Hiking, Cycling and Outdoor Activities
Monte Argentario holiday farmhouse is located on the slopes of the mountain after which it is named, the perfect base for splendid adventures on foot or by mountain bike on the numerous paths connecting the hills with the sea.
Only 1 km from the holiday farmhouse is a cycle path known as “the world tour” offering views of the eastern part of Orbetello Lagoon from all angles, as well as glimpses of the area’s unique flora and fauna (wild boar, deer, foxes, cormorants, pink flamingoes). Every kilometre there is an access route to the beaches of Duna della Feniglia, an important nature reserve.
A 2 km path starts out from the farmhouse, crosses our farm and leads to another path climbing up to the Monastery of the Passionist Fathers, a peaceful spot with unique views over Orbetello Lagoon and the Tuscan archipelago.
It was built in the 18th century on the orders of St. Paul of the Cross, founder of the Passionist Congregation, who decided that this would be the perfect spot for a spiritual life enjoying the beauty of creation.
Rock climbers can enjoy two spectacular excursions in the Argentario:
Capo d’uomo cliff – Considered one of the most beautiful cliffs over the sea in Italy, it is a continuous technical climb. Located on the northern slope of Porto Santo Stefano, the climb is enriched by the ruins of an ancient watchtower over the sea.
Canne d’organo cliff – Near Porto Ercole, surrounded by dense forest between the sea and the sky. When the strong wind shakes the rocks, they sound like organ pipes, giving the spot its name. The climate permits climbing year-round.
Golfers will be sure to appreciate the Argentario Golf Club, only 10 minutes from the farmhouse, with a practice green and an 18-hole course. The club also has two polo courts, a sand track, stables and a clubhouse.
Athletes can also enjoy sailing, kitesurfing and windsurfing, diving and snorkelling in waters abounding in fish, sea grass and colourful sponges to admire and photograph.
Visitors wishing to explore the coast may hire a rubber dinghy or boat to view the promontory from the sea and reach even the most hidden little coves, caves and islets, landing on the beach directly from the sea.
In summer visitors can take a “fishing holiday”, spending a day on a working fishing boat and dining on their catch.
