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 recently returned from a stay in the small liama, which exceeded our expectations. Mr Oreste met us at the junction of the motorway on the day of our arrival, and led us to the accommodation via the most beautiful countryside. We arrived, and were blown away by the stunning views over the olive groves to the sea. The outside seating area was large, and perfect for enjoying an early morning coffee before exploring the many beautiful towns.
The local beach is quite wonderful, with powder white sand and crystal clear waters. I would also thoroughly recommend visiting Leuca, where there is a fabulous fish restaurant, which overlooks the beach.
We were very sad to leave this place, but will definitely visit again some time. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday, and I would totally recommend this place to anyone wanting some peace and quiet in stunning countryside.
