Abbiamo solo 4 giorni in questo bello paradiso!! Grazie per la vostra accogliente ospitita (e per l' abbousloute colazione!!!)A & A & M ITALIA AUGUST 2011

 

We had a fantastic time an unexpectedly beautiful region, well worth exploring and re-exploring, and returning to our lovely apartment. The warm welcome made it perfect, we particulary appreciated the home-made maps and suggestions in the little brown book. Highlights for us: the Gola dell' Infernaccio (be careful - arrive early on peak days, many local people come, so carpark is full, but not many "brave" the walk): the stables at Lago di San Ruffino with great horseriding lessons for our kids (enough English spoken). The surprising proximity of the sea - San Benedetto is fun and exclusively Italian; Ascoli Piceno and the surrounding countryside: spectacular walks and drives (return from San Benedetto > Acquaviva, Offida, Castignano - really superb). Great shame to be going, but, like everyone else, plenty of vows to return R & P & L & S BELGIUM AUGUST 2011

 

Thank you to Mark and Sarah for an absolutely fantastic week here at The HIdeaway! We loved all the recommendations in the red folder and the little book - it made our relaxing week even more relaxing as we got to explore the best of the area without having to consult the guide book each day! We really appreciated the personal touches that made this place so special, from the recommendations to the homemade cakes (and pancakes!). We'll be back!  L & D UK AUGUST 2011

 

We had a great holiday! Thank you so much for making our stay so peaceful & relaxing! You have made a wonderful home here, thank you for sharing it with us....Some wonderful touches such as the wine, fruit, veg & yummy cakes. Thank you again Mark and Sarah, hope to see you again. L & A & I ITALY AUGUST 2011

 

Thank you Mark & Sarah for your wonderful hospitality & breakfasts! We have had a lovely time here & wish we could stay longer. This is a fantastic area & all your recomendations were great - the walking book extreamly useful! We hope to come back some day to enjoy all the walks we didn't habve time to do. The Hideaway is the perfect spot to come back to at the end of the day. All the best & many thanks again. J & B UK AUGUST 2011

What a fantastic introduction to what was our first time in Le Marche. Ideal location for the peace and quietwhilst within easy reach of places of interest.

Mark & Sarah - No one could be more welcoming than the two of you (along with your sweet dogs)! Thank you for the perfect hideaway - we have enjoyed every minute and hope to return in June for the flowers in Castelluccio! P.S Amanda and Mike were great hosts in your absence! J & S USA September 2011

 

Sarah & Mark, thank you so much for all your help and assistance which made all the difference during our first trip to Le Marche. you have thought of everything in the cosy accommodation. How kind of you to make the birthday cake - it was delicious, as was the produce you left us. We also enjoyed meeting your friends at the Abbey concert, which was a lovely thing to do - not forgetting Rusty the showman! We loved this region and hope to be back one day. Kind regards to you both. M & D UK October 2011

 

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. Your "Hideaway" is a little gem - secluded & calming & beautiful. We hope to be able to return & enjoy the region in more depth another time, all the best B & N & Family, Norway  April 2012

 

Dear S & M, thank you for the warm welcome when we arrived at The Hideaway for our honeymoon with our little boy. We started on the prosecco & muffins right away & prepared dinner with all the lovely stuff you had ready for us. We had a wonderful week thanks to Sarah's 'Lonely Planet' of Le Marche, which we loved the little notes and drawings. Our top three is: 1. Gola dell' Infernaccio (with a 10 month ld on our back, we didn't do the whole 4 hour walk) 2. Ascoli Piceno & although we made the mistake of going on a Monday morning when everything was closed, neverless it was amazing, 3. Lunch at Osteria del Lago. Congratulations on your Tripadvisor Excellence award, you totally deserve it! Love S & M & M, Netherlands  May 2012

 

Thank you Mark & Sarah. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at The Hideaway. The house is lovely, very comfortable, equipped with everything we needed & of course the setting is fantastic. The walking in the area was superb with the Sibilla mountain top being the pick of our favourites, but definitely one to leave the fdog at home! Thanks for all the tips in the welcome pack, all the other thoughtful touches (loved the muffins) & your helpfulness with all our questions. Best wishes,  S & V, UK  May 2012

 

We came to The Hideaway at the end of a three week tour & what a delightful & relaxing end it has been. We loved all the homely touched & your attention to detail. Thank you for sharing this lovely place with us, as well as all the local information. C & J UK June 2012

 

Again we enjoyed the beautiful area & a lovely stay at the apartment. Excellent place to walk, relax, enjoy & live in. We love your hospitality. It's cosy over here. thanks for all A & E, Netherlands, June 2012

 

We are so glad we found "The Hideaway" - we love it!!! We had a wonderful & relaxing time here & everywhere we explored. You are both superb hosts & thank you so much for the excellent jams & cup cakes etc. Stargazing was very appreciated & we will also miss your cute dogs. We hope to come back! Thank you. C, P, M & E Sweeden June 2012

 

