Ciao! I'm Chiara, a native Venitian and I love my city and will happy to share with you its secrets, the best itineries and places to visit, restaurants, and more!
Altana Albachiara is so called for the bright sunrises over Venice that you can watch from here: this special name describes how beloved it was by me when it used to be my primary house before I moved and started renting it as a really special home in a special location for special guests, of who I will take care of hoping they will enjoy it as much as I did.
Bollicine Sparkling Apartment is the other sweet home away from home that I rent in the residential yet central San Polo district, always treated with love as it is the place where I lived with my family in the last years.
Incredibile Romantica is the latest added apartment of my property next to San Polo Square: restored in 2016 making a special effort to keep the original features such as the typical Venitian terrazzo floors and the authentic exposed beams and providing the highest standards and all modern facilities for an enjoyable stay.
I'm looking forward to welcome you... Arrivederci a Venezia!!!!
