Tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood near the centre of Lecce, this charming apartment beautifully blends contemporary living with classic Salento architecture. Step inside and you'll find handcrafted ceramic tiles, exposed stone walls and high vaulted ceilings, giving this home plenty of charm and a natural ambience. The cosy breakfast area is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee and a home-cooked meal in the morning before heading out to explore the town. You'll be within easy distance of the magnificent Piazzo del Duomo here, a famous square housing a baroque cathedral considered by many to be the most beautiful building in the city. Many of the area's main craft shops, wine bars, markets and restaurants are all within walking distance of the apartment, should you fancy a little retail therapy or a taste of the local cuisine. When you get home after a day of wandering along the town's cobblestone lanes, head home to enjoy an evening drinking wine in the private courtyard.
