This hotel is an excellent choice for visiting the Baroque old city of Lecce, it is just a 7 minute walk to the city gate with easy parking in the streets nearby. Sophia and Paolo are very friendly and helpful providing city maps, restaurant recommendations and as much advice as you want; we were even shown around the house. The... More

I just want to thank all the Tripadvisor contributors who have added the complimentary reviews below - you convinced us to book this superb accommodation. We were allocated a room on the ground floor and were amazed at the amount of space we had. The height of the ceiling above the bed looked to be about 4 metres and the... More

I am an older woman traveling alone, looking for a place within my budget, but still with a bit of luxury. I found it here for 4 nights. Antica Villa La Viola is a mansion that has been turned into a B&B. The rooms are large and luxurious as well as the bathroom. Everything was spotless clean. I felt like... More

The rooms at this B N B are huge. It was nice to have a kitchen in the rooms to have little snacks. The breakfast is over at Danny's across the street and was just enough. Sofia was so nice and friendly. Sofia and her husband were willing to help in anyway we needed. The rooms were very clean and... More

We spent a relaxing week at Villa La Viola. This has been restored to a very high standard but retains its character. Its situation on the edge of town means that one can easily walk to the station or old town. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a large bathroom. The room was serviced daily. The patrons, Sofia and... More

We've just returned and can only agree with all the other 5 star comments, the owners are very proud of their hotel and rightly so, they are so welcoming and helpful. Leece is by far the best place to stay, we visited most of the main towns, I'm so glad we chose Lecce and the La Viola.

Live like a lord for a few days in what was once a beautiful country villa (although is now surrounded by modern buildings and near the centre of Lecce), complete with hugely spacious rooms decorated in a classical style and with antique furniture. The hosts were wonderfully hospitable and the villa is less than ten minutes' walk from the historic... More

As other posters have noted, this place is an undiscovered gem in Lecce. Owners are deeply hospitable: their adult daughter picked up at the train station at 8pm, lent us her umbrella, and helped find a wonderful accommodation in Otranto for the next night. The room was really a suite in 1901 mansion: a massive bedroom, kitchen, and sitting room,... More

We stayed here in May 2014. The apartment is just wonderful. Besides the room (matrimonial suite of 120 sq meters) is very large, you could say a part is like a conservatory - large windows over the whole wall - and there is a large garden (terrace) which is in practice private. Perhaps we should not say this, but it... More
