Lovely and Intimate B&B

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gabella Antica B&B was our favorite accommodation for the 2 weeks we were in Umbria and Tuscana. Benedetta, Giovanna and Silvano could not have been more welcoming and kind to us during our five night stay in Castellano del Lago. We had a two bedroom, two bath apartment to ourselves, which was very private. We had a small kitchen with everything we needed to make two dinners. Breakfast was provided by Giovanna every morning with a wonderful selection of breads, cheeses, meats, and fruit. Coffee, tea, milk and butter was always available to have any time of day. The apartment was cleaned every day while we were away on day trips (Assisi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona). Several restaurants are near and excellent for dinner within the wall, as well as many shops for wonderful local wine and pastas.

We have happy memories and are grateful for the experiences we had in Castellano del Lago -due mostly to the generosity of Giovanna, Benedetta and Silvano. They run a top notch business!

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

We deiced to visit Italy for our honeymoon. Majority of the time was at Antica Gabella B&B, property listed here.

This really was the best part of our holiday! Great communication with us prior the trip was a good start, to make sure we feel relaxed once there. Venue it's easy to find or, like us, if travelling by train, owners can pick you up.

From the first minute we felt so welcome at this family run B&B.

The venue is so lovely! You can choose, when booking, a room (or actually two) upstairs, with shared entrance or, like us, downstairs which actually is a separate apartment, with a mall kitchen too and street entrance.

We where so delighted with fantastic choice of breakfast every day. It really felt like being at home...Thank you!

Additionally, owners kept checking if we would need any advise where to go, see, do & dine.

This B&B is perfectly located, amongst the old town/castle grounds. Plenty of fantastic places to eat nearby, offering local produce.

Antica Gabella is a fantastic place to stay. It's charm and perfect customer service from all teh family who run the business makes us want to come back there again.

Strongly recommended!

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This B & B...actually a two bedroom, bath and a half apartment...was the highlight of our trip to Italy. It was beautiful, well equipped, comfortable, conveniently situated in a charming village on the border of Umbria and Tuscany. The owners brought a delicious breakfast everyday and gave us touring advice as well as local restaurant recommendations. We definitely would recommend this charming place!
