This home is
A shared flat: well...it’s a shared flat!
What your guests will love about your home
For me this place is a caravan without wheels, a ship without sea, a piece of heaven to share with guests and friends.
In the historic center of Lecce, with big terraced roof. It's a fresh and relaxing apartment in the historic heart of the city, just a few steps from the Cathedral, the main square of Piazza Oronzo, and the most important streets.
A huge terrace to enjoy the sunshine or cool off with a glass of wine in the evenings.
Guests may use the kitchen and the washing machine, and if they like they can get to know the local culture. If you enjoy good food there is also a chef available. :)
We provide maps and information about the area and all the events happening in the city and through out the Salento. If you like I can accompany you on visits to historic and natural sites, beaches and to traditional concerts with music and dance.
The furniture is a bit retro, but the house is actually an artistic laboratory and we are always working to make it more beautiful and unique.
What your guests will love about your neighborhood
Lecce, capital of Baroque architecture, is nicknamed the "Florence of the South." It's small but rich with architectural gems and important archeological sites like the Roman Ampitheater.
The area around Lecce, known as the Salento, is a stupendous region, with the most beautiful beaches in all of Italy (along with Sardinia), home to ancient traditions, forests of olive trees, cicadas, red earth, local cuisine and wine warmed by the heat of the southern sun, and friendly smiling inhabitants.
There is a rich arts scene and very active social and cultural life.
When you are here you'll get your own keys so that you can come and go freely, and if you like you can join us for cultural events in the city and get to know friends and local residents.
You can use the kitchen and all the food you find in the house. I'm not a vegetarian, but the house is, so please no meat or fish.
Guests will have full access to the large terraced roof, the kitchen and all the food there, the large living room with tv, speakers, washing machine, bathroom with shower, bedrooms for sleeping, sunsets for contemplating, and friends to talk with
I like interacting with guests, if they enjoy company. Sometimes I don't want to interact as much, but I still love them.
We are in the heart of the city, and lucky enough to have a small grocery and convenience store under the house that is open until evening. You are just a few steps from everything.
There is free on street parking just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The train station is just over a kilometer away, and I can come and pick you up there if you like.
You can connect to free internet from the terrace. Internet in the house is available for an extra fee, and must be coordinated before booking.
There are many other services available: private chef for lunches and dinners, driver, etc.
There may be other guests in the home. Some guests may be given a bed in a room that connects the kitchen and living room. If this would bother you let me know at the time of booking.
Order and cleanliness is important. Please clean up after yourself, and keep your room, the bathroom and the kitchen tidy.
Please be mindful of resources: i.e. lights, gas, hot water etc. Its kinder to the wallet and more importantly to our environment.
The cleaning fee or the deposit (30 euro) will only be charged if the house is not left clean and in order.
