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

Very clean, bright and spacious. Our charming holiday home in central Venice is furnished with antiques and Venetian chandeliers and beautiful original art. This is a genuine, well equipped home, not a soul-less property development with cheap furnishings. Fully equipped for self catering. Absolute waterfront, surrounded by 3 canals with picturesque views. In a central and still genuine part of Venice, criss-crossed by canals. Lots of great genuine local restaurants to choose from nearby and in well known 'foodie street opposite'. NEW!

Live like a local Venetian in very central apartment tucked away in genuine non touristy area criss-crossed by canals, facing a medieval cloister and a beautiful Venetian palace.

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!

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

Happy you found the apartment clean and well equipped and the pre-arrival info sent was of great help to enjoy the local shops and restaurants. We look forward to seeing you back again soon, thank you again. Best regards Renato

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.

Perfect place to make the most of your stay!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Casa Allegra and a wonderful time in Venice! The booking and contact with Renato was was perfect and easy. We just loved the appartment and the area! The appartment is very well kept and very cosy. Especially due to bar and restaurant tips Renato sent before our trip, we were treated with great food, great vine, and lots of fun. After visiting all those busy places in Venice we were always looking forward to come "home to our neighbourhood". We will definitely be back! Thank you, Renato, for the great service you provided!

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou Renato, your apartment was just lovely. Close enough to everything but just far enough off the beaten track. The welcome pack that you supplied with info about restaurants and supermarkets was wonderful. The apartment was spacious, although the mosquitos absolutely devoured my son on his first night he still thinks of it fondly. Would love to stay here again when, not if we return to Venice. We love the city and the apartment.

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.
