Sasso al Melo | Small-scale domain in serene and secluded Tuscany

    (41 reviews)

    Outside oven
    Tranquility & spaciousness

Sasso al Melo is truly picturesque…two ancient buildings located in a verdant setting, right in the heart of the Tuscan Apennines. A simply wonderful place to relax and unwind and the ideal base for exploring the surrounding area, where guests can enjoy hiking and cycling, and up until April, even skiing in Abetone, just 15 minutes from the estate.

Both interior and exterior are extremely atmospheric - the renovation has been carried out with great attention to detail and, thanks to the use of natural materials, the décor is quite serene. There’s a landscaped garden, a small natural stone swimming pool (with a jetstream), and a tree house for the children. 

Sasso al Melo uses renewable sources such as solar and wood combustion (with a centralized pellet boiler). Each apartment has a thermostat to regulate its own comfortable temperature and is equipped with a calorie counter to measure the actual heat used.

The charming medieval village, of Cutigliano, is a just 5-minute drive away and it’s only a short walk to Melo, where you can enjoy a delicious morning cappuccino. It’s also possible to make day trips to the Italian cities of Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Pistoia.

At Sasso al Melo you can enjoy peace and tranquillity in all its simplicity!
