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.

Everything you could need was in the apartment, all very clean and even some welcoming food and drink. Giovanni was most helpful on directions, greeting us, explaining how everything worked (listen very carefully) and giving us tips on where to go, what to see and what beaches are good, depending on the weather/wind! He couldn't be more helpful. Plenty of space, with a good dining area, a nice lounge, good kitchen, great bathroom (shower was good), upstairs bedroom was lovely with much needed air-con (use the spiral staircase carefully) and a very spacious cellar with a big table and more sofas/beds. Only downsides a) was parking was a couple of streets away, but Giovanni again advised us where to park for the best rates (2-3 Euros per day, take lots of coins if you can) b) Not a lot of outside space, but you are in the centre of town, so we often sat outside a local, friendly cafe in the glorious sunshine (it was hot, averaging 35+) reading etc. In summary, a great location and a good base for exploring the heel of Italy. Highly recommended.
