Amandola Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 High Quality Apartments in Peaceful Surroundings With Nature All Around

Are you looking for a chance to experience 'real' Italy & get away from it all? Well The Hideaway is your perfect holiday retreat. Our beautiful farmhouse is in the heart of the Le Marche countryside near Amandola & is surrounded by nature, with peaceful valley views. The apartments have been traditionally renovated - cotto flooring & wooden beams accompany modern day necessities. Everything is provided to ensure you have an enjoyable stay including extra touches like a welcome hamper, bathrobes & toiletries.

Set in 2.5 acres, you can relax in the garden, chill out on a hammock, play games or laze in the pool before a busy day exploring the unspoilt Sibillini area . Nature lovers will be amazed by eagles, wild boar & porcupines nearby & the clear night sky. Sample delicious local cuisine & wine (of course) & visit one of the many colourful festivals. With hilltop towns to explore, museums, theatres, mountain walks & endless outdoor activities, there really is something for everyone

Our beautiful area is delightful in every season, so why not try a different time of year for a change?

In Spring, the magical carpets of flowers on the mountains of the Sibillini National Park are simply stunning. With wild orchids, narsissi, cyclamen and violets, they are a photographers delight. If you love hiking then the mild spring temperatures makes exploring the mountains easier than in the heat of the summer. The Spring blossom of almond, cherry and apple and fresh greens of the new tree growth are beautiful.

There are many great markets to visit and festivals all around. You will even find a Frog Racing Festival! Easter Celebrations to attend. Any rain tends to come in brief shower and there is usually still snow on the mountain tops.

In Autumn we have the the ideal temperatures for hiking or cycling in the Sibillini Mountains once again and the ever-changing Autumn colours are simply stunning.

Then there is the grape harvest in September and a visit to our local vineyard is a must. With an interesting museum of old wine making equipment and vats you will be shown how the wine used to be produced and how it is produced now. Then of course there is the free wine tasting - try the Vin Cotto - it's delicious!

November is the olive harvest and a visit to the local press in an interesting experience. You can even take part helping to pick and process the olives.

Other Autumn festivals include, Apiro (near Cingoli) & Fermo - Sagra della polenta, Montecassiano - Sagra del pesce (fish), Cupramontana - grape festival in the heart of Verdicchio wine country in September, Piandimileto (near Urbino) - Mushroom fair, Lapedona (near Fermo) - Sagra del Vino Cotto (don't miss this one!), Arcevia - Sagra dell'uva (grape festival)

As Winter arrives, snow falls and the crisp white descends all around. The roads are kept immaculate and even on our local lane, the snow plough clears the road several time a day if necessary.

With skiing and snow-boarding nearby at Sassotetto and the new ski lodge, the runs are suitable for beginners & intermediates.There is even a baby run (for children and the less adventurous adults!).

Our local Boxing Day Live Nativity must not be missed - complete with live animals, music, candle-light and costumes of the time - simply magical.

Try truffle hunting - a speciality of the Amandola region. We can arrange truffle hunting trips or even wild boar hunting.

So whatever the season, each has it's own, beautiful qualities and will be sure to delight you.

Looking for something different to do on holiday?

Le Marche is the ideal area to relax and take time to do something new. From cookery courses, where you can learn to make delicious local pasta dishes, to quad biking tours to visiting the local designer outlet stores. There are mule trekking adventures in the mountains, sky diving, hot air ballooning and white water rafting . You certainly won't be bored on your holiday with us!

About Mark and Sarah

We are Mark and Sarah and we met at our first day of catering college in Nottingham, UK, 30 years ago and have been together ever since.

After owning and working in restaurants in England, we visited Le Marche once and fell in love. There really was no going back!

Now we are loving living 'the good life' in our little piece of Italy. Trying to be self-sufficient and learning ways of the countryside, while sharing our experiences, our knowledge and our love for this beautiful area with our lovely guests at our farmhouse 'Hideaway'.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Mark and Sarah purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Mark and Sarah chose Amandola

As soon as we saw the farmhouse, we fell in love with it and just knew this was the place we wanted to be. The stunning area, peace and tranquillity, nature all around us, wonderful restaurants, stunning mountain walks and fantastic festa's.

