A really wonderful spot to appreciate Umbria and all it has to offer. Sarah and Salvatore were perfect hosts ensuring our stay was as relaxed and effortless as possible. Both the house and garden have been beautifully restored, creating a real idyll in the heart of the Umbrian countryside.
An ideal location for exploring the local culture, with top tips provided by our hosts - do ask, they really know the area and can recommend superb restaurants and places to visit that you may not find on the tourist trail.
Sal is also an excellent chef - his home made pizzas and pasta making lessons come highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Cuccagna offers boutique style B&B and self-catering accommodation, finished with the highest quality luxury linens, plush towels, fluffy bathrobes and organic artisan toiletries. Our rooms are rustic and simple in harmony with the natural surroundings. Furnishings are mostly handmade locally in the original style of an Umbrian farmhouse and we have used local artists, ceramics and textiles in the finishing touches. Our hilltop position offers peace and tranquillity with stunning, unspoilt views over the hills and valleys. Our horizon pool has an infinity edge that drops off into the rolling Umbrian countryside with views that stretch into neighbouring Tuscany. We are an English / Italian couple who decided to find a little piece of paradise in Umbria and open our home to offer guests a unique and authentic experience. Our guests receive a warm welcome and we pride ourselves in ensuring that they receive the highest level of personal hospitality and enjoy the most relaxing stay possible.
