A wonderful start to our holiday

5 of 5
A friend and I recently stayed at Le Armelline, a beautiful apartment in the historic centre of Lecce, and would highly recommend it. The apartment is situated in a quiet location just off the main piazza and we were able to walk to all the main sites of interest and many excellent restaurants. Maurizio was the perfect host, he met us at the bus station when we arrived from Brindisi Airport via the Pugliairbus and very kindly took us back to the train station when we left. He made us very welcome and it was a perfect start to our journey round Puglia. Thank you, Maurizio, for all your kindness.
