About the property


"Casa Allegra" is the sister house to "Casa Andante", which is right next door and "Casa Adagio" in Daylesford.

Casa Allegra, as the names suggests is a place of happiness and joy.

This beautiful five bedroom house, right in the heart of Trentham, is the perfect escape for up to 10 people. In addition to the 2 living areas in the house, there is a large garden studio which provides an extra entertainment area with a billiard table and table tennis table. This can be used as a yoga space, or meeting room.

If your group is larger than 10 people, you can also rent Casa Andante which is right next door. Each of the houses has 5 bedrooms and sleep 10 people, so with both houses you have available 10 bedrooms and can sleep up to 20 people. Perfect for a retreat!

Casa Allegra sits on almost 5000sqm of beautiful landscaped gardens. Suitable for small day time garden weddings, the expansive gardens and the views to the lake makes you feel as though you are away from it all, even though you are right in the heart of Trentham. It is an easy 5 minute stroll to the fabulous pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops.

Casa Allegra has recently been renovated, the result of which is a light filled, elegant yet relaxed and comfortable spacious home. Stunning antique furniture, light fittings, objects d'art and artwork supplied by well-known Melbourne based antique dealer, Miguel Meirelles, feature throughout the house.

Every room is a feast for the eyes, with beautiful and unique furnishings and decorative items.

A separate garden studio provides a large comfortable and beautiful space to enjoy billiards, table tennis, yoga or simply relaxing in front of the fire and enjoying the peaceful garden outlook.

The outlook and position of this magnificent home makes it a perfect property for all seasons. In Summer you can enjoy al fresco dining on the deck. With an elevated view over the large garden and the lake beyond, it is the perfect setting for long lunches or dinner parties. Or enjoy a picnic in the spacious gardens, croquet on the lawns, or find a quiet place to read a book. At night enjoy the starry skies sitting around the fire pit in the garden.

In winter, curl up in front of the fire in the cosy living room on comfy sofas or enjoy the large sunny garden studio with billiard table, table tennis table and another fireplace with sofas. Choices of indoor entertainment include a HD flat screen TV with DVD player (range of DVD’s supplied), board games, books, magazines, a broad range of music supplied on the IPOD dock. The house is really well heated with two wood fires, two split system units and heaters in each bathroom so you will be cosy and warm during your stay. The large garden studio also has a wood fire and 2 split system heaters.

The hand made farm-house table with seating for 10 is adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. A BBQ is also provided on the deck. A chef can be arranged to provide catering at the house, although there are so many great places to eat in Trentham just minutes from the house.

There are several local chefs who can come to cook for you at the house including the famous Annie Smither's of 'Du Fermier' one of Trentham's dining treasures. Annie is delighted to offer guests at Casa Allegra an amazing dining experience in house. Annie and a waiter will provide a fully interactive experience and of course amazing food! Bookings can be made directly with Annie and are subject to availability (evenings only). Contact Du Fermier for information.

The property has five stylishly appointed bedrooms. Each room can be configured with a King sized bed or two long singles. Each bedroom has a distinctive colour scheme, with beautiful linen and upholstered bed heads. You will be kept nice and warm as each bed has electric blankets and gorgeously cosy bedding. Two bedrooms have ensuites. The remaining three bedrooms are serviced by a bathroom with a full sized bath. There is also an additional separate toilet.

Wedding Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed her withthe wedding party on the weekend just past and it couldn't have been a better place. Great house, amazing grounds, well set out with heaps of inclusions that most places never have. We had a massive BBQ the day after the wedding with around 50 family and friends and we definitely could have had an extra 50 too. The grounds, games room decking and everything was amazing. I think half my family now have the design for the dream houses sorted. Thank you

Fabulous Christmas stay with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The property is well suited to large family groups. Large dining tables inside and out (on wonderful veranda with view of the garden), and nice kitchen made cooking fun. If there is a negative, it is the electric stove top. It takes some getting used to and is slow and not as functional as gas. However, the gas external BBQ solved that. We were blessed with a cold Christmas Eve and lit the fire- it was sensational. Studio is a great bonus for children with lots of games options and huge space to play. Just loved the garden and picked wild strawberries with the children. Wake to birdsong every morning, and open windows for fresh air (with screens to prevent mozzies and flies). This house has it all and being located in Trentham makes it easy to visit Daylesford and surrounds. This house was the perfect choice for our family.

Idyllic place for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house for our annual reunion weekend.

Kitchen was very well appointed with all we needed. All the fires were set and there was plenty of wood for our long evenings of reminiscing.

All of the beds had been set up as singles to accomodate 10 "old" nurse friends.

Good local eateries in easy walking distance. Daylesford and Kyneton both scored a visit too. Easy 20 minutes by car.

Took a lovely walk on the Wombat forest trail in the early morning coolness sharing the bush with the local kangaroos.

Wonderful weekend. Casa Allegra is definitely on our return to list.

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

I had a very relaxing getaway with 9 friends to attend a wonderful one day workshop at Casa Allegra. The accommodation was absolutely perfect and catered lunch in the studio was delicious. We all learned so much thanks to knowledgable Simon and thank you Charmaine too for your wonderful hospitality. Every detail was taken care of. For dinner we took a short stroll to 'The Plough' for dinner which was also great and then another short walk for breakfast nearby at Red Beard. None of us wanted to leave. Can't wait to return another time.

Stunning home and gardens - Bellisimo

  • 5 of 5

I booked both Casa Allegra and Casa Andante for a weekend away with old friends. It worked wonderfully having both houses. Both houses are beautifully styled, the comfort is exceptional, the cleanliness perfect: overall the attention to detail is unique. On one day we used the large studio at Casa Allegra for a yoga class and enjoyed long walks in the lovely surrounds. We relaxed in the various lounge rooms of Casa Andante and Casa Allegra with lovely open fires. My friends and I all thought the properties were sensational and have booked again for a return trip.
