Amandola, Le Marche




Having just returned from a wonderful holiday at The Hideaway, Amandola, I feel I must recommend it as a perfect place to relax in the beautiful countryside of Le Marche. The apartment was well equiped - we wanted for nothing - and Sarah & Mark were always on hand to advise us and give us information about the walks, sightseeing and the coastline - which is only a 40 min. drive away. At this spring time of year, the locals were busy ploughing the fields, the blossom was on the trees and everything a picture, green and fresh, but snow still remained on the tops of the mountains. Sarah & Mark also have a wealth of knowledge of where to eat in the area - great recommendations.

I recommend it as a quiet relaxing place to stay but with many amenities around, with the true feel of Italy : the Italians are truly friendly people too.  GP UK April 2013


Our second stay and another heavenly stay. Lovely to see Rusty and Jess again, listen to the birdsong and eat wonderful food. We'll be back again very soon. K & M UK May 2013


What fantastic hospitality! Apartment clean and very attractive! Slept like a king. Will definitely recommend. D UK May 2013


What a gem of a place to find - welcomed with wine, jam and carrot cakes and wonderful hosts, Mark and Sarah. Their little book of helpful hints plus map were a treasure and used to great extent in our week. The peace and quiet, birds, the view, the snow on the mountains does not come any better. Thank you.

Thank you for a lovely holiday. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. Olivia loved exploring the garden and looking for "faries" in the evening. T R F UK June 2013

Many thanks to Sarah & Mark for this wonderful week at "The Hideaway". From the tips to the location, everything was great. Hoping for your success in the future! K & C & L & S & T GERMANY July 2013


We feel so lucky to have found The Hideaway. It is the perfect place to relax & to have as a home base whilst exploring the Sibillini National Park. Things we enjoyed most in the area were: 1. Ridge walks & Meadows (M. Sibilla & M. Vettore), the flowers were so beautiful, it was cook & the views fabulous from the tops of the mountains. 2. Learning about the rich cultural/ agriculture/ history of the area (museum in Amandola & nature trail at Garulla). 3. Very friendly & patient people of Le Marche! 4. Cooking with fresh ingredients & eating on our terrace. 5. Warm hospitality of Sarah & Mark & the dogs. We'll remember the place fondly, recommend it to others & hope to return someday. Thank you!

Thanks again for the wonderful week and everyone should go to Mirela at La Conca! E & J & S & M & L HOLLAND August 2013


Mark & Sarah, thank you for providing such a beautifully restored hideaway. We have throughly enjoyed our stay thanks to the splendidly equipped cottage. You have worked really hard to make people feel welcome & it has been very much appreciated. The muffins & jam were delicious after a long, tiring journey. Thanks also to "the little brown book & maps". They were really really useful & helped to make the most of our stay. Gorge "Gola dell Infernaccio" is not to be missed. We hope to come again soon. N & H UK August 2013


Three wonderful relaxing weeks here! Agree with all the previous comments with previous visitors, but would like to add that early August is very good for seeing the Persied meteors (shooting stars) especially to the right hand side of the oak tree in the left of the garden. "Night Sky 2" is  a very good app to look at the constellations with! Would love to come again with more of the family. A & P & S & S UK August 2013


Just like our kids already said (and did twice), it is great here & we really hope to come back in the future. K & L HOLLAND August 2013


We spent here our first family holiday and we just loved it! Beautiful place, Mark & Sarah made you feel like at home & we spent a lovely time with all the guests. Hope to come back soon. M & F & R ITALY August 2013


We have really enjoyed our time at "Il Nascondiglio". The apartment is all we had hoped for & your hospitality has been outstanding. Your 'top tips' book & hand drawn maps were really helpful. We have enjoyed meeting the other guests - a very sociable place to stay. Shall not hesitate to recommend to friends & family. Many thanks. M & J & H & S UK August 2013


Everything was as we had thought it would be & then some.... We are in the 'trade' & what counts is the little things & Mark & Sarah have got it just right. Not too much but enough to make us feel at home. Thanks again. We needed a complete break before another year of hard graft. Best regards T G F UK August 2013


A week just hasn't been long enough! Thank you so much for the lovely muffins Sarah. What an amazing plave, fancy swapping? La Conca was just delightful but wouldn't have been half as good if you both hadn't been there too! Thanks again & we will miss Rusty each evening coming to pay us a visit. T S F UK August 2013


A beautiful setting, so relaxing & wonderful holiday. From the moment we saw the view & enjoyed our welcome muffins, we knew we were going to have a great stay. Mark & Sarah were both welcoming & informative. Lots of great tips & information in your book! We will definitely be back. P & K UK September 2013


We had a beautiful, peaceful time in your little oasis of calm. You have been wonderful hosts & we can not tank you enough for taking the time to help us with our car hire issues & for taking us to La Conca, so we could learn some Italian cooking from someone who knows what she is talking about. We can say for certain we will be back. See you soon Sarah & Mark. F & B UK September 2013


In our second year here we stayed longer & in the larger apartment. The most relaxing place we have ever visited. the Hideaway is the perfect antidote to the pressures of everyday living. Just fantastic. We are fixing our dates for next year already! 5 *****'s

Thank you so much Sarah and Mark for the most wonderful, relaxing break. This place is perfect and so quiet! We will definitely be back! A & K UK September 2013


We enjoyed the week here at The Hideaway. Sarah and Mark and wonderful hosts! Thank you so much for the goodies. Everything more than exceeded our expectations and the only drawback was that we couldn't stay longer (and eat more muffins). We will definitely miss the beauty and quiet of the area and the comfort of the apartment. We will be back. B & M Germany October 2013
