Warm welcome and helpful hints from Silvia, Marketa and Sai. When I arrived at my room (Tramonto) I noticed that the "ombrellone" (necessary to escape from the sun at mid-day) on my terrace was missing, contrary to the photo on their website. The very next day they had it installed (see my pix).

I spend four nights in Il Corso while visiting the southern part of Puglia. The B&B is really nice, it's only a couple of years old so everything is really nice. The two hosts are really helpful and charming. They always have time for a chat and can suggest ideas for what to see and do. The B&B is located... More

it was a last minute decision to leave Lecce for a few days for an "ocean fix" and recharge myself for the remainder of my time in Italy. How fortunate I was to hear back from Sylvia she had a sea view room available......being Pasque weekend I was unsure I would find anything. Everything from the moment I arrived and... More

In our opinion you practicly have to have a heart of stone not to be touched by the charm of Sylvia and Saai (I hope I've spelled your name correctly Saai).   Both young women gave us, with their warm enthousiasm, every morning a bright start of the day.  We stayed in one of the two rooms with the balcony....

This B&B in a very good place to stay. The owner, Sylvia, and Sai the always smiling assistant are most friendly and know how to share their hospitality. The rooms are very clean and tidy, the lunchroom is cosy. The breakfast is absolutely great and tasty, with a friendly word and a smile served. For me an absolute suggestion for... More

Great owner we met, Silvia, and the personnel - ready at the time when we said we would arrive, giving us a better room than booked.. Modern, chic, furniture.. Breakfast over the top and over what we could have extpected. Had to leave after one night, but would have stayed longer because of the great atmosphere of the hotel.

The Il Corso Bed & Breakfast is very centrally located, provides all comforts (fantastic bedding, modern bathrooms, effective A/C system, safe, minibar, wi-fi and you name it!) and offers an impeccable service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Da un'antica costruzione nel centro storico di Porto Cesareo, nel Salento, nasce "Il Corso", un nuovissimo Bed & Breakfast accogliente ed elegante, completamente ristrutturato nella primavera del 2012.La sinuosa balaustra fa oggi da cornice ad una struttura dal cuore moderno con un design curato e funzionale. A 50 mt dalla spiaggia, lungo il corso principale, nel cuore del centro dello shopping e dei principali servizi, "il Corso" offre tutti i comfort necessari per un soggiorno gradevole e frizzante, senza la necessità di doversi spostare in auto.La colazione, con prodotti genuini e tipici della generosa terra pugliese, è servita in un grazioso terrazzino coperto: il giusto inizio per una nuova giornata di vacanza in pieno relax.A disposizione degli Ospiti l'area solarium per una tranquilla tintarella sotto il sole rovente della Puglia, e comodi salottini da cui ammirare gli straordinari tramonti sul mare di Porto Cesareo, accarezzati dalla brezza marina e cullati dalla melodia dei gabbiani. Col chiarore della luna, la terrazza diventa poi la "galleria" migliore per volgere lo sguardo al "palcoscenico" del passeggio serale. ... more   less
