With 32 campsites immersed in a beautiful pine forest and with over 6 million visitors every year, Cavallino Treporti is one of Europe's leading outdoor tourist destinations.
The resort is located mid-way down the Venice peninsula. Its ecosystem, much loved by tourists from around the world consists of natural sand dunes and a vast pine forest, with the Venice Lagoon running along the peninsula for several kilometres.
It is within this context that, in the mid-1980s, the Villaggio San Paolo, managed by the Diocese of Belluno, began the radical transformation of the children's Colonia Marina (Summer Camp), extending it to create a family resort, specially adapted to welcome disabled visitors.
All of this was achieved by means of innovative architectural designs for improved access and inclusivity, in anticipation of legislation on the removal of architectural barriers that was introduced in 1989. The pioneering facilities have since been the subject of promotion by the European Community, with numerous visits by sector operators from various countries.
Beach and water access is enabled by wooden walkways and roll-out pathways, including special sand chairs.
This model of inclusivity continues to form the basis of the evolution in the management of the Villaggio San Paolo.
