About the property

"Le Armelline" is a nice and comfortable holiday apartment located in the heart of the historical center of Lecce, in the very silent "Court of Armelline", just 50 meters from the ancient main street, near the beautiful church of St. Irene, historically regarded as the exact center the ancient city.

Due to its unique location, "Le Armelline" is the ideal place to spend a pleasant stay literally surrounded by the beauty and peaceful vitality of the historic center of Lecce, in direct contact with its churches, alleys, courts, palaces , the archaeological monuments, craft shops, typical restaurants and cafes. All places of cultural and tourist interest of the old town and of its lively night life can be found in close proximity of the apartment and can be easily reached in a few minutes stroll.

"Le Armelline" is also a good choice to visit and discover the Salento: you can leave every day from your “basis” in Lecce for a different tour to the beautiful near places of the Salento coast (Otranto, Santa Cesarea, Castro, Leuca, Gallipoli, Porto Cesareo ...), or to the beautiful towns and villages of the hinterland (Acaya, Galatina, the picturesque villages of “Salento Greece” and Cape Leuca, ...), to return in the evening to your comfortable and nice home in the heart of the "capital city" of Salento.

The house is a typical building of XVIII century with beautiful vaulted ceilings in all the rooms, recently renovated, furnished in a fresh "minimal chic" style in which contemporary and old style are blended.

Wonderful location, superb hosts

  • 4 of 5

We were impressed by the beautiful apartment with its great high vaulted ceilings ...and the well in the kitchen, yes a well. The property was very clean and while we were there the towels and sheets were changed regularly. Maurizio and Paola were so helpful and a welcome pack was there to greet us. They also arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport. They are very reliable hosts. The apartment is very central so it was not possible to park the car outside but Maurizio showed us a secure carpark (you have to pay) a 5 min brisk walk away. It is possible to park the car outside the apartment for luggage and shopping dropoffs. The location was good, just a few minutes walk to be in the centre of beautiful Lecce. Unfortunately we couldn't sit outside in the courtyard as it was too cool and the sun never reached the courtyard but maybe it's different in the summer, nor was there a lounge area, but that wasn't a problem. We would recommend this place.

"The apartment is wonderf...

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment is wonderful. It is large, comfortable, roomy, very clean and the owners have also fill it with a nice decoration that combines tradition and modernity. The small courtyard in one of the rooms is an awesome place, and the situation of the apartment in the city is completely unbeatable. There is no problem, either access by car, because being in the historic center of the city we imagine that it would not be easy or comfortable reach him driving, but actually can be done without problems. Not uncomfortable at all.

Owners are very friendly and attentiv. They were very caring, even with small details. They prepared our arrival leaving the essentials in the kitchen for the first day (water, coffee,some snack, etc). Heating works perfectly in all rooms, and in the kitchen you will found everything you need to cook. The small laundry-room is fantastic, and also other small but important details like internet wi-fi connection, or the books, guides and maps that you can use. So wonderfull! It is a perfect apartment, and we enjoyed it a lot. I recommend this apartment. It is just perfect!

El apartamento es maravilloso y su situación es inmejorable en pleno centro histórico, accesible incluso en coche para no caminar con las maletas. Práctico, grande, limpio... Todo está muy bien organizado y pensado. Desde la fantástica y sencilla decoración que combina modernidad y tradición, hasta la comodidad. Destacaría la pequeña lavandería con lavadora, tendal, pileta y todo lo que puedas necesitar. O el patio al que se accede desde una de las habitaciones, que es maravilloso. Las camas, las habitaciones son muy confortables (y los dos baños!), y aunque era invierno la calefacción funcionó fantásticamente. Y tampoco se han olvidado los propietarios de detalles como la tv. por satélite (nos comimos las uvas de nochevieja con TVE!!!), la conexión wifi a internet, y todos los utensilios disponebles en la cocina, o las muchas guías, mapas y libros que hay a disposición de los inquilinos.

Los dueños son maravillosos. Amables, preocupados y muy tranquilos. Nos recibieron para mostrarnos el lugar, y nos obsequiaron con lo esencial para el primer día (agua, café, unos dulces para el desayuno...). Cuidan mucho su apartamento, la limpieza y tratan muy bien a sus huéspedes. Muy recomendable en todos los sentidos."

Notre séjour au Corte de Armelline

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu de la part de nos hôtes, Paola et Maurizio, un accueil des plus chaleureux : gentils, serviables, disponibles tout au long de ce séjour. Des petites douceurs nous attendaient à notre arrivée et nous avons même eu droit à un petit cadeau au moment du départ. L'appartement est très spacieux et situé au cœur de la vieille ville de Lecce. Vraiment une très bonne adresse pour visiter cette belle région du Salento.

Lo mejor de Lecce

  • 5 of 5

El sur tambien existe, excelente lugar. Hermoso departamento con todo el confort y la amabilidad de sus propietarios. El estacionamiento queda a tres cuadras, esto no incide en la eleccion. Se lo recomendaria a quien más yo aprecie
