Luxury Boutique & Country House with 10 Rooms

Country house bed and breakfast located in the peaceful Umbria hills

Built at the beginning of the 12th. century, in a strategic site on the border between Gubbio and Perugia, the castle at S. Cristina has, over the centuries been contended for many times by the two cities.


During their fighting for supremacy over the Eugubins the Perugians ordered the first destruction of the castle in 1397.


It was later reclaimed by the Eugubines and by 1600 the village of S. Cristina too was won for Gubbio, despite the local landowners, Earl “Della Penna” (earl of the feather) being a Perugian family. In 1650 on the marriage in Rome of Francesca Della Penna to Cosimo del Grillo, the village of S.Cristina passed in dowry to the noble Florentine family the del Grillo’s.


Records show the existence of the building which now houses the Locanda when in 1662 Cosimo del Grillo petitioned pope Clemente X to have his wife’s village raised to a Marquisate.


Virginia commissioned the building of the new church and sacristy, thus completing in 1823 the village as seen to this day. Virginia, the last descendant of the del Grillo’s gifted her inheritance in 1831 to her cousin the Marquise Guiliano Capranica, who conjoined the surnames.


In 1995 The present owners took over the property, formerly belonging to the Marquis Capranica del Grillo. They commenced on a project of dedicated restoration of the long neglected mansion and village re-creating its original splendour, and resulting in the Locanda we see today.


Welcome to Locanda del Gallo, our country house bed and breakfast located in the peaceful Umbria hills between Gubbio and Perugia.


Our luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature. Enjoy our green hills, our gardens, our silence, extreme relaxation in our wellness centre with salt water swimming pool, jacuzzi spa and massage facilities. Let our chef spoil you with healthy and organic cuisine. Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi and Cortona are all within easy reach of the Locanda del Gallo and even Siena, Florence and Rome are not too far.


The Locanda del Gallo has 10 rooms all with private bathroom, each equally fresh and silent, each different from one another. The furnishings adorning every room were all hand-picked and brought back one by one from many distant journeys made by Paola and Irish, the owners of the Locanda del Gallo. There is no television, nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity.


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.


Prominently situated on a ridge which stretches into the centre of the valley, The Locanda del Gallo commands fine views over its 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns and woodland. Stroll at leisure through the olive grove, inhale the scent of roses and herbs, 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. In one, an ecological chlorine-free swimming pool, encircled by comfortable sun loungers and close by the sybaritic delight of an outdoor Jacuzzi whirlpool spa.


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, before heading for the peace of the salon overlooking the verdant landscape to sip a tisane, or read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of our masseuse.
