“In two words… “a tonic””
Reviewed April 18, 2007

We visited Italy many times but never saw the “true” Italy until we came to “Il Gallo Rosso”. After each holiday we always felt like we needed another holiday. But a stay here and you know you were on a real dream. To sum “Il Gallo Rosso” up in two words… “a tonic”. Thanks again. And hopefully ye will win the world cup, even tough ye have a world cup here. Cheers guys and slàinte.

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.

We spent a wonderful week at Il Gallo Rosso, meeting kind and hospitable people and sharing some good times with the locals. Ian is the ideal host and makes this home from home. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and functional. I would recommend it highly for a great stay in the most stunning part of Italy!

We stayed at this charming farmhouse in August 2003. Our host Ian was delightful & his kind hospitality was very well received (he cooks a mean Ragu!). A very special effort was made to make us feel comfortable & welcome & we sure got to experience life as a local - the most amusing was following a few large glasses of vino, dancing around the square at midnight with the locals of Montegiove at their annual festival - believe they are still recovering!! If you are visiting Umbria - Il Gallo Rosso is a must. See you next year A&K London

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Antica Fattoria di Pietra (Stone House Retreat), a gay friendly old country house with pool. Positioned perfectly for the must-see destinations of Rome and Florence and the major sites of Tuscany and Umbria, we are situated within 10km of major motorways and train stations, however still maintaining the seclusion and tranquility of a totally rural environment. Within less than a 70 km radius, we have such impressive cities as Siena, Perugia, Assisi, Arezzo, Orvieto, Cetona, Montepulciano, Todi, and Spoleto, just to name a few. Also within this area are important archaeological sites from the pre-roman (Etruscan) period, as well as the natural beauty of Monte Amiata in Tuscany, lake Bolsena and lake Trasimeno. For example you may wish to visit places such as Sorano, Sovana, Pitigliano to marvel at this history and beauty with your own eyes. For our guests we have three independent suites all on ground level and each contains a double bedroom of generous proportion, private bathroom, kitchenette, dining and sitting areas with double sofa beds in two of these apartments. Outside, each suite enjoys private access via its own alfresco dining area. You may prefer to stay in the "Lavanda" (Lavender) suite, or in the "Girasole" (Sunflower) suite, or in the "Papavero" (Poppy) studio tastefully decorated in gentle tones of the corresponding flowers that have become synonymous with this area through spring and summer. ... more   less
