Sasso al Melo is the result of a careful restoration of an old farmhouse, the first of which dates back to 1600. Four of the five apartments are in the main building, whilst the 5th is in a stone house next door. Wooden ceilings, stone floors, contemporary and antique furniture create a stylish and welcoming atmosphere. All of the self-catering apartments have their own private entrance, an open space and sitting room and their own fireplace (or stove). The apartments at Sasso al Melo share a swimming pool, barbecue and pizza oven, laundry. Contessa Rosa sleeps 5 and has a huge stone fireplace in the kitchen. Calvilla d'inverno is the largest of the apartments and has a stone spiral staircase leading up to the two large bedrooms (not suitable for very small children), two additional beds are possible using the sofa bed. The Pink Lady is the perfect apartment for a couple with its fabulous four poster bed. Rosa d'Agosto is possibly our favourite, located on several levels. The large living area has a magnificent stone fire place with a stove and the bedrooms (which sleep 5) are on two different levels. The Elstar is perfect for those wanting a little more privacy and it is a short walk from the main building. Spread out on two levels, the kitchen opens on to a large living room with fireplace and dining area. This apartment is the closest to the charming little stone pool
