A Special Place in Puglia

  • 5 of 5
Le Armelline is a beautiful apartment on a side street in the charming baroque town of Lecce. Just a short walk from the main piazza, Le Armelline perfectly suited our needs.

Exquisitly furnished with both antique and modern pieces, the home has been renovated but retains several arched ceilings and touches of Lecce stone in its interior. It is also meticulously clean.

Entry to the apartment is through the bright and well-equipped kitchen which still has the vestiges of an ancient cistern in one corner. The large table is a great place to unwind and relax.

The two bedrooms on the main floor are generous in size with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom and a rear entry to a tiny, but lovely, courtyard. The second bedroom had two doors for privacy and a bathroom just across the hall. An additional small sleeping area is located in a loft in the rear of the home. A laundry room is located between the two bathrooms.

The town of Lecce is an architectural wonderland. Churches, restaurants, and shops are within easy walking distance of the apartment. Two restaurants that we particularly enjoyed were Feel Food and Osteria della Divina Provvidencia. A great place to unwind with coffee and fresh orange juice every morning and afternoon was Caffe della Lupa, a perfect place to sit and watch the daily "passeggiata."

Paola and Maurizio,our hosts, were gracious and helpful throughout our planning stages and after our arrival. They also arranged taxi services to and from the train station (grazie, Antonio) which was much appreciated.

Our hosts also greeted us with a basket full of goodies: coffee, Italian cookies, tarrali, and olive oil. Upon departure, they presented us with a handmade ceramic bowl in the same local pattern found in their kitchen - a wonderful memento of an unforgettable visit.

A perfect base

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Le Aremelline for the entire month of September as the start of our 3 month Italy trip. The apartment is really lovely and the location was ideal. Lecce is a beautiful city and everyday we discovered something new. As others have mentioned, the owners, Maurizio and Paola, and their lovely daughter Ci Ci are the best part. They are so considerate and accommodating, each request was responded to immediately. They are just delightful. The apartment is outfitted great, well maybe a few more knives would be good. During part of our stay we had friends come. It was a bit tight but we still loved it. Note that there is no living room, but the kitchen, bedrooms and baths are all spacious and there is a loft for a quiet get away. The weak WIFI was a bit of a challenge for us, but we found some good Internet cafés nearby. I just really enjoyed our entire time in Lecce and still dream about the beautiful domed ceiling in the bedroom!

Charming apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a week-long stay in Lecce and Le Aremelline. The apartment exceeded our expectations and was the perfect location for our visit.

Very recently renovated to a very high standard, the apartment has all the modern conveniences while retaining the lovely details of the original structure. It was spotlessly clean and all of the essentials are covered, too -- the beds were comfortable, the plumbing was all update and new, the kitchen well-stocked with utensils and cutlery. While the WiFi could have been stronger, we found a nearby cafe where we could Skype, send photos, etc.

The apartment is right in the heart of Lecce's historic center, so it's just steps from everything you want to see and do. The purpose of our visit was a week-long program at a local cooking school, so we didn't eat at many of the nearby restaurants. However, there seemed to be no shortage of great places to dine, as well as bars and cafes.

Last, but definitely not least, Maurizio and Paola, the owners, were absolutely wonderful. Their warm welcome and attentiveness during our stay were very much appreciated.

Having rented numerous times throughout Italy, this was one of the best rental experiences I've had. Would definitely stay at Le Armelline again.

Owner's Response: We thank so much our kind guests from New York City for choosing us, for their enthusiastic review on our apartment Le Armelline and for their beautiful words about me (Paola) and my husband Maurizio. We are so pleased they appreciated our apartment and our genuine “service concept”. In fact we are renting our property mainly for passion. We love the idea of hosting travelers from all over the world who come to our remote land to visit Lecce and Salento. We love to directly manage our small accommodation business, delivering a high quality service and taking care of all details. We like to get in touch with our guests and help them in discovering the beauty of our land and town, our traditions and our culture of hospitality: our first wish is to make them feel happy about choosing our home and our land for their holidays. In short, we like to feel ourselves such as small ambassadors of Lecce and Salento. We started renting in august 2012 and got an amazing success, with guests from all over the world, all happy and satisfied: the availability section and the review section bear witness of that success. Our two lovely guests from NY City (now excellent Italian cooks too) were very nice, kind and fair. We really hope to meet them again, maybe in NY City, who knows ? Just about the power of our free WiFi Internet connection, we would say that it delivered a high speed traffic untill 10 GB every 30 days: unfortunately it happened that the weekly stay of our guests coincided with the last days of the high speed period. We apologize: now we have improved the power until 15 GB every 30 days. Thank you Jane !

Lovely home and amazing destination!

  • 5 of 5
My family (wife, aunt, mother and myself) stayed at L'armelline for 14 days and we loved it! The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The location is excellent, in the historical center and close to the most interesting places. Lecce is a beautiful town with great architecture and good food.
But the best part of the experience were the owner, Paola and Maurizio, who were very welcoming and helpful in every aspect. Paola even helped us organized a pastry cooking class which was an amazing and fun experience for the entire family.
We wholeheartedly recommend L'armelline to anyone interested in experiencing Salento or Puglia!

Un posto molto simpatico

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is really special and makes an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful Baroque city. It is not only situated in the historic centre but forms a part of it; as the photos reveal – and they do not lie - it is made of the same honey coloured stone and breathes the same sympathetic ambience. Both apartment and city are delightful places to be.
The owners, Maurizio and Paola, have restored the apartment with loving care and their warm hospitality made us feel like friends rather than guests. Maurizio met us on the outskirts and guided us in, and on arrival were shown around by Paola, discovering to our surprise a generous welcome pack of two good bottles of Salento wine, olive oil, an assortment of local sweetmeats and pastries, with beer and water in the fridge.
The apartment was a pleasure to be in with beautifully laundered sheets and towels, comfortable beds, and individual packs of soap and shampoo in the bathrooms. It was incredibly spacious and everything was spotlessly clean. In a way, though, the apartment and its owners are all of a piece - you feel something special in the very first email and this unfolds into a total experience. By the time you arrive, you are welcomed as a person, not a generic guest, and perhaps it is this that makes the experience unique. In the North of Italy they say that the South is another country; if that is so, then Maurizio is a true ambassador of this ‘other country’ and he made us want to return, and experience more of it.
