Hotel Leone a unique spot in the middle of Le Marche..... by Excellence Magazine 

In the heart of Italy, a little oasis offers its guests an authentic way to discover places and flavours of Marche, a very interesting Italian region.  Far away from commercial tourism, this is a place where tranquillity, natural beauty and cuisine meet to give life to a unique experience of its kind.

A Little bit about our story from Ancoraonline.it...

Sto parlando di Madeline e Tim Jones che arrivarono sette anni fa a Montelparo (FM) da Londra, passando per Singapore! Essi investirono tutto ciò che possedevano per trasformare, un antico palazzo del centro storico di questo paesino dell’entroterra fermano, in quello che ora è: un hotel boutique e un ristorante di lusso! L’Hotel Leone!

Hotel Leone as Hotel of the Week in The Jewish Chronicle...

In short, Hotel Leone is a labour of love by a couple who have single-handedly transformed this ancient palazzo into a stunning residence atop the medieval hilltop town of Montelparo in Le Marche, one of Italy's still to be discovered regions.

Owners Madeline and Tim Jones have created a masterpiece; a stunning hilltop boutique residence of genuine quality that has been crafted with love and care, shaking hands with regional architecture and at the same time offering a modern twist. It just works on so many levels for me. This is luxury boutique accommodation that ticks the box on stunning views from every corner, the imposing Sibillini mountain range on one side, the Adriatic coast of Ancona and Pesaro on the other.

Walking holiday review written by Andy Mossack on Trip Reporter...

Tim and Maddy Jones tailor their walking holiday in Le Marche to any standard of fitness with a different route every day if you prefer, including some along the Adriatic coast.  You could also have a few days off  sightseeing Le Marche’s main cities Ascoli and Fermo or the pilgrimage town of Loreto or Montaponne’s famous hat makers.

This was a memorable week, not just because it offered some stunning walking, or because of Le Marche’s unspoilt riches, but because of the Jones’ unique style of hospitality. A luxury boutique retreat with a family friendly conscience. You will want to come back and do it all over again.
