(URL HIDDEN) SAN GALLO is a truly beautiful and comfortable farm cottage within the outstanding historic property called BERGAMO HOUSE. It is nestled amongst vineyard, olive- and chestnut grove, century-old trees and garden. Noted as a key property of the first substantial agricultural settlement of Italians in Australia, BERGAMO HOUSE dates from the mid-19th century. The surrounding landscape is hilly with a lovely mix of vineyards, pastures and bushland, totally tranquil and reminiscent architecturally and scenically of the ancient farmlands of northern Italy.
An extensive network of undisturbed country lanes, many of them sealed, and old bush tracks invite to hike and bike, whether to explore the northern fringes of the Wombat Sate Forest or the many remnants of the districts rich history. All surrounding country towns like Daylesford, Castlemaine, Maldon, Clunes, Talbot and many more are of particular interest and easily accessible, each being only an easy 15 to 30 minutes drive away.
