If you enjoy lounging on a sun terrace, dipping in and out of an infinity pool and savouring gourmet cuisine whilst soaking up peaceful surroundings and beautiful scenery then Hotel Leone is the place for you. It’s all about the simple pleasures.
Situated in a historic palazzo within a medieval hilltop town in central Italy, Hotel Leone is a small privately owned boutique hotel offering luxurious accommodation, delicious food and friendly yet unobtrusive service. The rooms are a stylish blend of antique and contemporary furnishings, the pool and terrace look out over stunning countryside, and the gorgeous Le Marche region is bursting with culture-rich towns, national parks and hidden beaches waiting to be discovered. This is a lovely retreat for those who want to be indulged in a relaxed and informal way.
The hotel is located in Montelparo, a picturesque and authentic hilltop village full of history and character. Just a short stroll from the hotel you will find a couple of bars and a delicatessen, or you could follow one of the local walking trails and soak up the magnificent views of the coast and the Sibillini Mountains. The gorgeous Le Marche countryside, dotted liberally with art galleries, castles and churches, stretches out around you, and there are endless activities on offer, from wine tasting, truffle hunting, and cooking lessons to hiking, biking, horse riding and hot air ballooning. Don’t miss the legendary Frasassi Caves, the Basilica della Santa Casa in Loreto and the open-air theatre in Macerata.
The nearest airport is Ancona, just over an hour away, but you could also fly into Pescara, Rimini, Perugia or Rome. The nearest train station is Pedaso, or you could hire a car and drive, but be aware that the hotel has limited parking spaces. Airport transfers can be arranged.

The hotel has eight individually designed bedrooms which all come complete with en-suite bathrooms, high quality linens, air-conditioning, flat screen televisions, fast free WiFi, mini-bars and luxurious toiletries. The rooms, many of which are blessed with picture-postcard views, come in twin, double, suite or apartment format, and within the hotel you will also find a welcoming Art Deco style bar, a 15th century brick vaulted restaurant and a salon which leads out onto the terrace.
From the salon you can walk out onto a panoramic terrace where you can enjoy afternoon tea, a pre-dinner gin and tonic and some wonderful views. And set amidst flowering borders you will find the infinity swimming pool complete with sunbeds, umbrellas, hammocks and a lounge area.
