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 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.”

  • 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.”

  • 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!”

  • 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!!!”

  • Everything we could need or want …

  • 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.”

  • Insomma, siamo stati benissimo!

    “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!”

  • 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”.
