The best location at Maremma – Toscana
Imagine an ancient village perched 470 m above sea level, nearby the lovely village of Pari.
This village, called Monte Acuto, boasts ancient traditions. Known by the name of “Montegutolo” owes its fame to the Count of Ardenghesca, under whose lordship between the 12th and 13th century expanded the community. Soon Siena, given the strategic location of Ardenghesca, overtook the territory, referred as Montegutolo and became the stronghold. The complex organization of the community brought it to have its own Statute, dating all the way back to 1280, today the oldest in the vernacular. Thus, this is how the legend of Monte Acuto began…Would you like to be part of it too?

Royal Golf La Bagnaia
The course of the Royal Golf La Bagnaia is the first Tuscan 18 holes designed by the famous architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
This is a Par 71 long 6.101 meters that extends on an area of 120 hectares, perfectly harmonized within the context of the sweet hills of Siena. The Tuscan morphology represents a typical example of Inland Links, which refers to the Scottish Highlands with its rough rippling in the wind. The field is embellished with charming lakes by a majestic Club house, from which you can enjoy a unique view on all the 18 holes and the towers of Siena. Playing on this course is unique and exciting not only due to the mastery of Trent Jones, but also by the amazing views on the nature and the medieval city of Siena that reserves every hole (www.labagnaiaresort.com/it/tariffe/green-fee/140-0.html)
