Il Pellicano

Hotel in Monte Argentario
Image by

One of Italy's most famous hotels, Il Pellicano is perched on a clifftop overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea and certainly makes the most of its location – the pool, restaurant terraces and many rooms command spectacular views. Rooms are amenity-packed, and common areas are superswish. Levels of service are exactly as one would expect from a hotel of this reputation (ie stellar).

The one great disappointment here is the food. Despite possessing a Michelin star, the quality of the food in the hotel's flagship restaurant doesn't live up to expectations.

Outside summer, rooms become (almost) affordable.