We stay in apartments in Italy every year & this was the most comfortable & well equipped ever. Many thanks. It was our first acquaintance with the Sibillini's & after managing 3 summits & 2 gorges (try the Fiastrone which is much more exciting than the Infernaccio). We are hooked! Great cultural visits, Ascoli takes some beating but Tolentino came a close second. Not the best area for Geocaching but managed to bag 6! N & A UK July 2012

 

What a superb place to spend the holidays! With both mountains & beaches so close by, there are so much to choose from. And we have enjoyed it all. The Hideaway is a beautiful place & Sarah & Mark have been the best hosts. Hope to return one day, thank you. A & A & A & A & H, Norway July 2012

 

Mark & Sarah, a wonderful stay at The Hideaway. A place to come back as the region is stunning & beautiful. Mark & Sarah - you're great hosts & the apartment is comfortable for a relaxing stay. We enjoyed it for every minute. Thank you for your hospitlity. If Marche is our hoiday destination next year, we'll meet again!!!! P & E Netherlands July 2012

 

Like we said: we are afraid we are going to have to come back - & so we did. Also this time we enjoyed our stay very much and we had a real kitchen this time. Our tips: Santa Vittoria in Mattinano, Grottamare - Baia Blanca, Macerata & Cappuccino at Bar Flory, Comunanza. Grazie di tutto. Arrivederci T & S Netherlands July 2012

 

We feel so lucky having found this very beautiful "Hideaway". It's a pitty we have booked only 1 week. Just followed the tips in the booklet & discovered great places. Fantastic hosts! Great places! See ya! (Maybe next year). D & K & N & B Belgium July 2012

 

Thanks for the beautiful stay. The week was too short to do all the things we wanted to do, so maybe we will come back next year J & E & Children August 2012

 

After short notice we took a short break to explore Le Marche. Luckily Sarah & Mark had "The Stables" available so here we are! We have had a lovely few days, swam in the sea at Pedaso, the pool here and a mountain lake. This apartment has met all our needs and more. Thank you Sarah & Mark T  & B & Italy August 2012

 

We immediately felt at home here! Thanks for the very warm welcome, it is much appreciated! J & B & Children  Belgium August 2012

 

Dear Sarah & Mark, Thank you so much for a wonderful week. You're great hosts! Our second year in The Marches and there is still so much to see! One of our favourites is Castelluccio in Monte Sibillini. Great walking with the children. It must be spectacular in the Spring with all the flowers. Just driving around and visit the little old towns. We'll be back! Thanks! M& M & O & N Netherands August 2012

 

Lovely stay and warm welcome much appreciated. The terrace was a good place to unwind on the first few days, with wonderful views and then a good place to come back to after visits to towns and stunning mountain scenery. Many thanks. C & R UK August 2012

 

What can we say? A wonderful warm welcome (wine and cake very much appreciated), wonderful peaceful views, super comfy bed......and the best bit - use of the bbq, herbs and splendid homegrown tomatoes. The book of things to do, see and eat was written with such knowledge and passion for this beautiful area, it bought tears to our eyes. Oh and then there was Rusty! Looking forward to another stay next year in the Spring! K & M, UK August 2012

 

This place is heaven on earth. Beautiful surroundings and relaxing atmosphere. The facilities are incredible: pool, gazebos, sun loungers, table tennis table - everything ready for use. Home grown tomatoes and herbs were delicious. We recommend the place called Mamma Rosa in Ortezzano - they serve the best pizza in the world. Sarah and  Mark are amazing hosts and have really put their hearts into the business. P & L & A & J & K, Poland & UK August 2012

 

After already four times in Le Marche, we have never been to this side before. The Hideaway is a beautiful place with very friendly and helpful owners. Mark and Sarah, thanks so much for your hospitality. We will definitely return. The house was very convenient and had all the things we required. Next time we will stay longer than just one week. Regards, G & J & L & T & R and thanks for letting us use your guitar Netherlands August 2012

 

Dear Sarah and Mark, next time we will spend more than only one week at this wonderful place. Many thanks for the warm welcome after our long travel, for the cupcakes (delicious!!!), for the friendliness, for everything. We really felt at home at Il Nascondiglio. We also enjoyed: eating out at Locanda del Gusto in Comunanza, having ice cream at Gelatoria Antonini in Fermo (great views towards the seaside). Try the brown pistacchio ice cream! As usual in Marche, the beaches between Porto Recanati and Numana. Sarnano and Amandola : how beautiful! T & A & A Germany August 2012

 

Thanks for the stay. We had a great relaxing time. Sleep in's every day & the joy of quiet. We used all the great herbs & tomatoes as well as the pool. Many thanks for the local "Lonely Planet", the great cooking & weather forecasting service. Hope to see you again here or in Germany, S & F & D & R Germany and New Zealand August 2012

 

Dear Sarah & Mark, You made it very easy for us to enjoy our stay here!! We found a perfect accommodation and very polite hosts! Thanks for everything and we might be back soon to ruin your garden completely (some of us!) A & A & L & C September 2012

 

Thank you Sarah & Mark, you've created a lovely "posticirco" here. it's the best equipped and most comfortable accommodation we've ever stayed in. We loved: Your welcome pack and subsequent muffins, your little brown book and maps, the lizzards, Rusty & Jesse, the view from the sitting room, fresh truffles, latte macchiato's, cornetto's, sausages and wild boar, hilltop villages, mountain views, lakes and the and the castle, a lovely spot. PS Amanda looked after us beautifully too! G & N UK September 2012

 

 

Abgelegen Luxus - Januar vielleicht nicht der beste Monat im Le Marche, aber das Kinderbett war eine fantastische Entdeckung. In einem abgelegenen Tal von Schönheit, dieser geschmackvoll restaurierte Gebäude bieten ausgezeichnete Unterkunft und einem warmen luxuriösen Urlaub zu Hause.

