2015 is shaping up to be a record breaking hot and dry summer here in Marche and now that we are well and truly into August everyone is heading to the coast. One of our favourite ways to get away from it all is to head to sea in a boat. There are various options but, for us, by far the best is the elegant launch operated by La Torre Restaurant.
It has become a highlight of our summers and last week we took it out for the second time this year. Just sit back and sip Prosecco as the skipper navigates the beautiful Conero coastline, one of the most scenic stretches of the Adriatic, past secluded beaches, historic fishermen’s caves and a Napoleonic fort. Then, while you swim in the crystal clear waters he lays the table for a 4 course lunch or dinner, prepared by the restaurant and always a delicious treat whether it is the default seafood, veggie or meat option.
The beaches may be busy but, for a day, you can live like the other half!
