Very big, comfortable and in an excellent location.

5 of 5
The flat entrance is located on the main road to the west of the old town. It is easy to find, with free parking in the road behind. The flat itself overlooks this more minor road and the gardens beyond. It is on the top floor and is very quiet. We were greeted by the owner's mother, who explained everything very clearly. The owner, Francesco, was very responsive and helpful to questions on email and text. There are food shops, a market and restaurants very close by.

Lovely property

5 of 5
We were very at home in this property, it was very clean, well maintained, beds were comfortable and overall we felt privileged to be staying in such a historic building and area of Lecce. Anna was always available to help us and in fact called a taxi for us on our last day and saw us off when we left. A first for us! The kitchen was bijoux but adequate but we never ceased to produce some lovely meals from it. Our small kitchen at home now feels too big! We were surrounded by lovely restaurants and wine bars We adored Lecce, the flat, sunning ourselves on the roof terrace and just absorbing the atmosphere. We can't wait to go back.

A fantastic quiet little house

5 of 5
We were met by Pepe and when we arrived the little wooden house was so cute but full of everything you needed. We we give some lovely wine which we opened on the first night and im not a fan of white wine but this was gorgeous. Some coffee, nibbles, fruit and tomatoes and we were given a full tour of the place by Pepe and Sumo. Everything in the house is fully thought through and the extra touches of the personalised towels sheets and even pillowcases was brilliant. The pool area is amazing and even though it was windy a few days you couldn't feel it when sun bathing. We had the best week and recommend the house and owners and beaches to anyone PS. Hope the black and white cat is ok he's so cute i wish i could have taken him home Thanks Pepe and Symo
