My husband and I enjoyed feeling like ‘ex-patriates’ while staying in this beautiful, large apartment. We were able to tour all day and then stroll into town each evening for dinner. There are many interesting and beautiful towns within an easy drive, and we found Lecce to be a lively, ‘real’, Italian town with historical sites, lovely shops and a variety of restaurants, wine bars, and dining options. Hope you are there are a Sunday evening when locals and tourists alike enjoy a light dinner and strolling the streets. The owners are gracious and helpful and the apartment is beautifully maintained with two modern bathrooms and a roomy kitchen. We never actually cooked, but it Is nice that there is a dishwasher. I hand washed some laundry, but there is a small washing machine (no dryer) in a nice laundry room. For me, the only thing more I would have asked for is a coffee maker. There are nearby cafes for yummy cappuccinos, but I missed my morning coffee in the apartment (didn’t know how to use that Italian press.). We visited in early October and had great weather so we were able to use the rooftop garden a couple of times. We had a car which I strongly recommend for touring and we parked it in a nearby parking area for a weekly fee. The apartment is very conveniently located for a five-minute walk into town and to grocery stores. The living space is one floor up from the street, but since it is located on the corner of a fairly busy street there is occasional street noise; however, we never found it to be a problem. We enjoyed our stay very much.
We had an amazing time in LECCE, thanks in no small part to via cote 7, and ALICE.The old town is wonderful, and charming, but it was always nice to return to via cote, away from all those tourists !!.Only ten minute walk to old town, very quiet street, supermarket, restaurants, bars, all on your doorstep.Try walking past PASTICCERIA FRANCHINI, without being tempted !!.Apartment is modern inside, good sized bathroom with large shower area, and lots of hot water,plenty of kitchen utensils, very comfortable bed. Mosquitoes screens on all doors and windows and quaint and private courtyard.Alice is a wonderful host, from answering all our questions promptly and honestly, and offering return transfers to airport.THANK YOU ALICE.
