Mantatelurè Dimora Esclusiva
Found off a small street in the historic center of Lecce, this elegant and charming residence, dating back to the 1500’s waits to welcome you. The moment you step through the gates you are transported into a little piece of heaven, the warmth emanating from the typical Leccese stone and the peace and tranquility makes this the ideal place for a relaxing vacation.
The name mantatelure in the local Salentine dialect refers to the cloak “manta” or cover, which signified warmth, welcome and pleasure, whilst “re” means you, the guest, who should feel comfortable and cared for during your stay, and so it is at Mantatelure.
The bedrooms at Mantatelure, with their vaulted ceilings in Leccese stone are comfortable and welcoming, each one with its own ambiance and “personality”, from the colors of the rooms, to the materials and furnishings.
Puglia in Southern Italy hides a myriad of guarded sights, historical architecture and beaches untouched by tourism.
Puglia is a region that can satisfy any taste and interest, from its ancient history to the Medieval and Baroque epochs, from its castles that line the coast to the tiny, artistic villages where artisanal masterpieces come to life.
Local and international festivals add a little spice to life such as the Otranto Jazz Festival and La Notte della Taranta, where the area’s traditional dance, the Pizzica is celebrated.
