A real traveller is a temporary resident of a place, driven by the desire to discover the places and people near his home with his own eyes and mind. In this area of Tuscany you can experience the pleasure of seeing the coasts from the sea and visiting the nearby islands. The boats provided for guests by the hotel are welcoming, modern and have all the comforts necessary to render your trip truly unforgettable.
Should you wish to leave all your thoughts behind, the ideal excursion would be to spend the entire day in the boat with a picnic lunch prepared at the hotel by our two-Michelin-starred chef. Alternatively, if you like the idea of discovering simple local cuisine, stop off at the island of Giglio or Giannutri and at one of the restaurants by the port you will find a table reserved in your name. Your lunch, featuring the fresh catch of the day, will provide happy memories of your Tuscan holiday. Just a few miles separate Il Pellicano from the islands of Giannutri and Giglio, which can be quickly reached by the hotel’s super-comfortable boats. In just a short space of time you will find yourself amidst wild nature in locations with rich history. You can alternate birdwatching with deep-sea diving, walks in natural parks and visits to historic castles and towns. On the island of Giannutri, with its mild climate all year round, tropical plants grow such as palm trees and wild orchids, and on the coastline there are numerous caves, the most famous being Cala dei Grottoni. The colonisations first by the Greeks, then by the Romans are visible in the ancient relics of the port and a villa. The history of the island of Giglio dates back to the Stone Age but it was the Romans who lived there in maximum splendour, as is demonstrated by the patrician villa of the Domizi Enobarbi. The limonite and granite cliffs smoothed by the wind form bays and coves, protecting sandy beaches surrounded by Mediterranean scrub.Boat brochure >
