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.

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Renato

Thank you for the accommodation in Venice, we found it to be perfectly situated for our stay.

It was our first visit to Venice and left us wanting to return to this stunning city with the warmest of hearts

We met people from all over the world who seem to forget their national identity in a state of wonder at the beauty of Venice, a most refreshing experience.

I have passed your details to a friend Peter Bradley who visits Venice frequently I am sure he would enjoy the apartment.

The bar owner opposite was most friendly and welcoming, providing excellent food at realistic prices in this delightful setting.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to visit Venice, I shall certainly be in touch with you in the future.

Best wishes

Comfrt and Beautiful Light

  • 5 of 5

My annual trip to Italy is made better by my stay at Casa Allegra. The apartment is comfortable with all I need for a 2 week (or longer) stay. Everything works as it should and the apartment is comfortable and homelike; the Casa Allegra team makes sure that all transactions are smooth and faultless. Food and drink are close by. Vino Vero, just across the bridge pours a mighty fine glass of wine. Monica (again just across the bridge) provides morning bread. Grocery stores are close by, all "big" sights are an easy walk away. This house house is just three bridges away from the Alilaguna Orto stop, a brief walk to the Fondamenta Nuova, a bridge away from Strada Nuova, yet tucked away from the hustle and bustle.

What brings me back to this lovely spot on the planet each year goes beyond the excellent amenities. The light in this apartment is quintessentially Venetian. Having windows on two canals (this is a corner apartment) means that the light in the apartment is really quite superb. Reflections dance on the ceiling as you relax in the bedroom. The air is fresh and there is good cross ventilation.

I write a review each year that I visit Casa Allegra. It only gets better each year. I could live here forever, and this is not hyperbole!

Very clean

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean with good facilities. Excellent location, but in a location that at night can be very lively with a restaurant and young persons wine bar, open till late, that can make sleeping difficult.

Owner's Response: Thank you David, great you that found our Casa Allegra apt to be clean with good facilities and in excellent location. Sound sensitivity can be individual. As you would have seen in the pictures there is a restaurant opposite us with outdoor seating on the promenade. Our sincere apologies you found the neighborhood lively making your sleep difficult. Again thank you, it has been a pleasure hosting you and safe onwards travels!

Great location on the corner of 2 canals. A cute apartment in a wonderful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything we needed for our 9 night stay. It was close to a good bakery and easy walking distance to a grocery store. I loved being able to do our laundry at home and hang it out to dry on the laundry line over the canal just outside our kitchen window. We had everything we needed to cook simple meals but often enjoyed eating out at many of the wonderful restaurants in the neighborhood. The only unfortunate aspect of our stay was that the owners of the upstairs apartment were having work done thst created noise and dust. Luckily we were out sight seeing during the day so the noise didn't impact us too much. Renato also sent Ms. Luisa over to clean after our apartment got dusty from all the plaster being scraped in the hall. Both of them were very responsive, helpful and apologetic about the neighbors timing! They hadn't warned Renato about the work being done on their place.

I would love to stay in Casa Allegra again someday. I hope to return with my whole family as soon as we can!

This is a truly stellar apartment!

Very spacious, with all the amenities you could wish for. My daughter and I had a great week here, without getting on each others nerves (not always possible in holiday accommodation). I think it would equally suit a family of 4.

The preparation for our trip was made so much easier by the information sent by Renato; and check in was great from Senora Luisa, even though we arrived earlier than estimated.

The kitchen was well equipped and I enjoyed preparing meals with the produce we bought from the pescharia and Rialto veg market. The Coop also, has everything you could want, including a good Deli section. The bakery is very handy and the lovely senora behind the counter kind and helpful.

We also had some good meals out, using Renato's recommendations; though sadly had to cancel our reservation at Anice Stellato on our last night - a reason to come back?

We loved travelling back and forth on the traghetti, even when we didn't need to go to market. Though Al Merca, at the corner of the square has the most delicious pannini.

Another great pleasure was travelling the length of the Grand Canal and back on the back of a vaporetto, both in the early morning and at nightfall; but then we both love water.

But I think my favourite thing was sitting on the balcony of Casa Allegra watching the city come to life. The early traffic on the canal, the people going to work, the children off to school, the first stumbling tourists. Sometimes it was quite hard to leave to go sight-seeing.

I would also recommend the free walking tour, which we found through the blog that Renato recommends.

One word of warning. Madonna del Orte is the last stop on the Alilaguna before the airport. At 7.30 on a saturday they wouldn't let us on as it was full. Faced with a half hour wait, and the likelihood it would be the same again, we were beginning to panic. Fortunately, a young couple from Britain in the same situation took pity, and together we took a vaporetto to the station and shared a taxi from there (40 euros for 4 -- quite reasonable by Venetian standards). We met many friendly and helpful people of all nationalities in Venice - must be something in the water.

Finally a big thank you to the managementof Casa Allegra. We were contacted throughout our stay to ensure things were going well; and even since return Renato has sent me a recipe for a favourite dish.

I can't recommend this apartment highly enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ann and Sally, it has been a true pleasure to host you at Casa Allegra, great to know you enjoyed your stay so much and that you found everything you needed in the apartment to make you comfortable, and to cook up a storm with the local produce from the wonderful market at Rialto is a lovely experience, besides it is a real treat to go shopping by crossing the gran canal with the peoples gondola, yet another uniqness of Venice. Yes sitting on one of the balconies with the stunning scenic view above the canals, and people watching is indeed mesmerizing. Again thank you, it has been a pleasure. Best regards Renato

Look No Further for your Dream Apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

My group of 3 had a wonderful stay at Casa Allegra during our recent visit to Venice. Renato make the booking process so easy and provided us with a comprehensive electronic packet of information about the apartment and surrounding area. This was very helpful in planning dinners, activities, etc. Ms. Luisa took great care of us at arrival acquainting us the apartment features and departure was a breeze. Renato followed up after check in and check out to confirm we were happy with everything.

The apartment is located in a great spot - wonderful restaurants nearby, close to the Jewish Ghetto and very close to Strada Nova (lots of shopping and activity) . What we really loved was that we could very quickly get to all of the tourist locations and have our lodgings in a less touristy part of Venice.

We truly loved the experience at Casa Allegra. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and ready for you upon arrival. We will definitely book again at Casa Allegra the next time we are in Venice.

For all of you cruisers - we stayed at Casa Allegra pre-cruise and are so glad we had the extra days in Venice.

Until next time Casa Allegra - Tamari, Sam and Debbie

Comfortably appointed apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay in this apartment, which is just far enough removed from the craziness of Piazza San Marco to perhaps give a hint of what life in Venice might really be like. There are good restaurants one bridge away across the Canal Misericordia. The apartment is simply furnished and can easily accommodate 4. The kitchen is well equiped. The apartment is atmospheric and quiet. San Marco is a comfortable walk away and there is also the vaporetto option.
