Living like a real Venetian at Altana Albachiara is the ideal way to visit Venice and enjoy the city. Staying in a private house, unlike an hotel, makes you share people's life and gives you the possibility to feel a local, more than one of the million tourists!... However it also requires that you follow some little rules. Please…
-The top roof wooden terrace, the so called Altana, is at your complete disposal for relaxing and tasty moments surrounded as you will be from the special Venitian atmosphere. As whether often changes in Venice and it’s located in a very high position, please always remember not to leave the outside window of the Altana open while you go out visiting the city and nothing left outside without your presence because it might be very dangerous.
-If you wish there’s a free wifi connection called ‘casa mia’, you'll be provided with the access code at your arrival.
-Air conditioning and heating are included in the price and self-regulating. Please switch them off when you are out.
-On departure day the rooms should be left within 10 am. Other arrangements can be taken also upon arrival. Feel free to ask for the easier directions to the airport, the train station and the parking areas, I will be pleased to give you all the information you need for a relaxed stay!
-Do not be too noisy. Building rules must be observed and between 1 pm and 3 pm and 11 pm and 8 am nobody should make any loud noise.
-Do not smoke in the bedrooms and the rest of the house a part for the kitchen and the terrace.
-Pets are not allowed.
-The City of Venice asks for a tourist tax helping to improve the municipality services to be paid on their hand from Guests to owner of hotels, b&b and holiday houses the cost of which is 2 euro per person per night (only first 5 nights).
I’m always willingly at your disposal for any request, information or wish (reservations, restaurants, museums, taxis, etc) throughout all your stay and before, I'm looking forward to greet you personally! :-)
Arrivederci in Venezia!
Great location. The apartment is just as advertised and our host was kind and helpful throughout our trip. I would stay here again. One if the best parts: the private rooftop terrace. Beautiful.
Appartment is just magical! The location is ideal! inside the apartment itself is very beautiful. everything you need, you might need, all in an apartment there. this apartment is a unique opportunity to feel like a local resident. I stayed in love with this apartment and terrace.
Tout d'abord merci à Chiara pour sa grande disponibilité et sa gentillesse. Grace à elle, notre séjour d'une semaine fut plus qu'une simple location, mais tout simplement une très belle expérience ! Avant le séjour, Chiara a répondu très rapidement à chaque message et questions que nous lui posions. Les informations qu'elle nous a données pour nous rendre à l'appartement furent très utiles. A notre sortie du Vaporetto, elle nous attendait pour nous mener à l'appartement, puis nous a donné de très précieux conseils sur les visites à faire et les restaurants dans différents quartiers.
L'appartement est tout simplement idéalement situé en plein cœur de Venise, pour se déplacer à pied ou prendre les nombreux vaporetti. Il est grand, fonctionnel, très propre, en quelques minutes l'on s'y sent chez soi.
Et puis... Il y a la terrasse. Nous n'avons pas été déçus par rapport aux belles photos de la présentation ! Une typique altana vénitienne. Quelle merveille d'y prendre le petit déjeuner, l'apéritif, le diner, d'admirer Venise vibrer sous nos yeux le long du grand canal...
Encore merci Chiara, nous avons passé un très beau séjour à Venise et nous recommandons vivement ton appartement !

Ciara was a wonderful host! Me and my family felt very comfortable and well taken care of; the apartment was equipped with all the necessarry appliances and resources, including plenty of books on Venice and Italy, advice on places to see and restaurants to try. Subjectively, my favorite part of the experience was enjoying the terrace with spectacular views of the Venice skyline. Another highlight was to get fresh produce directly from the market across the Rialto bridge and prepare it in the kitchen for a home-cooked meal. Me and my family would certainly recommend Chiara's apartment for that extra experience!
Nous avons passé 4 jours à Venise, dans un lieu sublime et époustouflant. La vue depuis les terrasses sur les toits de Venise est éblouissante. L'appartement est magnifique et les chambres spacieuses.
Chiara est une hôte extrêmement charmante et disponible avec des conseils avisés.
Nous recommandons vivement ce logement et espérons revenir.
We spent 3 nights at Chiara’s lovely, large apartment with the amazing roof top terraces (yes there are two of them, both facing in different directions). Chiara was an outstanding host. When we arrived, there was everything we needed to make breakfast each day of our trip (cereal, milk, juice, fruit, bread, coffee). Chiara even stocked the refrigerator with beer for us – if you ask me, that’s a GREAT host!
There are over 90 stairs to get up to the apartment, but as Chiara said as we climbed them with our luggage, “it’s worth it at the top” and she was right! The views from the windows of the apartment face out onto other apartments, but it is the views from the roof top terraces that put this place over the top. The views of the Rialto Bridge from the terraces is breathtaking and we enjoyed having breakfast up there every morning. You definitely want to double check that you have everything when you leave to sightsee every day, since you won’t want to be making the climb up to the apartment any more than you need to….
If you’ve never been to Venice before, the apartment is centrally located, but because it is centrally located, it is touristy and can be noisy on certain nights.
Chiara did everything you could wish to make our stay in Venice memorable. As mentioned, she is an outstanding host and communications with her were always quick and very pleasant.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement plein de charme de Chiara, vaste et bien équipé. Chiara a tout prévu : thé, café, huile , fruits, petit déjeuner....Elle a un grand sens de l'hospitalité, elle nous a donné de bonnes adresses à Venise, elle est très disponible et prête à rendre service.Nous avons bien apprécié les terrasses avec vue panoramique sur le grand canal , le pont du Rialto. et les campaniles des églises.
Merci Chiara, si nous revenons à Venise, nous viendrons chez vous et nous conseillerons cet appartement à nos amis.
Corine et Guy
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 recently 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.
I'm looking forward to welcome you at Altana Albachiara... Arrivederci a Venezia!!!!
