  • 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.

  • We had a really good time there enjoying the spectacular view over Venince. The fish market and the vegetable market are nearby and it was a pleasure to prepare food in Chiaras well equipped kitchen.
    Her tips were very helpful. Thank you, Chiara.

  • Our experience with Chiara and the AltanaAlbaChiara apartment was outstanding. We stayed at her perfect apartment 4 nights. it is centrally located, very clean, comfortable, spacious, has free Wi-Fi and beautifully decorated. The roof deck is amazig and it is overlooking Venice and the Realto bridge. Chiara was wonderful from beginning to end. From the communication and logistics prior to our arrival, to meeting us at the boat stop, to helping with our luggage, to providing great tips on touring Venice and recommendations for restaurants. The apartment was well stocked for breakfast and lunch with fruits, cake, pasta, bread coffee etc. Chiara was also very accommodating, allowing us to leave our packed bags at the apartment, after checkout time, while we toured Venice . our trip was just perfect and Chiara’s hospitality made it extra special. We all highly recommend her apartment as a great place to experience Venice. Einat @ Boaz

  • This is a fabulous apartment, and Chiara is the most wonderful hostess! We recently stayed here for a long weekend. There were five of us in total - two friends, my husband, one-year-old daughter, and myself. The two bedrooms are very spacious, and there are two bathrooms - one with a shower. The kitchen is more than adequate for a vacation stay, and Chiara was nice enough to stock the fridge and cabinets with some basics, including cereal, milk, fruit, water, and coffee/tea. She even had a bottle of wine and some panettone to welcome us!
    The view from the roof-top deck is incredible, and it is the most perfect place to relax and just take in the beauty of Venice! Since we visited in January, we didn't get to enjoy it that much, but we still made sure to brave the cold a few times to enjoy the views.
    Since we couldn't spend our evenings on the roof due to the cold, we did enjoy the very spacious living room, which is complete with puzzles, books, and wifi to keep you entertained - or you could just sit and talk all evening and plan for the next day like we did. Bascially, there was plenty of room for the four of us to sit around and relax, and even space for our daughter to play.
    If you have children, there is no other place to stay in Venice! Chiara went above and beyond to find a travel cot for our 16month old daughter, and she also had several toys and even child cups available. This was such a help to us as any parent knows how difficult it is to pack everything you need when flying. It also was so sweet and made our daughter feel right at home.
    We only had an issue with the shower pressure and hot water during our stay. However, Chiara was very quick to help us fix it and even offered to come that day with a hydraulics specialist. I would just make sure to ask Chiara about the reset switch for the water pump during check-in.
    In conclusion, this is a perfect place to stay and enjoy Venice, and you could not ask for a better hostess!

  • Chiara è semplicemente straordinaria! disponibile e gentile sin dal primo contatto; si è preoccupata affinchè il nostro soggiorno potesse essere il migliore possibile!...e lo è stato!. Non ho mai conosciuto una persona così ospitale :-)
    La casa è favolosa, pulitissima e completa di tutto. La posizione è davvero invidiabile, e la vista dai due terrazzi è da togliere il fiato! (le foto parlano da sole...).
    Tornerò sicuramente ad Altana Alba Chiara!E' stata un'esperienza davvero indimenticabile...!

    Grazie mille Chiara...!!a presto!
    un forte abbraccio, Stefania

    Все прекрасно: место расположения, уют, чистота, виды с площадки на крыше - потрясающие!!!

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!!!! Chiara Bearzatto
