Located in the historic center of Lecce, Chez MaMa blends great 18th-century architecture and elegant interior design with authentic Salento traditions. A large, bright space, it has been extensively restored using natural materials, and boasts a cool rooftop terrace overlooking the city.
Interiors are simple and spacious, with a mix of old and new furnishings and vintage treasures. On the ground floor, the living room has high arched ceilings, with a bold, angular iron staircase that ascends through the kitchen nook to the next floor.
The first double bedroom has a great mezzanine wardrobe space, a suspended headboard, and a tall, slim window overlooking the city streets. Not to mention a cello in the corner of the room (the owner is an internationally-renowned orchestra conductor).
Pass through the second-floor bedroom to the lovely roof terrace on stairs enclosed by a dramatic glass pyramid. It’s a great outdoor space with kitchen, lounge area and views of the city rooftops.
This is an ideal vacation home for rent in Puglia for travelers from all over the world, as well as Apulians wanting to spend a holiday not too far from home.
