Pellicano Hotels


Pellicano Hotels owns and manages three among the finest 5 star Luxury hotels in Italy, Hotel Il Pellicano, La Posta Vecchia Hotel and Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa, all three members of The Leading Hotels of the World. Hotel Il Pellicano is a five star seaside hotel in Porto Ercole. It offers 47 rooms and suites, a Michelin starred restaurant, a boutique and Health & Beauty Centre, a private beach platform and sea water pool.
La Posta Vecchia Hotel was built in 1640 upon the ruins of two roman villas and is today a magnificent hotel with only 19 bedrooms. Proudly dominating the seascape from a rocky promontory, Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa overlooks the Gulf of Naples. The hotel was built on the ruins of a 16th-century watchtower and offers 52 rooms and suites, 2 restaurants and a wellness centre with thermal waters.


At Pellicano Hotels Group, luxury is timeless yet understated, it is in the atmosphere, a gesture, and any number of many small details.
The iconic Hotel Il Pellicano and La Posta Vecchia Hotel were joined in 2019 by the suitably fascinating Mezzatorre Hotel & Thermal Spa, newly infused with that Pellicano Hotels’ personality. Open for ‘the season’, each hotel captures the loveliest times in Italy from spring to autumn, when sunlight glints off the fresh seas lapping La Posta Vecchia’s ochre façade and the private coves beneath Il Pellicano and Mezzatorre. The Pellicano Grand Tour through Tuscany, Lazio and Campania is the essence of the group, nurtured with a very personal care under the dynamic direction of Marie-Louise Sciò, CEO & Creative Director. As an acknowledged arbiter of contemporary fine tastes and armed with an architectural background, Marie Louise cultivates a contemporary creative spirit at Pellicano Hotels, which she shares with warmth and wit.
The Group is headed by the Sciò family, whose goal is to grow what founder Roberto Sciò has started. Finding and preserving unique places with personality and promoting the Pellicano style in the world, as an icon of Italian hospitality and not only: timeless, elegant cultured and eclectic.
