Aranceto is a completely renovated 18th century ancient dwelling of Count Carretti, who gave the name to the street. In the heart of the historic centre, close to the main monuments and places of the Lecce night life, and at a few km. from the beautiful beaches of Salento, the aranceto offers a unique and fascinating atmosphere. Its fully equipped double rooms and the small flat for up to three people finely furnished with a tasteful mix of old and modern touches are placed on the fully furnished terrace and on the first floor of the house. Its architectural details, the furnishings, the view on the orange garden and on the bell towers of the old town leave our guests with an unforgettable flavour of past times.
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.
