A cocktail at sunset with Luca Sardella
Here at the Boutique Hotel Torre di Cala Piccola, we love to welcome guests who talk about their experience in the Argentario. A few weeks ago, Luca Sardella came to visit us for a relaxing cocktail at sunset. In the episode of “Sempre Verde” that aired on the Rete 4 television channel on 24th October, the famous host and agronomist visited the Cala Piccola, reminding the public about the exclusivity of our Boutique Hotel that is much loved by celebrities and those who love the good life.
On his journey on a discovery of the Argentario area, Sardella visited the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve, a 6-7-kilometre dune with an area of 474 hectares connecting the promontory to Orbetello. It is a magnificent place for a stroll through nature, to explore the lush flora and beautiful fauna. Indeed, Sardella closely admired certain plants such as Lentisco, an arboreal species typical of the Mediterranean Scrub, used in the Roman Etruscan era to make oil to burn for illumination. Then there is the Stracciabraghe, another name for the local Salsapariglia plant, a vine with abundant spines and heart-shaped leaves.
Not to be missed at lunch was savouring one of the typical dishes of the Argentario area, the Caldaro di Pesce – originally a poor soup made by fishermen, it was prepared when out on the waters to cast nets. How is it prepared? First, fresh fish is essential – a mixture of tub gurnard, red scorpionfish, weever, fresh cuttlefish, baby octopus, slipper lobster and certain mussels. After preparing a base of garlic and fresh tomatoes, baby octopus and white wine is added. In accordance with their cooking time, the other seafood varieties are added. The soup is ready in about twenty minutes.
Towards evening, simply head back to Cala Piccola for a nice pre-dinner drink whilst enjoying the majestic sunset, overlooking the Giglio and Giannutri islands. This is the dreamy atmosphere, with a view extending as far as the eye can see, that only our Boutique Hotel surrounded by Mediterranean Scrub can offer. Not only Sardella but every guest feels like a VIP here. Our staff will pamper you to ensure you savour an unforgettable holiday, because relaxation is the true luxury.
