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

A Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Dear Renato and the Casa Allegra team,

Thanks again for making my annual trip to Italy a success. Casa Allegra is a special place. It is spacious, light filled, and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and makes cooking a pleasure- and so nice that food shops are very close by. The location, on the Misericordia canal, is really quite unique, in that one has windows that face on two canals. A highlight this trip? Watching children at a birthday party play "fetch the balloon out of the canal"- such hilarity involved in this uniquely Venetian riff on "pin the tail on the donkey".

Renato manages the apartment well and is very responsive (booking is a breeze), and Luisa, the onsite manager, is a delight. Casa Allegra is a great spot for a one or two week visit, but I imagine a time when I might be able to come to Venice for an extended visit. This apartment would be perfect for that.

Nitty gritty: Comfortable beds, all the hot water you need with good water pressure, plenty of pots, pans dishes, and utensils, a good washer, TV, great internet connectivity, household basics to get one started, and an easy walk everywhere.

Bonus? Three quick bridges away from the Madonna Del Orto boat stop and a quick Allelaguna ride from the airport.

Thanks again- I'll be back next year!

Ideal Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a very central location within about 5 minutes from the Rialto Bridge. Lots of restaurant's near by. Local supermarket about 3 minutes. It was a bit hot in August so we had to use the natural air conditioning all the time. One special bonus is the owner's fathers original paintings who is a famous English/Italian artist.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Jackie and myself loved the apartment and both can't wait to return. Every room apart from the bathroom has a beautiful canal view. The apartment had everything you need with plenty of towels, cleaning products and accessories. It was kept immaculately clean and could not fault a thing. Renato had plenty of fans to keep us Aussies cool. One day we will return! Thanks once again Renato. Amanda.

Casa Allegra- a refreshing retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Allegra was perfect in every way. Renato and Luisa were extremely courteous and helpful. We knew that they were available should we have incurred any problems- that in itself was very reassuring . We immersed ourselves in the Venetian way of life - busy St Marks square, museums,shopping etc but were always pleased to arrive back to our home from home! That being Casa Allegra. We highly recommend this wonderful property. Very clean,comfortable and totally individual. We feel very privileged to share it- THANK YOU

Immersed in the heart of Venice

  • 4 of 5

Casa Allegra was as picturesque as advertised in the heart of Venice and was a wonderful apartment to immerse ourselves in the Venice culture for two weeks. Renato provided excellent directions from the train station and written recommendations for his well chosen restaurants in the area. There was also plenty of tour books and maps in the bookcase for our use.

The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed learning to brew Italian coffee for breakfast each morning.

The furnishings were stylish and had artistic flair. The second bedroom had a desk that allowed us to keep our PC accessible but also out of the way.

Check in and check out was very easy and we did not have to wait for our POC to arrive.

We recommend this place for a romantic getaway. It was nice to open the window and hear the traveling musicians serenade the diners at the nearby cafes.
