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!

A great apartment in a fantastic city

  • 5 of 5

We used this apartment for a 2 week stay. This is a great property if you want to visit the beautiful city of Lecce. Everything was as described and the owner Giovanni couldn't have done more to welcome us, including a short walk around the city. The location is great and most of the major sights are within a 10 min walk, so if your thinking of visiting Lecce (and you should) then this property is ideal

Quite lovely

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in historical Lecce was superb. It was clean, well furnished and had all the amenities. We were able to walk to the restaurants, cafes and shops easily. Giovanni the owner was extremely helpful with recommendations of restaurants, day trips and anything else we needed. Any requests was followed up immediately and Giovanni made sure all was okay. I would recommend this apartment to all our friends or relatives. A real gem!!
