Season 1 Episode 1
In the 1926 summer setting of Hotel Portofino, a very British family and their guests enjoy the Italian Riviera. Bella Ainsworth (Natascha McElhone) runs a hotel with the help of her caddish husband Mark Umbers and her snobbish, difficult-to-please visitor (Anna Chancellor). An thrilling story of personal growth fueled by the liberated culture, environment, and food of Italy, complete with political corruption, sexual intrigue, and the theft of a “old master” painting.
