From its a quite little street in the touristic and cultural part of the town, Sweet Home Lecce offers the ideal solution both to walk down the city centre, and to visit the neighborhoods, being easy to reach by car and disposing of a comfortable parking-slot nearby. Recently restructured, the apartment is composed of three levels, including a mezzanine, a ground floor and a tavern, and can host up to 5 persons: Two on the mezzanine (queen size bed), and 3 in the tavern (one double convertible sofa and one single beds). Each part of the apartment is furnished with taste and offers a high level of comfort, being equipped with air conditioning, television with satellite connection, Wi-fi Internet, shower with hydro massage, hair dryer and a furnished kitchen.

Apartment Sweet Home Lecce Town Centre is located at the entrance of the historic center of Lecce, where begins the pedestrian area of the city, so it is ideal for visiting on foot the center and to move quickly to the Adriatic and Ionian coasts.

A few steps from the Basilica of Santa Croce, from Piazza Duomo (400 m) and from Piazza Sant’Oronzo (300 m) in the historic center of Lecce.

The nearest beach (Torre Chianca) is about 7 km away and in less than 30 minutes you can reach nearly any location of the Adriatic and Ionian coasts, as Porto Cesareo (20 km), Torre dell’Orso (20 km), Gallipoli (30 km) and Otranto (30 km).

Excellent location and very spacious

  • 5 of 5

A lovely and very well appointed apartment in the historic centre, only a few minutes walk from the centre with all the bars, cafes and sights. Everything you could need was in the apartment, all very clean and even some welcoming food and drink. Giovanni was most helpful on directions, greeting us, explaining how everything worked (listen very carefully) and giving us tips on where to go, what to see and what beaches are good, depending on the weather/wind! He couldn't be more helpful.

Plenty of space, with a good dining area, a nice lounge, good kitchen, great bathroom (shower was good), upstairs bedroom was lovely with much needed air-con (use the spiral staircase carefully) and a very spacious cellar with a big table and more sofas/beds.

Only downsides a) was parking was a couple of streets away, but Giovanni again advised us where to park for the best rates (2-3 Euros per day, take lots of coins if you can) b) Not a lot of outside space, but you are in the centre of town, so we often sat outside a local, friendly cafe in the glorious sunshine (it was hot, averaging 35+) reading etc.

In summary, a great location and a good base for exploring the heel of Italy.

Highly recommended.

Sopra tutto !

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in Giovanni,s apartment for a week in may 2017. Giovanni was the most helpful owner out of all our stays in Italy.Apartment was a 10 minute walk walk to centre of Old Town,but be warned, have a street map and the full apartment address with you as its very easy to get lost.Best thing is to find way to Porto Napoli as most italians will be able to direct you there,and its a couple of minutes from apartment. Another tip is when Giovanni tells you about the tv,s,Heating,window operations,Hot water etc write it all down as its easy to forget. Lecce is beautiful and a joy to just amble round the labrynth of streets,find a nice cafe/bar,sit outside and watch the world go by. We ventured to Gallipoli and Otranto and enjoyed the Beaches and old towns( also the rickety old trains to get you there ! Apartment was fine although the spiral staircase was a bit of a challenge if you wanted to go in the night! All in all Lecce is a must see town Very Quaint ,clean but with a vibrant nightlife not just for youngsters but also OAP,,slike us!

Perfect property for enjoying the historic centre of Lecce

  • 5 of 5

This is a great flat to stay in. It is located inside the old city with its must see churches, beautiful architecture and Roman ruins. The flat is situated in the more residential side rather than the touristy bit of Lecce. It gives you a real feel for the town and its people. Geovanni cannot be a more gracious and helpful host and speaks good English. He suggests some great restaurants and bars and helps you to enjoy your stay. There are local shops to get the basics and great restaurants and bars five minutes from the flat. The flat itself is very clean, well laid out and maintained, with a comfortable open plan bedroom above the sitting room area or if you prefer there are fold out beds in the basement. There are two dining areas as well as a little breakfast table and a step in shower, bathroom with bidet. It has loads of room to move around in. If you want to make your own meals, it has a cooker and fridge and plenty of cutlery and dishes. There are TVs in the bedroom, sitting room and basement areas. The neighbours seem very friendly and if you like cats, there are some local characters wandering around that love the occasional treat and provide entertainment. It is also a very safe area. In fact Lecce overall is very friendly. You could almost eat off the pavement it is so clean. The fantastic local wine and olive oil and amazing portions of food in the restaurants, reasonably priced, will tempt you to come back for more. I have to thank the brothers who own my local restaurant in Fulham, Pizzica, and come from Lecce for their recommendation to visit this "Florence of the South". Otherwise I would never have found this hidden gem. With beaches 20 minutes away what more could you ask for. Highly recommended.

The Key to Enjoying Lecce

  • 5 of 5

We rented Sweet Home Lecce for a week in April of 2016 and spent time exploring Lecce and the surrounding country side. The apartment is well situated for both, being on the edge of the old town with reasonably priced parking near-by. We walked everywhere easily from the apartment. It is very comfortable for Anne and I and would also suit a family.

Giovanni is a very generous and knowledgeable host He picked us up at the train station, helped with a rental car and offered good advice on shopping, bars, restaurants and sites to visit in Lecce and in the surrounding region.

Thanks again for the extra effort Giovanni!

Best location ever!

  • 5 of 5

Giovanni's apartment on the sweetest little street in old Lecce was amazing. It was very, very large so we could spread out and relax after spending 10 days in small hotel rooms. We walked only minutes for Cappuccino, great shopping, and fabulous restaurants and wine bars. And Giovanni had a wealth of information to give us upon arrival. We rented a car so we could visit the many wonderful small towns of Puglia but were always happy to come back to our base "home" to regroup and start again the next day.

An elegant restful haven

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful beautiful space! Giovanni is a warm an generous host, and the apartment is situated beautifully on the edge of the old town. We walked everywhere and were not disappointed by Giovanni's many restaurant recommendations! The apartment is very comfortable, and completely equipped, and the groined vaulted ceiling is a thing to behold. We will no doubt return! Mille gracie Giovanni!
