“Beware of possible scam”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

I contacted the "agent" about availability. Alessandro Sancassani replied that it was open for the desired dates and to wire 55 euros to another person at an address in Milan. This was not the amount of the deposit indicated in the listing. We requested a written agreement and one was emailed, but it had totally wrong dates. We requested a corrected agreement and we've heard nothing more, even after several attempts to contact him. There are at least 4 sites advertising this property, including a facebook page. Between all the sites, there are 3 different owners or contacts listed. There are multiple warnings on legitimate sites to be beware of owners requesting cashier checks, wire transfers, moneygram etc. as most legitimate owners accept a credit card or paypal. The place looks terrific, but it appears to be a scam.

lacasaallegra, Direttore at La Casa Allegra, responded to this review, November 16, 2010
Are Sancassani Alessandro, manager of the apartment reservation La Casa Allegra (and husband of owner Anna Terruso). I think we need to make some details about your review. The first request of availability was received on 27/07/2010 and generated an exchange of e-mail until 06/08/2010. During these communications have been sent all the information about the apartment, references and how to book.
06/08/2010 Unfortunately we left for 7 days off (we do them) and I lost your last email, which is why I have not responded.
Then I have not received any communication or telephone them your e-mail.
Finally, as already mentioned in email contact our apartment is on many sites advertising (homelidays.com, atraveo, home away etc. ..) made payable to ALL Alessandro Sancassani or Anna Maria Terruso.
