The beach resort of Portonovo is situated within the Province of Ancona, on the Adriatic Coast of Marche. It is part of the Comune of Ancona, which is located about 12 kilometres away. Portonovo has a pebble beach and is surrounded by a pretty wildlife area. Just behind the beach there is the picturesque lake Lago Grande. The intense blue colour of the sea at Portonovo will take your breath away, and it is surely one of the most stunning sights along the Conero Peninsula. Portonovo, itself, is a fairly compact sea-side secluded resort but it can get quite busy during the peak summer months of July and August. There are a number of nice hotels nearby which we are featuring in this post.

The Seebay Hotel experiments a new style – nearly a no style – because the choice is for nature to impress, not baroque embellishments. So rooms and lounges all feature a low key simple elegance. You can visit the spa to indulge in deep-tissue massages, facials, or Ayurvedic treatments, and local cuisine is served at Ristorante La Fonte, featuring a traditional authentic menu. One of the main menu characters is the Mosciolo, the wild mussel of the Conero Riviera, protected through a Slow Food Presidium. Enjoy!
