incredibly beautiful

  • Submitted: Jun 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2004
Villa Diana is a real haven of calm. It is incredibly beautiful and because it only has a small number of apartments we often had the whole place, including the pool, to ourselves. It is very close to the historic part of Lecce which we found to be the most beautiful town we visited throughout our stay and so we went there very often for dinner, shopping etc.

We absolutely loved our holiday here

  • Submitted: Jun 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2004
We absolutely loved our holiday here and the family were so welcoming. At first we were a bit surprised as the villa was further from Lecce than we expected (it's a 15 min drive)but the family were so great and Paulo let us use his scooter. I'd definitely recommend hiring a car. The accomodation is wonderful, we had a lovely stone house with a little kitchen all to ourselves. The nearby beaches are very pretty and Lecce is beautiful. The people are friendly, it's very reasonably priced and not packed with tourists. It was a very peaceful, happy holiday and we're definitely going back.

we intend to return

  • Submitted: Jun 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2004
This has to be one of the very best B+Bs we have ever stayed in. The only problem is with locating it. The first day we were met and escorted but after that we were having problems especially at night due to the peculiarities of the Italian road signage and the roadworks/ building going on around Lecce. Nevertheless we would thoroughly recommend Villa Diana - we intend to return

A wonderful house

  • Submitted: Jun 6, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2005
A wonderful house of our own set amidst a vineyard in a walled gardens - secluded, quiet in the early season and just perfect. Our hostess was very attentive and helpful but equally was happy to leave us to our selves. Breakfast was DIY but the larder was very well stocked. Any comparison with even the better English B&B is ludicrous - just heavenly - thanks very much Diana

very enjoyable nights at Villa Diana

  • Submitted: Jun 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2005
We spent 2 very enjoyable nights at Villa Diana during September 2005. Paolo was very welcoming and speaks excellent English. We stayed in one of two semi-detached, converted farm buildings, very similar to a French "gite" with full "mod cons" (TV, cooker, microwave, etc.). It is a very quiet and laid back place. There is an excellent, large, free-form swimming pool within the grounds which are extensive. You are surrounded by vines and fruit trees. We would recommend Villa Diana for a relaxing break. It is not cheap but we believe it offers good value for money. Although advertised as a B&B, it is really self catering accommodation where a DIY breakfast is provided. However, there is a good, family-run restaurant (no English spoken so be prepared) 2 minutes away just across the main road. Very reasonable and good quality. Lecce is lovely and full of interesting features. Otranto is not too far and worth a visit. A car is a must however.

The guests will be given the opportunity to enjoy the facilities of the estate: swimming pool with descending beaches and jacuzzi, dirt tennis court, equipped park, pine wood, orchard, barbecue, and much more…

Just a stone’s throw from the villa, you will find a typical country village with a high concentration of some of the best typical restaurants of the region and a riding club for an unforgettable ride.
