For honeymooners looking for a sweet and intimate Bed & Breakfast in Italy, La Torretta Bianca, which translates to the little white tower, is known for serene atmosphere and great location. The B&B is nestled on the hillsides overlooking the Adriatic sea, in the San Benedetto del Tronto, a town located at the bottom of the Marche Region in the center of Italy.
The B&B is tucked away on two acres of property, which consists of 5 terraces. The B&B resides on the middle terrace with walking paths throughout the gardens and fruit trees. The B&B is a gated community, with private parking and is located 3 kilometers from both downtown San Bennedetto del Tronto and the beaches of the Adriatic Sea. The Country Villa offers calm and tranquility to its guests, with various places to take in the amazing view or just sit on the mosaic patios and enjoy the calm sea breeze. For those that want to explore, the area offers a variety of things to do, see and taste throughout the Marche region. Whether you want to explore castles or medieval cities, take a hike in the Sibilini Mountains or relax on the beaches along the Adriatic coast, there is something for everyone. The region is also known for shopping in their open-air markets or their mom and pop leather shoe and bags shops that offer Todds, Geox, Prada and more. Since all the big brands are produced in this area, you can expect some amazing products. The medieval towns also offer antique markets once a month.
The location of this B&B is great because you are on the sea, but only 10 minutes away from the romantic scenery of the Italian hills, which is said to be no different then the landscape and vineyards of Tuscany. The area around this country B&B offers some of the best dinning and wines in the entire Marche region, guests can enjoy the option of local specialties of meat and pasta dishes or they can take advantage of being seaside and enjoy the fresh fish.
This B&B has a number of large bedrooms with bathrooms within the comforts of a warm and sweet home. Their most requested is their honeymoon suite, Dependance, which is an independent air conditioned cottage, with a its own private entrance, and offers a large bedroom, private bathroom, and a family room with wet bar and mini fridge. Another guest favorite is the Olive Suite, which offers guests a large bedroom and grand bathroom. For those honeymooners who enjoy candlelight and bubbles, this suite includes a full size bathtub and separate shower.
This B&B is not hard to get to and is located about two and a half hours east of Rome by car and they are 45 minutes away from two local airports, Ancona & Pescara Airport. All said and done, this Bed & Breakfast is a country villa, nestled in the hillsides overlooking San Benedetto del Tronto and the Adriatic Sea, and the Sibillini mountains. During summer the only sounds you can hear are the crickets in concert and when you are lucky enough on Saturdays you can hear the traditional music of the tango, waltz & salsa coming from the open-air ballroom downhill. It’s the beauty of a calm and tranquil location tied to the Italian country side and coast line, giving one wonderment, peace and possibilities.
