Although it is not usually on the well beaten tourist route through Italy, Lecce is a city of magnificence and splendour, with undeniable charm.

The apartment is situated in a quiet location just off the main piazza and we were able to walk to all the main sites of interest and many excellent restaurants. Maurizio was the perfect host, he met us at the bus station when we arrived from Brindisi Airport via the Pugliairbus and very kindly took us back to the train station when we left. He made us very welcome and it was a perfect start to our journey round Puglia. Thank you, Maurizio, for all your kindness.

The wonderfully warm weather was matched by the welcome from Massimo who is never more than a text or phone call away. We have stayed in many villas throughout Europe but have never before experienced the generosity shown to us by Massimo. On arrival there was a well stocked fridge, pantry and fruit basket. Massimo often popped in and brought local sweet and savoury pastries. There is a lovely pool with plenty of sun beds around it. The full size tennis court, with rackets and balls supplied, was regularly used by all of us. Villa Edda is in an ideal position to visit both coastlines about thirty minutes drive to each. Highly recommended by the Woodhouse family and friends and a villa we would love to return to.
