Day 4,5 and 6- Italy 

Standard

after bidding adieu to Portofino, our next stop was Porto Ercole. A Tuscan Island where locals go on holiday. 

Before heading there we decided to do a slight detour to “The Mall”. A big designer outlet shopping center in Rappello , Tuscany. 

We then headed to Porto Ercole. We stayed at the Argenterio Golf and Spa resort. It’s a member of the design hotels. There is one Leading hotel of the world on the island , Il  Pelicano , incase you are wondering. 

  

  

  

 

  Modern property with a black and white decor. We had a  junior suite with a terrace. 

Dinner Herrera was modern Tuscan good with local ingredients. 

     
We decided to explore the island a little Porto Stefano was the nearest to followed by Orbetello.

Hubby did a golf lesson at the hotel. I used the gym. They had 2 pools.indoor and outdoo the gym was well equipped. 

The next day we decided to return to one of our favorite Tuscany cities- Siena. It was just a 90 m drive. It was the only day it rained but it was still wonderful.

After a fantastic lunch at a cave restaurant ( boar’s meat sauce on Papadelle) , we had some great coffee followed by gelato. 

 Edit  
Since we couldn’t get a table at Pelicano due to the inclement weather  , we ended the trip with some delicious wine and dessert.   

 

  The drive to the airport was just 90 m. 

Bye Italy. See you again soon !!!
