IMPRESSIVE TYPICAL HOUSE OF STONE IN THE CENTRE OF LECCE

Lecce City House Rental Photos and Description

Fascinating house with character, perfect for a holiday for a couple

The living area is located on the ground floor and consists of 1 master bedroom with 1 double bed, 1 dining room, 1 living room (with sofa bed), 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom, 2 WC (also with shower, a vegetable garden, and storage room. It has 2 entries.

My great grandfather bought this house to live with his family and to have a place to take up his favourite hobby: the terracotta. He was what we call in Lecce dialect a 'lu puparu,' and he created and painted by hand many types of statues, from saints to caricatures. He went to the vegetable garden with all his tools and materials, working on an old table (now restored and brought back into the living room) with the company of his imagination and a bottle of good red wine from Puglia!

This wonderful house dates back to the end of the seventeenth century and has been restored, keeping the walls with original exposed stones of Lecce and bringing back some of the floors of that period of time, with the original fixtures. The sculptures and walls of local stone embellish the charming environment, with splendid ceilings reaching 5 meters in height. The large spaces and the thick walls ensure a healthy and fresh living space. The furniture and equipment are high quality: a wrought-iron bed, a solid wood table, and marble floors at the kitchen.

This house offers everything: Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, heating system, LCD TV, washing machine, mosquito net, bicycles, and jewellery.

It is just a few steps from the historic centre of Lecce, reachable through the splendid arch of stone of Porta Napoli. You will find all services nearby: restaurants, pastries, bars, laundry, hardware store and many other shops.

Its history and location make this house the perfect place for a holiday in Salento.

A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN LOVELY LECCE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a magical month in Francesco's gorgeous apartment in the fantastic city of Lecce. We became part of the community and lived like locals - and we didn’t want to leave!

I was studying in Lecce for the month and the location was absolutely perfect - a few steps from the university and all the delights of the Centro Storico, with all the conveniences right on our doorstep - great delis, grocery stores, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. The apartment was quiet and calm but close to all the sights. Lecce is a small but lively city and you can walk everywhere from the apartment – the Duomo, Piazza Sant’Oronzo and Santa Croce were all just a few moments away. And with our bikes we could explore the city or arrive at any destination in no time.

Francesco’s apartment is beautifully and sympathetically decorated with Leccese sculpture, local art and lovely antique and contemporary furnishings. The original stone ceilings are very tall and simply beautiful. The apartment is fitted with everything you need for your stay, including a fast wifi connection (grazie Francesco!!). There is also a lovely little private courtyard for hanging laundry or enjoying a morning coffee in the sunshine.

But best of all was the support and help of Francesco, the proprietor. Even though we never met, Francesco truly went above and beyond to make our stay special and to help us with great suggestions. His warmth and genuine kindness came through his emails and messages, and I now consider him a friend. I can’t wait to go back to Italy to meet him! We did meet Annarita the caretaker, who was very helpful, friendly, efficient and available whenever we needed her. I can’t recommend Lecce and the apartment enough. All in all, it was an incredible experience and we look forward to returning. It holds a special place in our hearts.

Un appartamento bellissimo in un locale perfetto di uno delle citta’ piu’ belle d’Italia – e quindi del mondo! Non manca di nulla in quest’appartamento ben arredato – wifi, bici, e tutti i servizi di cui si ha bisogno, con un ambiente tranquillo e suggestivo. I negozi, gli alimentari, i bar, i ristoranti, e il bellissimo centro storico sono a due passi dalla tua porta. Ma sopratutto il servizio di Francesco e’ la cosa piu speciale. Lui e veramente simpatico. Io sono molto grata per la sua gentilezza e amicizia. Annarita e’ anche gentile e disponibile. Insomma, un’esperienza veramente indimenticabile.

Grazie Francesco, alla prossima volta!

VACANZA MERAVIGLIOSA!!

  • 5 of 5
Bè, che dire...una vacanza meravigliosa!!! La casa corrisponde in tutto e per tutto alle foto e alle descrizioni ed il proprietario è una persona fantastica, sempre disponibile e che ci ha riempiti di buoni consigli su dove andare, i posti da visitare e cosa mangiare! Sono stata a Lecce una settimana con il mio ragazzo ed è stata una vacanza perfetta grazie sopratutto al punto strategico e centrale in cui si trova la casa! E' vicinissima a Piazza Sant'Oronzo che è facilmente raggiungibile grazie alle biciclette messe a disposizione dal proprietario! A circa 15 minuti c'è la spiaggia di san cataldo che affaccia sull'Adriatico e a circa 30 minuti c'è. Gallipoli che affaccia sullo Ionio ed il mare è davvero spettacolare! Anche se di giorno ci muovevamo un po' per andare al mare, la sera se non ci andava di muoverci montavamo sulle bici e andavamo a fare un giretto al centro di Lecce che è sempre movimentato. Consiglio di comprare il giornale "Qui Salento" (costo 3,50 euro) in qualsiasi edicola e così si possono sapere tutti gli eventi (sagre, feste, concerti) del Salento! Se consiglio questa vacanza? ASSOLUTAMENTE SI!!! io stessa ho intenzione di ritornarci perchè la casa è meravigliosa ed il proprietario ancora di più! Ah e.....consiglio di assaggiare ASSOLUTAMENTE i famosi pasticciotti!!

SPLENDIDA E COMODISSIMA CASA VACANZE

  • 5 of 5
siamo stati in 4 comodissimi in questa splendida casa in pietra leccese situata a due passi dal centro storico, spendendo una cifra irrisoria visto il periodo e le comodità offerte.
molto fresca grazie alle spesse pareti raramente abbiamo usato il condizionatore in dotazione. a disposizione abbiamo trovato internet ad alta velocità e due biciclette.
la casa è completa di lenzuola asciugamani ed utensili da cucina.
a due passi si trovano tutti i servizi necessari: supermercati panetterie bar...
abbiamo sempre trovato posto per l'auto nelle vicinanze nonostante il periodo di alta stagione.
la consiglio vivamente a famiglie e gruppi di amici

Lecce is amazingly lively during the day and the evening. The city offers many art exhibitions outdoors and fascinating shops open until the evening. It is framed by the stunning Romanesque and Baroque works and illuminated at night in a suggestive way. You will find the joy of the people that walk through the streets of the centre. Lecce by night is a wonderful experience to have, hopefully with a trip to the sea.

In fact, this impressive house is located close to Porta Napoli, a wonderful starting point to walk along the famous historic centre of Lecce. A few steps away, you will find a breathtaking square of the Episcopal centre of Lecce, the incredible Piazza S'Oronzo, the Porta Rudiae, the Basilica of Santa Croce, and many other historic/artistic places of this lively city, with its amazing local shops. The area of Porta Napoli offers the possibility of a quiet stay with all comfort available, just a few steps away of experiencing the lively historic centre of the Lecce!

Staying at Lecce also means to be able to visit all the wonderful seaside resorts of Salento, whether on the Adriatic or the Ionian coast! Spoiled for choice: Torre dell'Orso (a must-see), Otranto, Santa Maria of Leuca, Gallipoli, Porto Cesareo, Porto Selvaggio, etc.! The very convenient San Cataldo is just 15 min away from Lecce.
