We have stayed here approx 1/2 year ago. I was my worst experience ever in a b&b. I was never planning to write about it, however i can not believe all positive reactions on this website.
Upon arrival, the first thing which was said to us was to move our car (after driving hours with a baby). A welcome drink was not offered and the breakfast was awfully poor and was measured till the crumb. The photo's on the website are very nice, and do reflect the place, however you need to realise that the first restaurant is 25 minutes by car.
The room is way too dark and we can not find ourselves in the "perfect hostess" we find described here.
We left early, which than again they took sympatically.
- 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. We love the Umbrian way of life and all it has to offer and it gives us great pleasure to help our guests enjoy the very best stay in our stunning surroundings. ... more less
