La Mela Rosa Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 7 Amandola B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 June 2012

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.

Just spent a week at La Mela Rosa with my partner, his brother's wife and of course his brother! And what a hoot of a week we had running poor old Robert and Pauline ragged!! Spring in Amandola was picture perfect. We walked around in summer attire during the day and rugged up in the evening...perfect for snuggling up for a fantastic nights sleep.

We spent our days driving merrily through the Le Marche region and had an absolute ball. Even with Pauline's detailed hand drawn mudmaps, we managed to get lost at every opportunity...which only resulted in us stumbling onto the most amazing towns we may never have found intentionally...it was like stepping back in time...making cheese (which was fun for some but not this little duck), joining a local funeral procession which was a gala event in itself, dodging mad women in electric wheelchairs in Salerno, eating a fabulous lunch in Smerillo (getting there was an experience in itself...thank God Pauline has a mobile phone), bleeding the local Conad Supermart dry of sparkling Lambrusco, not to mention the local gelaterio of its sooper dooper pistachio gelato, eat, drink and be merry....we certainly applied that ethos!!!

We walked...even in the rain...we ate, we drank (at every opportunity).

Pauline arranged an amazing dinner cooked by a michellin man...oops, I mean michellin starred chef. What a night, fantastic food you had to see and taste to believe and fantastic wine and pro secco to accompany...along with some very relaxing conversation.

Then there was lunch in San Vittoria. Delectable pasta with fig and cream sauce and roast goat...yummmmo!! Great wine and great Italian beer....And what a beautiful village..who would have thought we would stumble onto phallic lollipops :).

Next was a pasta cooking class in Pauline's kitchen...what fun. I know how to make pasta from scratch now along with different sauces to accompany.It has been a long time since I was scolded by a teacher it was so funny :))

And of course there was the fabulous Georgio!!! A wine tasting course accompanied with delicious antipasto and finger food...most enjoyable wine tasting we have done. Georgio was so patient with us all...I know we distracted him because he was mortified we made him swallow instead of spit! Such a gentleman with so much composure.

I saw the scales but purposely avoided them...I could tell by my belt how much weight I was gaining, but what the heck...when in Rome!

Sorry about re-arranging the furniture inside and out (its a gay thing), but at least we remembered to put it back.I cant believe how patient you guys were, especially with our Lambrusco and grano padano fuelled card nights and facebook sessions.

Now, we love love love Pauline's cooking and her special gluten free treats for Helen and the fruit compote, but we also loved Robert's scrambled eggs and breakfast banter.

So after a week of eating, drinking, drinking, rally car spotting, killing 18 frogs (they jumped in front of the car!!), deer spotting (we all saw it except for Helen), big fox spotting in Smerillo, Polly walking, rally car spotting (it was a skoda), snow spotting on the Sibillini's, swimming...yes swimming (okay everyone but me but I did dangle my legs in!), drinking, driving and even more drinking, we are totally relaxed if not a tad overweight.

Thank you Pauline and Robert, your hospitatility and guidance was amazing. It was great enjoying your company for the week!! It was a fantastic, fun and relaxing week...so much so we even did the old "we should invest here"...poor Georgio, we picked his brain!

Look forward to seeing you both again when you come to Sydney!!!

We stayed at La Mela Rosa for eight nights in early May -- twice as many as we had planned. The hosts, Pauline and Rob, were so warm, friendly, helpful and gracious, and the B&B and its setting so beautiful that we didn't want to leave. The B&B is a restored stone farmhouse, which made for a very "Italian" stay. It was spotless and comfortable, and the rural setting breathtaking. The views of the rolling hills and fields of Le Marche were beautiful and tranquil and made for a restful, peaceful stay. We had problems at home while we were at La Mela Rosa, and Rob and Pauline generously helped us work through them from far away, which greatly eased some of our worries. The breakfasts were delicious with fresh fruit and yogurt and eggs (!), a welcome change from the Italian tradition of sweets for breakfast. We will definitely return to Le Marche and, most assuredly, to Le Mela Rose.

Rob and Pauline are just the best hosts. The B&B is the most comfortable and the position magnificent. We just loved being there, away in the beautiful hills and without the tourist. For once I felt I experienced a place rather than seen! Can't recommend enough

I stayed at La Mela Rosa for two nights, it was one of the most relaxing breaks I have had. The owners are very welcoming and there is none of the awkwardness that one sometimes feels in B&Bs - one is made to feel completely at home by the charming proprieters. The B&B is tastefully furnished with modern fittings and bathrooms, and antique furniture. There is even a small lounge with a great collection of English language books and French doors to the garden. Needless to say, everywhere was spotlessly clean. The home cooking was delicious. I did not want to come home!

We only had two nights at la Mela Rosa but it was an excelent experience. The breakfast was perfect with the home made ingredients.The room and bathroom are perfect and large and the bed is perfect to sleep in like home!
We had perfect weather to enjoy the swimmingpool and the pleasure of hearing nothing but the animals around the house. The house is not near any village or city so it's very quiet, we loved it! The hosts are perfect and can give a you lot of information.

In the surroundings you will find those old towns where it's like time has been standing still for years and everybody seems to know eachother.
I hope this region will long stay as it is, and not be spoild by many tourists! So don't tell anyone about it but go and see it yourself.

We recently had the pleasure of staying at La Mela Rosa for 5 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful B & B and its situated in an absolutely stunning area. I can't say enough about our hosts Pauline and Rob....they're wonderful and with their knowledge of the area they gave us great suggestions on where to visit and sightsee. Pauline contacted my Italian relatives for me and set up a meeting. They made us feel like family and we can't wait to visit them again.
