Surroundings

Because of its naturalistic position between sea and lagoon, and because of its closeness to Venice, one of the historical cities of biggest charm, Cavallino takes a delight in combining outdoor sports and excursions and gastronomic trips, together with the enjoyment of the culture and the Venetian art of the last millennium. Let’s see what we can discover about these places…


Fairs and events

Cavallino, as it puts down its own roots in the history and the tradition of Venice, it is a town centre with a lively folkloristic activity. Let’s see in a chronological order which are the main events of this place.


Sparasea Fair

Sparasea Fair

May 1st. Officially established in 1970, this country festival comes in the same day of the workers’ fair, but it means much more in Cavallino. It is the day when the town gathers in the public square of Cavallino to taste the local asparagus with firm eggs. All this is surrounded by traditional music, dances, fireworks and amusements.


Palio Remiero

Palio Remiero

In the week of the Pentecost. This event, recently established, has found an enormous happening in our coasts. It is a real competition between the twelve ‘contradas’ (little quarters) which challenge each other in many regattas with the Venetian row along Pordelio, the channel of the lagoon, which coasts the shore in all its length.


The Savior

The Savior

3rd Saturday of July. This ancient Venetian fair resounds even all along the coasts where you can easily find parties in the houses of countrymen and in the public square. But most of all you cannot forget the fireworks display, one of the best in Italy.


Festival of the Madonna del Carmine

Festival of the Madonna del Carmine

3rd Sunday of July. The day after the Savior, the age-old procession of the wooden statue of the Madonna del Carmine made in the 6th century is celebrated in the little church built in the 5th century in the ‘Prà of Saccagnana’ where a Saint Mass is celebrated. This festival is also called “Sagra della Sucheta” (dialect term to point out the yellow plums), a very appreciated fruit gived out to the guests during the folk dance on the farmyard in the evening when staying toghether is an unavoidable cry.


Alba Chiara

Albachiara

Sunday, 19 august. The magic of music meets with the breath-taking atmosphere of dawn on the beach, with the first rays of sun illuminating the calm sea. The third edition of the concert on the sea at sunrise starts at 5 a.m., at La Duna in Cavallino.


Feast of the Assumption

Feast of the Assumption

August 15th. Feast of ancient establishement in the whole Italy, it is celebrated by the Junior Hotel with a special lunch enriched by a refined menu, and in the evening we celebrate with all our guests in our Hotel with music alive and batheing at midnight in our swimming pool.


Beach on fire

Beach on Fire

Last ten days of August. This event, recently established, has as its leading actor all the coastline from where, in ten different places, the longest fireworks of the world are shooted. 12 kilometers of beach are illuminated by a pyrotechnic and unforgettable display that you can see even from the coast and for the luckiest even from the sea on the boats.


Regata da Mar

Regata da Mar

First week of September. On the model of Palio Remiero success, a second race of Venetian row has been established, this time it is in the harder waters of the sea rather than in the calmer waters of the lagoon. The tourists can follow this competition from the beach being supporters of the quarter where they are accommodated.


Festival of the Tempeston

Festival of the Tempeston

Last Sunday of August. The celebration of this festivity has been known since 1849, when Venice returned under the Austrian power. In this occasion in Treporti we celebrate the thunderstorm (the so called ‘tempeston’) which in that occasion destroyed the stained glass windows of the church and the harvests of the fields.


El Paviner

El Paviner

January 5th. Fair of pagan origin which comes in the eve of Epiphany, the witch’s fire on tall wood poles decorated with funny flying Epiphanies, it matches with “vin brulé” (spiced red hot wine) for the adults and stockings filled with sweets for the children.



Open-air markets and local markets.

Our coasts house two daily markets which take place every Tuesday morning in the market place of Cavallino and on Thursday mornings in the public square of Treporti. Moreover, in the summer period, from May to September, the public square of Cavallino houses every Friday evening a local market with objects of antique dealing and some oddity.

The route by bicycle

For those who doesn’t want just to relax and bathsun, but also to take the occasion to keep fit, Cavallino offers the possibility to practice a big variety of outdoor sports. There are many tennis-courts that you can reserve at our Hotel’s direction, moreover you can easily reach golf-courses of the Lido of Venice, famous for being one of the first golf-course in Italy, or the more modern one of Jesolo Lido. For those who love water, instead, many well equipped centres are scattered all along the shore and they give the opportunity to practice sports like windsurfing, canoe and for the laziest ones pedalos renting; the most fanatic ones have the opportunity to take some lessons of Venetian row, unique in kind. You should take into consideration even the riding schools, which give you the opportunity to carry out a horse trip in the fields close by the lagoon on demand. Easily reachable from the Hotel there are even some centres for bowshotting, pitch and putt and table tennis. Last, but not least, is bluff fishing and underwater excursions organised by a specialized centre.

Cinema exhibition

Cinema exhibition

As many people already know, the city of Venice houses the historical Biennal cinema exhibition since more than sixty years. This comes every year during the first ten days of September in the near Lido of Venice, easily reacheable by means of many connections by water, one every half an hour. You can see unpublished movies and you even have the possibility to make strange meetings



Cucina Veneta

The cuisine

Although it has been very simple for a long time as the tradition suggests, the Venetian cuisine has found in its dishes of fish its maximum expression. What else could be more unusual than a supper while taking a tour in the inns of the coast or going around the ‘calle’ (narrow streets) in Venice tasting as an appetizer the red ‘Spritz’, proceeding then with the “nips” made up of fish accompanied by a good Venetian ‘prosecco’ (white sparkling wine)? You cannot even lose razor-shells, little polyps with filling, pickled and ‘in “saor”’ anchovies, fried mixed fish, whipped dried cod and much more. You can ask our reception and we will be glad to suggest you some specific tours in Venice. You cannot even lose the various farm holidays scattered in the surroundings of the lagoon. They are easily reacheable even by bicycle and they can even offer a low priced good lunch and a panoramic sight on the lagoon of Venice.
