Sport and other activities
The Il Sassone Estate offers the possibility to have a satisfying stay full of interesting activities. The Maremma region is so rich in resources and fascinating places that it deserves more than just a brief excursion. Here are our suggestions to make your stay unique and unforgettable!
The Maremma region is full of thermal springs with extraordinary healing properties that have been used since Etruscan times.
The centres closest to the property (famous also for their fantastic beauty farms) are Saturnia and Venturina. Don't miss the Biancane geysers that gush from the ground near Monterotondo Marittimo and Lardarello that give the landscape an evocative atmosphere like in Dante's Inferno.
- The Golf Club Toscana, in Il Pelagone, (an 18 hole course) is just 15 minutes away.
- The Golf Club Punta Ala (an 18 hole course with a sea view) is less than 40 minutes away.
- The Argentario Golf Club in Porto Ercole (an 18 hole course) is just 1h away.
We have agreements with these Clubs for special rates for our guests and we can book them directly on your behalf.
For those that have never tried this fascinating, ancestral sport Il Sassone has an archery range complete with straw targets and the silhouette of a wild boar to practice on.
If on the other hand you would like a more structured approach to archery we can book lessons of all levels at the Centro Arcieri di Scarlino, where qualified instructors can help you to learn the basics of the sport or improve the skills if you are more experienced.
Entertainment and excursions
At the request of guests the owners can suggest itineraries of particular interest and beauty, book excursions and take guests to visit the most important and prestigious wineries in the area for wine tasting events.
Cycling fans can rent mountain bikes or any other type of bike and join enjoyable excursions that are arranged weekly in the wild Maremma countryside. For larger groups we can organise excursions on trails of particular interest with or without expert guides.
Cross the Maremma by bicycle , by special arrangement with the company Maremma in bici we can arrange to rent bicycles and/or mountain bikes for excursions or trips of varying degrees of difficulty. Maremma in bici can deliver the bikes to Il Sassone and give you advice on the most suitable cycling routes. Prices vary depending on different needs and opportunities.
For those interested in these activities we kindly ask you to let us know when you make your reservation so that we can organise everything to suit your particular requirements or ask us when you arrive at Il Sassone about the activities on offer during your stay.
