Make a holiday rental property or villa in Lecce, Italy your home away from home

Lecce is a hugely lavish and elegant city in Puglia province (Italy’s ‘heel’) of southern Italy. The ornate carvings which adorn many fine buildings in the area are made of local sandstone, which is so easy to carve that it has spawned an entirely original style of masonry, barocco leccese. Although it is not usually on the well beaten tourist route through Italy, Lecce is a city of magnificence and splendour, with undeniable charm.

Set in a very tranquil and calm area. Really lovely and unusual garden with natural rocks and beautiful natural rock pool - where the brave can cool off! The whole garden is very beautifully and romantically lit at night. The trullo itself is very well and comfortably furnished with everything you require for a self catering holiday. Directly opposite is a nature park where you can take some lovely walks, which lead you onto the coastline with some beautiful little isolated bathing coves and rock pools. You can even walk to two very nice bar/restaurants. Very slightly further afield the local village has a couple of very good seafood restaurants ( only open weekends out of season). Sabina the owner is utterly charming and delighted to help with recommendations and booking tours.

We we give some lovely wine which we opened on the first night and im not a fan of white wine but this was gorgeous. Some coffee, nibbles, fruit and tomatoes and we were given a full tour of the place by Pepe and Sumo. Everything in the house is fully thought through and the extra touches of the personalised towels sheets and even pillowcases was brilliant. The pool area is amazing and even though it was windy a few days you couldn't feel it when sun bathing. We had the best week and recommend the house and owners and beaches to anyone PS. Hope the black and white cat is ok he's so cute i wish i could have taken him home Thanks Pepe and Symo

L'interno della struttura risponde invece a tutto ciò che si vorrebbe trovare quando si alloggia fuori casa: accoglienza, gentilezza, pulizia, comodità la piscina è veramente stupenda.
