We stayed at La Mela Rosa 4 years ago when it was pretty new. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay then and were interested to see what it was like now. It was looking really lovely...the garden is now established and there is a swimming pool. The roses were a source of envy.....magnificent blooms with beautiful fragrance. The weather was better than on our last visit and the countryside seen from our windows and the garden was at its best and prettiest. The inside is still clean, spacious, comfortable, and attractive. Rob and Pauline, are still helpful and knowledgeable.....but more so. Pauline even managing to find a factory shop, rather off the beaten track,but in Amandola, where we were able to buy cashmere at a good price.
