Hotel Leone Offers a number of creative retreats for all interests and abilities.  Hotel Leone is in a truly unique setting.  Perched above the rolling countryside and nestled on the edge of the picture-postcard medieval hill-top town of Montelparo in Le Marche, Central Italy and allow you to experience an authentic stay within a small, Italian village .

 

We combine the perfect balance of creativity, relaxation, sightseeing, a little bit of culture and luxury accommodation and all tailored to each individual group.

 

The Le Marche landscapes have inspired artists for centuries, provides the most breathtaking backdrops for any painting holiday, photography course or quilting and knitting retreat.

 

Have you ever dreamed about taking part in a writing retreat, yoga retreat, knitting retreat or painting  in Italy?   Now’s your chance.  Stress free, relaxing, fresh air and stunning views – what more could you want?

All our retreats are for small groups only.  There could be up to 24 people but more typically between 12-15.  We have 12 luxury, en-suite bedrooms so you can share with a friend or bring a partner.

If you do want to bring along a friend or partner who doesn’t want to participate in the course they can still come along.  They’ll enjoy the same delicious meals and can join you on any of the excursions included in your course as many other activities – find out more about what non-participating partners can do here.

 

Below is our great selection of creative retreats and activity based holidays and vacations over the coming months set in the inspiring Le Marche countryside in Central Italy.
