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.

                                                            Lovely apartment, warm friendly and helpful young couple and a splendid location!

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            Really enjoyed our stay and this was the perfect accommodation. If ever we decide to go back to Lecce, I will look no further than staying here again. Everything was thought out to make our stay memorable. We even had real Italian coffee, English tea, fresh fruit, chocolate and jam spreads, fruit juice all readily available for our morning breakfast. The rooms were beautiful with stunningly high ceilings, wi fi, separate bathrooms etc etc. A gem right on the edge of the old town so everything was walkable. Book with confidence my fellow travellers.

                                                            Great apartment in a great location.

                                                            We were very comfortable in this lovely apartment which is a couple of minutes walk from the beautiful old centre of Lecce. Giovanni met us on our arrival and made us feel very welcomed. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Despite being here in March we still had a couple of bright and sunny days and having the terrace to sit out was a bonus. Lecce is beautiful, lots of places to visit and plenty of fine cafes and restaurants to sample the food and drink of the area. We would recommend a stay at this apartment when you visit to Lecce.

                                                            Charmant maison au cœur du Salento

                                                            La maison de Bruce est parfaite pour découvrir le Salento. Située dans un petit village typique et proche de la mer, la maison est jolie et très agréable. Décorée avec beaucoup de goût, elle également bien équipée. Bruce n'habite pas sur place mais vous donne toutefois de précieuses adresses pour découvrir le coin. A recommander
