Casa Bianca al Mare (VE) — Veneto Secrets

On the Jesolo seafront, Casa Bianca al Mare dresses up for summer with a new super chic "white beach", an exclusive terrace-solarium on the rooftop with double jacuzzi and a sophisticated interior and exterior restyling to pamper its guests in lounges, bookshops and a pool bar perfect for an aperitif.

With its authentic style reminiscent of the Belle Époque and sober elegance, all played on shades of white and blue, Casa Bianca al Mare is a real jewel set between the sea and the centuries-old trees that surround it. With 37 rooms, of which 30 are suites and junior suites, from this year the boutique hotel offers a renovated and expanded beach and, upon reservation, an exclusive sea-view sun terrace complete with jacuzzi pools (both open also to external guests).

Chosen as a film set by the greatest Italian directors such as Pietro Germi, for his famous Signore e Signori, and by Massimo D’Alatri, for his comedy Americano Rosso, many artists and personalities from the international jet set stayed at Casa Bianca including Mina, Domenico Modugno and the Rolling Stones who have even recorded some songs right here. However, the presence that most attracted fame and the elites to the boutique hotel was Gabriele D’Annunzio who loved to stay here, surrounded by the most illustrious personalities of those years.

Casa Bianca has always been every hotel owner’s dream, the Roll’s Royce of hotels. Dad would be proud to know that now it is part of our Group.

(Daniel Menazza, owner)

Built in 1923, Casa Bianca has recently been restored, thanks to a partnership between the entrepreneur Mario Moretti Polegato and the historic family of local hoteliers Menazza. The renovations and restyling of the interiors, together with the design of the gourmet restaurant Amarmio, have been entrusted to the architect Rosario Picciotto of the RPC8 studio in Rome.

Its uniqueness is already noticeable upon entering the splendid Liberty-style hall with its stunning twin arched exits, one looking towards the park and the other toward the beach.

The precious sofa at the center of the room was created by the fashion designer Kenzo, a dear friend of the Polegato family, together with various design objects that belonged to his private home. On the walls, you can also admire the sketches of some clothes also designed by the Japanese artist.

The panoramic déhor, where the private swimming pool is located, houses a statue of the famous artist Igor Mitoraj that gazes placidly towards the sea. The restyling of the rooms reinterprets the romantic atmospheres of the original interiors with lampshades that embellish the bedside tables, precious natural fabrics for the upholstery, and a color palette inspired by marine atmospheres.

Amarmio, the gourmet restaurant of Casa Bianca is located in the beautiful terrace overlooking the beach. Designed by creating a sophisticated bioclimatic pergola with retractable windows, it offers an environment full of natural light and suggestions which make it very romantic at dinner time.

Led by chef Alessio Rigon, it follows a philosophy based on local excellences, such as Adriatic fish, and the absolute freshness of the products. Traditional recipes, such as fried sardines breaded with corn pan, fried fish or the famous risotto Amarmio are flanked by contemporary dishes with impeccable cooking where the flavor of the seasonal products remains the protagonist.

Always on the menu, you can also find the fabulous raw fish selections, including fresh oysters like the French classics Gillardeau and Royale, the Irish Gran Cru Regal Oro and the Italian Gran Cru Perla del Delta.

The wine list, is original and refined, preferring small producers as well as excellent labels preserved in the brand new design cellar located under the restaurant.

The delightful blue wooden boxes that contain the cutlery, which have already become a sought-after collectible for customers, are handcrafted and personalized with verses of poems and songs that tell us the soul of this very special place.

Today Casa Bianca al Mare is the only example of historic architecture which stands out with its timeless charm making us dream like a fairytale castle on the sea.

The Secret

The history of the Menazza family has always been linked to Casa Bianca; in fact, in the 1940s, Daniel’s grandmother was working there. When the family bought the Colombo Hotel, located just behind it, his father used to show his family this beautiful building, dreaming one day of being able to manage it.
