Central and as beautifull as it is on the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We stay a family of 5 at Maurizio and Paola place and had a very good time.

The flat is central location and 2-3 minutes walks from grand plaza, restaurants, shopping streets, very handy

The flat is nice and quiet, and is in the same states as the picture are showing it

There is many travel books in English, French and Italian to plan your visits around

We recommend Maurizio and Paola flat for a nice stay in Lecce

Superb apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We thought this apartment would be very good even before we arrived but it exceeded our expectations. It was spotlessly clean and everything was in perfect running order. Moreover absolutely everything was supplied so we didn't need to purchase anything, as so often occurs with other apartments. We also very much appreciated the basket of goodies supplied.

Maurizio was the perfect host: welcoming, warm and generous, never intrusive despite being a neighbour, yet always promptly answering my text messages & phone calls and being so helpful with restaurant recommendations, arranging a taxi etc. This promptness and helpfulness was very much evident in our communication before booking the apartment.

The apartment's location was perfect to see the sights of beautiful Lecce and the delights of the old town are all within easy walking distance.

We've been lucky enough to stay in about 50 apartments in half a dozen European countries over the last 8 years and this one was quite outstanding.

I give it my highest possible recommendation.

Great apartment in a perfect location in the old Lecce

  • 5 of 5

Maurizio and Paola's apartment was perfect for us, 2 couples, travelling through the south of Italy. It was spotlessly clean and the owners were very thoughtful in leaving us a welcome basket. They also provided us with beach towels which was fantastic for our travels along the coast of Salento. The apartment is located very centrally in old Lecce and is accurately presented in the photos and descriptions. A wonderful find for us and thank you Maurizio and Paola for hosting us in Lecce.

Amazing in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Lecce in this beautiful apartment and city was truly magical. We spent three weeks here and we loved everything about it including our wonderful hosts. They helped up organize our 25year anniversary party. They participated in letting off lanterns in honor of our son's death. We felt loved, cared for, and felt as if we were family. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, and well appointed. A dream come true in the heart of Puglia. We will treasure our time for the rest of our lives. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

Perfect Place to Stay in Lecce

  • 5 of 5

Le Armelline was the perfect place for us to stay in Lecce. It is in the heart of the old city on a quiet street. The apartment has been carefully renovated to keep the arched ceilings and exposed stone but is equipped with all the modern accessories. There is no need for a car since restaurants and sites are all within walking distance as is a wonderful fresh market. The kitchen is well equipped and since we like to cook, it was a wonderful alternative to eating out every meal. The master has an ensuite bath and the other bath is close to the second bedroom so would be suitable for two couples. There is also a small loft with a futon. Maurizio and Paola were extremely gracious, helping us with restaurant choices, suggested drives outside Lecce and responded to any questions or requests we had immediately. There is a small patio off the bedroom that is a lovely place to have morning tea or coffee. I would highly recommend Le Armelline to anyone visiting Lecce. It is the perfect place to stay.

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.
