Locanda del Gallo (Historical Residences) Gubbio
Take a dip into greenest Umbria
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- The peace and tranquility of rural Umbria
- The meeting of East and West... in the kitchen
- The pool with view of the woods of Gubbio
Are there times when all you want to do is get away from it all, leave the routine of everyday life behind you and escape to the country?
There can be no better place to do just that than Umbria's Locanda del Gallo, an historic house in the lush green countryside immediately beyond the walls of Gubbio.
Culture of hospitality
Oriental furnishings and food are perhaps the last things you would expect to find in an ancient period residence, deep in the heart of rural Umbria. At Gubbio's Locanda del Gallo, you'll find both!
Here, amidst the woods and olive trees, the old Umbrian traditions merge effortlessly with those of cultures as diverse as they are distant.
Bedrooms containing all the features of Umbria's traditional country homes, are decorated with the furniture and artworks collected by the owners, Paola and Irish, during their Far Eastern travels.
A television in each and every room? No, thank you! Locanda del Gallo is blissfully TV free!
Locanda del Gallo's bedrooms are not the only place in the country house where East meets West so successfully: a similar fusion takes place in the kitchen too!
This is where Chef Jimmy adds his delicious oriental touches to traditional local dishes, exquisitely presented, and served to guests in the Locanda's elegant dining room.
Locanda del Gallo is set in 28 hectares of gloriously green gardens, complete with Jacuzzi, panoramic chlorine-free pool and even a small Moorish style spa which is equipped with a sauna, massage corner and tea room.
Body and soul
If you like your holidays to be active, you can book an hour or two at the nearby tennis courts, or play a few rounds at one of the area's highly acclaimed Golf Clubs.
Umbria is famous for its spirituality, making it the perfect place in which to organize a yoga retreat (in fact there's a 115sqm dojo - just 100 meters away from the Country House!).
