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

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

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.

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!

Great Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 2 nights in August. It is in a great location, with each bedroom having a balcony overlooking the canal. The apartment was clean and spacious enough for four of us. The kitchen has everything you would need for you stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Balconies over canal are wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment the balconies overlooking the canal's are outstanding and a great way to feel connected while staying in a room we loved to go out there in the evening and watch the boats go by and the activity on the street the area of the apartment has a number of very good restaurants and is outside the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas we were there during a very hard time but there are plenty of fans and even though it is not air-conditioned it was still very comfortable department was very clean and Renato was outstanding in communicating and making sure that we needed anything I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it

Owner's Response: Thank you so much John, it has been a pleasure hosting you at Casa Allegra. Great to hear you absolutely loved the apartment with it's balconies overlooking the canal's being a great way to feel connected while staying home, we loved to go out on the balconies in the evening and watch the boats go by and the activity on the street the area of the apartment has a number of very good restaurants and is outside the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas. Unfortunate there was a freak heat wave during your stay, glad there were plenty of fans to cool you, that you found the apartment comfortable and very clean and that the communication was outstanding. We look forward to welcoming you again at your next opportunity. You are welcome. Benvenuti. Again thank you so much. Renato

Lovely apartment with easy access to all the sights of Venice

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four was very comfortable in this spacious two bedroom apartment. Our children (ages 10 and 12) slept comfortably in the bunk beds in one bedroom and my husband and I slept well on the king sized bed in the other bedroom. It was wonderful to have a washing machine and a spacious drying rack, in addition to the outdoor clothing line. Checking in was very easy and all communications were very easy and queries were responded to easily. It was wonderful to have restaurants, a bakery, and a gelato shop just minutes from the apartment. We appreciated having all the fans in the apartment because it was hot during our visit!

charming apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (5 people) had a lovely stay at Casa Allegra. The pre arrival information was great and check in was a breeze. The location was great--quaint and quiet but only steps to all of the main attractions. The restaurant suggestions offered by the owners were excellent and the kitchen and grocery store nearby made at home meals easy as well. I would return to Casa Allegra again and again.
