Origins

Hotel Leone was originally a 15th century palazzo, converted into a hotel in the 1960's before closing in 1976 and was rediscovered in 2008 by Madeline and Tim Jones. Over the next four years the couple lovingly restored the building bringing Hotel Leone to life and it really is an incredible achievement. Rightly proud of the good service, exciting food and extensive wine offering Tim and Madeline offer an authentic Italian escape.

The Review

Nestled on a hilltop in rural Montelparo, Hotel Leone is an authentic Italian retreat where guests are invited to indulge all that the region has to offer.

Hotel Leone has been brought to life by English couple Tim and Madeline Jones and they have created an extraordinary home from home with uninterrupted views of the rolling hills of Le Marche.

Ecofriendly and beautifully furnished, this luxury hotel really captures the essence of Le Marche and draws in the modern discerning traveler with ease and charm. This is the sort of hotel where you become friends with your hosts as Tim and Madeline share with you their passion for the region.

Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast on the terrace and a lazy morning by the pool or set off to explore one of the 3 national parks, go in search of truffles, enjoy a wine tour or perhaps outlet shopping is your interest. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do. After an afternoon’s activities it’s time for the daily cocktail at the impressive art deco Empire Bar and watch the sun set from the terrace.

Hotel Leone is where you enjoy the finer things in life and at the heart of it all is a dedication to great wine, food and good service. Tim, a talented chef has created an impressive menu to be enjoyed in their atmospheric restaurant and Madeline a trained sommelier is on hand to show you to their cellar and assist with pairing the perfect wine with your dinner choice. What more could you ask for!
