Set in the historic centre of the picturesque hilltop town of Montelparo, Palazzo Leone boasts charming rooms, a gourmet restaurant, swimming pool and a panoramic terrace surrounded by the breathtaking Marche countryside. The hotel, a fifteenth century building, has been thoughtfully restored and retains the charm and character of the original building. This is an excellent base to explore this surprising region of Italy, not overrun by tourists.
The spacious rooms and suites are decorated in an elegant and personal style and fitted with parquet or wooden floors and dark-wood furnishings. Each is uniquely decorated and has airconditioning, a seating area, a flat-screen TV, minibar, coffee and tea making facilities and a (laptop) deposit box. Bathrooms feature a walk-in shower or bath, heated towel rail, bathrobes, hairdyer and complimentary Duck Island luxury toiletries. There is also an apartment available (sleeps up to 4) with a full kitchen.
At the Palazzo Leone you enjoy a drink in the Art Deco style bar or have an excellent afternoon tea (on request).
The gourmet restaurant boasts vaulted ceilings and a garden courtyard and specialises in traditional regional and Mediterranean cuisine. Choose your wine directly from the extensive wine cellar. Breakfast is buffet style and includes cereals, cold meat and cheeses, various breads with jams and other preserves, fresh fruit juices, tea and coffee and with an option of having freshly cooked eggs.
