This romantic inn is in the renovated stables of an aristocratic palazzo in a small medieval town in Le Marche, an increasingly popular region on the Adriatic side of the Italian peninsula. Cream-colored stone walls in open, arched public rooms create an airy atmosphere everywhere, from the delightful winter garden flooded with natural light (where breakfast is served), to the 14 rooms, where ivory draperies, piles of pillows, natural oak floors, and wood-beamed ceilings make bedrooms cozy. The Tassi family have tastefully furnished the hotel with family antiques, canopied beds, local crafts, and contemporary art depicting the town. Although staffing is minimal, Maria Enrica Tassi is present and very helpful during the day, and there is 24-hour room service from the bar. A small spa is in the works.

When to go: In spring and fall, the Marches region is lovely for touring, while in early July and in early August, Ascoli Piceno celebrates the Quintana, a spectacular medieval pageant with a jousting tournament that dates back to 1377.
Which room to book: Room No. 108 is the best double and has a small terrace; otherwise, choose Suite 100 Torri and Suite Filanda, each with two bedrooms, two baths, and two terraces.
