Thank you so much for welcoming us into your warm, friendly home in this piece of Paradise. Each day has been glorious and exiting, while at the same time, calm, peaceful and relaxing. The graciousness of everyone has made Il Gallo Rosso the highlight of the many journeys we have taken. Until the next time… hugs and tanks.
Doug & Paul - (USA)
Il Gallo Rosso is a great place to have a quiet retreat or for a home base to explore Umbria. You make everyone feel at home. Thanks to you all for making our stay. The apartments are very special and unique in theirs own way. We very much enjoyed our stay. We love all your pets. They make the place extra special. See you again.
Maribeth & Kelly - (USA)
Thanks to all for a most wonderful retreat. Our Papavero paradise was perfect. I loved it from the website and loved it even more “live”! Thanks for all the many little thinks you do to make our stay wonderful. From the basket and wine on arrival to the unexpected sewing services of your master needlepointer Kristen! We will definitely recommend it highly and we are hoping to return soon.
Christian & Robert - (D)
Vor einem Jahr waren wir das erste mal hier – wir mussten diesen Sommer nicht lange überlegen wo wir uns vom Bürostress erholen wollen. Il Gallo Rosso und die Gastgeber – einfach immer wieder ein Muss! Bis zum nächsten Mal!
Pascal & Henri - (F)
Il Gallo Rosso c’est l’endroit idéal pour le repos, la détente dans un magnifique cadre mais aussi idéal pour rayonner dans ces si belles régions de l’Italie que sont la Toscane et l’Ombrie. L’accueil de nos hôtes a été très agréable aussi bien dans l’attention portée au moindre détail que dans la discrétion. La gite (Girasole) très confortable avec ce must qu’est la piscine ! Un grand merci a nos hôtes pur ces moments délicieux.
Paul & Davide - (SA)
Our second visit to Il Gallo Rosso after four years ! A new apartment a few step away from the sparkling pool was everything and more that we had longed for. Even a full week isn’t long enough to take in the beauty and serenity of this most wonderful of Italian destinations. Thank you to the usual team for their kindness and hospitality, especially to Ian for the little touches that make a stay here so special. We leave refreshed and relaxed, nicely tanned (all over!) with a mixture of happiness and sadness. If only it could last forever! Naturally we will be back, this time we won’t wait so long.
Gille & François - (F)
Nous avons trouvé Il Gallo Rosso sur le net en craquant pour ‘Papavero’ et la piscine illuminée en présence de la lune. Après une année de dur labour - profession + études universitaires – nous sommes arrivés dans ce coin de Paradis comme nous l’avions rêvé. La réalité du lieu a dépassé notre rêve. Réveil naturel dans le silence. Même le coq élégant est discret au lever du soleil ! Faire l’amour au cour de ce petit bijou de Papavero, encore et encore. Se baigner avant le petite déjeuner. Puis perdus au milieu de nulle part, avec un panorama à perte de vue nous avons dégusté lectures, la gentillesse e la prévenance de nos hôtes et bien sur l’Italie à portée de main comme une journée à Rome en train. A l’image du Coq, emblème de la France, vous pouvez être fier du paradis de beauté et de tranquillité que vous avez crée et dont on s’imprègne !
Jean-Philippe & Daniel - (F)
Endroit magnifique ! Hôtes attentionnés et très sympathiques ! Animaux affectueux ! Figues délicieuses ! Cigales et grilles ! Quoi de plus ? Tout est bien ! Merci a tous vous pour vos attentions et vos gentilles.
Fabrice & Nicolas - (F)
Merci a vous tous pour votre accueille tantes les délicates attentions dont nous avons pu bénéficier des notre arrivée. Séjour très agréable et au calme. On sent que vous avez tout pensé pour le confort de vos hôtes!
Detlef & Frank - (D)
Eine Woche Erholung pur in eurem Paradies! Es war traumhaft schön. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und danken euch allen für die Gastfreundschaft und die herzliche Aufnahme.
Leo & Ruudt - (NL)
We came here still being stressed and leave very relaxed. The service was impeccable and we felt very much at home. And we shared with Ian the fun of decorating our dinner table and laughed a lot with the two Aussies!
Ruby & Annika (D)
Danke für zwei wunderschöne Wochen in eurem Italienische Paradies! Alles war bis ins letzte Detail perfekt. Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt : ein Empfang wie bei Freunden, liebevoll eingerichtete Appartements, Ian’s selbstgebackener Kuchen, Karl’s Kochkünste, Gastgeber, die einem jeden Wunsch von den Augen ablesen, frisches Gemüse aus eigenem Anbau, viele tierische Freunde und nicht zuletzt der fantastische Garden mit Pool und Liegen - wirklich ein Ort zum "Seele – baumeln – lassen“!
