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, terraces and still welcome a very exclusive clientele.Hotel Il Pellicano will reopen April 23rd, 2015.
