B/B in a house and attic in 16th cent. historic Lecce



Updated: 13-Aug-2016
B&B in house with garden, two rooms, one attic, three bathrooms, living

La "Vedetta" B&B has one double room, a single room and a small house with kitchen and bathroom for two people (and a child bed) on the terrace. It's advisable to talk to the owner before booking, to make sure which and if room/attic is available each time. The double room on the first floor has a view on the garden, equipped with table and chairs. The single room upstairs has a private bathroom and a vaulted ceiling. The apartment on the terrace has a bedroom / living room, full kitchen and private bathroom, air conditioning, heating, TV and a large terrace with a breathtaking view over the roofs and bell towers of the city, where you can have breakfast in spring/summer.

The rooms are decorated with charm and with a clever mix of old and new: the room on the first floor in particular has a romantic view of the garden through a scenic balcony.

The rooms have private bathrooms, TV, air conditioning and heating.

For guests looking for an accomadotian in Lecce, "la Vedetta" offers a truly magnificent stay, including a beautifully furnished sitting area for guests. In summer the garden is an ideal place to read or just relax. The neighborhood - probably the city's oldest - is calm and quiet and close to the very center of the city, to its traditional restaurants, shops and the many monuments of Baroque Lecce. Owners - always ready to offer valuable information - live in the same building. Guests who are attracted by history and local culture can also visit historic sites nearby and cultural events in several towns of the province. In addition, those who love shopping, wine shops and good food have a wide choice of lovely little bars and great restaurants. A golf resort on the coast, the beautiful beaches (countless in the entire area!), and the cultural life of the city especially in summer are also available and “complete” the tourist offer.

The old neighbourhood, the soft and yellowish stone all around, the architecture and design of the house leave our guests a relaxing and unforgettable taste of past times.

From the Owner

The area where the house is located is the oldest of the city, the house is in the only 15th century tower remained in the old city. I have always been attracted by the narrow streets, which in this area are winding, like in the center of the Arab cities: via Delle Giravolte is in fact the street next to the house, conceived in a winding mode to facilitate the escaping from the incumbent Turkish threat. The warm atmosphere of the neighborhood is increased by the sweetness of the local stone that especially in the evening takes on a warm colour and striking light effects.

Lecce, one of Apulia's five provinces and famed for its baroque beauty, is one of the most attractive city destination for those wanting to admire baroque art: its golden sandstone and elegant 17th century architecture is a sight to behold. Along with pure sacred art - in both sculpture and paintings Lecce artsts like Cino, Tirso, Penna left important mastepieces - it's worth exploring Lecce clothes and personal accessories shops, many of them are made very often by local designers. Don't miss San Matteo church, the only example of "northen" baroque, Santa Croce, one of the most striking example of Baroque of all Italy, the Roman Theatre, which is now used as wonderful stage for operas or concerts in summer. In the area Otranto, Gallipoli, Santa Maria di Leuca, Castro and Santa Cesarea Terme are a "must": all coastal small towns, each of them has special attractions in terms of monuments (the Otranto Cathedral is simply amazing) castles (Otranto and Gallipoli). Wine and olive oil itineraries can't be missed neither. And don't forget to try the famous"pasticciotto" in any of the Lecce bar for breakfast and the "rustico", if you like having a snack at mid-morning or afternoon!

From the Owner

The "Vedetta" has a wonderful private terrace overlooking the monuments and 17th century bell towers all around, equipped with a table for sweet moments of relaxation and a hammock where you can enjoy the view of the garden. The height - which offers a breathtaking view of the old City - is typical of the sixteenth-century towers, and this is probably the only one left in Lecce. On the ground floor there is a large garden with mainly orange and lemon trees, and at the bottom of the garden among the flowers, stands a majestic walnut. Finally, a balcony overlooks one of the bedrooms, adding a touch of romanticism to the garden. The furniture, the scents of the garden and the view over the rooftops and bell towers of the old town give our guests an unforgettable flavour of authentic atmospheres.
