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.

We were welcomed out of the private lift by Marco and Stefania who were extremely pleasant and helpful. The apartment was spotless, well equipped and beautifully furnished. However it is the outside space which is the most spectacular and bigger than it appears in the photographs with many seating options all around. The outside furniture is of a very high standard - no plastic chairs here. We found the apartment perfectly located for us, being in between the beach bars on one side and the town on the other. We tried two very good neighbourhood restaurants and there is a well stocked nearby supermarket. We would not hesitate to recommend it and hope to return there soon.

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.
