All guests staying at Marina Azzurra Resort may choose to book their houseboat either inside the marina resort, along the banks of river Tagliamento, on the pier, or inside the dry marina, which is on land. Two similar experiences, but at the same time quite different from one another, which can make your vacation a truly special one.
Marina resort is composed of 29 houseboats docked on the pier and of 59 houseboats safely docked along the banks of the river Tagliamento, easily accessible via wharfs made out of exotic wood. The pier is surrounded by a uniquely relaxing natural context, made even more appealing to the eye by the local aquatic plants which cover the pier in lagoon green. Marina resort is the ideal choice for those who wish to spend their vacation in symbiosis with the flow of river Tagliamento, waking up to the gentle sound of waves and filling eyes and souls with the stunning view of the green and blue colours of the lagoon. A spectacle to be enjoyed together with your loved ones, in complete privacy. Let yourself be lulled into sleep by the relaxing, almost imperceptible flow of the waves, moved by the few boats passing by, and from the fresh, regenerating river breeze, which will fill even the most adventurous souls with emotions never felt before.
Dry Marina (from 2021)
Dry marina is made up of 76 houseboats, all docked in the shallows. Dray marina is the ideal choice for those who wish to feel the emotion of living on a houseboat, but at the same time wants to be pampered by the comfort of a chalet, surrounded by tall local trees and all kinds of wild grasses, filling the air with perfumes and good vibrations.
The shape of the houseboats reminds of the typical casoni (fishermen’s huts) of the Friulian and Venetian lagoons. In the past, casoni were used by lagoon fishermen and their families as homes, composed of square wooden structures and sloping roofs covered with reeds and other materials gathered in the wild. Some still exist to this day, mostly belonging to private owners or used as restaurants or inns.
The houseboats in Marina Azzurra have a 6 x 10 m size, they are divided on two floors and can host up to 6 people. The total internal surface amounts to 65 m2, plus 18 m2 balcony. The entrance is located on the main deck, supplied with a 6.50 m2 balcony. On the inside is a small living room with a double convertible couch, one bedroom with king-size bed and wardrobe, one bedroom with twin beds, an ample bathroom with shower box and a closet. A stair leads to the upper deck, where you can find the living area composed of a dining room with kitchenette in glass-ceramics, completely equipped with accessories and dishes. The living area opens to a 12 m2 large balcony covered by an awning, the ideal spot to relax and enjoy your meals in the open, or where you can sunbathe or read a good book. All houseboats are equipped with state-of-the-art technology: sat TV, Wi-Fi, air conditioning and mosquito nets on all windows.
In the dry marina, every houseboat is positioned on a lay-by surrounded by a wide green area, embellished with local flora.
