A restful, almost spiritual calm emanates from this wonderful home. In a medieval hamlet, the locanda has all the beams and antique tiles you could wish for. Light, airy rooms with pale limewashed walls are a perfect foil for the exquisite reclaimed doors and carved hardwood furniture from Bali and Indonesia; your charming hosts have picked up some fabulous pieces from far-off places and have given the house a colonial feel. Each bedroom is different, one almond with Italian country furniture, another white, with wicker and Provençal prints; some have carved four-poster beds. Bathrooms are gorgeous, with deep baths and walk-in, glass-doored showers. A stunning veranda wraps itself around the house: doze off in a wicker armchair, sip a drink at dusk as the sun melts into the valley. The pool is spectacular, like a mirage clinging to the side of the hill; and there's a huge lime tree. Paola and Erich are interesting, cultural and warm.

  • The palazzo was built in 1672, the year Pope Clement X raised Gubbio from a village to a marquisate. After becoming run down after years of disuse, the palazzo was restored in 1995 and reflects the original architecture of the building.
  • Umbria is a paradise for nature lovers. We will be delighted to point out the many quiet paths and by-ways waiting to be explored in the valley surrounding the Locanda del Gallo. For those wishing to explore further we have a selection of mountain bikes.
  • A Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in the outdoor heated Jacuzzi spa. Our qualified masseuse offers a choice of massages from relaxing to invigorating. An appointment can be booked for you.
  • We can book tennis courts 10 minutes away by car and a round on a championship golf course 30 minutes away.
  • A pleasant ten minute walk takes you to Renza’s hand weaving workshop. Here you can learn the art of hand looming and dyeing fabric with vegetable dyes. Renza organises courses from a half day to a full week.
  • Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi, Todi, Orvieto, Spoleto. All Umbria’s medievial towns are filled with history and treasures. Ancient streets and alleyways are flanked with palaces and elegant houses, delightful shops and boutiques.

"Stunning location. A beautiful and blissfully peaceful valley. The hosts were attentive, but never overbearing. The pool was spotless. We didn't get to sample the spa treatments. Meals on site were simple, but imaginatively prepared. A perfect place to relax and recharge."

"I came to Locanda Del Gallo to host a business retreat. Our experience at LDG was excellent. The staff made sure we were taken care of and they handled all of our requirements easily. The facilities were gorgeous and well taken care of. The food was delicious and suited our group's needs as we had many unique dietary requirements. Paola helped us coordinate an excursion and made the details very simple. I highly recomment Locanda and will definitely be returning! It is a wonderful place to visit for fun or to lead a group retreat. "

"I've been to the Locanda many times since 2001 - a few times with a yoga retreat & then a several times on my own or with a friend - & each visit was spectacular. I recently returned with my husband and 2 children; though my vacation needs are very different with a family, it more than lived up to my incredible memories of the place! Owners Paola & Irish have created a haven of peace and respite - whether you are looking to visit the region with its beautiful surrounding towns, or to just kick back by the salt water infinity pool & revel in Chef Jimmy's cuisine -the Locanda is extraordinary!!!"

"We have been here several times over the last 10 years and are never disapointed. Set in beautifull suroundings it is the perfect place to relax and gain the calm one would like to have all year. The rooms are comfortable, bathrooms a delight and Jimmys food is wonderfull. Poala's and Erich's hard work foresight and style have created a real haven. We will go back."
