Hotel details
Hotel Sans Souci sits at the far end of the beach in Gabicce Mare, around 10 minutes' walk from the modern town centre. The sand slopes gently into the water outside the hotel, ideal for swimming. The Daily Telegraph calls the town one of Europe's 28 best hidden seaside resorts, and praises the beach as Italy's "seaside secret".

The hotel's main highlight is the heated rooftop swimming pool, which has panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea and sometimes hosts live music performances. The restaurant also has beach views, and breakfast and 4-course dinners are included every day. You'll also get a small glass of local wine every night at dinner.

We recommend seeking out the delicious and unique specialities from the region of Marche—especially vincisgrassi (a type of wild mushroom and prosciutto lasagne), olive ascolane (a deep-fried olive stuffed with meat), and the town's own freshly caught seafood.

Beyond the sands lie some pretty Medieval hamlets, with Fiorenzuola di Focara and Casteldimezzo both around a 15-minute taxi ride from the hotel. A tourist bus runs direct to Gradara—a beautiful fortified village with its own castle—in around an hour. You can also hike the coastal trails of Monte San Bartolo, a nature reserve full of wild beaches and hidden coves.
