We couldn't have chosen a better place for a family holiday than La Cuccagna. The setting, high in the Umbrian hills is absolutely beautiful. We constantly marvelled at the views best enjoyed from the terrace and the infinity pool. After returning from our visits to Assisi, Cortona, Perugia, Gubbio, Spoleto etc it was great to cool off in the pool, and relax with a glass of wine on the terrace. We chose the self-catering option and were well served by the local butcher shop (fabulous), grocery stores and supermarket. Don't miss Savatore's pizza night and our sons-in-law really enjoyed using the wood burning pizza oven and barbecue. Our hosts Sarah, Salvatore and Rosa were great, unobtrusive but very helpful. We hope to return.
