“What a lovely place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Thank you Pauline and Rob.. Such a beautiful place to stay. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by Pauline and Rob, given good coffee and delicious cake and spent the next few hours chatting and laughing.
Our room, the one with french doors and a patio was spotlessly clean, large and very tastefully decorated. Loved opening the doors in the morning to let the outdoors in, and even saw a deer nearby at dawn one morning. Very nice bed linen and a great bathroom with handmade toiletries was a treat.
We were only there for two nights but managed to see enough of the area to see how beautiful and interesting it is, even though not touristy at all, which is a blessing.
We ate at La Mela Rosa on our first evening and the food was very good. Breakfasts were too. We especially loved Pauline's homemade granola, along with the bacon and eggs, plenty of toast, preserves and very good coffee. Our second evening was our wedding anniversary and Pauline booked a restaurant for us in a village a short drive away. The meal was so lovely, as were the staff. So glad we went there.
In all a very, very well renovated house with kind and interesting owners in a beautiful location. So much to do and see. We can't wait to go back next Spring.
Final mention has to go to Polly the young crossbreed dog. She's completely bonkers, and full of fun.

During our stay, Pauline and Rob were more than perfect hosts in their beautifully appointed rural B&B where nothing was too much trouble. Rooms and common areas are spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. And although a roast dinner for breakfast was refused, any reasonable request for breakfast fare was happily provided. Swimming in the pool while enjoying the stunning scenery, was just wonderful. Polly, the young German Shepherd cross, is a delightfully exuberant member of the host family.

We had the pleasure of staying at La Mela Rosa this pas September for 9 nights...which was nearly not enough. Our last visit to the B & B was September 2011 and when we were returning to Le Marche there was no question where we would stay. I can't say enough about this absolutely beautiful B & B..the setting is out of this world, Pauline & Rob's home is totally stunning and the attention to detail in everything they do is remarkable. I know my husband and I have never been to another B & B that has made us feel so welcome...from the afternoon tea and homemade treats to all the help Pauline & Rob go to with every request you can imagine. I could go on and on...but if you're travelling to Le Marche La Mela Rosa is a definite stop.
Looking forward to heading back in 2014
Ken & Linda

This is the only review that I have ever made on Tripadvisor. We are hoteliers and by and large we never stay in hotels for obvious reasons, instead, choosing to stay in small B&Bs or self catering. We never expect perfection but there is always a secret hope that one day one will stumble upon our Shangri-la. Well, this is it ! A hidden part of Italy, in the mountains of Sibillini seemingly isolated from the outside world. La Mela Rosa is everything that one could wish for. Lovely comfortable rooms with views, showers that one can only dream of, comfortable places to read, amazingly thoughtful hosts in Pauline and Rob ( wicked senses of humour ! ) who are able to read your needs in a flash.....Pauline cooks REALLY well. Local ingredients whizzed up in the local idiom. Good local restaurants are also in abundance. Walks to remember for the rest of your life....Trout fishing for the pot, or to release, can be arranged locally as with cooking classes.

If you are looking for a holiday that is perfect, then this is it. The scrambled eggs are wondrous to behold....Rob is the breakfast chef !

We will be back. Thank you Mela Rosa for being who you are and where you are.

We stayed 4 nights and it was not enough.....next time, I hope that we can book for a couple of weeks ( if they will have us and they have room )

Of course the weather is always good in the summer but they have open fireplaces for the colder months and we can imagine how lovely that would be.

Room Tip: All three are quite lovely

My wife and I spent 5 nights at La Mela Rosa as a base for day hikes in the Sibillini mountains. From La Mela Rosa a variety of gorges, lakes and mountains can be accessed within a 30 to 40 minute car drive - our favourites being Mount Sibillini, Lago Pilato and the Finestrone Gorge.

La Mela Rosa ticks all the boxes and more:
- large rooms with excellent showers
- hearty breakfasts
- packed lunch options
- an idyllic and relaxing location
- a knowledgeable and friendly host and hostess

One of Pauline's big pluses, apart from her willingness to help in any way, was her knowledge of the restaurants in the surrounding area and the obvious regard she is held by the restauranteurs. The restaurants and trattorias of Le Marche offer outstanding value and customer service when compared to their Umbrian neighbours.

Pauline and Rob have a large restored house in lovely countryside near Amandola. Our room was large by any standards but we also had our own sitting room with books to browse. Breakfast on the patio was excellent- even including bacon and eggs! And the pool was all you needed. In case we couldn't find the place Rob met us in town and guided us to La Mela Rosa. What more could you want? Make sure you make the pleasant walk to the nearby lake.

It was good to find such a gem so close to the charming town of Amandola. Pauline and Rob were perfect hosts, always offering us a glass of wine after a long day out in the countryside. The place itself is immaculate and really beautifully restored, with nice spots to chill out and a great pool area. We were both quite jealous of their life there... If you're looking for a place that has charm and people who can give you tips on everything there is to do around, go there. Pauline and Rob were like locals, except they spoke perfect English! Oh, and they know where all the good restaurants are too!
