Maremma. An health center and a golf course 18 holes par 72 complete the offer.

An alternative to the thermal center is the Gorello Falls (or Mill Falls): free access, placed to 2 km from the village of Saturnia. The Terme di Saturnia’s spring sources from a volcanic crater (where is the resort’s main pool) and then waters slides along a natural stream (called the Gorello) for about 500 meters, where a gap forms a waterfall that flows around an ancient watermill and shapes a series of natural pools dug in the cliff. These falls are located in the open countryside but are easy to spot. On the left side of the road the vegetation opens and allows you to admire from afar the Saturnia Falls in all their beauty, even more striking, for its cloud of steam that constantly lies in this enchanted place. Diving in the warm water of the pools is a real pleasure even in the coldest months of the year, during which, however, we suggest you to keep close your robe and, just out of hot water, to cover you in a hurry. If you go there at night a torch will be useful, also remember that this is a natural place into the countryside so you won’t find dressing rooms or toilets. There’s only a free parking place.
