This luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature.
The Locanda del Gallo commands beautiful views over its 28 hectares (69 acres) of gardens, terraced lawns and woodlands. Stroll at your leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, or simply curl up with a book under the shade of an old elm tree. The gardens hold many hidden gems and secret corners for you to discover. Walls of stone aged by the centuries. 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 the hills stand Umbria’s many cities of art, abundant in their treasures, their elegant shops and traditions. Enjoy the ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and Jacuzzi. Or descend a few steps and enter the small Moorish style spa, let your tensions slip away in the Turkish bath and then immerse yourself in a cloud of cool, refreshing, mint scented water. Sip a tisane (tea), read a book, or revive yourself with a massage. All rooms have large windows that open up to stunning views of the Umbrian hillside.
Simple, luxurious and elegant - the charming rooms at the Locanda have exquisite reclaimed doors and carved hardwood furniture from Bali and Indonesia, soft cotton bedding, plush comforters and an at-home feeling.
Three delicious Italian inspired meals a day - including vegetables, produce and herbs from the garden. Traditional Italian food served with a healthy, modern twist. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Feel free to order delicious wine from Locanda’s winery!
Yoga & Meditation: Each day begins with a meditation and yoga flow classes in a barn with large glass windows overlooking the Umbrian hills. You will deepen your understanding of yoga through asana, meditation, and philosophy. We teach alignment-based vinyasa classes with a focus on the breath and relaxing into the poses. Whether you’re a beginner or seasoned yogi, you’ll feel supported and challenged with different levels of modifications in each class.
Workshops: Laina will lead workshops designed to support you in living an inspired life. We will explore what Soul Consciousness means and how you can begin living from this place, rather than getting lost within the constructs of the limited mind. You will gain more clarity on your purpose, and release limiting beliefs and situations that are holding you back from living your life in a more inspired, purposeful and joyful way.
In between classes, you’ll have plenty of time for relaxing, going on excursions, and enjoying the beauty of Locanda Del Gallo.
