My aim is to capture attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.

Slim Aarons, Il Pellicano

The photographer found abundant inspiration throughout his summers at Il Pellicano where Kirk Douglas, Britt Ekland or Yul Brynner might enjoy a romantic getaway.

Italy’s Argentario Coast is glitteringly gorgeous, breeze over in one of our boats to discover hidden coves, take a dip at the Grotta Azzurra. Giglio is a true gem of nature, lapped by crystal clear water with sea meadows which make delicious snorkeling. On the island there are picturesque villages with narrow streets and little shops, bars and restaurants.

The most southerly island of Giannutri is a half-moon of wild beauty, with more bedazzling snorkeling and wreck dives. You can also visit the Roman Villa Domizia created by the Imperial family. The aspect, terraces and steps down to the sea, show a similar Pellicano appreciation for a Tuscan coastal location.

Take a swing with your clubs at the prestigious Argentario Golf Club, just 15 minutes from Il Pellicano, this 18 hole par 71 panoramic course offers views over the Orbetello Lagoon, coast and hillside.

The Tuscan Archipelago is a natural paradise with islet jewels dotted through the sapphire seas, famed through history and literature, from Elba to Montecristo.
