The apartment was as described in a lovely old building right in the centre of Lecce . The location is perfect , the historic centre is a 5 minute walk and there are plenty of local cafes and shops within walking distance . Any problems were sorted out quickly with Rita . This apartment is in a fantastic location to explore historic Lecce...we hired a car for the 2 weeks and explored all the local beaches which the kids loved . I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking to spend time in Lecce and Puglia . Location is perfect .

The pool is wonderful with shady areas to keep the children cool. The outside space is excellent for families with children as space to play away from the pool and a large covered area to escape from the sun. The villa itself is well maintained and layout worked well for us as 2 families. When the heat became too much in the villa the air con was excellent at rapidly cooling either upstairs or downstairs. The local area was refreshingly non commercial! During siesta time there is nowhere to eat as locals close down but once you get into the habit this is perfectly workable. The local restaurants close to th villa had great food and atmosphere and the 2 minute walk to the bakery every morning was perfect for croissants! We didn't use the beach by the villa on beach days but looked great! We drove 5 mins to the next village where the man made enclaves worked for us with littlies as water nice and shallow. Richard and Noirin were great with helping us get the most from our stay both before and during. Excellent hosts - couldn't have asked for better, always on hand when needed.

It is a beautiful apartment, very spacious with 3 air conditioned bedrooms and very well equipped. We paid a little extra for the rooftop terrace, and we loved having drinks and casual meals up there and watching the sunsets. It's a terrific location, just outside one of the City gates, and very close to the indoor market and parking spaces. Maurizio was so helpful, both before our visit and when we arrived. We would love to return!
