                                                              Lovely welcome from Richard and Noirin. Villa is excellent - clean, large rooms and has everything one could need including aircon. Lovely pool and plenty of sun loungers. We had a great time here. We enjoyed picking the lemons and herbs for BBQs, the property is very private and well located for exploring Puglia.

                                                              Great apartment, wonderful management service

                                                              We were two couples staying in Lecce for just over a week. The flat is very comfortable for 4 people -- each bedroom was large and had its own bathroom. The kitchen is basic, but served our needs and is a great gathering spot. We were able to enjoy the occasional lunch outside on the terrace. The location of the flat in the historical centre meant that most sites were within easy walking distance. The manager, Nikolaos, provided extraordinary service - he showed us how everything worked, responded promptly to all of our requests, printed out our boarding passes, called the airline when we needed to verify a booking, arranged travel to the airport, and helped us with a car rental. It is worth taking a couple of day trips to explore the surrounding area.

                                                              We enjoyed a lovely week in Symo and Pepe's compact cottage. They gave us a warm welcome, and set us up with a tasty platter of treats and a bottle of wine to start our holiday off with a lovely lunch! The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, and we took Pepe's advice to shop at the local Mon Mark and nearby bakery. The drive into Lecce to find larger supermarkets was too stressful! Although the weather was not always great, we still found the sea warm enough for great swims. Our favourite beach was at Torre del Orzo, well worth the half hour drive down towards Ortranto. Many thanks, Symo and Pepe. Peter and Bridget from London, England.
