Il Cantiere Navale was originally a shipping yard founded in 1946 and prestigiously founded by a noble count, but today is a splendid holiday centre with something for all the family. The apartments are nestled between the sand dunes and pines trees with the eye-catching main building and swimming pool being the centre piece of this beach front complex.
Il Cantiere has now been transformed into a beautiful holiday resort. The old buildings have been torn down, and instead comfortable apartments have been built. The main building with its distinctive semi-circular roof is surrounded by 8 buildings with 176 apartments and rooms, all surrounded by sand dunes, tall pine trees and greenery. Here is really is just a stone's throw from the beach, which is considered one of the safest swimming beaches in Italy. This is because of its gentle slopping gradient, which perfect for children of all ages.
