Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Diana is a real haven of calm. It is incredibly beautiful and because it only has a small number of apartments we often had the whole place, including the pool, to ourselves. It is very close to the historic part of Lecce which we found to be the most beautiful town we visited throughout our stay and so we went there very often for dinner, shopping etc.

A wonderful oasis in south Puglia

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 3) spent 5 nights at Villa Diana in early June 2011. The accommodation was great, lots of room, good cooking space. The pool and surrounds are great. We spent hours each day in the pool which is enormous, before heading off to explore the Salentina peninsula. It is close to Lecce by car. It is quiet so was perfect for us. We had been traveling for 8 weeks by then and were happy to have a break from the hustle and bustle of staying in towns. Diana and her husband made us feel very welcome.
