Il Pellicano
Porto Ercole – Tuscany – Italy

“The most romantic place in the world” sigh visitors smitten by the “phenomenal sea views” and “quiet privacy” of this “magical” Relais & Châteaux villa nestled on the terraced Tuscan coast, whose “wonderful staff” is “beyond remarkable”; even those who “typically shy away from hotel restaurants” pronounce chef Antonio Guida’s cuisine “exquisite”, but some recoil at the “frightful prices”.

Voted 6th best amongst the world’s top 100 hotels by Conde Nast Traveller (UK)and the best Luxury Hotel in Southern Europe. In the 2009 Gold List it was ranked top scoring property in Europe with a perfect 100 for food, design and hospitality.

Pepper-red villas stacked against steep Tuscan cliffsides, overlooking an indigo sea – the cheery, vibrant atmosphere of Il Pellicano can be seen from far offshore.

Set amidst olive and cypress trees in an extraordinary coastal setting at Porto Ercole on the breathtaking Tuscan coastline in Italy sits Relais & Châteaux’ acclaimed Il Pellicano, a secluded seaside resort property on the ruggedly beautiful Tyrrhenian coastline.

Il Pellicano is situated on the southeastern tip of the Tuscan peninsula of Monte Argentario, close to the pretty seaside town of Porto Ercole and in the region of Grossetto. Monte Argentario is close to the two famous islands of Giglio and Giannutri, and a little more than two hours from Rome’s international airport.

The main Il Pellicano swimming pool (with heated sea water) sits on the cliff edge overlooking the Tyrrenhian Sea. The cottages and suites cascade down the cliff edge dotting this rocky, pine-carpeted peninsula, a spur on Italy’s kneebone 150 km north of Rome. The atmosphere in this family run property lies between exclusive club and luxury private home. An elevator takes you down to where the sea meets the rock face to a secluded sun deck and bathing platform. There’s an underground garage were guests park their prestige cars and a cliffside restaurant with panoramic ocean views that received 2 Michelin stars – again – in 2010. N.B. open April to October.

  • And here is my favourite - mocha -  a mix of local coffee from Chiapas and Mayan chocolate with a design on top that would warm the cockles of any coffee lovers heart - liquid Mayan gold and no need for sugar! #Mexico #ahcacao
  • #ahcacao chocolate cafe in #playadelcarmen has some of the best coffee chocolate and mocha I've tried anywhere, their speciality is chocolate caliente - pure melted liquid Mayan hot chocolate with spices and chile.  I'm partial to their sugar free chocolate bars - yes there's some in my bag for you @natassia_halabi that is if it makes it all the way back to LA. Forget Swiss, #Mayanchocolate has to be the best in the world! #mexico
  • Right across from the Blue Lobster on corner of Quinta Avenida or 5th Avenue is the upmarket #thompsonhotel #thompsonplayadelcarmen that has the best rooftop views in #playadelcarmen and some mad veggie tacos - ten times the street price but who cares when this is the view!
