Hotel Leone is located in a beautiful historic palazzo in the tiny medieval hamlet of Montelparo with amazing views across the rolling Le Marche countryside to the glittering blue Adriatic Sea. Positioned in the foothills of the Sibillini National Park, the property is not far from the coast and the bustling seaside resort of San Benedetto del Tronto.
This chic boutique hotel has been completely renovated with the most accurate attention to detail whilst keeping as many of the original features as possible. A charming mix of contemporary and antique furnishings fill the hotel with character and ambiance making it the perfect spot for a get-away weekend or for a longer stay, permitting you to explore some more of this amazing region and partake in some fantastic walking.
The accommodation is spread over 3 floors and consists of 8 en-suite guest rooms and suites, all individually designed with comfort and space in mind. The beautiful common areas are stylish and plentiful with a large drawing room, the Art Deco bar, a reading area and a super dining room with vaulted ceiling, offering some excellent local fare. Weather permitting, you may also dine on the romantic terrace under the stars. Deep underground there is also a cool cellar just waiting for you to sample some of the delicious wine stored here.
Outside the sensational panorama stretches from the Adriatic sea to the Sibillini mountains and relaxing on the terrace after a day out is just paradise. A beautiful infinity pool is set amidst scented flowering borders with sundbeds and umbrellas allowing you to completely relax before taking a refreshing dip. Should you wish to escape the sunshine, a shady lounge terrace furnished with comfy chairs and hammocks completes the picture at this little slice of paradise nestling in the spectacular Le Marche hills.

A great location, fairly close to airports, major roads and the beaches. The scenery in this area is fantastic with many lovely hilltop towns to visit and stunning views. It was relatively cheap to eat out and the food was excellent wherever we went. Le Marche is a bit like Tuscany without the tourists with the added bonus of being close to the Adriatic coast.
