I was on holiday in Italy and wanted to explore Umbria for the first time. I chose Tenuta del Gallo due to its centralized location in Umbria. I look forward to returning due to its beauty, warmth and amazing food. The owners, Marco and Silvia, were extremely gracious and always helpful when it came to suggestions of where to visit or where to eat outside the property. It is obvious that they have poured their soul into this wonderful jewel in the countryside.
The food alone would draw me back to this casa. The chef produced the most fabulous pastry creations at breakfast (along with the usual fruits, yoghurts, etc) that there was really no room for the cooked breakfast which they also offered. Dinner was a similar treat with many complimentary offerings in additions to what we ordered. If this was a restaurant in the US, Zagat woule be singing its praises.
The property itself is stunningly beautiful. Each room is decorated individually with great attention to detail. However, it is the setting which makes this property so magical. To wake up in the absolute quiet of rolling Umbrian hills and realize that you could either venture out for the day or remain poolside here and be totally content was wonderful.
This is a perfect place for anyone wishing a feast for all senses.
