Polo Amidst The Beauty Of Nature: Argentario Polo Club
Located in the plain of a promontory, The Argentario Polo Club is known for its natural beauty.
Born in the 80s from the idea of a group of enthusiastic polo players from different Italian and foreign cities to consummate the dream of playing Polo in a beautiful location like Monte Argentario, the Argentario Polo Club is located in the plain of a promontory, between olive groves and vineyards. Known for its natural beauty, the club is surrounded by hills that form a beautiful natural coliseum in front of the Orbetello Lagoon. The 18-hole golf course in the Argentario Golf Resort & SPA, just adds to the beauty of the Polo Club. The Argentario, an ancient island welded over the centuries to the continent, is a high rocky foreland dominated by Mount Telegraph. Covered by thick Mediterranean scrub and cultivations of citrus fruits, olives, and vines, the island is characterized by a coast jazzed up by gulfs, peaks, islets and tiny suggestive bays. The Polo facility at the Argentario Polo Club includes 2 polo fields and a sand track. Delight in the delicacies of the La Vivienda Restaurant inside the clubhouse adds to the mist of the showers and changing rooms.
