Hotel Il Pellicano, Tuscany

Inspired by California’s Pelican Point – the place where its creators first met – Hotel Il Pellicano was originally a hideaway for the lovers and their close friends. But today it has blossomed into one of the most interesting of all the Leading Hotels of the World.

Make it a destination on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Italy and you’ll find it has retained all the glamour, all the atmosphere and romance from that swinging decade; combined with the dash of contemporary sophistication that has earned it five stars for excellence, and the acclaim of all who have stayed there. You can expect a fabulous hideaway in Tuscany’s lovely Maremma region, complete with sun-drenched views over the sea. Not to mention a stylish beach club and some irresistible dining options.
