La Tenuta del Gallo
Ranked #2 of 20 Amelia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 September 2011

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.

It was by accident that we ended up there. Just because we went to a wedding in the area. Found the place on internet and had frankly no expectations.
We spent there 4 days and really had a break that seemed much longer.
We had almost every meal at the relais and never stopped enjoying the food of the young but talented chef.
As for outdoor we enjoyed sunbathing, swimming in the pool, and having an excellent prosecco before meals just looking the hils, the green, and the olive trees all around.
The silence made us sleep like babies and had really a good time with the friendly and super efficient couple managing and owning the relais.
Also invited friends for dinner one night and they were very pleased with the atmosphere, food and wine (the landlord loves his wine!!! so no bad surprises here :)).
We had a rented car but did not use it much since the place was just stunning. Mind you we live in switzerland so we are spoiled with nature and peace but we really loved this place. Not to be missed!

PS I am fun of tuscany but this location was really much better! As a relais the crowd was not posh, mostly foreigners, but discrete and quiete...frankly ideal.
What to say we will certainly go back and soon!!!

Great location, great hotel, great time! If you want the ultimate quiet and relaxing break away from it all, this is the right place for you. This is a family owned and run hotel, with only ten rooms, and comes with that personal service that you would expect of such a small business. Friendly and accomodating would be the two words I would use to describe Marco et al who make you feel very welcome. The in-house restuarant, was very quiet, served great food, and at a reasonable price, considering the quality... note although being a rural hotel the food is more sophisticated city resturant than a rustic Italian Trattoria - although many of the ingredients are either grown on-site or locally. Our room was tastfully decorated, and had a lovely uninterupted view of the surrounding hilly Umbrian countryside. We will definately, be returning for a romantic mini break in the future... if you are considering a quiet Italian get away to relax this should definiately be on your short-list!

Absolute countryside, no noise at all, ideal to take a holiday off the noisy city.
Family driven like an Agriturismo, with the treat of a 4* hotel!
The food is great and the staff is extremely kind and available.
It is about 1hr drive from the main places to see in Umbria.

definitely to be reccomended.

Tenuta del Gallo is a brand new place, family managed. It is at about 10 minutes by car from Amelia and is at the outskirts of a little, unsignifcant village - Macchie di Amelia. It is luxuriously furbished and has an amazing swimming pool with an incredible view of the surrounding hills. Service is very good. There is a restaurant that we didn't try. It is close to Rome, about 1h20 mn. Perfect if you want to relax in an isolated, beatiful place. Not ideal if you want to see Umbria: Amelia is nice and Narni (at about 25mns by car) even better but they do not represent the best the region has to offer (such as Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, Spoleto, Todi etc...).
