Certificate of Excellence
The elegant five-star hotel, located in Tuscany's Maremma region, was built in the mid-1960s as a love nest for Michael and Patricia Graham and it is today part of The Leading Hotels of the World. The home, called Il Pellicano as a tribute to the first time the couple met at Pelican Point in California, was initially a club for the Grahams' friends, but was subsequently expanded and opened to friends of friends. However, a few things remained the same: the pleasure of feeling at home and the glamorous and slightly retro atmosphere. The hotel's discrete luxury and the still-rugged Tuscan countryside attract the international jet set. Today, the cottages and the central building are suspended between the sky and the sea, with large rooms, windows and terraces where it's unclear where the indoors end and the outdoors begin. There are pathways and stairways, fragrant gardens and discrete corners, a restaurant with one Michelin stars and three Gambero Rosso forks, a heated sea-water swimming pool, a spa with a sea view to soothe both the body and the soul, and for those wanting to take a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea, a white platform with chaise longue and immaculate parasols.

This is a charismatic Tuscan retreat with pretty villas surrounded by rosemaries, bougainvilles and beautiful ocean views.
It’s not easy to get there,but believe me... worth it.
If you are visiting Rome and you have 3 spare days to relax and sunbathing ...do it!
It will take you

Spent 3 nights here and it was perfect. We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a little privacy. It's certainly that - secluded on the quieter side of Porto Ercole. We had a beautiful room and huge terrace overlooking the sea. Customer service was perfect! And the gr

Like most of the reviews we thought the place was amazing. The views are like from a postcard, and the hotel has everything you need for a several day stay. The staff is pro.

The hotel is a bit of a drive to the town, and on steep hills. It is probably a place you would want t

This hotel is exceptionally beautiful with Stunning views over the Tyrrhenian Sea.

We were only there one night in a junior sea view room. We had arrived on a transatlantic flight and so that may have had an effect on our enjoyment.

The room was pretty simple compared to othe

We would like to book a wedding here June of 2019. How many people can you accommodate and do you have a wedding planner available?
If coming from Rome, how would we get to the hotel? Trying to work this into our trip somehow and hoping the logistics work. Thank you!
I would suggest rent a car. It is lovely to drive there and takes less than 2 hours. Then you have a car for getting in and out of town from the resort. The town being Porto Ecole. The hotel is lovely but very expensive to eat there every night. The village on the other hand has some lovely local restaurants if you like to do the local thing. A few down on the coast road and one extremely good fish restaurant set back off the coast road about mid-way down that is up a side street and set up off the street and like a conservatory (trying to recall the name, (doesn't look much from outside but fantastic fish inside!). If hiring a car get your excess insurance online. You can get an annual policy for about 50 euro. Alternatively, do as the other reviewer suggests and get the transfer and use the hotel concierge service up and down from town. 60 euro per night return journey. Or just stay in the hotel if you are happy to do that as it is also lovely. It has a very retro 60s style bar with piano and a lovely calm atmosphere. But it's nice to see a bit of the word too. Best of luck.

"The rooms with the patios facing the water are pretty special"
"All rooms have a view."
"Ask for a room close to the pool/ restaurant - rather than up the hill where you will need to take a golf cart or take a long walk."
"Any Sea view room"
"We loved staying in the main lodge - don't come here without confirming a sea view room. The view is a must."
