A beautiful apartment in lovely Lecce!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a magical month in Francesco's gorgeous apartment in the fantastic city of Lecce. We became part of the community and lived like locals - and we didn’t want to leave!

I was studying in Lecce for the month and the location was absolutely perfect - a few steps from the university and all the delights of the Centro Storico, with all the conveniences right on our doorstep - great delis, grocery stores, shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. The apartment was quiet and calm but close to all the sights. Lecce is a small but lively city and you can walk everywhere from the apartment – the Duomo, Piazza Sant’Oronzo and Santa Croce were all just a few moments away. And with our bikes we could explore the city or arrive at any destination in no time.

Francesco’s apartment is beautifully and sympathetically decorated with Leccese sculpture, local art and lovely antique and contemporary furnishings. The original stone ceilings are very tall and simply beautiful. The apartment is fitted with everything you need for your stay, including a fast wifi connection (grazie Francesco!!). There is also a lovely little private courtyard for hanging laundry or enjoying a morning coffee in the sunshine.

But best of all was the support and help of Francesco, the proprietor. Even though we never met, Francesco truly went above and beyond to make our stay special and to help us with great suggestions. His warmth and genuine kindness came through his emails and messages, and I now consider him a friend. I can’t wait to go back to Italy to meet him! We did meet Annarita the caretaker, who was very helpful, friendly, efficient and available whenever we needed her. I can’t recommend Lecce and the apartment enough. All in all, it was an incredible experience and we look forward to returning. It holds a special place in our hearts.

Un appartamento bellissimo in un locale perfetto di uno delle citta’ piu’ belle d’Italia – e quindi del mondo! Non manca di nulla in quest’appartamento ben arredato – wifi, bici, e tutti i servizi di cui si ha bisogno, con un ambiente tranquillo e suggestivo. I negozi, gli alimentari, i bar, i ristoranti, e il bellissimo centro storico sono a due passi dalla tua porta. Ma sopratutto il servizio di Francesco e’ la cosa piu speciale. Lui e veramente simpatico. Io sono molto grata per la sua gentilezza e amicizia. Annarita e’ anche gentile e disponibile. Insomma, un’esperienza veramente indimenticabile.

Grazie Francesco, alla prossima volta!

Superbe appartement typique en plein centre

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans ce magnifique appartement en plein centre de Lecce.

Pour commencer, l'appartement est très bien situé, à deux pas d'une des portes (porta Napoli), permettant d’accéder rapidement au centre historique de Lecce. De nombreux commerces se trouvent à proximité (supermarché, bars, restaurant, boulangerie, épicerie ouverte tard le soir etc..).

Concernant l'appartement, il est d'une belle architecture, avec des murs en pierre et de haut plafonds, ce qui lui donne beaucoup de charme.

Il est spacieux, et possède tous les équipements nécessaires pour passer un agréable séjour. La chambre principale dispose de la climatisation, ce qui nous a permis d'affronter un épisode caniculaire ce mois d’août sans souffrir de la chaleur, malgré des températures extérieures proches des 40 degrés.

La literie est confortable, et le propriétaire met à disposition le linge de maison ainsi que les serviettes de toilette et de plage.

Enfin pour finir le propriétaire est très sympathique, il est très réactif et nous a donné de très bons conseils concernant notre séjour à Lecce.

Nous étions un couple avec un enfant de 3 ans, et nous recommandons fortement ce logement, nous y retournerons sans hesiter.

... semplicemente SUPER!! Vacanza stupenda con la famiglia in questa bellissima casa, molto caratteristica e veramente funzionale. Il centro di Lecce, raggiungibile in pochi minuti a piedi è una continua scoperta di luoghi da visitare e locali dove assaggiare tutte le specialità del Salento. Simpaticissimi e disponibilissimi Patrizia e Francesco, il proprietario, sempre pronti in ogni momento a fornirci qualsiasi tipo di info, dalle spiagge incantevoli, ai posti dove mangiare, i negozi, le sagre paesane... Noi siamo stati benissimo ed abbiamo trascorso una vacanza indimenticabile! Ci torneremo sicuramente!! Assolutamente consigliata!

Michela e famiglia.

Tutto perfetto!!

  • 5 of 5

Soggiorno di coppia nell'ultima settimana di Giugno, vacanza superlativa grazie anche a questa casa meravigliosa. Francesco e Patrizia disponibili e gentilissimi sempre; alla casa non mancava nulla: bella, arredata con stile e qualità, accogliente, spaziosa, fresca, pulita, a due passi dal centro. Splendidi i soffitti a volta in pietra leccese e carparo. Al suo interno oltre a servizi utilissimi come la lavatrice e i detersivi annessi, l'aria condizionata (mai accesa), wifi, ampio spazio esterno con doccia, ci sono teli mare, ombrellone, sdraio, due biciclette (mai usate dato la vicinanza al centro), set di asciugamani, la cucina è ben fornita di stoviglie e elementi essenziali (caffe, sale, zucchero).

La consiglieremo assolutamente!

Una vacanza meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

La scelta non poteva essere migliore, la casa è fantastica, impeccabile, perfetta, corrisponde nei minimi particolari alla descrizione fatta.

Il fascino che la contraddistingue ci ha fatto assaporare il piacere di viverla: con i suoi soffitti alti in pietra chiara, l'arredo e gli accessori ricercati.

Abbiamo trascorso una vacanza meravigliosa, tra mare e visite alla città, che si trova davvero a due passi dall'abitazione.

L'accoglienza ricevuta dai proprietari ci ha fatto sentire come a CASA. La loro disponibilità e gentilezza hanno reso questa nostra vacanza ancora più indimenticabile.

Grazie, torneremo sicuramente!!!

Owner's Response: Molte grazie E., siamo felicissimi che tutto vi sia piaciuto! Lecce è speciale e rappresenta con fascino tutta la vivacità e la bellezza del Salento. La casa fa parte di quel contesto da più di un secolo, perciò abbiamo cercato in ogni modo di conservarne "l'anima" e siamo onorati che ne abbiate colto appieno i dettagli. È un piacere sapere che la vacanza vi sia piaciuta molto ed è stato un piacere conoscervi. Vi ringrazio di nuovo per la grandissima gentilezza ed educazione e per la grande cura verso la casa. Vi auguriamo le cose migliori e vi mandiamo un grosso salutone! Grazie ancora. Francesco

San Cataldo
Car: recommended

Lecce is amazingly lively during the day and the evening. The city offers many art exhibitions outdoors and fascinating shops open until the evening. It is framed by the stunning Romanesque and Baroque works and illuminated at night in a suggestive way. You will find the joy of the people that walk through the streets of the centre. Lecce by night is a wonderful experience to have, hopefully with a trip to the sea.

In fact, this impressive house is located close to Porta Napoli, a wonderful starting point to walk along the famous historic centre of Lecce. A few steps away, you will find a breathtaking square of the Episcopal centre of Lecce, the incredible Piazza S'Oronzo, the Porta Rudiae, the Basilica of Santa Croce, and many other historic/artistic places of this lively city, with its amazing local shops. The area of Porta Napoli offers the possibility of a quiet stay with all comfort available, just a few steps away of experiencing the lively historic centre of the Lecce!

Staying at Lecce also means to be able to visit all the wonderful seaside resorts of Salento, whether on the Adriatic or the Ionian coast! Spoiled for choice: Torre dell'Orso (a must-see), Otranto, Santa Maria of Leuca, Gallipoli, Porto Cesareo, Porto Selvaggio, etc.! The very convenient San Cataldo is just 15 min away from Lecce.
