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.

Beautiful Apartment in the centre of Lecce

5 of 5
Fantastic apartment in the centre of Lecce that provides an excellent base with everything you need. We really enjoyed having breakfast and evening meals outside on the terrace, especially when the weather was too hot to be indoors! The apartment is well equipped with a very comfortable super king sized bed and much welcomed air con in the bedroom. Francesco and Donatella were great hosts, responded quickly to messages and were very helpful. A very memorable holiday and would definitely love to go back!!
