Ca Maria Adele 

A romantic little idyll

This tiny 12-room historic residence sits in the heart of Venice’s modern art district.

In artsy Dorsoduro – home of the Peggy Guggenheim collection and the floating gallery of Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova – this renovated 16th-century palazzo sits behind the famous domed church of Santa Maria della Salute. Just a short hop on a vaporetto to the lively crowds of St Mark’s Square, this tiny residence is exceptionally exclusive, hidden in one of Venice’s most tranquil quarters. Set just off the famous Grand Canal, a private water entrance masterfully hides this grown-up boutique bolthole from any prying eyes.

Why we love Ca Maria Adele

  • With its decadently eclectic and indulgently detail-rich décor, this intimate retreat is one of Venice’s most romantic hotels

  • This award-winning boutique property has just 12 rooms, so it almost feels like a (particularly luxurious) home from home

  • It offers the best of both worlds as it’s tucked away in tranquil Dorsoduro but only one vaporetto stop from St Mark’s Square

  • It’s set in a beautiful 16th-century palazzo, sensitively restored and bursting with history, just off the Grand Canal
