Ai Cadelach (TV) — Veneto Secrets

Ai Cadelach is a country chic wellness resort between the Revine Lakes and the Vittorio Veneto hills where you can make every wish come true: a horseback ride, a gourmet break or a massage "under the moon".

Ai Cadelach is a magnificent eco-resort surrounded by nature that offers, in a delightful rustic style, a gourmet restaurant, a wellness center, an outdoor swimming pool and a sporting club with riding stables where you can take refuge for a special treat.

Born in the 70s from the experience of Sergio and Giulia Grava, its founders, Ai Cadelach reveals in its name the splendid position that characterizes it. In fact, it is located “at the head” of the suggestive lake of Revine, an ideal location for a relaxing break surrounded by a generous nature.

Their sons Ezio, maître sommelier, and Ennio, grill master, together with his wife Natascia, today manage the structure, which presents itself with all the charm of mountain architecture with typical gray stone exteriors and gabled roofs.

The two restaurants – the Baracheta and the Magnader – offer different solutions depending on the season: the former, open from May to September, it is a romantic wood construction equipped with a charming kitchen for show-cooking, while the latter is a typical rustic Venetian eatery with a huge fireplace and wooden tables.

The dishes are typical of the area with a modern twist – from beef tartare to homemade pasta with duck sauce and mint scent – where everything is handmade with genuine and natural ingredients. The chef Ennio is, in fact, very careful in the research of raw materials. The structure also includes a well-stocked wine cellar, La Caneva di Ezio, where more than a thousand labels from all over the world are kept, including the most prestigious Italian labels such as Sassicaia, Massetto, Miani and Clerico.

Before or after a gourmet break, you can relax in the beautiful spa, also boasting a rustic soul with the characteristic decorations with mangers and hay. Upon request, massages can also be organized outdoors or, for a truly special experience, under the moonlight.

The resort’s offer is completed by the 30 rooms of the “widespread hotel”, among which the 8 deluxe Il bosco del Cadelach stand out, just restored with ecological materials; each of one dedicated to a local plant, which offer a multi-path inside sensory, and the ecosuite L’ontano, a minimal luxury suite enclosed in an eco-sustainable shell immersed in the clearing facing the pool.

From Ennio and Natascia’s love for horses, the Agri Gallop Farm was also born, offering a beautiful riding stable where horses and ponies are available for walks, lessons and educational play activities for children aged 3 and over.

The novelty of the year is the opening of the Nonno Gigi hut, named after Natascia’s father. A fascinating luxury structure on the Lama del Careser that offers up to six beds, where you can stay for an immersive experience in nature or organize a special lunch or dinner. La Baita, made even more special by a double breathtaking view of Venice and the Dolomites, has all the comforts for a relaxing stay, including a helicopter landing path.

The Secret

Starting from Cadelach you can take a beautiful walk along the banks of the two Revine lakes and visit the Livelet archaeological park where the pile dwellings, that characterized the area during the Neolithic era, have been reconstructed. There is an intriguing legend about this area: it’s about the train lying at the bottom of the lake. In the area, in fact, during the First World War, the Austro-Hungarian army built the Decauville-Revine-Vergoman railway line to transport food and ammunition. The local elders say that, at the end of the conflict, during the withdrawal of the troops, the Germans or the Italians sank the train in the lake. Today, in the dry season, you can still see the old railway tracks emerging from the lake’s water, near the wooden bridge, in Fratta di Tarzo.
