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.

  • 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.”

  • Cosy and very well located

    “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!”

  • Casa Alma was perfect for us

    “We felt very relaxed and confortable and cared for at Casa Alma. The apartment is lovely in every way and Castello is great: wonderful crumbling architecture, lots of locals, lovely little squares, shops and bakeries. Cross a bridge however, and you’re in the full flurry of tourism (if you want it). Within spitting distance of the Biennale, Casa Alma was perfect for us.”

  • I could go on raving about this place!

    “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!”

  • Maravillosa

    “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.”

  • Incredibly beautiful and ideally situated flat …

    “We can’t thank you enough Alan, Marika and Karin. This was the perfect place for us to explore Venice – an incredibly beautiful and ideally situated flat. We have loved being here!

    Thanks for all the helpful tips, we sampled all the recommendations for restaurants: Il Covino, Il Bancogiro, Da Jonny and all were fantastic. We don’t want to go home 🙁 but hopefully we will be back.
    Lots of Love.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!!!”

  • Beautiful, well-equipped, and spotlessly clean …

    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.

  • 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.”
