A JESOLAN FAMILY

Since 1962 the Fregonese family has been active in the holiday sector in Lido di Jesolo and welcoming guests to their hotels is now a long tradition that has been handed down from generation to generation.

In 1984 a new adventure began with the Ruhl Beach Hotel, which from a simple 3-star hotel with just over 40 rooms was developed and enriched with the construction of a swimming pool and whirlpool, and the creation of splendid, spacious suites on the 5th floor.

Constant renovation work over the years has enabled the Ruhl Beach Hotel & Suites to acquire the rank of 3 Star Superior in 2022.

Always alert to changes in the industry and anticipating guests’ needs, the family has managed to reconcile tradition with modernity without neglecting respect for nature and the environment.

history of Jesolo

It was founded as a small Roman village under the dependency of Altino with the name “Equilio”, due to the horse breeding in the area.

It was a strategic place for Venice’s trade in the mainland and was established as a municipality by Napoleon I on 22.12.1807 with the name “Cavazuccherina”, becoming Jesolo only in 1930 by Royal Decree of the then King Vittorio Emanuele III.

At the beginning of the 20th century the Jesolo area underwent major reclamation works that made it fruitful for the birth of tourism.

Jesolo, scarred by both Great Wars, first found itself on the defensive line created by the Italian army to stop the Austro-Hungarian advance towards Venice, and then from 1943 to 1945 it was occupied by German troops. Remains of forts and trenches can still be found in several places along the coastline and inland.

Another event proved this city’s ability to re-emerge: the 1966 flood.

The waters came to submerge large areas of Jesolo Paese and Lido, including the one where the TERMINI Beach Hotel & Suites stands, which was built a few years ago and was engulfed by the sea water, which swelled for days and risked collapsing. Indelible moments printed in the minds of those who lived through those days.

Jesolo soon recovered and experienced the years of the economic-tourist boom, becoming a popular destination for celebrities from the worlds of entertainment and sport.

The nineties saw the birth of a major redevelopment project for the Jesolo area signed by a world-famous Japanese architect, Kenzo Tange.
Hence the turn in an ultra-modern direction for Jesolo’s image and functionality.

Once upon a time there was a village, a deserted beach, a natural paradise on which the waves of the Adriatic Sea washed over. Now there is an avant-garde City, with skyscrapers reflecting the sky, full of colour and light, but whose soul still remains that unique sea and golden sand.

Jesolo, a City in nature.
