Poggio Verde and Elesta Travel are pleased to announce an extraordinary itinerary for golf enthusiasts.
Northern Italy offers magnificent courses with some of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. Poggio Verde’s location allows us to offer our guests a uniquely convenient and comfortable point of departure, surrounded with the most highly regarded courses of Northern Italy.
Each day begins with a delicious breakfast that includes eggs, fresh fruit, muesli, Italian cold-cuts and cheese, fresh bread and croissants. A real golfer’s breakfast, to a T! An after-golf snack is included in this tour, which will be followed by cocktails and dinner back at the villa.
Day 1 – Arrival and Poggio Verde tour
Arriving in Malpensa airport, our driver will accompany you, your luggage and clubs to Poggio Verde Villa. The villa will be your home for a full week, hence after some unpacking and lunch, we will take you for a quick tour of the surrounding area so that you will get the feel of this enchanting place. To kick start the authentic Italian experience, we will have our delicious homemade dinner in the warmth of nearby farm to table restaurant we love, Giovanna Passeri.
Day 2 – Golf Club Milano
After a healthy breakfast, you will head to Golf Club Milano, located in the middle of Villa Reale Park. This beautiful course is relatively flat, but its copious trees and long fairways have made it home to Milan’s most sought-after golf course, and was the location for the Italian Open the last two years.
Day 3 – Carimate Golf Club
After breakfast you will head north to Golf Club Carimate. This pretty course and its residential house were created in 1961 with respect for the environment as a prime concern.Piero Mancinelli undertook the modernization of the lovely 18-hole course, built on rolling hills, natural plateaus, native vegetation and lush woodland.
Day 4 – Milan Touring day
Leave your clubs at home, because you simply cannot come to northern Italy without paying a visit to lovely Milano, gourmet, culture, fashion and design capital of Italy! Our day will include shopping, a view of the Duomo and a roof-walk if weather permits, and a visit to Leonardo’s breathtaking Last Supper.
Day 5 – L’Albenza Golf Club
Nestled in the pretty hills of the Bergamo countryside, Albenza is one of the most well-maintained Italian clubs, appreciated both nationally and internationally. Located in the countryside near the pre-Alps and Lecco, with more than 50 years of history, Albenza offers a rather technical route, including both water and sand hazards and rich in natural slopes that make some green approaches a fun challenge.
Day 6 – Villa D’Este Golf Club
After breakfast, our driver will accompany you to Villa d’Este Golf Club, a stunning course near lake Como with views of the Alps. This gorgeous, hilly 18-hole course with majestic views of the alps and prealps is still one of the favourite destinations of many refined golfers.
After golf, we will drive to Lake Como for a visit to this stunning lake and cocktails on the shore.
Day 7 – Departure
After breakfast at the Villa our driver will take you, your packages and your great memories, to the airport.
