Rooftop views of a Baroque town from heavenly flower-filled terraces and a truly scrumptious breakfast from Elisabetta make this one a must

Read guest comments

Lecce 'The Florence of the South' is an architectural treasure. White stone on Baroque façades against intense blue skies... dazzling. Keep the faith as you follow the directions through narrow alleys to a tiny square in which Italian drivers perform ingenious manoeuvring feats. You'll spot the house immediately – pots of wildly colourful flowers spilling from every sill, succulents trailing from balconies like Rapunzel's hair. No need to climb up: Elisabetta will welcome you like an old friend and take you past her floor to the apartments. Each has its own heavenly terrace – flower-filled oases on which to laze and gaze at the wonders of Lecce (some of her guests have found it hard to go exploring, preferring a shady corner with a good book!). Peaceful rooms are traditionally furnished with a few modern touches, bathrooms are spotless, little kitchens have welcome hampers. Breakfast – a treat – is left at the door in a basket: freshly squeezed juice, a tin of warm croissants, a little glass pot of yogurt and fruits and jams from Elisabetta's country house. Just wonderful.

Elisabetta Achiardi:

  • In the heart of the historical centre of Lecce, suspended between spiers and steeples of the Baroque era, you can enjoy the colors, the atmosphere and the lights of unforgettable sunsets. Roof terraces full of flowers - truly relaxing.
  • Maps and guides at your disposal to accompany you in the discovery of the wonderful old town of Lecce. You can forget your car.... Everything is at your doorstep.
  • A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to enjoy your stay. Dining on the terrace or enjoying a fine wine under the starry sky will remain among your best memories of this noble and ancient city full of charm
  • A welcome basket full of local produce, coming from the family farm, will be like a welcome hug.
  • In the morning another basket full of goodies will be left outside your door. If it's not the bells of the churches around you to wake you up, it will certainly be the scent of freshly baked croissants or a thousand other delicacies.
  • A little slice of heaven suspended between the flowers. This is the Roof Barocco Suite.

"Earlier reviews on this site say it all. Elizabetta is a very special and utterly professional host of an apartment in the heart of historic Lecce. Breakfasts are incomparable and a daily surprise and delight. She helped us out in all sorts of ways for which we shall always be grateful. We are grateful too for Sawdays including this accommodation in its listings."

"Everything that has been said about this place is true it is absolutely perfect. We only booked 2 nights as we are on a grand tour of Southern Italy and Sicily. What a start to our holiday. Everything is spotless and beautiful. Generous and helpful hosts. They left a well stocked welcome basket and cool drinks in the fridge. The breakfasts were sublime. The terraces were wonderful to relax and have breakfast on. I actually cannot do justice to such a wonderful place and wonderful hosts. We will return for a longer stay. "

"An exceptionally beautiful and elegant apartment with a stunning flowered patio. Elisabetta, the owner, is warm and welcoming. Superb breakfasts of hand-made baked goods, savoury omelettes, or whatever you prefer are discreetly left outside your room in a beautifully made-up basket. A wonderful place to stay in a wonderful city."

"There cannot be a more wonderful spot in all of Lecce! My husband and I stayed at Roof Barocco for three nights and it was so hard to leave this incredible place. On the way into the town, we got a bit stuck due to road closures for the St Oronzo festivities, but our hosts came out to find us and guide us ‘home’! The stunning self-contained accommodation is within a few minutes walking distance of all the wonderful sights of Lecce. It was an absolute joy to sit on the tranquil shady terraces, drawing out the contents of our delicious breakfast basket, resting and reading. "

"A real treat. The owners are truly delightful. The accommodation is perfect and the breakfasts are unsurpassable! Elisabetta, thank you very much for a very memorable visit. I cannot recommend this place more highly."

"Just spent Christmas with friends staying at Roof Barocca Suite in Lecce. We absolutely loved Pierre Angelo and Elizabetta and their accommodation is comfortable, stylish, well equipped and looks out over the rooftops of the most wonderful town in Puglia. Our bed was so comfortable I wanted to bring it home with me. The breakfasts delivered in baskets before we woke were utterly delicious and our Christmas break was perfect because of where we stayed and the welcome we received. Thank you."

"This apartment/B and B is an extraordinary find in the town of Lecce. Perfect location...decor you would love in your home and breakfast...well it has to be experienced. This is one of the most comfortable accommodations I have ever stayed in...terrace views are great. Elisabetta the owner does everything to make your stay perfect...but at the same time you have total privacy. A real find!"

"Wonderful rooftop setting in ideal location for visiting Lecce.. Beautiful terraces for relaxation and most generous hospitality with delicious home-cooked breakfasts. One of the best places we've ever stayed."
May 2014
"Wonderful place to stay, Elisabetta a wonderful host. Exceeded expectations. Delightfully generous in the home-made welcome goodies and breakfast delivered to the door. Private terraces looking over the rooftops of Lecce a real treat. Would very happily return."
April 2014
"This is a delightful place – for two principal reasons. First, the accommodation is spacious, imaginatively furnished and spotlessly clean. Everything guests could reasonably need is provided and it's within minutes of Lecce's centre, yet very quiet. Second, the owners are very welcoming and Elisabetta's breakfast basket is rightly celebrated. As if that wasn't enough, her husband willingly helped us sort out a puncture that our hire car suffered. Their website describes this as: "A little slice of heaven"? Not having been to heaven, it's difficult to know. But the hyperbole is deserved."
December 2013
"No one could possibly want for more in this sublime place., thoughI hesitate to recommend it further in case t becomes too popular and there would be no room for our return. Faultless, spotless and utterly charming, the Roof Barocca is exemplary in every way, not least the hosts themselves. Thank you Elizabeta for making our Christmas holiday - well done Sawday for including this exceptional place. In gratitude, Nicholas Courtney"
