Il Pellicano

Località Sbarcatello
Sbarcatello , Italy http://www.pellicanohotel.com/
39-0564-858-111

Down a narrow, winding road on the promontory’s southeastern tip stands the cliffside Il Pellicano Hotel, a sheltered hideaway that attracts a high-flying clientele (yes, that’s Bono by the pool). Most of the 50 rooms—spread out between the main, Pompeii-red house and six freestanding villas—were recently refreshed by owners Roberto Sciò and his daughter Marie-Louise, who just published a book to celebrate 33 years of ownership. The country-cottage-style rooms (exposed-beam ceilings; terra-cotta floors) are done up with quirky accessories including pineapple-shaped ceramic lamps and sun mirrors. But the hotel’s ace in the hole is its waterfront location.
