Hotel Il Pellicano pool

Located right on the coast in Tuscany, just a 1-hour 30-minute drive from Rome, Il Pellicano is the perfect place to relax by the sea after the wonders and culture of a city break to Rome. With a spa too, you can really unwind and enjoy the views. Il Pellicano is an elegant, historic and unique small hotel situated on Tuscany’s Argentario peninsula. Built in the mid-1960s by Michael and Patricia Graham as a private club for their glamorous circle of friends and christened ‘Il Pellicano’ as the couple met at Pelican Point in California, the hotel is now well known for its beautiful aspect and its Michelin-starred restaurant.

The hotel is located close to the port of Porto Ercole, a picturesque marina town popular with jetsetters and the yachting fraternity. Its coastal location in the Maremma district of Tuscany means it is pretty much the same distance from Rome as it is from Pisa and Florence, making it a fantastic place to stop and relax for those travelling around the cities and countryside of Tuscany. This Mediterranean resort remains an Italian legend. Why? The position is stunning, on a cliff overlooking a rugged private cove. Opened in 1965, its owners have spent their lives maintaining its timeless dolce vita vibe. The hotel has a horse-riding, trekking, and cycling excursions through the Maremma with the concierge.

Il Pellicano boasts 34 double rooms, 5 junior suites, 4 deluxe suites and 7 master deluxe suites. Just about all rooms face the sea. There are also cottages available for private rental. Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, safe and complimentary minibar come as standard.

Perfect simplicity, rooms created with the light luxury and Italian flair that typifies Il Pellicano.

There are two restaurants on site. One is Peligrill, the more informal option where most guests go for every day dining, which serves items such as delicious grilled fish. The Pellicano is the property’s Michelin-starred spot, with chef Michelino Gioia at the helm. Expect fresh seafood (try the John Dory with Gallinacci mushrooms and wild sorrel sauce) and local meat from Lazio and Tuscany (like a pigeon chest with foie gras, a Gioia special). The raw red shrimp in bottarga cream is unmissable. Part of the fun of eating here is for the parade of old Italian money and young hipsters dressed to the nines.

Hotel Il Pellicano The Chef

The Chef

Guests admire Tuscany’s sea and country but in Chef Gioia’s eyes it is nature’s generous larder.

Kind and understanding, the staff are happy to help with anything from a late check-out to setting up beautiful bouquets of flowers for a special occasion, and also have plenty of suggestions for area adventures—like renting a boat for the day or nearby restaurants to check out. However, many guests never leave the property because of the tennis courts, pool, spa, duo of restaurants and seafront deck. Details like a seaside bar and its now-iconic beach bags give the facilities an updated appeal while still remaining five-star.
