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

We stayed in the Orange apartment which is ideal for a couple. The bedroom was comfortable and the kitchen had adequate facilities for all the meals we prepared. We had unseasonably cool and wet weather so only got to try out the pool area on one occasion but if the elements had permitted we would have spent more time there. The gardens are attractive and well maintained. Giancarlo could not have been more helpful. He went out of his way to help us resolve an issue we had with our hire car - it seemed nothing was too much trouble. We liked the faded grandeur of the town. There are some lovely old buildings. Food in the restaurant in the Piazza was good. We look forward to returning

The house itself is beautifully designed and decorated, combining the character of the old trullo with all the modern comforts that we needed to make our stay perfect. The outside area was spacious, with lots of areas to relax, and a dip in the rock-pool made for a very refreshing wake up each morning. The owner Sabina was incredibly helpful, recommending restaurants, beaches and towns for us to visit, and went out of her way to make reservations anywhere we planned on going. We hope to visit again, and would highly recommend staying here.

Le propriétaire est accueillant et disponible en cas de besoin. Il y a la possibilité de visiter de nombreux sites intéressants, d'aller se baigner ou de rester tranquille sur la terrasse. Nous avons passé mon mari et moi un très beau séjour, car nous aimons le calme et la nature. Patricia
