Join us for a unique and rich experience in magical Umbria. We will be staying an ancient and serene Country home that has been beautifully restored. 

Picture walls of stone aged by the centuries. Fresh and cozy 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. 

Locanda del Gallo is a 17th Century country estate set off the beaten track on a hilltop with stunning views in every direction. Warm hospitality, excellent food, tranquility and charm ‚Äď this is rustic Italy at its best. It‚Äôs one of those truly special places that will remain in¬†your heart.



..from daily life and stroll at leisure through the olive grove, inhaling the scents and taking in the view. Or simply curl up with a book under the shade of the old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover with your journal, your friend or to just sit and be.


..with what matters through our natural connection with nature as we exist in this ancient and beautiful space. Place your feet on the earth under the full moon and feel the return to what matters.

Enjoy the green hills, the gardens, silence and relaxation in the wellness centre in the salt water pool, jacuzzi spa and even get a massage.

Rejoice.. this gift you have given yourself and enjoy every everything available to you here including the gorgeous spa, letting your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water. 



..your commitment to yourself, your self-care practice, your happiness and purpose. Head home feeling lighter, excited and full of love for yourself and life knowing you have new friends and that you can always drop back into La Bella Vita in your mind. 


 Organic tomatoes, salad leaves and vegetables from the kitchen garden. Olive oil from the olive grove, aromatic herbs from the garden, yogurt, cakes and home-made breads. In the finest traditions of Mediterranean cuisine everything is natural, everything is genuine.
