The venue for this program will be the stunning Locanda del Gallo, a country house bed and breakfast located in the peaceful Umbria hills between Gubbio and Perugia. Prominently situated on a ridge that stretches into the center of the valley commands fine views over its 28 hectares of gardens, terraced lawns, and woodland, this luxury, boutique hotel accommodation is immersed in nature. Enjoy green hills, gardens, silence, and extreme relaxation in the wellness center with a saltwater swimming pool, jacuzzi spa, and massage facilities.

The Locanda del Gallo has 10 rooms, each equally fresh and silent, and each unique 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. There is no television, and nothing to disturb the peace and tranquillity. The chef will spoil you with healthy and organic cuisine. Organic tomatoes, salad leaves, aromatic herbs, and vegetables come from the kitchen garden. Olive oil from the olive grove, yogurt, cakes, and homemade bread.

In the finest traditions of Mediterranean cuisine, everything is natural, and everything is genuine. 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 to 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, read a book, or revive yourself under the hands of the masseuse. For those who wish to venture on a day excursion, 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.
