We were 4 people and we had an excellent time in Martano. The town is located near Lecce and we were able to drive to different directions from there. Very nice decorated rooms, very nice staff speaking even our language.

With its antique furniture,vaulted ceilings and stone walls you could think you had stepped back in time, but with all the modern facilities. We had the choice of three rooms but picked the first we saw. It was so charming with its roof top terrace that overlooked Martano. It's a great base for tripping to the Adriatic or the Ionian...
