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.
We stayed in this apartment for 2 months and found it to be excellent for our needs. It is really well situated in the Centro of Lecce. The street is quiet with very little traffic, but within close walking distance to all the attractions of this great little city. Nearby are shops, a supermarket and places to get washing and dry cleaning done. All very handy. The rooms are exactly as shown in the photos. The loft bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed with some hanging space for clothes. The kitchen was just right for all our needs and we were able to cook our own meals during our stay without any problems. There is also a very nice lounge and dining area. The bathroom is large and the hot water is great. The wifi was fast and reliable. We did not need the downstairs 'tavern' but it would be useful for a family with children or for other occasional guests. It was quite cool while we were in Lecce and the apartment was very warm with heaters in all rooms. Since it is a terrace with another apartment above it is very well insulated. We had a car and Giovanni helped us with a monthly parking sticker (€40) for a safe parking spot in an area about 200 metres away from the apartment. This was really important to not have to worry about the car. Finally, I have to confirm what other guests have written about Giovanni. He is the perfect host; he was always available on viber to help with all our needs, responding immediately. In short, Giovanni goes way beyond expectations to make guests feel at home, both in his apartment, and in Lecce. It was great also to meet his really nice friends and share some drinks with them and have dinner in one of the many great restaurants in Lecce. Recommended.
Great location in the historic center but on a quiet street. The apartment was a good choice for the two of us. Giovani was very helpful, hospitable and generous with his time. Thank you Giovanni!
