About Rosa

My name is Rosa, I was born and I live in Venice, a city that I love in every little detail, from the history to the art, the architecture and the way of living.

I manage with pleasure 3 apartments in the historic center of the city, adding this activity to my business managing a small perfumery near Piazza San Marco.

I speak and write fluently in English and French.

I love to travel and to find cozy places that make me feel at ease wherever I am.

Rosa purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rosa chose Venice city center

These apartments belong to my family. I decided to dedicate them to this activity because I love having contact with people from all over the world; opportunity that the international vocation of Venice allows me to accomplish.

I started this business with the main aim of making my guests's stay in the city as pleasant and comfortable as possible, so to return to their homes not only retaining the memory of the places visited, but also the feeling of having found their own 'home' in Venice.

My effort is, through custom maps and advice, to make discover Venice, not only as a tourist destination but as a city to love in its most secret shades; what I try to do, through my reading of the history of the city and my wandering in the constant research for hidden corners, is to transfer my passion to my guests, in the hope that it becomes a bit theirs too.

Arranging the apartments, I always try to interpret the needs of my guests, what they may need exactly as if I were the one who should stay.

Beautiful apartment in the San Croce district of Venice

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bed 2 bath apartment was perfect for us; 3 seniors & 1 almost senior. It was walkable for pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. The Vaporetto stop is within walking distance. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is modern, the living room seats 4 comfortably (it could use a small coffee table in front of the couch to put your feet up after those long walking days )and everything is clean! Rosa met us at the Vaporetto stop and walked us back to the apartment. She oriented us to the neighborhood, left us maps, provided us with a bag of cookies & a bottle of prosecco which was a wonderful way to start our afternoon. We had breakfast in the apartment everyday, one evening even had a light dinner. The kitchen has everything you need, except an oven, if you are someone who wants to make big roasted dinners while your on vacation. Just remember that Italian apartments on the 1st floor are really the 2nd story so you have to carry your luggage up a beautiful flight of stone stairs to the apartment. We all agreed we would go back to stay there again, and, hope to do so in the future.

Great location and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two friends recently spent 4 nights in Rosa's two bedroom and two bathroom apartment (DIVYA). Rosa was excellent with communication on the apartment from when I booked the apartment many months ago. And what a delight to meet her - she was very kind, sweet and helpful. The apartment is on the first floor (so not to far to carry your bags) and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Rosa kindly left some welcome goodies and there was plenty of coffee pods available. We found that the location of the apartment was perfect in the Santa Croce/San Polo area and only 10-15 minutes walk from the train station. It was an ideal spot to then explore the other neighborhoods of Venice. The apartment is a great option for 2 couples or a family. Thanks Rosa for helping us to have such a memorable stay in Venice.

The apartment was clean, beautiful, centrally located in Venice, and equipped with all the amenities we needed, including a clothes washer downstairs. The owner, Rosa, was so sweet and helpful with our stay and suggestions. Highly recommended!

Wonderful Venetian getaway

  • 5 of 5

From the very first enquiry, Rosa was very prompt and efficient with all communication. We were met at our water taxi on arrival by the lovely Mrs Ballini, who led us to the apartment, showed us how everything worked and gave us a great deal of useful information about restaurants, getting around and Venice in general. The apartment was immaculate, and just as described. Having such a comfortable home to return to each evening made our Venice stay all the more enjoyable. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone and would gladly return.

Wonderful apartment! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Rosa's apartment in the San Polo area of Venice was lovely! Ideal for the number in our party it was clean, modernly and comfortably furnished and very well equipped with all necessities. Ideally located away from the busiest and noisiest areas and yet close enough to get to any neighbourhood in a short amount of time. Charming!

Rosa herself was wonderful to deal with and was so helpful and gracious, making certain that we found our way, had everything we needed and providing information on sites and restaurants that we should not miss on our visit.

We loved Venice - a charming, magical city, unlike anywhere else in the world and having such worry-free accommodation only heightened our overall experience.

Do not hesitate to book with Rosa - you will not regret it!

If you like the idea of living Venice as a local, these cosy and comfortable apartments will be the right choice. They are situated in the very heart of Venice and located in a quiet 'calle', just a short walk from the Rialto Bridge and its vivacious marketplace and ten minutes far from St Mark's. They offer an excellent base for walking and losing yourself in the maze of narrow 'calli', courtyards and 'campi', discovering many secrets of this town, carrying with you, if you like, our own suggestions and advice.

A few steps from the apartments you can visit Ca' Pesaro (International Gallery of Modern Art), Mocenigo Palace (Center of Studies on the History of Textiles and Costumes), and the Museum of Natural History. For your leisure it will be impossible to miss the plenty of artisanal shops and for your pleasure the wide choice of restaurants, 'bacari', pizzerie, wineshops, bakeries, groceries and supermarkets.

You will find everything you need to spend a wonderful holiday in our town.

Other Activities: strolling without a goal, losing between calli and campielli
