About

Enjoy our airy and spacious apartment in Lecce, the Florence of the South. Located on the second floor of a small baroque building in a pedestrian-only alley, it is seconds away from one of the most gorgeous baroque churches in town and 5 minutes walk from the city’s main piazza where you can enjoy free nightly events and bask in the multifaceted architectural landscape (ancient roman, 14th, 17th and 20th century all in one piazza!). Our house is very quiet and spacious. It has "pietra leccese" floors, warm rugs, an entry way with barrel-vaulted ceiling, and a kitchen with star-vaulted ceiling. It has a large and bright master bedroom, a cozy second bedroom, a large and airy bathroom with washing machine and a large study area with desk over the internal staircase. The stairs is closed off but, for an extra charge, it can be opened if you would like to add an extra bedroom with bathroom ensuite. Please refer to my link below for information about terms, conditions and long term stays. If you are traveling by car, it is best to park it outside the ancient walls (just a few minutes walk to our house, my assistant will show you were) on areas marked with white stripes (so you don't have to pay for parking). If you are car-less, the train station is 12 minute walk from our house. Convenient buses to key historical towns and to the beaches are less than 5 minute walking distance from where we are. If you drive, in 30 minutes you will be able to reach pristine beaches both on the Ionian and on the Adriatic sea. The type of shores are for all tastes: rocky, sandy, with dunes, in natural park areas, free public access and private (where you can rent an umbrella and lounge chairs). To visit the city of Lecce you will not need to take a bus: you can tour the ancient area on foot without effort or you can rent a bike if you like. At night, you will see many people strolling in the streets near our place, where there are lots of restaurants with tables outside in the warm season: but our house is tucked away in a quiet alley. If you come during religious holidays, you will be able to attend colorful and festive events such the Lecce's patron saint holiday "Sant'Oronzo" at the end of August. In the small towns around Lecce during the summer season you will be able to attend very interesting festivals, most times about food, and also about traditional customs. Come and relax in my tastefully decorated house while enjoying the culture and people of Salento!
