1 Bedroom , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Galatina, Province of Lecce, Puglia
EscapetoItaly: The 1 bedroom apartment is located in a 17th century palazzo in the historical heart of Galatina. It featured on Channel 4's 'A Place in the Sun' with Amanda Lamb in 2007 (watch online now) and has since been beautifully refurbished by award winning 'Puglia Estates' (also seen on TV). It sleeps 2 to 4 people, is self catering and is a perfect base for exploring the Salentine Peninsular.

The property boasts original vaulted ceilings, 2 private roof terraces (spectacular views), a balcony over the cobbled streets, and right outside the door are shops, restaurants, cafes and gelato (ice-cream) shops open all year round!

Stunning local scenery and only a short drive to either the Adriatic or the Ionian Seas make this an ideal location to take it easy and enjoy the dolce vita. There are miles of beaches,...

We had a fantastic stay in Palazzo Luceri which has been beautifully renovated and is situated in the relatively un-touristy town of Galatina. The terrace just off the kitchen was perfect for breakfast/lunch/dinner and was quite sheltered so warm even on breezier evenings. The upper terrace was fantastic for sunbathing and just looking across the rooftops. Everything in the house...

Management response:

Hi Jim and Paul, Thank you for our wonderful stay in your apartment. We only arrived back last weekend and intended to contact you. We really had no issues with the apartment, as we did not end up using the dishwasher, as Christiano had advised us it was not working. The weather was fabulous overall, aside for the first couple...

This apartment was way above my expectations. It was very clean, spacious, the Italian Manager; Christiano was superb, happily speaking in English and giving my partner and I good advice on the area. Galatina is an interesting town, the locals friendly. The English owner Jim, is very friendly and easy to deal with. Kitchen facilities are perfect, sun terraces beautiful...

About the neighbourhood
Located in the historical Centre of Galatina (a Cittá d'Arte), the property is within 5 minutes walk of the town's restaurants, cafes, bakeries, shops (not forgetting the gelato ice-cream shops) and fine examples of the beautiful churches the town is famous for. Further afield the bustling, baroque provincial capital, Lecce, is only a 20 minute hop away. Or, if you prefer the sea, sand and amazing fish restaurants (not to mention underground grottos, fishing villages and beautiful coastal walks), Galatina is also within easy reach of the Ionian (Gallipoli, Santa Caterina, Porto Cesareo) and the Adriatic (Otranto, Torre dell'Orso, Castro) coastlines. Alberobello, the home of the trulli, Ostuni, the White City, and Sta. Maria di Leuca, the Lands End of Puglia, are also just a day... more