Die Heizung funktionierte sehr gut und die Betten sind wirklich komfortabel. Schöne Möbel, und ein gut ausgestattetes Küche Selbstversorgung einfach.

Die kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten, wie z.b. auf der Wein und die hausgemachte Marmelade und Olivenöl alle noch zu der Erfahrung bei.

Sarah und Mark sind großzügig und freundliche Gastgeber, und wir haben unseren Aufenthalt wirklich genossen. VR Januar

 

 

Wir werden wieder dort sein - Großartige Unterkunft mit einem ausgezeichneten Abschluss macht den Aufenthalt sehr komfortabel. Die Heizung funktionierte großartig, genauso gut weil es ziemlich kalt war. Die Rollläden haben den erlaubt haben super geschlafen jeden Abend. Dieses Hotel bringt friedlich in ein anderes Niveau, das einzige Störung ist die Ferne cockeral oder Hund. Mark & Sarah wirklich Mühe, damit Sie Ihren Urlaub so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. einheimische Produkte (ich hoffe, Sie lassen Fig Marmelade für meinen nächsten Besuch) bei unserer Ankunft scheint die Norm zu sein mit jedem Besucher und es war der Geburtstag meiner Frau während wir dort waren und Sarah freundlicherweise eine Überraschung Geburtstagskuchen für meine Frau. Lassen Sie sich nicht von dem Preis für das warme Hühner im butchers, sie sind köstlich und den Geschmack Hähnchen mag sollte wirklich. Ich hoffe, Sie Urlaub ist so groß wie unseres waren. S + D

 

 

Ein wunderschöner Ort und ein toller Ort für die Kinder - Wir landeten, dieser Ort ist für jeden etwas dabei und wir Auswahl von 41 Jahren bis zu 5 Monaten! Der Hideaway ist ein tolles Hotel und die Lage ist toll. Sarah und Mark waren großartige Gastgeber mit Liebe zum Detail und speziell unsere Kinder waren gut um sie gekümmert wird einem TFT wirklich schön Kinderbett (kein reisen!). Für das Baby und unserer 4-jährigen Tochter hatte ihr eigenes Besteck, Teller durch zu ihrer eigenen Duschgel! Der Garten ist super für Kinder zu, viele massig Platz und sehr sicher mit bezaubernden kleinen Türen versteckt im Garten Herr Squirrel, Herr endlos...es und Freunde! Für Erwachsene), es ist wie ein zweites Zuhause, (außer hat dieses Hotel eine Swimmingpool) und donnerstags Landschaft ist wirklich fantastisch. Es gibt sehr wenig über das Le Marche im Reiseführer, aber es gibt so viel zu sehen und zu tun. Sarah und Mark haben ein toller Führer stellten sie uns zusammen für die Gegend und viele Sachen innerhalb einer halben Stunde fährt. Die Berge ist atemberaubend. atemberaubend jeden Tag unseres zweiwöchigen Aufenthalts. extra goldenen Sternen zu finden für einen Babysitter für uns (die lokalen Englisch Lehrer), so dass wir hatten sogar eine Nacht auf unserer eigenen!!! Kann es noch besser werden dieses??!!!

 

 

Ein verstecktes Juwel - Als 8-köpfige Gruppe [ 2 Familien) wir hatten das Apartment und 2 B&Bs. Die Qualität und der Standard dieser gruppiert ist ausgezeichnet - alles war sehr geschmackvoll. Die Liebe zum Detail beschreiben Mark und Sarah Konzept alles, sie ehrlich Leute das Gefühl gegeben, dort willkommen zu sein. Die Umgebung ist atemberaubend und ist ein großartiger Ausgangspunkt, um die Stadt zu erkunden dieses exquisite Teil Italiens - und ein stiller Ort, um zu chillen zurückerstattet. Sie sollten das Frühstück - beide Mark und Sarah backen super Brot und Kuchen. Wir hatten einen super Urlaub in La Marche und freuen uns auf Erkundung dieser außergewöhnlichen Region im Winter und Frühjahr; der Hideaway wieder ganz oben auf unserer Liste.

 

 

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. S & B AUSTRALIA 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! B & S & J USA July 2013

 

Very relaxing, peaceful place, with brilliant hosts Mark & Sarah. Great places to visit in the tip book with great loca restaurants. Accommodation is very home from home, sure we will be back xx P.S Rusty & Jess are lovely & the vegetable patch is amazing. M & P & N & L & L UK July 2013

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

N & F UK September 2013

 

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