Tom & Tanja (USA)
What you have built here is a place of natural beauty and refined taste. Meanwhile your generous hospitality and good humor made it a pleasure to spend time with you. We so enjoyed our time here that where it came to choosing between visiting the treasures of Florence and further soaking up the ambience of Il Gallo Rosso, we made the obvious choice at the latter. Your place is as good for the soul as any Duomo!.
Davide & Ludovic (I-F)
We both felt very much welcomed here and everything has been smooth and lovely. Nice place with nice people in a classy yet rustic environment. Be sure we’ll spread the word and we’d definitely like to come back. Thank you all for this truly relaxing stay.
Johannes & Peter (D)
Ein wunderschönes Stück Erde im Herzen von Italien, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und konnten so richtig abschalten. Die Sauberkeit der Räume haben wir sehr genossen und die exzellent Gastfreundschaft ist nicht zu überbieten. Wir müssen dringend in München werben, damit noch "Viele" von diese Oase profitieren.
Normand & Serge (CA)
Après trois semaine de périple en Italie, nous aboutissons dans ce oasis de tranquillité avec un accueil des plus chaleureux.
Thanks to all of you for your kindness, generosity, advices and attention to details and thank god there was not a church or a duomo near by…You have created a paradise and I wish that you will soon be all able to enjoy it on a permanent basis. Salutations.
Dale & Merrie
Thank you so much. Karl, Ian, Paolo and of course Kristen for a wonderful place, a sweet atmosphere. Each of you has created a spirit of generosity: zucchini, eggs and so placed outside of the patio, knowledgeable advise on travel and great stories. A wonderful stay that we will savour in our memories of Il Gallo Rosso. Your attention to every detail is so appreciated. All the best.
Susan & Marilyn - (USA)
Sitting beside a pristine swimming pool, under the shade of an umbrella with a warm breeze blowing my hair, the birds sing and the rooster crows and I enjoy the sight of the rolling hills of Umbria. Il Gallo Rosso is the result of the vision and loving labor of hour hosts. For me it is also a dream come true, one in which I’ve worked to afford, took a lot of planning, and then was astounded that this experience was much more precious and beautiful than expected. At Il Gallo Rosso there is a connection to the bounty of the earth though the vegetable garden, the flowers (poppies!), the cyprus trees, the wildlife, the chickens (fresh eggs!), olive trees (unbelievable olive oil!), lavender, herbs growing, and more. None of this would be possible or so exquisite without Ian’s daily attention to every detail. We have been treated with loving kindness. Meeting Ian, Karl, Peter, Johannes, Jack Daniels, Max, Sam, Tom has been awesome. Thank you for everything. Everything was perfect.
Fredo & Hector - (USA)
Is has been a truly exceptional stay that we have had at Il Gallo Rosso. Ian, your extremely warm hospitality and fantastic attention to detail is once again, truly exceptional. You have developed and created quite a special environment and we feel very lucky to have experienced it. Auguri!
John & Glenn - (USA)
Thank you Ian, Karl and Kristen for making our stay at Il Gallo Rosso so special. It was a welcome respite from the hordes of tourists. Thank you also for suggesting we visit Sorano and Sovana as they were our favourite towns in Italy.
Adam - (AUS)
What can I say… Ian, you have blown me away with this place! Il Gallo Rosso is an amazing place and definitely one of the jewels of the Umbrian countryside. You have transformed this once humble farmhouse into a spectacular retreat destination. I am very impressed and was so glad I came and experienced the experience. I cannot thank you enough. Big thanks to Karl for his friendship and hot springs tour and also big thanks to Kristen for her instant friendship and morning chats. Loads of luv.
Sandrine & Beatrice - (F)
Now we know where the name Gallorosso comes from, where eating the best pizzas in Umbria and, last but not least, where ‘dolce vita’ is.
Thank you so much Ian, Karl and Kristen for this wonderful week. At least I truly recommend you to taste limoncello…. But mind your step!
Henk & Martien - (NL)
Thank you very much Ian and Kristen for a great week at Il Gallorosso! We feel we really experienced Umbria in full, great scenery, marvellous food and wine, and above all the relaxing beauty of Il Gallorosso. Max, Jack and the cats were nice company. We had a perfect time here, thanks again for everything.
Eric & Emmanuel - (F)
Merci pour cet accueil chaleureux et familial. Vous avez veillé en permanence à notre bien-être. La semaine a été agréable et reposante, malgré le temps qui ne nous a permis de profiter pleinement de la piscine. Cet endroit est magnifique et nous a permis de nous sentir pleinement a l’aise. Nous rentrons en France reposés et ressourcés.
Christian & Robert - (D)
Il Gallo Rosso ist ein liebevoll gepflegtes Stück Erde mit lieben "multikulti“ Hausherren. Man kann sich hier einfach nur Wohlfühlen. Es gibt nur wenige Orte wie diesen; wir sind froh diese "kleine Farm“ gefunden zu haben. Wir kommen wieder. Danke für den netten Abend in Montegabbione.
