Aranceto is a renovated 18th century ancient dwelling located
in the town's historic centre, close to monuments, to Lecce night life,
and also to the beautiful beaches of Salento.
Aranceto has three fully equipped double rooms and a flat for up to
three people on the terrace and on the first floor of the house. Two of
the rooms have a view on the orange garden, where breakfast can be
served in spring and summertime on request.
The flat on the terrace has a bathroom with a shower, kitchen,
bedroom / living room, air conditioning, TV and a large balcony /
terrace (with a sweet, poetic view of bell towers and old roofs),
where breakfast can be served on request in spring and summer.
Going downstairs there is a small double room with a fascinating
semicircular vault, which has a view on the small street.
The other two double rooms are on the first floor, one in particular
has a romantic view on the garden through a small, Romeo and Juliet like
Continental breakfast include homemade marmalade and fresh local
products and Marcello's and Stella's advice on which beaches to go
depending on winds!
The owners are also very happy to cook dinners for their clients on
request in July and August, which include the best local specialties and
also on request "asado", Argentinean meat cooked in the
typical "asador" in the garden, all accompanied by
local, excellent red wine.
The place is very close to the main baroque monuments for which Lecce
is famous and close to pubs and bars which make up an exciting night
"movida". Tennis courts are at a walking distance, while golf
courts are some miles away. Beaches are relatively close (there are more
than sixty beaches in the Salento area!), the town has a lively cultural
life also in summer, Marcello and Stella will guide you to discover the
secrets of hundreds of small, old villages through legends and
myths, flavours and tastes which make a stay in "Aranceto"
really unique and unforgettable.
The town where the inn is located is famous for the baroque art
style. Lecce is full of monuments which gained to it the name of the
"Florence of the South" in the 17th & 18th century. It was
the second town in southern Italy after Naples in importance. So a look
at this wonderful city is really worth it!
Besides, Lecce lies in the middle of a really fascinating area full
of pre-roman monuments ("menhir" and "Dolmen"), of
ancient dwellings scattered all over the countryside and the coastline.
A marvelous countryside and attractive beaches furnished for a complete
relax in summer make a stay in Lecce a really unique and fascinating
Enjoy a baroque town, a cuisine which is simple, genuine but yet with
an intense taste, sweet beaches, colourful skies, exciting night life...
all this and much more is Lecce, and Aranceto is the ideal place to
