Guest book: Dear Renato

Thank you so much for the wonderful holiday at Casa Allegra. We had a wonderful time. The apartment was just perfect. The neighborhood is just as I remember and we did enjoy the time immensely. The weather was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend Casa Allegra to anyone who asked.

With regards and thanks, Alison Pols.

Dear Renato,

I just wanted to tell you what a lovely stay we had in Venice - greatly enhanced by being able to stay in your apartment. All the family enjoyed ourselves and we'll certainly recommend you to our friends.

Best wishes,

Evelyn Dods.

Dear Renato,

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed Venice and your apartment. It was lovely to come back to a home after a day's sightseeing, not just a hotel room and the location was terrific. Your pre-arrival information was most helpful and your directions excellent.

Regards

Jan Elliot.

Guest book: Dear Renato,

Well, we’re home again after 3 wonderful weeks in bella Italia. We just wanted to say thank you for Casa Allegra! What a great place!

Casa Allegra is spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. The moon was full and the weather was perfect. We had a good time in Venezia, La Serenissima! The week went by all too quickly. There always will be more to see. So, I’m sure you wouldn’t be surprised to receive a reservation request from us again sometime…! In the meantime, we’ll enjoy our memories of La Serenissima, Casa Allegra and the October moon over Misericordia.

Thank you again.

Best regards,

Ellen & Brian

CANNAREGIO FAVORITE

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I have just returned from our annual trip to Venice. As usual, I wanted to stay at Case Allegra, because it is both comfortable and atmospheric. This was my fourth visit there, and it was fabulous from start to finish.

Louisa, who provides the housekeeping between visits, met us promptly upon arrival. The house was spotless (freshly painted as well), the beds ready, and all was well with the world.

The apartment is close to everything. We came in via the Linea Arancio of the Allelaguna, as it stops at Madonna Del Orto, just three bridges away from the house. There are grocery stores and restaurants within 1-5 minutes. Each morning at 7:30, Monica, just across the San Marziale bridge, has fresh bread to go with morning coffee. She also has milk and other staples- and is a lovely woman.

We have a new favorite restaurant from this visit- Osteria L'Orto Dei Mori- very close by the apartment. The food is very, very, good.

I won't go into all we did in Venice, but will tell you that our experience was heightened by being able to stay at this apartment. It is convenient, comfortable, and charming. Looking out over the canal from the two balconies is a great thing to do while winding down after a long day on the lagoon. I feel at home the moment I walk through the door.

I give this particular spot my highest recommendation, and thank Renato, Allegra, and Louisa, for maintaining it and making it available to us. Thank you so much for another perfect April vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Alison it is always a great pleasure having you stay with us at Casa Allegra. And greatly appreciate the little gem tips you're kindly sharing with us as to where to get fresh bread in the mornings, just around the corner across the canal or how nice to have a new restaurant to add to our list of recommended locals, one that it is close by with very good food makes it all the better, and the handy tip on how to reach the apartment from the Marco Polo airport with the Linea Arancio to Madonna Dell'Orto. Doesn't get any better than that! Here's very much looking forward to having you stay again next April - your dates are already on hold! Welcome! Benvenuti! All the very best,
Renato and the Casa Allegra Team

COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT

  • 3 of 5
My husband and I prefer self-catering to hotels because we can cook, do laundry, have more space, and live more like the locals.

This is a well-equipped apartment at the intersection of two canals, one quiet and one very busy. The location is convenient. There is plenty of information provided about restaurants, shopping, and sights.

The apartment is clean and has all the items needed to prepare meals, do laundry, and be comfortable. I recommend adding a shelf or caddy in the shower for shampoo, etc. The décor is older. As is typical, English TV channels are limited.

Two notes: the balconies are very small. One person can step onto them, but that's it. Also, the noise level around the apartment is very energetic well into the night, similar to any big city. With all windows closed, the noise is manageable.

I would recommend this apartment to a couple or small family who do not require a quiet location.

