Wonderfully atmospheric B&B of three or four star hotel quality in the historic center of Lucera. We stayed five nights, with plenty to do each day both in Lucera, and also visiting Foggia, Troia and Biccari nearby. Also within an hour’s drive of the Gargono. Antonio is a great host and a font of knowledge on art and the history of art. And he produces a great breakfast! Expect to stay in a large rambling historic house with an inner courtyard garden where you will take breakfast. Do not expect modern construction or facilities ( though everything you would normally need will be available). WiFi available in the downstairs area only, and enjoy the absence of TV. Public parking was easily available nearby during our September visit. Very highly recommended, would definitely visit again

Le Foglie is a charming place in a historic building with beautiful common spaces. The innkeepers are delightful and bend over backwards to make you comfortable. The period decorating is amazing. Rooms are spacious but haven't all been updated to modern standards. Plumbing and electricity isn't up to modern standards and because of the thick walls, WiFi doesn't reach all the rooms. It's a good reason to spend time in the various regal public spaces. Breakfast was served outdoors. If ever in Lucera again, I will definitely stay at Le Foglie.

My second visit to Lucera and this lovely B&B, the first for my fiancé. Antonio is friendly, welcoming and helpful and makes a great breakfast. I still stand by that the tomatoes in Lucera are the best in the world and the breakfast bruchetta is something to definitely look forward to each morning! We opted for the rooftop room, as it is the most unique and relaxing area in the house. The Wifi was not available in our room, but you could access it from the rooftop balconies or downstairs in the common area. The room itself is quaint and comfortable, it truly is a unique setting like no other. The garden where breakfast is served is just as pretty with plenty of greenery. We were lucky enough to get a car park at the side of the B&B, which was very convenient. We visited during Ferragosto, so there were many people, events, food etc. at night. Everything does still shut at roughly 1pm to 5pm, which I believe is the norm in small Italian towns. I am also lucky enough to have a friend here who knows where to eat (had the best pizza!!). Lucera is a wonderful small town, if you are planning to visit, definitely stay at Le Foglie di Acanto. You won't be disappointed!

The rooms in this beautiful old palace have antique furniture, pictures and ornaments. The situation is right in the centre of the historic town but there is parking just outside. Breakfast was lovely and in the pretty courtyard garden. It consisted of fruit salad, fresh orange juice ( the best we had) and good coffee ( again very good ) , yoghurt, bread and homemade marmalade. There was also tomato bruschetta! The bathroom was large but the shower door was broken and had been replaced by a curtain which made the cubicle small. On the night we stayed (on route from Peschici to Matera) the owners were there but not their son. They are charming and did everything to make sure we had what we needed. They did not speak a word of English so communication was a little difficult as our Italian is also limited. Their son, when he is there, does speak English. Also make sure you have cash to pay. We did also have some difficulty finding a restaurant in Lucera. At lunch time we walked down every street and only found one place open to get a drink and some lunch. I was starting to wonder if I would die of dehydration at one stage as nothing was open. We came to learn on this trip to Southern Italy that everywhere shuts down from 1pm to 5pm but Lucera was the worst town for this. We expected that the town would liven up at 5pm, so set off out again at 8pm to find a restaurant to eat in the evening (Tuesday evening) but again to no avail, very little open and restaurants we did find just seemed shut. We found a mediocre pizzeria and had to eat there as it was about the only place. The square around the cathedral was busy late evening with people strolling but they must have all eaten at home, if they could have found a shop to buy any food. If you visit Lucera, do stay here, but be aware of afternoon closure and do research on available open restaurants before hand.

The rooms in this restored historic building are unique, with high ceilings and interesting furniture. Located in the center of Lucera's historic district, it's walking distance to everything. Helpful owner Antonio met us at the train station and took us to the hotel. Our room had a small kitchen provided with basic breakfast needs which we supplemented from the nearby grocery. We rented a car on the second day and were able to park right in front of the hotel. The only drawback was the temperature-- it was cold when we visited in early April, and the same qualities which make the room appealing made it hard to heat. Beds did have warm blankets. Lucera is a beautiful, lively, and historic town with buildings of honey colored stone. We found good restaurants, coffee shops and friendly people. It's an easy drive for a day trip to the picturesque Gargano Peninsula. We had a great visit and would stay at the B&B again.

What an amazing experience it was to walk into Le Foglie di Acanto. Antonio and his family have created a breathtaking space in this lovingly restored old mansion. The common areas were stunning and each of the rooms was very unique and very spacious. Antonio was helpful, charming, and friendly. He even helped us get to the house by directing us step-by-step as we had trouble following both the directions and the GPS. The B&B is superbly located in the heart of the old town of Lucera which is really very beautiful. We spent one day driving the Gargano Peninsula and had lunch in Vieste--absolutely beautiful and enchanting. We enjoyed the food, the streets, the people, and the history of Lucera -- and Le Foglie di Acanto transports you back in time and makes you feel that you are living that history. On a side note, we really appreciated that there was a parking place for us right in front...when driving in Southern Italy, that is often the exception and parking can be a crazy maker. We highly recommend this B&B and Lucera. Not many Americans put this on their itineraries and I'm so glad we did.

Antonio, the owner of this small B&B is a very affiable host and the house is well located in the centre of the city of Lucera. Rooms are simple but well appointed and give you lots of room, while maintaining the character of the older house, and the common area is very spacious, allowing you to sit and relax, take some coffee, have a drink, and chat with Antonio about the area. He was able to point us in the direction of some very good places to eat, always important! Make sure you have very good directions in finding the house as the city is full of one way streets and can be confusing. Note: internet connection was not good while there so be prepared.

We had a beautiful room (really an apartment since it has a living/dining room with a small kitchen) and a very nice stay. The owners have been renovating this palazzo over the years and filling it with beautiful antiques. We were greeted with warmth and friendliness. The rooms are unique, one with painted ceilings and a truly palatial bathroom was stunning. We can't imagine a better place to stay in Lucera. And if you go there see if you can make it to nearby Troia, the cathedral there is stunning.

This stay will be memorable. We had a two-floor apartment in an old mansion in the town center. The building is very nice but what made our stay there great was exceptional friendliness of the people who run it. Also, quite exceptional for Puglia, we could communicate in English there :) If you are heading to Lucera, make sure you stay there!
