In addition to pleasant relaxation by the sea, a vacation or a weekend in Eraclea Mare at the Hotel Lory is an occasion to visit historic villages with ancient origins like Portogruaro and Concordia Saggitaria, the fascinating Summaga Abbey, the Caorle lagoon where Hemingway loved to hunt, or to follow the DOC Wine Road of Lison Pramaggiore and visit the wine cellars to discover traditional tastes and products. Or to spend a day with the kids in Jesolo at Aqualandia, a water park with a Caribbean atmosphere and setting and the highest water slide in the world: 42 meters high and a descent at 100 km/h.
In the summer, the Hotel Lory is one of the most appreciated 3-star hotels ofEraclea. It has easy access to the beach and regenerating walks (or bike rides), and activities along the "percorso vita" (exercise trail) in the pine forest. There are also nature walks on foot or bicycle to Laguna del Mort, the small marine lagoon and nature preserve with so many species of birds, fish and mollusks that is quickly reached from the hotel, as well as other itineraries to discover the characteristic landscapes of the lagoon valleys and rivers around Eraclea (along the paths that follow the seashore of the litoranea Veneta, the fascinating waterway that connects Eraclea to the towns of the hinterland). For those who also want to stay in shape while vacationing in a hotel in Eraclea Mare, near the Hotel Lory (just a 5-minute walk) there are tennis courts, horseback riding stables and golf courses (in Duna Verde, 7 km away, and in Jesolo, 12 km away). There are a wealth of sports activities organized on the beach: aerobics and aquagym lessons, five-a-side soccer and beach volley tournaments, baby club and entertainment for the little ones, while at the Eraclea pier, 500 meters from the Hotel Lory, there are sailing lessons for both adults and children. And, of course, there are the inevitable pedal boat rentals on the beach in front of the hotel.
Among the hotels of Eraclea Mare, the Hotel Lory is the ideal solution for a weekend spent discovering the historic villages and artistic cities of the Veneto such as Caorle (10 km away), with its lovely Romanesque church and original circular bell tower, Concordia Saggitaria and Portogruaro, of Roman origin with lovely Medieval centers and the thousand-year-old Summaga Abbey (35 km) and Altino, where you can tour the Museo Nazionale Archeologico; Treviso, a delightful city of water and the incomparable Venice, both 50 km from Eraclea. You can reach Venice by land (by car, train or bus) or water on a pleasant mini-cruise on-board motorships that depart from Caorle and Jesolo; while, in the winter, the motorships leave from Punta Sabbioni
Would you like to see the canals, casoni and valleys where Hemingway was inspired to write his famous novel Across the River and into the Trees? Nothing better than being on a boat as the writer used to do over the canals of Eraclea Mare, arriving at the striking San Gaetano Village (where Hemingway stayed, guest to the Baron of Franchetti) and the Laguna di Caorle. Both Spring and Fall are the best seasons for itineraries between the canals and the lagoon: magical lights reflect between the water, sky and reeds; herons, egrets, coots and gulls take flight, while the casoni (typical fisher huts), still used by fishers and hunters, can be glimpsed on the banks. The itinerary starts from the Eraclea Mare wet dock, going down the Piave River and then reaching the canals that, along Venice's Litoranea (water ways) finally arrive to the Caorle Lagoon. If you are coming on your own boat or dinghy, you can wet it at the Eraclea Mare dock, 300 meters from the Lory Hotel, and leave the trailer in the hotel's parking. Or you can rent a boat for one or more days directly at the dock. Ivan at the hotel will give you nautical charts with itineraries, distances, docks, places of interest and navigation times. During your stay, we offer all navigators a lunch basket with sandwiches and soft drinks for a great picnic!
Did you know that Eraclea Mare has a beautiful pine forest where you can bike in all relaxation? Did you know that in Eraclea Mare there is the Laguna del Mort, a small marine lagoon unique in its kind, where you can boat and see its special natural beauty? Did you know that in Eraclea Mare white roads go deep into the heart of the countryside along the canals of the great land reclamation of the 1920s, where you can bike undisturbed and where there are only herons, marsh harriers and buzzards, and where silence reigns? Did you know that water scoopers, typical of the elegant architecture of the early 1900s, are still there are in perfect working order? No? Spring and Fall are the ideal seasons for a bike tour to discover the suggestive scenery between the sea, the lagoon and the country. If you come with your bike, we have a locked place where you can leave it. Instead, you can use the hotel's bicycles (city bikes, ideal to ride in Eraclea), or behind the hotel there is a place that rents both mountain and city bikes. On arrival ask for your itineraries; Ivan will give you maps with routes, distances in kilometers, roads, places of interest and travel times. During your stay, we offer all navigators a lunch basket with sandwiches and soft drinks for a great picnic!
Here we eat great and drink even better. Why? Because our land and our sea provide bountiful typical products of great quality and originality, thanks to the fertile soil of the land reclamation, the vineyards, many of them ecological, the shallow sea along the coastline, the rocky substrata ('tegnue') and the brackish waters of the lagoon's fishing grounds. Either by bike or by car, you cannot miss coming to Eraclea Mare (at the hotel we will give you maps and itineraries), especially in Spring and Fall, when the country and the sea provide their best bounty. Ivan suggests a visit to the rice fields of Torre di Fine, which produces and directly sells superfine Carnaroli rice of optimum quality, thanks to the sweet water irrigation from Livenza and the salty air of the nearby sea. In Porto Santa Margherita you can buy, also directly, dairy products such as the Montasio DOP, a cheese with milk taste whose flavor increases with aging; you can choose between fresh (two-month aging), medium (aged five to ten months), and aged (over ten months). Get a good bottle of DOC Lison - Pramaggiore, a wine found in most stores in the area and in the historic center of Caorle. They have 500 types of wine, with a section entirely dedicated to Lison Pramaggiore. Here, the expert advice of the owner will help you choose true excellence. Something curious: the zone of Lison - Pramaggiore is where ecological wine production is most extended in Italy. For a wine tasting experience directly at the producer's, Ivan suggests the Mosole cellar in San Stino di Livenza. Honey is a country delicacy; coming to Caorle by the Meridiana route there is a beekeeper that sells directly to consumers. Here, at the land reclamation area, honey is typically from sunflower and rape. You have to taste it! You can easily find the typical fish from the sea, valley and 'tegnue' served at the hotel's restaurant (based on market availability), prepared by Ivan's mother: bass, mullet, sole, flounder, eel, scallops, octopus and much more. Ivan will explain which fish it is!
