Super 10 days with a Canadian group of friends at the Anthurium Bike Hotel in Santo Stefano al Mare. Rides start right out the back of the property onto the region’s coastal bike/pedestrian pathway. They usually flow through the seaside towns then up into the mountain valleys to a café in a picturesque town.
Custom fitted high level carbon bikes came with our Group package. This also included 3 ample, delicious meals a day, extra bananas and water for the rides, 4 guides to handle bike adjustments and lead 3 tour levels daily as well as quick turn around laundry service for bike clothes.
Owner Andrea and his staff are friendly, helpful, honest and obliging – rushing to retrieve a lost wallet at a café, saving left behind clothing, quickly supplying room extras like a kettle service and iron, catering to special diets like gluten, dairy free or vegetarian.
Rooms are kept sparkling clean and are way above standard with comfortable supportive beds, ample cupboard space, glamorous finishings, sound sealing windows and doors. The area is very quiet and noise did not travel from neighbouring rooms.
All in all a marvellous destination.
