Giovanni could not have been more helpful, he guided us into the city and was ready even though we changed the time twice. He booked us 2 restaurants in advance and drove us to one of them. The apartment was as it appeared in the photos and was clean and well equipped. Great location for walking round the old town and surprisingly quiet.
Very Comfortable stay at Lecce!
From the beginning to the end Giovanni is the perfect host you can ever imagine. During the planning stage he responded all of our questions on very timely manner and helped us even more than we asked. He welcomed us at the train station and guide us to our sweet apartment. The home is located in a very convenient spot at the heart of Lecce just steps away from the center but at the same time very peaceful. Being at Lecce is great but coming back to "home" every night is the sweetest part. The house was very clean including the bathroom and the kitchen. Clean towels and sheets are prepared for our arrival just came from dry cleaning. Kitchen with all the equipment you need and a small lovely court at the back. For bigger groups there is an another additional room with a daybed, tv and a big table downstairs. First day Giovanni gave us tips and showed us THE places on the map including lecce and all the Puglia region- he is like a Four Seasons concierge- I definitely recommend Giovanni's place for the visitors of Lecce. And we'll definitely come back! ipek
Our stay at Giovanni's apartment was absolutely perfect. It is situated in the historic part of Lecce and was everything we imagined it to be. The apartment was accurately depicted in the photos and everything worked properly, was clean, and he even had some breakfast snacks for us! Clean bed linens and bath towels were provided, along with all of the little comforts we take for granted--basic seasonings in the kitchen, etc. The apartment is fully furnished so all we had to do was show up and enjoy.
Since the apartment is in a historic area, we were not allowed to park our car at the home. Instead, there is a safe parking area abut a five minute walk away; it is lit and has security cameras 24/7. Our car was fine the whole weekend (we live in Naples so were initially concerned about security...). However, we were permitted to drive up to the apartment to load and then unload our bags which was quite convenient.
We spent a day and a half walking around Lecce, enjoying the old city, shopping, and just looking around. It was fantastic.
Giovanni's communication was perfect. He always responded quickly and speaks great English (unfortunately we speak very little Italian). He instructed us to pull into a major hotel parking lot right inside of Lecce and call him once we arrived, and he met us in five minutes and we followed him to the apartment. This was great because we didn't have to worry about driving down a restricted road or anything--and he helped us unload our bags, too. Giovanni gave us great restaurant recommendations to make our stay even more enjoyable. Great host!
Giovanni's apartment is highly recommended--we would definitely stay their again.
Highly recommended! If you want to stay in Lecce, with all the comforts of a cozy home-away-from-home, this is the place. In top location, you can walk to all bars and restaurants in the old town. Very spacious place with different ambiances. Giovanni responded to our last minute request and provided all comforts and advice.
This place is charming as the name! We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful house and meeting Giovanni and his friends. He was such a great host, very friendly and available, trying to helping us and making of our stay a memorable time.
The house has everything to have a confortable stay and is very well located in the historical center of Lecce, close to one of the main doors of the city so we could also access by car.
We wish to come back soon!! Definitely, very recommended!!
We stayed 5 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is well-equipped and located perfectly in a quiet street but on walking distance to all interesting parts of the town. Lecce is a friendly and easy city to live in. The people are gentle, helpful and kind. The public transport facilities (train and buses) are well organised, also to and from the places along the coasts. A good alternative to get around is to rent a bike and get some exercise which we needed as the food is delicious. Giovanni is there when you need him, he is quick and friendly.
