Ca’Adelaide is a charming 17 th century Country House, listed among the “Ville Venete” and located one hour away from Venice, Ferrara, Ravenna, Padova, Rovigo, the Brenta Riviera and the Euganian Hills, in the very heart of the Po Delta Nature Reserve.One of Villa Adele most famous visitors, was Lord Byron, the great English poet, who was then very much in love with the beautiful and young Contessa Teresa Gamba, married to Alessandro Guiccioli, who was almost 40 years older than her!
In the hope of distracting his young and impetuous wife from the frivolous social life in Venice, Alessandro sent Teresa to Villa Adele, where she was to conduct a more solitary and sober life. But this was no use: the love affair between Teresa and Lord Byron had already begun in Venice, and the two young people, certainly not discouraged, used to meet secretly in Villa Adele!
