Our stay in Gianluca's apartment was sincerely a pleasure in all aspects. Gianluca is a welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly and discreet host who did everything to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We are experienced, mature travelers and have had several airbnb experiences. We consider this apartment to be one of our more pleasant ones. It is even better than it appears in the photos: it is easy to find, very comfortable, spacious, fully equipped and decorated tastefully (Gianluca tells us his architect friend is to blame!); located within the old city but away from noise and traffic. I recommend it highly and would not hesitate staying there again. Thank you Gianluca for making our 3-day-stay so pleasant!
We had such a lovely stay at Gianluca and Ivana's apartment. It was one of the highlights of our our trip, so much so that on the last afternoon we decided to stay at the apartment and chill out.
The apartment itself is exactly as you see in the pictures, beautiful, homely, airy and fresh, and they clearly take a lot of pride in maintaining the flat at this high standard. It's a quiet street but central too, so at nights you sleep well and in the day, you can pop back really easily from the historical centre of Lecce.
Our host Gianluca was hospitable and polite, really went beyond his duty as a host in looking after us. For example, giving us lifts, a bottle of wine, always being on his phone in case of any questions we had e.g. recommending a lovely close-by restaurant called La Vie to sample local southern Italian food in a family run restaurant.
We would love to stay here again one day. 10 out of 10.
We were made to feel very welcome by Gianluca when we arrived at his delightful home. The house is most attractive made so by the clever mix of old and new furnishings.
The interior stone work is beautiful. Gianluca gave us very helpful advice for sightseeing and restaurants. We walked everywhere. We would recommend his place .
Gianluca è stato gentilissimo con noi, co ha aiutato con tutte le cose richieste e pure ci ha datto il benvenuto con una buona botiglia di vino!la casa era meravigliosa ed in una zona tranquila e vicinissima al centro.bella sperienza!
As a frequent Lecce visitor, i found this place centrally located and both Gianluca and Ivana are welcoming
Gianluca met us at the beautiful apartment within five minutes of our arrival. He was an amazingly friendly, helpful host with answers to all of our questions. We spent two nights in this gorgeous little town and enjoyed every moment of our time time in the apartment. It is beautiful, comfortable and with all the necessities of home. The location is perfect for exploring the entire area, on foot. Once you park your car, leave it! We will be back in Lecce one day and when we do, we will be in touch with Gianluca to see if we may stay at his apartment again!
shelly and her husband are two very interesting people, you can start chatting with them and to lost pleasantly the sense of time .. hope to see you again! un abbraccio da Lecce.
L’host: disponibilissimo da subito e per tutto il soggiorno, ci ha forniti di informazioni e piantine della città per orientarci e rendere più piacevole possibile il soggiorno. Di fronte ad un problema serio si è mostrato super-disponibile, intervenendo prontamente e offrendoci un rimborso parziale qualora non fossimo stati soddisfatti della soluzione (v. seguito). Check-in e check-out facilissimi e senza intoppi.
La casa: molto bella, accogliente e perfettamente piazzata nelle vicinanze di… TUTTO! Ristrutturata e arredata con gusto, impossibile che non piaccia. Il letto potrebbe essere più comodo (2 materassi uniti non proprio morbidi), ma niente di tremendo.
I problemi: al nostro arrivo era tiepida, con un clima pienamente invernale all’esterno (sfortuna!), e nonostante i condizionatori accesi tutta la notte non c’è stato verso che si scaldasse fino al mattino. Abbiamo dovuto dormire quasi vestiti la prima notte, siamo stati bene la seconda. Avvisato Gianluca, ha verificato che i condizionatori stessero funzionando, ci ha forniti di extra piumone (che non abbiamo poi nemmeno usato), e ci ha offerto di rimborsarci la seconda notte se avessimo preferito andare via. La mattina della partenza l’acqua calda è finita troppo presto (c’è lo scaldabagno).
In generale: la casa è a due passi (DUE!) da tutto, p.zza S.Oronzo, Duomo, S.Croce, tutto. 10 mesi all’anno sarebbe probabilmente perfetta, per i rimanenti 2 andrebbe riscaldata meglio, ma Gianluca è molto attento e disponibile, si vede che tiene ai suoi ospiti. E’ molto probabile che torneremo.
Everything was perfectly as described and we had a pleasant stay.
This apartment is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, comfortable, and well-equipped. It is a quick and easy walk to see the sights of Lecce. We easily found a parking spot in front of the apartment, and the hosts were very helpful and responsive. Loved this apartment!
Great place within easy walking distance to everything you need. Gianluca went out of his way to make us feel welcome and even arranged an early lunch at a trattoria for his hungry, travel tired guests. Bottom line, nice clean place at a great price.
Good guest ,
see you next time
