The Details...

Perched on a hilltop in the picturesque Umbrian countryside in central Italy, La Cuccagna looks out over miles and miles of spectacular green landscapes. Hills, forests and valleys stretch out into the distance below. Comprised of three wonderful residences, La Cuccagna is a tranquil haven for people looking to escape to the peace and serenity of nature.

First up you have the charming old farmhouse. The entire ground floor of this splendid traditional building has been converted into a delightful B&B with three rooms and one Deluxe Suite. Each is supremely comfortable with double or twin layouts available and every room comes with its own en suite bathroom. Luxury linens, super soft towels, cosy bathrobes and organic artisan toiletries are provided on arrival. The Deluxe Suite also has its own small kitchenette as well as a private seating area and pretty patio. Guests who stay at the Farmhouse also get to enjoy a delicious continental breakfast made up of homemade and locally sourced organic food, the perfect start to your day.

Next is La Cisterna is a two storey B&B apartment, independent from the main building. Where the Farmhouse offers traditional rooms, in a classic Italian style, La Cisterna is more citing edge and contemporary. With more space, a small kitchenette, a luxurious feature bathroom and its own patio space, this suite is the perfect bolthole for a couple or small family. There’s one comfy bedroom, with a double bed, and a nice sofa bed in the living area.

The third option is La Stalleta, otherwise known as ‘The Old Cowshed’. This quaint self-catering lodge is a pretty holiday cottage with a homely open plan kitchen and living area, complete with a cute dining space perfect for a romantic meal for two. There’s a separate bedroom, with a comfortable double bed, and it has its own bathroom. There’s also a delightful terrace out front with a pergola and a BBQ, meaning you can cook up delicious food and dine out in the sunshine.

La Cuccagna estate has some fabulous facilities. Wake up and go for a dip in the infinity pool whilst gazing across the valley below. Or just enjoy your coffee poolside in the fresh country air. There is a new dining room, La Spesetta, where meals are served, and there is also a traditional stone pizza oven where the owner Salvatore cooks up sumptuous pizzas and fresh bread for guests on occasion. The owners also offer pasta making courses, Italian language lessons, truffle hunting and olive picking to help you experience the real Italy.

Guests are also encouraged to explore the enchanting grounds. La Cuccagna is set in more than 11 acres of stunning Italian countryside and there are a whole host of seasonal delights on offer including crisp wild asparagus, tasty fennel and tremendous truffles. Go for a stroll among the old olive trees, vines and fruit trees and smell the fresh herbs out growing in the sunshine. Venture around the grounds or find a nice place to settle down with a book and glass of wine.

The surrounding area also has plenty to offer to enhance the authentic Italian experience, including wonderful local village restaurants within easy distance. The nearby village also has a nice general store, a butcher and a handful of grocers allowing you to stock up on bits and pieces. There are also some amazing towns and villages in the area including Gubbio, Spello, Assisi and Perugia.
