I have to admit, I’d never heart about Sassi, Italy until these images landed in my inbox. I feel as if I’ve somehow stumbled upon a goldmine. A goldmine made up of ancient caves and rock formations, rolling hills and stunning vistas as far as the eye can see. This particular series of images from Rebecca Lindon will, without question, have me dreaming of Italian vacations for weeks to come, I’m sure.

From Rebecca Lindon….In October 2012 my family and I headed to Sassi in southern Italy to stay in a stone-age cave that has been beautifully restored by philanthropist Daniele Kihlgrin. Daniele bought the caves and has created some basic but fantastically stylish caves that sit within the rock face of Sassi. The cave itself was lit primarily by candlelight and was minimal in decoration but had everything we could possibly need. Each morning we dined on local produce in an ancient church and by day we roamed around Sassi in the beating sun. The daytime views were breathtaking and in the evening the sound of church bells echoed across the rocks and haunting opera singing filled the narrow streets. We created memories I will never forget.
