Owned and run by charming sisters Adriana and Manuela, Santa Marta Suites & Apartments is a sweet and stylish pick for your stay in Lecce, Puglia.
The sisters have lovingly and elegantly converted the historic building that plays host to this boutique 7-bedroom B&B, preserving the stunning original features whilst adding plenty of stylish contemporary updates.
A 15-minute walk from Lecce’s Centro Storico, Santa Marta Suites & Apartments is a great spot from which to explore and the B&B is both child and pet-friendly (by prior arrangement + extra charge applies).
It's worth noting that reception is not open 24-hours a day so you will need to contact the hotel ahead of travel to confirm your arrival time.
A great breakfast is served in the cosy breakfast room and is included in most room rates.
There's no restaurant on site but you're spoilt for choice nearby and the sister owners will happily share their local recommendations.
What we loved...
Peaceful and elegantly designed - we loved our stay at Santa Marta's. Whilst the guy on reception spoke very little English, he was very sweet and there were lovely touches like fresh cake each morning at breakfast and beautiful-smelling toiletries. I loved the original tiled floor of our suite and the super high, vaulted ceilings - it felt pretty grand considering the price.

Puglia, in southern Italy, is a land full of ancient olive trees, charming villages, white-stoned houses, crystal clear waters and big blue skies. Santa Marta Suites & Apartments are just a few steps from the Piazza Duomo of Lecce, known for its baroque buildings and cafés, bars and restaurants that line the streets.
Under the gaze of Saint Oronzo's statue is Lecce's Roman amphitheatre, built at the end of the 2nd Century BC.
Santa Maria Suites & Apartments is well placed to explore Lecce’s sights – Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Adorno and Porta Napoli all under a 20-minute walk away.
Lecce is also a great jump off for exploring further afield with some beautiful swimming spots a short drive away including the stunning caves at La Grotta della Poesia (26km).
