About Mark and Sarah
Well we first met in 1984 at a catering college in Nottingham and have been working together in the hospitality and catering industry ever since. We fell in love with Italy and especially the stunning Le Marche region, where we were very lucky to find "The Hideaway" in 2001. We immediatly knew it was the place we wanted to be as soon as we set eyes on the two derelict farm buildings and have been restoring our traditional Italian farmhouse ever since. Where ever possible, the original materials have been cleaned up & used again - keeping the building as close as it was 300 years ago. Along with enjoying our rescue dog, Jessie, we love growing fruit & veggies in our garden to share with our guests & living as healthy as possible, whilst loving our stunning, peaceful surroundings. We would like to share our little piece of Italy with you & we invite you to experience all the things we love about this traditional land. If we can be of any assistance, especially with property buying, restorantion or builders (as we have been through it all before) then please do not hesitate to contact us. We live in a little rustico just next door, so are on hand for our guests if need be.
Mark and Sarah purchased this Farmhouse in 2001
Why Mark and Sarah chose Amandola
The Hideaway is set in the most beautiful peaceful valley, which we just fell in love with the first time we drove down the private lane. Secure for children and dogs alike, we are immersed in hundreds of shades of green and wildlife and nature. As we are so passionate about the area, we have lots of local knowledge and love helping our guests have the most perfect holiday. From where to dine in a local pizzeria to top class fine dining restaurants, we can help plan your stay. There are markets to visit, hill-top towns to explore and museums, churches and art galleries a-plenty. Walkers and photographers alike will delight in the natural surroundings. There are so many walks in the Sibillini National Park to suit all levels and there are plenty of activities, from horse riding to paragliding to keep you busy during the day and fantastic restaurants at night. Please do come and let us give you a holiday to remember!

Perfect in Every Way
On arrival the Hideaway you can be assured of a warm welcome from the owners. Nestled in a beautiful valley is their stone farmhouse which has been lovingly converted into 3 luxury apartments. Oozing with rustic charm, yet boasting every modern convenience, tastefully furnished and well equipped. Start off by sitting in the beautifully manicured garden (a haven for wildlife and birds) and enjoy a glass of wine which will be waiting for you on arrival. There will also be enough groceries for your first few meals with Sarah’s home-made cakes to follow. Le Marche is not teaming with tourists. Here you can live like a local, buying wonderful fresh produce from the local markets and eating for very little in friendly family run restaurants. Do as little or as much as you want to – there are suggestions galore in the guide in your apartment. Any questions? - Don’t hesitate to ask - the owners live on site and are dedicated to giving you the best holiday experience ever. The countryside in this part of Italy will take your breath away. Drive around the deserted roads until you stumble upon one of the many charming hill top villages and step back to a forgotten time.
Another Wonderful Holiday at The Hideaway
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.
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.
Luxurious rural retreat
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.
A lovely, peaceful hideaway indeed
"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.
