B&B REALE is the perfect location if you want to go into the heart of LECCE. The B&B comes with excellent facilities and comfortable rooms. The owner is a delightful man who made us very welcome. Breakfast is in a bar about 100metres from the B&B and has deliciously filled brioches and great coffee.
It's the perfect place to come if you wish to stay in LECCE.
