Locanda del Gallo

Peaceful, panoramic, secluded and utterly wonderful.
The Locanda del Gallo is one of those beautiful and peaceful old houses set in gorgeous countryside that Italy seems to specialise in. Yet it is at the same time typical and unique, with more history and wooden beams than you can shake a stick at.
Locanda del Gallo originated in the 12th century has certainly enjoyed an interesting past. Being strategically located between Gubbio and Perugia meant that these two cities have long fought tooth and nail over the centuries for the area in which it is located. Dominating a magnificent hilly landscape, it must have been an ideal place to look out over the enemy.
Nowadays, it is simply an ideal place to relax and unwind. It fits in perfectly within such beautiful natural surroundings, with the regional elements of old stone and the liberal use of wood used throughout, but so is a certain oriental style, whilst the recent restoration has taken nothing away from the Locanda del Gallo. On the contrary, the character and charm are greater than ever. As for things to do and places to see, it may be far from the madding crowd but there’s plenty to explore. Riding, trekking or visiting some absolutely wonderful towns, not least of which Assisi, Perugia and Gubbio, is easy to do.
Alternatively, you may find it congenial just to sit by the lovely swimming pool, which is constructed in such a way that does full justice to the Locanda and surrounding views.
