The story behind the image
Early mornings are best enjoyed at the beach. And we look forward to the experience in 2023, because our preferred hotel at the Adria, the Hotel Torre in Bellaria Igea Marina in Italy, will re-open in 2023. This is exciting because the hotel managers, Graziella and Costanzo, have been considering retirement as it is an enormous effort and also a high financial risk to operate a hotel in Italy these days.
You may wonder what makes their hotel so special? It’s not in the first row at the beach. It does not have a pool. And the village – Bellaria – is nice but it’s not really unique among the countless villages at the Adriatic Coast. So, what is it then? It’s Graziella and Costanzo Pantani, their family, and their team. They go the extra mile for their guests and provide genuine Italian hospitality with a friendliness we have experienced in just very few places around the world before.
Soooo, if you’re considering a trip to the area around Rimini, do yourself a favor and consider Hotel Torre in Bellaria. You won’t regret it.
