If you’re dreaming of a slice of dolce vita under the Tuscan Sun, get the book Hotel Il Pellicano published by Rizzoli editions a few months ago. It’s a beautiful compilation of some of the high life moments that took place at this mythical hotel, shot by three great photographers: Slim Aarons who has been returning to Il Pellicano every year for the past 25, Juergen Teller whose work as fashion photographer I love and John Swope, famous Magnum and Life Magazine photographer.
A family stroll by Porto Ercole marina with the nanny, by Slim Aarons (1967)
The swimming pool, by Slim Aarons (1973)
Yvonne Scio and daughter Isabella Beatrice, by Juergen Teller (2009)
The Private Cove by Slim Aarons (1991)
No doubt the hotel is family-friendly and will cater to your every needs…but If you can’t get a reservation at Il Pellicano for this summer, just get the book….(!)