WONDERFUL VENETIAN HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Dear Renato,
We would like to thank you you for the most WONDERFUL time spent at Casa Allegra. We so appreciated the light airy rooms and compulsive views out of the balcony windows! The apartment is superbly equipped and a comfort to return to after a busy day sight seeing. We found the information booklet extremely helpful-thank you. Our break was very relaxing and we soon found ourselves slipping into to Venitian way of life! Casa Allegra nestles in the most perfect area, convenient to lovely restaurants and shops yet somehow hidden from the hustle and bustle. Thank you for sharing your home and art work. We feel very fortunate to have stayed at Casa Allegra . Thank you to Luisa for being so helpful. We cannot wait for another trip to Venice . Warmest regards David,Beverley,Harriet and Henry Bradley

MY ADDRESS IN VENICE

  • 5 of 5
Dear Renato and the Casa Allegra team,

Thank you again for a wonderful, relaxing, and restorative vacation at Casa Allegra. It was, as usual, perfect from start to finish. The apartment feels like home to me after so many years of visiting. My thanks to Louisa for being there to welcome me as if I were an old and dear friend.

You can expect me again, next year, at the usual time! I'll be in touch with specifics in due course, but wanted you to know that I really enjoyed myself this year.

For others, expect excellent customer service from honest and reliable people, and a clean, well equipped, charming and atmospheric apartment in a great location. There is easy access to shopping, restaurants, and all the beauty that Venice has to offer. It is a snap to get there from the airport, and within walking distance of all of the sestiere.

Thanks again,

Alison

AVERAGE QUALITY ACCOMMODATIONS IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a 3-week trip to Italy that included stops in Rome, Tuscany, and Venice. Our 6-night stay at Casa Allegra (which ended our trip) was the portion that we were looking forward to the most, but unfortunately, the apartment proved to be the most disappointing of our trip. Casa Allegra is not “bad”, per se, but we found it to be disappointing and inconsistent with the past reviews and its overall 5-star rating. We also found the apartment to be of lower quality and value than all the other apartments that we rented in Italy.

First, positive points: The location is convenient, two blocks from Strada Nuova but two blocks away from a quiet portion of Venice. There are nice restaurants and bars very close by, but it was easy to access other nice parts of the city, including Castello and San Polo. Renato (with whom we interacted only virtually) and Luisa (who met us at the apartment to hand over the keys) were professional and reliable. The apartment’s floors and surfaces (including the kitchen) had been very well cleaned prior to our arrival. The apartment also has a great deal of “space”. The kitchen, living room, and master bedroom were all among the largest that we encountered during our trip. There is enough sleeping space to accommodate a family of 4 or 5 (though perhaps not 2 couples due to the orientation of the beds). There is also a good selection of local guidebooks at the house, which complemented a nice overview packet sent in advance by Renato.

The positive points above made our stay enjoyable and livable and thus earn this apartment a 3-star rating. Our main criticism is that the apartment feels like a temporary stay and high volume rental rather than a home or vacation rental. During our rentals in other parts of Italy, we felt like we were guests in our owners’ homes rather than occupants in a rental room. With Casa Allegra, the feeling is that of an absentee owner who expects many guests and thus operates his/her property as more of a boarding house. Examples of this include: Heavy mildew/mold spots on the ceiling of the bathroom; heavy plastic covering for the kitchen table; a vinyl-covered couch; no rugs or floor coverings; and a very dusty comforter and blankets in the bed room. Overall, the apartment felt dated, tired, and under-supervised.

Casa Allegra’s people are great, but the apartment needs work. I would not recommend it to anyone other than a family who would appreciate the abundance of space.

Owner's Response: Hello Matt,

Thank you for submitting a review for Casa Allegra.

To be honest your review feels quite unfair and too harsh.

If you had compared our Casa Allegra apartment to other similar apartments in central Venice we would feel it would be fair enough. But the reality is Venice is not Siena.

Overall for your value for the money you'd be hard to find a better place for your money in a still genuine part of central Venice that wasn't dark and cramped,

With best regards

Renato and the Casa Allegra team.
