“The perfect apartment”

We loved everything about our stay in Chiara's lovely apartment.

Chiara met us off the water taxi and led us the short distance to the apartment. There are about 70 steps, but the view from the terrace is worth every step. The apartment itself is spacious, light and very quiet. The real attraction, however, is the fantastic terrace. The views are amazing and photos do not do it justice. It must be higher than 90% of Venice and the sense of being above the city is great.

We spent about 8 hours up there one day with excellent weather. Once the sun moved round, we could sit in the shade of the lower terrace for a while before moving back to the upper terrace for the evening. We watched the most amazing sunset from there. The location is also perfect for exploring Venice.

Special mention must also go to Chiara, who made us feel completely at home. She even walked us over the Rialto when we expressed an interest in the Rialto market, to point out the good places to eat. We didn’t need her assistance while we were there, but it was clear that if we did need to ask her anything it wasn’t going to be a problem.

You must also try All’Arco for the excellent cicchetti. It’s about 2 minutes over the other side of the Rialto. Gorgeous.

I can’t recommend this apartment enough, and Chiara was a perfect host.

“Beautiful apartment next to the Rialto Bridge with stunning views from rooftop altana”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable and well appointed apartment; the location is wonderful, and the rooftop views from the two rooftop altana's are stunning. Chiara met us from the vaporetto and gave us lots of useful suggestions for restaurants and trips. It would be difficult to beat this accommodation for location; however far you walk in the city it is always easy to get back to the Rialto Bridge!

I would definitely highly recommend the apartment, (except for this with any difficulties with stairs perhaps!) and look forward to visiting again in future.

We had the pleasure of staying in Chiara's wonderful apartment in Oct.14. To say it exceeded our expectations, would be an understatement!
Chiara is a most gracious and kind host. She replied promptly to all requests/questions and met us upon our arrival and at our departure.
The apartment met all our needs and was spacious,clean and comfortable. The A/C worked great!
Morning coffee/sunrises and evening wine/sunsets, on the terraces, were breath-taking and a lifetime memory. It is our new "happy place" lol. Too many great memories to list in this short review.
Do yourself the biggest favour ever and stay here!!!! Thanks again Chiara for sharing your beautiful apartment.

Venice is an island, but it is also a universe focussing on the pedestrian. Climbing the stairs to the apartment one experiences a growing distance to the dense activities on pedestrian level - but then on top one survey it all and even listen in from above. Fantastic ecperience, fantastic location. I found everything I needed in the apartment, even a set of conversion plugs. Chiara is a very organised host - her intro included all the necessary information: heating, lights, stereo, TV, dishwasher, etc. On top she had a map of the city for me and prepared it with very useful tips to locations, such as the bars in the neighbourhood that serve delicious fingerfood.

91 steps lead to the wonderful oasis that is the Altana Albachiara. The apartment is located atop one of the taller buildings located at the foot of the Rialto - with its entry secreted away from the crowds flowing across the bridge. The two story "flat" features on its first level a generous entry/stair hall, two amply sized bedrooms (plenty of closet space), powder room, workable kitchen with gas cooking, and a large living/dining room area with beamed ceiling. Upstairs there you will find a full bath (shower in tub) and hall with stair to altana (outside deck over roof). The altana features two levels - the lower level with a dining table setup, and the upper level with a nice sitting area and absolutely phenomenal views over the rooftops of Venice with vistas to Piazza San Marco and down the Canale Grande. Chiara greeted us upon arrival at the Rialto vaporatto stop, and was helpful in guiding us to markets and some excellent dining options. You cannot go wrong with this lovely, light filled location (but don't book when we want to be there!!)
