Why visit Le Marche

Are you a dab hand with a paint-brush or do you want to develop your skills?

Have you ever thought about joining a painting holiday in Italy?   Now’s your chance.  Stress free, relaxing, fresh air and stunning views – what more could you want?

Our inspiring and relaxing painting holidays with professional and renowned tutors are designed to help both experienced painters and beginners to release their inner artist.

Hotel Leone is a unique setting in the historic centre of Montelparo in Central Italy perched above the rolling hills with breath-taking views of the mountains, countryside and coast and offering painting holidays where you can experience authentic Italian life in a medieval village.

All our retreats are for small groups only.  There will never be more than 15 people but more typically between 10-12.  We have 11 luxury, en-suite bedrooms so you can share with a friend or bring a partner – even if they’re not participating in the painting.

Below is our great programme of painting holidays over the coming months set in the inspiring Le Marche countryside – You’ll find fewer better places to enjoy and improve your art.
