Dear Sal & Sarah, Sorry for the late message of thanks. We cannot thank you enough for our short break at La Cuccagna. Dear future guest, if you are looking for somewhere peaceful, relaxing and secluded, in the hills of Umbria (or anywhere for that matter), you've landed on the right hotel. The location and view is just breathtaking. One... More

We have been home for two months but go back often in memories to our favorite part of a ten-day trip to Italy with two other couples. Beautiful Umbria at the gorgeous retreat La Cuccagna. Last October we were met by a litter of ten “wooly” puppies, Sarah with her lovely English accent, and her quick to smile hospitable husband... More

This was our second stay at this little piece of heaven. Perfectly situated with beautiful views, it is ideal for relaxing and also visiting the charming towns of Umbria. Sarah and Sal are a wealth of information and they have never steered us wrong. A visit to DeFillippo vineyard was an especial treat this time. And the dinner Sal prepared... More

We stayed here for the first time in July. It is the perfect spot to unwind and relax. The views from the rooms and pool are spectacular. Exploring the nearby towns was a great way of seeing the 'real' Umbria as was staying with Sarah and Sal, who are friendly and thoughtful hosts wanting their guests to feel totally relaxed.... More

I was shocked when I looked at my reviews, and I'd not reviewed La Cuccagna! I've recommended it so many times since we went in Sept 2012! Sal was away for most of our stay, but Sarah is a great host! The welcome is warm and heartfelt. The guest house is really nicely laid out to allow guests to be... More

It's hard to know where to start when describing this amazing B&B. My wife and I, along with two other couples, stayed in the main guest house in October 2014. Our collective jaws dropped when we drove up to the property and remained agape for our entire stay. La Cuccagna is a beautifully designed, sustainably built B&B situated high in... More

Sal and Sarah were born to be your host and hostess. They understand the meaning of hospitality. They have built the ideal place to get the true feeling of the Italian country side. It is as enjoyable to stay put as it is to travel to all the lovely towns/sights nearby. If you chose to take day trips they can... More

In addition to Rome, Florence and Venice, we spent 4 nights at La Cuccagna. So long as you understand that you will be in the country, this place is fabulous. A beautiful hill/mountaintop setting with fabulous views. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Sal and Sarah work tirelessly to fill your every need. They are extremely knowledgeable about the... More

This property is beautiful with a gorgeous view, infinity pool, lovely deck. The location is good for visiting many towns such as Perugia, Assisi and Gubbio and the lovely hill town Spello. Sarah and Salvatore are excellent, attentive hosts. We stayed for 3 nights at the new unit called Cisterna. I highly recommend this B&B.

We stayed in early September and would certainly recommend La Cuccagna. Here are some of our thoughts. Location - in the hills of Umbria, overlooking truly breathtaking scenery (the views from the infinity pool (and our terrace) were so beautiful in different ways depending on the time of day). You can see for miles and miles on a clear day,... More
