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 Apartment

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.

  • Casa Alma was a fantastic place …

    “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.”

    The artworks are wonderful and make all the difference from staying in other holiday homes with the standard prints on the walls.”

  • We all loved being at Casa Alma …

    “We all loved being at Casa Alma – tucked away in a residential non-tourist part of the city, with real shops to hand, and very friendly neighbours. The added bonus was having all mod cons; great bathrooms that worked perfectly, comfortable beds … and air conditioning. Being able to sit out in Calle Celsi of an evening was also a great bonus”.

  • Las camas excelentes

    “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.”

  • The perfect place to stay …

    “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.”

  • Everything we could need or want …

  • … a perfect place to stay

    “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

  • Elegant and cosy …

    “It might be strange … but we will write in Italian 🙂

    Abbiamo ‘trovato’ Casa Alma, dopo un’accurata ricerca,già avvezzi a Venezia … ci siamo immaginati subito, attraverso il monitor PC, un’atmosfera elegante e al contempo accogliente … un pizzico di ‘mitteleuropa’ nel più bello, nel preferito sestiere de Castelo …
    E tutto si è confermato qui! Un caldo torrido, insopportabile anche per noi che veniamo dal sud … una Biennale noiosa, discutibile …
    ma grazie a Casa Alma ne è valsa la pena … alla prossima!!!”

    Great places to eat & drink within walking distance.

    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.
