Welcome to Locanda del Gallo, the country house bed and breakfast located in the peaceful Umbria hills between Gubbio and Perugia. The luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature. Enjoy the green hills, the gardens, the silence, extreme relaxation in the wellness centre with salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa and massage facilities. Let the chef spoil you with healthy and organic cuisine. Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona are all within easy reach of the Locanda del Gallo and even Siena, Florence and Rome are not too far.

The Locanda del Gallo has 10 rooms all with private bathroom, each equally fresh and silent, each different from one another. The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of the Locanda del Gallo. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.

Prominently situated on a ridge which stretches into the centre of the valley, The Locanda del Gallo commands fine views over its 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. Stroll at leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, or simply curl up with a book under the shade of the old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover. In one, an ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and close by the sybaritic delight of an outdoor Jacuzzi whirlpool spa.

Or descend a few steps and enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water, before heading for the peace of the salon overlooking the verdant landscape to sip a tisane, or read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of our masseuse.

Throughout this retreat, you will have the chance to practice one to two daily yoga sessions, explore nearby towns and the beautiful local culture, relax in the underground wellness spa (hamam), and enjoy the peaceful Umbria hills.

Wine Tasting in Castle and visit to Historic Assisi.
