The best rural retreat you could ever imagine!

I travelled with 2 friends, and we stayed for 4 days (booked on hollidaylettings.co.uk) after 5 crazy days in Rome. The house itself is amazing- beautiful and completely new. It has a fireplace and an a large above-ground pool. The view is incredible: a small lake (Sun Ruffino), green hills and mountains in the background. There are 3 double bedrooms (2 with queen beds, and 1 with 2 single beds)- one of them with an on-suit bathroom, another bathroom (with a tub) and an Attic room which will be perfect for kids (up to 3). It's fully furnished and equipped, including a great kitchen. It's located in the Marche region, province of Fermo, near the town of Amandola- a peaceful place, nestled between a nature reserve and farmlands, which I found absolutely perfect for a quiet getaway- but you absolutely need a car for the entire stay. There are only 2 other buildings near, so no noise or bothersome neighbours, but you don't feel completely isolated on the other hand. You can walk to 2 restaurants (10-15 min walk), one of them is a pizzeria- very authentic and quaint. There is horseback riding (only for those with experience) and boats for rent on the other side of the lake, and hiking, of course. The sea is about an hour away- we went to San Benedetto Del Tronto- and explored beautiful medieval villages on the way. It's also close to the ski slopes (about 40 minutes away), but it wasn't relevant for us since we travelled in the summer. This is the place for people who want a quiet slow-paced vacation, enjoying the outdoors and exploring the region, as well as being lazy by the pool eating figs you picked from the nearby tree. Can't wait to go back!!!
