Hotel Lungomare has the perfect location and accommodations for a flexible guided biking vacation. The hotel is managed and owned by a family. The customer service was outstanding most of the staff spoke English and were incredibly accommodating, friendly and service oriented. I was one of the few English speaking guests and traveling alone but most of the other bikers and guests spoke some English. Making me feel welcome as a guest. The hotel is clean and there are many comfortable common seating areas. I enjoyed moving around the property to different seating areas taking advantage of the sun during the day. The hotel is on the water and there are balconies large enough to sit and enjoy the view of the Adriatic Sea. Meals are buffet style but don't let that dissuade you from eating there. The meals were excellent. There are new courses every day, fish, meats, pastas and a great selection of vegetables, breads, appetizers and desserts. The family actually dines in the same area as the guests. I traveled in March and the Cesenatico area was in the shoulder or off season but it was a perfect time to cycle. I stayed for 5 nights and every day was sunny 60 degrees F and warm enough to swim laps in the heated pool in the afternoon. The hotel provides bike rides every day unless it is raining. Rentals of all carbon road bikes can be arranged and they are stored in a locked garage area that guests can access if needed by a video system from the desk. I brought a helmet, my seat and pedals and they set up the bike with them. They provide different levels of biking and even will have one guide per rider if required. I participated in 4 rides from easy flat slow ones to riding up to towns in the hills. The group stops for a break after 90 minutes for a quick espresso then returns to the hotel. The rides are from 3- 4hours long. The guides are very knowledgeable about the area and often stop to point out a historic site or take some photos. The rides go through farmland and old towns fruit trees were in bloom and the smell of fresh tilled soil was in the air. There are more aggressive higher speed and climbing rides as well. I searched for guided biking tours that had flexible times in March and this is the only one that fit that criteria. Most of the other bike tours were specific 7 day intervals or self guided, and much more expensive. The routes we took were a lot of back roads and I would have had a hard time even with GPS finding these routes. The Cesenatico area is easily reached by train from major airports. There are many sights an easy ride and easy to find from the hotel. I booked my vacation with a tour group but I would suggest you contact the hotel directly as the booking group did not provide the specific information I requested. I highly recommend this as a biking vacation option and there are several types of rooms from single to suites. I combined this vacation with a tour of Milan, Florence, Venice and Bologna and was in Italy for 2 weeks. It was a very memorable experience.
