About Alessandra

I was born in Venice, and I have spent most of my life in Venice. Over time I have noticed how the city has changed—how it has adapted itself to the new demands of modernity, in its own particular fashion.

Since 2011 I leave the city often, and every time I return to Venice I feel as if I’ve lost my bearings. I seem to find myself in a halfway state, between someone who’s spent his childhood in a place and delighted in its spirit, and someone who feels from time to time like a mere observer in that place.

I believe both outsiders and Venetians can share the same emotions before the unique beauty of the city. Feeling the same sensations, I cannot help but adhere to a common vision—true, passionate, gratifying, and grateful for a culture that has marked Western history. At heart, any foreigner who really loves Venice is also a Venetian.

I love nature and culture, both global and local. I believe in sharing, learning, exchanging and respecting.

I’m very energetic and active. I love photography, and I’m especially passionate about traveling.

Why Alessandra chose Venice

Because Venice is the best city in the world!

If you are looking for arts, relaxation, comfort and excellent food, it is an excellent choice for short and long visits.

What makes this apartment unique

Venice is one of the most interesting and romantic cities in the entire world, known as “La Serenissima" or the Most Serene, it has been captivating its visitors for hundreds of years. Ancient buildings never looked as romantic as in Venice, where centuries-old “palazzi" are reflected in this city's plentiful canals.

Venice, the world's only pedestrian city, is best enjoyed by walking. The absence of car traffic makes this the perfect way to experience what Venice has to offer. As a city that cherishes its food, the famous Rialto Market is a delicious way to experience the Venice dining scene. Particularly known as a fish market, the Rialto Market also offers plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit for sale, too. Visitors may stroll through the market, window-shopping or simply point to what they want to purchase—friendly vendors will bag it up. The Rialto Bridge, near the Rialto Market, contains a row of restaurants with tables by the canal, offering a true Venice dining experience by the city's canal lights.

First-time visitors may at first be surprised that the main way of getting around Venice is on foot. It is not a large city, and it is quite possible to walk from one end to the other in an hour. In fact, one of the many joys of visiting Venice is simply walking through its traffic-free streets and alleyways, catching sight of the canals as you cross the characteristic Venetian bridges.

The only other way of getting around is by boat, and for everyday travel you will generally use the vaporetto and motoscafo water buses. Water taxis are more expensive - in fact, probably the most expensive taxis in the world - but are very fast and are able to take you along back routes that offer an alternative view of the city. Gondolas are hardly a practical way of getting from A to B, but will take you on the most romantic of journeys along almost any canal in Venice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous stay and found everything we needed in the flat, thank you especially to Miss Anna for coming to meet us and for the lovely coffee and tea provisions, it was a welcome start to each morning. Everything was perfectly reachable from the flat and we enjoyed finding our way around. Good breakfast can be had near by at Bottega Del Caffe Dersut. Alessandra was very helpful on all aspects of our stay.

The fee you agree to when you make your reservation includes things we cannot describe with simple words. For example, the website description cannot successfully explain that the apartment is absolutely spotless and hypoallergenic. From the few pictures online, you cannot see how finely appointed the apartment is, the quality of linens you sleep in, the beauty of fine Rubelli upholstery, the variety of Venetian cookies (from Burano island) that you find in your kitchen as a welcome, in addition to the cold or hot drinks waiting for you. We value good relationships and clear communications with our guests from all over the world, and we take seriously the high quality of the service we offer. We aim to deliver beauty, grace, culture, and excellent hospitality.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement correspond à la description de l'annonce. Il est idéalement situé au cœur de la ville, sa vue sur le campo San Stin est dégagée. Il est très propre et récemment rénové.

Alessandra est très arrangeante, notre séjour a été très agréable.
