We had a wonderful time at Il gallo rosso! We had been traveling from town to town for 2 weeks and arrived at this most tranquil, scenic and welcoming guest house. There is something magical about this place. The spacious rooms were so engaging with 2 sets of double doors wandering out into the garden on the one side and a rolling meadow on the other.
When we opened our sitting area windows we had a spectactular view of sheep grazing in the meadow with a castle in the distant horizon. The place and it's hosts create a sense of ease, beauty and comfort that you don't want to leave. Our accomodations were so pleasing, comfortable and extremely clean. The full kitchen and breakfast area was perfect for snacks and wine prior to a delicious meal prepared (and shared) by our hosts who are able to make us feel right at home while also giving us our privacy. We felt like we were truely at a special place. The time we spent at Il gallo rosso is something I will remember all my life and look forward to a return visit.
