There are countless enchanting places in Italy, scattered from the north to the south of the country, and San Felice Circeo is one of them. It is a picturesque village in a spectacular landscape, located in the heart of the Circeo National Park and the Circeo promontory of the same name. In this land history and legend come together, helping to give a magical aura to this strip of land in the province of Latina: it is said that it was here that the Sorceress Circe, whose profile seems to be reflected in the outline of the promontory, enchanted the brave Ulysses.
Those who want to enjoy the beauties of San Felice Circeo can decide to stay at the Bed & Breakfast "I Lecci", a family-run but at the same time refined structure with great attention to detail.
The Bed & Breakfast
The Bed & Breakfast "I Lecci" is located just outside the centre of San Felice Circeo, just 2.5 km away: it was inaugurated in 2003 and is located in the rooms, expertly restored, the old Opera Nazionale Combattenti. The three buildings that house the breakfast room, the reception and the rooms are literally immersed in a verdant garden: this green space sees the presence of fragrant Mediterranean scrub, holm oaks, orchards (there are hazelnut, walnut, orange, plum and lemon trees), exotic and succulent plants. The B&B offers its guests a range of services such as a therapeutic SPA-type pool, table tennis and table football, a well-equipped fitness corner, a solarium, a barbecue area and even an ironing and laundry service.
A comfortable stay a stone's throw from San Felice Circeo
The breakfast at "I Lecci" is really rich, enhanced in particular by jams, fresh fruit and tasty homemade cakes.
Guests can choose to stay in rooms with a rustic but refined atmosphere, with wooden staves, beams on the ceiling, ceramic lamps made in Terracina and USB sockets on the wall.
Alternatively, there are two- and three-room flats, some of which are on the ground floor and all of which overlook the beautiful garden that surrounds the entire building. Those who want to feel pampered like a prince can opt for the Suite, which even has a sitting room, a private garden and an emotional shower with soft lighting.
Such a stay makes for a pleasant holiday in San Felice Circeo, with visits to the village and excursions to the four nature reserves of the promontory.
