If you are trying to escape the mass accommodations that you can find at the seaside, do come to this marvelously-named B&B. We arrived at night, around 10pm, and the external parts of the house were lit for an after-dinner family gathering which would come to an end very soon after our arrival. The sky was clean, no city lights in the neighborhood, and we could see the stars. At first, we could not find the place, so we called the owners who kindly answered the phone and gave further directions (but we would not have needed it if we read more carefully their website in advance). The house is very nice and it has a pleasant garden, that we mostly enjoyed the following morning. Our room was good enough: linen was clean, although we were not convinced by the style of the furniture and decorations. Next door there was a (very well mannered) child. The child would not disturb us because he was quiet enough; nevertheless, we could hear him very well and we guessed we could be heard as well. We slept in an extremely quiet and peaceful environment, and in the morning the owners had set up breakfast for us. Freshly-made pies, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, coffee, juices, all served in the most beautiful gazebo. The thing we liked the most was the friendliness of the owners. They were genuinely interested in sharing their life with us -- they told us about their previous job and their plans for the B&B. We also had a car problem, and they sent us to one of their mechanical friends to fix it. The Marche countryside
We do think this is way a much better option than a hotel on the beach. While a hotel on the beach would give you the opportunity of waking up and immediately go to swim in the sea without having to worry about parking spaces, etc., this place would offer you a variety of valuable opportunities, among which to meet nice people, which might not be the goal of your vacation but, trust me, it is something that greatly enriches it -- and you realize it only once you get home. And -- I repeat -- the Marche countryside is incredible (look up for Mario Giacomelli photography to get an idea).
