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

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!

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.
