About Sara Quick

I live in the UK with my husband, 2 sons and chocolate labrador, Marmite. We worked in Italy for 3 years from 2001-2004 and fell in love with the country. We travelled around Italy looking for the ideal spot for a holiday home and settled on Le Marche. It is stunningly beautiful; we love the mountains, beaches, food and wine and have made lots of friends in Sarnano. We go back as often as my husband's work schedule allows.

Sara Quick purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Sara Quick chose Sarnano

We bought in the spa town of Sarnano as it is stunningly beautiful. We love the fact that we are on the edge of the Sibillini National park (great for skiing, walking and Fiastra Lake), close to lots of hilltop towns for days out and also have easy access to the beaches on the Adriatic Coast. Sarnano is only 1 hr and 15 mins from Ancona Airport and is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

What makes this chalet unique

The property is located in Poggio, just 5 minutes out of Sarnano. The views of the Sibillini mountain range from the south facing terrace are simply stunning. There are lots of fantastic, reasonably priced restaurants, osterias and pizzerias nearby. You will have the benefits of the property and enclosed garden to yourselves. It is perfect for a relaxing family holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just a note to tell you that we enjoyed a wonderful holiday at your property - it was everything we wanted and more. Our first visit to Le Marche was full of pleasure. The scenery is fantastic (what a view from your property - Luca said it was the best view an Sarnano and we would not argue with him!). Our favourite seaside town was Porto San Giorgio. We had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. September was ideal for us as neither of us enjoy too much sun but the temperature was still lovely and warm."

"Just to let you know that we had a great time and would recommend the house to anyone!!"

"We have had a wonderful holiday - your chalet is really lovely - it has everything you could possibly need, though the real bonus was the amazing view.... you've chosen the perfect location! And to cap it all, we saw the fireflies on several evenings, but best of all on our last night...I walked up the lane and stood amongst them all flickering around under the trees - it was magical".

Stunning Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 5 day break in this stunning home-from-home in the beautiful hills overlooking Sarnano. This was a short break with 2 adults and a 2 year old and we never had a dull moment exploring the area or sitting on the Veranda with a glass of vino soaking up the views. The guides in the house meant we were never short of things to do or places to eat and the evening light shows provided by the fireflies were particularly spectacular. Our son was fascinated by the tractors working the nearby fields too!

This was our second visit to Sarnano and we will definitely be back again. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay.
