Had the pleasure to spend a week at Locanda del Gallo in the Fall of 2007 and since I've been trying to get back. Although you do need a car, I attended a yoga retreat and was happy to be in such a calm, beautiful, and delightful place thanks to Paola and Irish and of course Jimmy that made each meal a special moment. Loved the pool, hikes, rooms, gardens, glass dining room, and especially the organic food. Looking forward to my return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Silence, Mother nature, Peace.Picture walls of stone aged by the centuries. Fresh and cosy rooms filled with ancient and exotic furniture. Gardens of manicured lawns and olive trees. The scent of lavender and rosemary filling the air. A swimming pool kissed by sunlight. Numerous paths running through woods, down to the stream in the valley below. Aperitifs sipped on a verandah watching the setting sun. Candle-lit dinners, and calm nights under a star filled sky. All around, just beyond our crown of hills stand Umbria’s many cities of art, abundant in their treasures, their elegant shops and traditions. So near, so far away……..
