THE GUEST HOUSE
"Cvl Ciavalini" whose full name is "Casa Vacanze Luisa Ciavalini" is a small guest house dedicated to Donna Tittina, my mother. The property has an unique and unmistakable style due to its strong personality that make it radically different from any other place you may have seen or experienced. Cvl Ciavalini is a water's edge guest house. The rooms are on the first floor in a 1948 house externally inconspicuous, but with interiors of great architectural value, located in a place with a spectacular view, close to a beach that has been declared a natural reserve, free and sandy with dunes full of vegetation and wild flowers. Here the charm of history is accompanied by the modern comforts.
Our house has been one of the first to host a traveller...since 1952. It has hosted families, couples and above all, artists of all kinds who have sought and found inspiration here. The history, the experience, the tradition of generations in hospitality (we are the fourth generation) give the place an inconfondible magic aura that has very few equals and that is unanimously recognized by guests, patrons, visitors of all kinds who consider this house a natural cenacle.
Over the years, the press has dedicated us articles, just because of the aura that surrounds this place. You can find these articles by googling 'Cvl Circolo della Granita'. Even if the most important tributes are those left by the beautiful people we have met, that has left us letters and poems.
THE 'Circolo della Granita'
The 'Circolo della Granita' is 'the other' face of Cvl Ciavalini. Circolo della granita is the little garden of the house in which there is a small old style bar where among forgotten flowers and scents, we serve cocktails, savarìn, creamy slushes, italian ice creams and many other special products, which has made us a 'destination for good desserts'. The bar of Circolo della Granita is also available to our guests. Guests who do not want to prepare their breakfast in their own kitchen in their suite, can ask to us to have breakfast at the bar of the Circolo della Granita in a very nice setting every morning.
Our location is very evocative, it looks like a movie of the 60s, where at any moment you would expect to see a young Gina Lollobrigida with all her entourage, and where our guests between drinks and out of the common dessert, can also feel theirselves 'VIPs of old times'. Background music will accompany every moment of your stay to make memorable your experience. The location is substantially 'hidden', as it is accessible by a small pedestrian under rail tunnel and subsequent little path, this feature make it the perfect location for a romantic mushroom, for couples in love of all kinds and sexual orientation, also LBGT, as here there are no differences between the persons and everyone can be him/herself as he/her wants. Location is suitable for travelers with a poetic soul in search of artistic inspiration, and a contact with the nature of the sea, people who are still looking for a REAL experience or simply for themselves.
ROOMS / SUITE FEATURES
Bathroom in the room, independent and not shared kitchen, well equipped and with comfortable cooking area, bedroom with double bed and balcony. Freedom to cook independently, freedom to return at any time you want even during the night. All the 'rooms' have direct exit to the beach, as the beach is just outside the home's gate. The suites are equipped with a washing machine and LED TV (one of the suites is equipped with a small home-cinema room, Wifi, music in the room (multichannel stereo music system), cold / hot air conditioning system, beach umbrella and deck chairs, bedding and towels.

We love sharing our place with people with a poetic soul, especially couples, lovers, people able to fully appreciate it. Our goal is not to have the full booking, but to get in touch with people able to appreciate the poetry of this house, like saying 'few guests, good guests'.
EVENTS OF THE HOUSE
During the summer we usually organize two evenings in which we set an outdoor cinema in the garden, by playing one of the classic romantic movies and serving appetizers and wines during the vision. Sometimes in the summer afternoons we have also local artists that play background guitar music to accompain yor drinks, your cocktails. Sometimes in the summer's evening we also organize local food and wine appetizing accompanied by local classic voices that sing classic songs of the Italian music, all in an extremely subdued tone and never screamed, because our goal is to create the right atmosphere for the guests.
