Camping Marina di Venezia: our long weekend at Cavallino Treporti
Hi Incurable Travelers,
waiting for the holidays at the beach we have granted a long weekend of sun in the enchanting setting of the Venetian lagoon, in Cavallino Treporti.
This peninsula is in an enviable position, a border line between the Venetian lagoon and the Adriatic Sea; One feature that struck me was the fact that since 1888, when the dam was built, the sandy shoreline takes land advancing 150 meters every ten years and creating a coastal area where many villages and campsites have settled, among the such as the Camping Marina di Venezia, even if defining it camping is very simplistic!
Since the arrival one has the feeling of entering a tourist village equipped with five-star services; after registration, a bracelet is provided to allow the guest free access to the camping facilities and attractions.
The numbers of the Camping Marina di Venezia are truly impressive, with 3000 pitches and 300 units, but despite this large capacity it never feels too many even in periods of maximum presence, as the common areas are large and well-structured. We speak of 300,000 square meters of fine beach framed by dunes covered with Mediterranean vegetation where you can eat in one of the three beach bars and for the children are equipped two game areas, as well as dogs beach.
Anyone wishing to enjoy moments of leisure in the swimming pool of the Camping Marina di Venezia can take advantage of the water park, a real paradise for adults and children, consisting of ten swimming pools, some heated, with slides of different sizes, lengths and heights, whirlpools and fountains of various quantities or simply swim in the Olympic pool.
During the day you can try the different activities offered by the polite animation of the village such as water aerobics, dance classes, windsurfing, archery, tennis, ping pong … and many more.
Parents wishing to carve out moments of relaxation can count on the mini club that entertains children morning and afternoon from 4 years of age with fun or sports activities; or they can play with their children in the Leopark, where there is minigolf, inflatables, trampolines, a classic playground with rides of various kinds and many other attractions.
The heart of the Camping Marina di Venezia is the so-called “liston”, a Venetian term for defining the street of the promenade, or a central avenue dedicated to shopping, recently renovated by the archistart Matteo Thun, who wants to be an open-air market in dialogue with nature.
The architect himself has also redesigned some of the housing units of the Camping Marina di Venezia, the villa gardens, reversing one of the chiefs of the spirit of the camper, or sharing, as it has created wonderful bungalows with a central living area in part to open and with no opening in the external perimeter; a sort of casket of comfort and relaxation.
In general all types of bungalows, marina lodge (with private Jacuzzi on the patio), de luxe lodge, garden lodge, art style lodge, air lodge, just to name a few, have modern design and great comfort. We have been guests of the air lodge, a charming 54 square meters house with two double bedrooms, each with a chromatic shower and service, a living area with a small kitchenette but equipped with every comfort and a nice patio with a dining area. relaxation area, where there is also a comfortable outdoor shower for when you get back warm from the beach, overlooking a well-kept grassy driveway.
For those accompanied by the faithful quadruped, in addition to having a dedicated beach, at the Marina di Venezia is available in the camping area called Marina 8000, a dog shower and a veterinary service for a fee as well as housing units, Rex lodge, in which your pet is welcome.
As you will have understood, the Camping Marina di Venezia is a place where everyone is welcome and in which one feels in the family despite the large size. You breathe the air of freedom, that feeling that only camping life can give and that immediately brings to mind the summers as children and the adventures experienced.
Big and small meet to share moments of fun and carefree holiday, everyone respected in their needs, such is the serenity that brings a holiday of this kind that my son of three and a half years not only would not want to go back home, but he has already asked us to return to the village of the winged lion!
