My husband and I enjoyed feeling like ‘ex-patriates’ while staying in this beautiful, large apartment. We were able to tour all day and then stroll into town each evening for dinner. There are many interesting and beautiful towns within an easy drive, and we found Lecce to be a lively, ‘real’, Italian town with historical sites, lovely shops and a variety of restaurants, wine bars, and dining options. Hope you are there are a Sunday evening when locals and tourists alike enjoy a light dinner and strolling the streets. The owners are gracious and helpful and the apartment is beautifully maintained with two modern bathrooms and a roomy kitchen. We never actually cooked, but it Is nice that there is a dishwasher. I hand washed some laundry, but there is a small washing machine (no dryer) in a nice laundry room. For me, the only thing more I would have asked for is a coffee maker. There are nearby cafes for yummy cappuccinos, but I missed my morning coffee in the apartment (didn’t know how to use that Italian press.). We visited in early October and had great weather so we were able to use the rooftop garden a couple of times. We had a car which I strongly recommend for touring and we parked it in a nearby parking area for a weekly fee. The apartment is very conveniently located for a five-minute walk into town and to grocery stores. The living space is one floor up from the street, but since it is located on the corner of a fairly busy street there is occasional street noise; however, we never found it to be a problem. We enjoyed our stay very much.
The apartment is lovely, loads of character, very spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Fantastic location, very close to the main attractions and restaurants in Lecce's centro storico. Even though close to the centre it is on a quiet street so no noise problems. The owners are great, Luigi was easy to contact and his father and mother were very welcoming and helpful meeting us for check in and showing us where to park. A bottle of local wine and other supplies were left for us in the fridge and a voucher for morning coffee and pastry at a nearby cafe was a nice touch and much appreciated. Highly recommended, hopefully we'll make it back one day!
