This magnificent hotel, on Tuscany’s Argentario peninsula, is surrounded by centuries-old olive trees set in an extensive garden.
The hotel's central building and cottages contain rooms and suites decorated in an individual style - no two are the same. The dining room has a large terrace with a beautiful sea view, and a cellar which holds more than a thousand different wines. The excellent cuisine is both Italian and international, and the chef has worked in several Michelin-starred restaurants. The hotel has its own spa with treatments by Phytomer, a gym, heated seawater swimming pool with sea views, private beach, watersports available from Paradise Cove and a tennis court. There is also a golf course within 15 minutes drive. The charming fishing village of Porto Ercole is just two miles away, and the medieval town of Capalbio lies only thirty minutes distant.
Il Pellicano has been awarded the Purple Lily by Relais & Châteaux recognising the hotel as one of the 19 most prestigious hotels among its 469 members.
