From the moment we arrived as a party of 6, Salvatore and Sarah were warm and welcoming. Since it was our first journey to Italy, it was very nice to have proprietors that spoke English. They were gracious and accommodating, helping us to navigate the beautiful country side. The rooms were lovely, clean and of good size. Beds were so comfortable we awoke each morning for a fresh start to climb the steep hills of the little villages of Umbria and Tuscany. Pizza night is a treat not to miss, stay in one night, Salvatore makes his pizza in an outside brick oven. I could go on an on about this wonderful place but before I go, I would also like to make mention that being a Bed and Breakfast owner as well, I am probably a bit more cynical than most, La Cuccagna passed with flying colors!!! An Excellent choice for a true Umbria experience! Many thanks Sarah and Salvatore (and a special hug for their darling daughter, Rosa)

We first visited, when Sal and Sarah started their first year, and both my wife and myself have never forgotten it.We had 3 free days after visiting Florence, and asked if they could put us up for 2 nights it was almost as if we had only left yesterday, the welcome was overwhelming, and then to see all the extra work they have put in, was amazing. The first visit, we stayed in the "Cowshed" which they are now just finishing of refurbishing, however the ensuite rooms are all you ask for, and a terrace with views out of this world. One full day is not the way to enjoy the region, as there are so many attractions but we did fit in one mountain and Gubbio. Next year we will try and make it longer, many thanks Sal, Sarah and of course Rosa

Room Tip: Nearest the terrace

My wife and I went to Italy for 2 weeks for our delayed honeymoon(Sept 2011). We spent almost a week at La Cuccagna and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had on vacation. We were looking for that idyllic, stereotypical, Italian country scene. We got it and thensome. Sarah & Salvatore really went out of their way to make every experience as pleasurable and stress free as possible. The rooms were big and comfy, the pool was amazing, and the views were truly breathtaking. In the morning we were treated to home made breakfast with figs picked that morning. The scent of wild lavender permeates through the air. Salvatore gave a pasta making class, and the coup de grace, for us, was the pizza night. Salvatore has an outdoor brick oven, and that night we sat out on the veranda watching the most gorgeous sunset ever with 4 other couples, eating for about 4 hours. Pizza, pasta, salads, dessert, wine, incredible . Salvatore also explained to us that La Cuccagna is the name for the peasant's heaven. Their version of heaven is sitting with good friends, and eating and laughing all night. that's exactly what we had.

A rental car is absolutely necessary though to get there. there is NO public transport, but you'll be happy you had a car. The countryside is dotted with gorgeous medieval towns and fantastic little restaurants.

La Cuccagna is a lovely place, where you can experience the real Italian countryside. Sarah and Salvatore are very friendly and helpfull hosts. Their knowledge about the region of Umbria and their excellent cookingskills made our stay unforgettable. The house is situated in the hills and has an panoramic view over the valley. When you take a walk, you will pass sunflowers, olive trees and vineyards. The towns of Gubbio and Perugia are lovely to visit with their historical centres. Thanx to Sarah and Salvatore we saw the highlight and best spots of the towns. But the site of La Cuccagna offers more than enough. The smell of lavender and rosemary leads you to the swimmingpool with deckchairs. Even though the hammocks are very comforting. The stay was grandiose and we will definitly back again!

When we arived in la Caccugna we we're overwelmed because it was even more beautiful then we expected. Beautiful view, amazingly friendly hosts. Even though it was a very good spot to relax there are very interesting old towns around with nice restaurants. The highlight of our trip was the home made pizza and tiramisu that was offered us by the owner of La Caccugna.
A very pleasant and idylic spot!
