Alberta Ferretti and her family seem to have been on a mission to bring a smattering of style to this section of the Adriatic which is her hometown. Not the most glamorous part of the Italian coast, Carducci 76 does its best to up the barometer. The 1920s villa has had its insides primped with a series of suites that range from zen to minimalist African. Outside, the pool has a set of white sunbeds ready for a young Grace Kelly to recline on. Alternatively you can exit through a discreet door and get into the beach action.
