Welcome to Casa Alma
This newly renovated, elegant ground & first floor apartment is part of a converted glass factory. Situated in a central but quiet district just outside the walls of the Arsenale, Casa Alma is ideal flat for visitors to the Venice Biennale. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the apartment sleeps up to 5 people. Minimum stay is 3 nights.
The entrance opens into a double-height kitchen & living area open to the roof beams above. Traditional single pieces of décor such as Murano glass wall-lights, the Venetian Ottoman, engraved mirrors and the Terrazzo floor, contrast with the contemporary kitchen, modern appliances, paintings and photos.
Light from large industrial windows illuminates the downstairs master bedroom, with its adjoining mosaic-tiled bathroom. Upstairs, a more intimate roof-lit twin bedroom has the luxury of a relaxing bath in its own en-suite in the rafters.
The flat is ideal for families, friends and couples visiting Venice, or for longer stays by researchers, academics and professionals. The space is designed to be flexible and can accommodate many different needs. Children are welcome, dogs are allowed, but the flat is definitely no smoking.
“Lovely apartment. The ambience exudes taste, peace, comfort and culture. One of the finest mattresses we’ve ever slept on!
We will return.”
Anne and David
“Casa Alma was a perfect place to stay. The apartment is wonderfully decorated, fully furnished and very luminous. The beds were comfortable and we had more than enough space for 2 adults + 3 teens. Castello is very quiet, so no trouble sleeping at night. It’s an area still full of Venetian and very few tourists.
Marika and her mother were perfect hosts and answered every text message during our stay. We’d definitely book this place again on another trip to Venice. Grazie mille Marika! Ciao!”
Jean Olivier Nadeau, Senior Architect
“Nestled under the wall of the Arsenale, casa Alma, was the perfect place to stay for a visit to the Biennale.
If you’re reading this we have left the building.
If not, then we have stayed, which is what we really want to do.”

“Thank you for sharing this exceptional house with us – it fitted our circumstances perfectly.
The artworks are wonderful and make all the difference from staying in other holiday homes with the standard prints on the walls.”
“It was the entire ‘package’ that was perfect: the warm welcome, the super information on events
and restaurants, the cleanliness, quietness, easy access, flexibility around check-in …
I could go on raving about this place!”
Christiane Sattler & Family
Had a wonderful stay. The apartment is great.

“We spent some wonderful days in the apartment (and of course in Venice) in a lovely neighbourhood, with lots of tourists stranded in this dead-end lane!”
Heinz, Renate, Saskia and Hannah
Beautiful, well-equipped, and spotlessly clean apartment in a peaceful, charming part of Venice. Marika was a wonderful host, helping to find me when I got lost on arrival and responding to enquiries very quickly. Highly recommended.

“A splendid apartment in a peaceful location, lovely airy rooms beautifully decorated. Everything you need to cook, relax and sleep near the sights in Venice with a sunny back alley for alfresco dining.

“Casa Alma was a fantastic place, I’m glad we enjoyed our short stay here in Venice. Wish we could have stayed longer. We really appreciated the upgraded, well renovated Casa. We have stayed at many different Airbnbs and this was by far the nicest place.
Thanks for making us feel at home and welcoming us.”
“El departamento tiene el tamaño justo. Las camas excelentes y a pesar de estar en verano y de las altas temperaturas… se mantenía fresco al fin del día. Los baños también perfectos para una familia de 5 personas. Muy cómodo y decorado precioso. Si vamos nuevamente a Venecia nos encantaría volver a Casa Alma.”

“Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. It was perfect for us and our three boys. We had a great new year and wouldn’t hesitate to return. Thank you for the wine.”
Michelle, Evan, Ollie, Sam and Bryn
“We had an amazing time at your lovely home. The location was perfect, not just for the art but for the whole of Venice. Rest assured, we will be back.” 🙂

“Ein Apartment mit persönlicher Handschrift, einem wunderbar hohen Raum in sehr ruhiger Umgebung- idealer Rückzugsort für einen Aufenthalt in Venedig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.”
“Hemos pasado 3 días en Venecia en Casa Alma y la estancia ha sido maravillosa. La zona donde esta ubicado es muy tranquila y se encuentra a 5-10 minutos andando de la plaza de San Marco y el centro turístico. Sin duda fue un acierto reservar este apartamento.”
Javi Rodriguez Alacreu
“L’appartamento è comodissimo per la Biennale e anche vicino a Piazza San Marco, ma lontano dalle folle dei turisti. Marika è una padrona di casa attenta e sollecita. Insomma, siamo stati benissimo!”
“Wow, what an apartment! We loved the Memphis-style decoration with Venetian touch. The great location in busy and crowded Venice was a big plus.”
Rayna, Richard and Asja
“Marika left flowers, wine, and sparkling water to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary. Her mum showed us all around the apartment and gave great suggestions for restaurants and off-the-beaten-path sights.”
“Thank you very much for your beautiful apartment. Our family of five was very happy to stay here. Very well equipped, very comfortable, cosy and very well located … perfect!”
