Wonderful hosts and a beautiful, tranquil location, what more could you ask for? Great weather I guess - and we had that too despite more foreboding forecasts when we looked from home. Le Marche is a fantastic part of the world and we are delighted to have found a new great place to stay while we are here.

Thank you Sarah & Mark, Rusty & Jessie for this carefree holiday in Le Marche. The Hideaway rocks! Grazie mille xxx  R & H UK MAY 2011

Wonderful accommodation - really comfortable with everything thought of for a relaxing stay. Thanks for such a warm welcome after a long journey, a great start to our holiday. C (aged 4) has loved running around all this space and lizard spotting too. (not to mention searching out the fairy houses - thanks Mark!). A beautiful area to stay in and the books and maps helped us find our feet and the best ice cream places too! D & H & C & V UK JUNE 2011

Thank you for everything Sarah and Mark! What an amazing, beautiful place. We could stay longer!!!! What a warm welcome, the place is complete. Everything in the kitchen. It's cosy and nicely decorated. We like the surroundings, the walks, the ice creams in Amandola!! Thanks for your service. We hope to come back. Kind regards, R & A HOLLAND JUNE 2011


Thank you for another lovely stay. Our 2nd visit has been even more wonderful with better weather and outstanding mountain walks. Our most memorable moments were standing on top of the Diavolo on a beautiful, calm sunny day looking down at Lago di Pilato with snow still all around. Also great food everywhere especially a wonderful lunch at Osteria del Lago and meal at Locanda del Gusto. Thanks again for your hospitality and advice and suggestions. P & J UK JUNE 2011


Dear Sarah and Mark, what a wonderful place you have created!!! We enjoyed your lovely garden (including the fireflies and the Milky Way by night), the wonderful apartment ( you really thought of absolutely everything!) and your warm welcome (esp the muffins and the jam - yummie). We will recommend!

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

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.