What makes this farmhouse unique

There was so much to do and see and explore. We were hooked!

As a keen photographer, I am forever taking photos as round every corner there is a delight. Artist and photographers will be amazed at the colours and light at every time of the year and the peace and relaxing atmosphere makes the Hideaway the perfect working environment.

The stunning views, the ever changing colours of the countryside, the bird song and nature, fireflies in the summer, fresh air and country walks.

It all makes The Hideaway the most magical place to be!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Another Wonderful Holiday at The Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
Having just returned from another 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.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at The Hideaway in September. The location is breathtaking, the accommodation is comfortable and very well equipped and the hosts are marvellous.
We were greeted with home baked cakes, a selection of herbs and vegetables from the garden and a bottle of wine. What more do you need?
Sarah and Mark have gone to great lengths to make sure that you get the very best from your holiday and have created a wonderful home from home in Le Marche.

A lovely, peaceful hideaway indeed

  • 5 of 5
"The Hideaway" offered us a wonderfully peaceful stay in lovely surroundings. Our apartment was well furnished, and our hosts, Mark and Sarah, were beyond welcoming and helpful. We found the property's location perfect for access to all parts of the Sibillini National Park, as well as only a short drive to the marvels of Ascoli Piceno. We enjoyed eating at nearby restaurants recommended by our hosts, and eating home-cooked meals on our private terrace in the moon-light. And, in the heat of our visit, we were always grateful for the relief provided by a dip in cool water of the Hideaway's pool. We would certainly return on another visit.

Luxurious rural retreat

  • 5 of 5
The Hideaway is an idyllic spot from where you can enjoy the delights of rural Italy. The accommodation is very high quality and located in a very peaceful spot, with extensive gardens to relax in. It's relatively close to two towns for shops and restaurants; and accessible from several airports. The owners are on hand to provide help and advice; and you'll be made to feel very welcome (especially by Jess the dog as long as you throw her stick!). I had a very relaxing and delightful stay and would strongly recommend this accommodation.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
Had the fortune to spend two weeks at the Hideaway and it was everything - and more - that we had anticipated. The apartment is one of the best equipped we've experienced and is situated in an absolutely idyllic spot amid the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Mark and Sarah were perfect hosts and the goodies left in our apartment on arrival was most welcome. They were most informative of places to visit and nothing was too much trouble.
The swimming pool was fantastic and was an ideal place to cool off in the heat of the day.
It was our first time in Les Marche and we enjoyed the experience and coupled with great accommodation made our visit to the Hideaway one to remember. Many thanks.

The Hideaway nestles in a picturesque & peaceful valley between Amandola & Comunanza. With the stunning Sibillini National Park to explore, flora & fauna aplenty, we are ideally located for winter skiing & year round hiking.

There are walks direct from the house along our quiet lanes-watch out for the golden eagles from Montefalcone! Our nearby town of Amandola has a delightful piazza, where you can sit outside over a coffee & watch the local life go by. Visit the markets, shops & restaurants - the traditional cuisine is delicious & wine inexpensive. Look out for the many year round local festivals, from the Medieval Palio to sampling truffles & other delicacies to suit all tastes.

There are day trips to discover the fascinating towns of Sarnano, Servigliano, Offida, Norcia, Assisi & Loreto (to name a few) plus the varied beaches of the Adriatic, all just a short drive away. Museums & churches, art & history, nature & astronomy are all waiting for you to explore within easy reach.

Other Activities: Mule trekking, bird watching, skiing 30 minutes away at Sassotetto, beautiful scenery for artistic inspiration, paragliding, cross-country skiing

Golf: The nearest golf courses are at the beautiful Conero near Ancona (1 hour 20 minutes drive) and I Lauri near Pedaso (40 minutes drive).

Ski: Skiing is available at Sassotetto, Pintura and Madelena, all around a 45 minute drive. Although the ski resorts are fairly small, there are runs to suit all abilities and the views are stunning.
