We have just returned from our second visit to La Cuccagna with Sal & Sarah!
We flew to Rome which was a much better journey than Bologna with beautiful scenery for the entire trip &it was so easy!
We arrived at La Cuccagna with both sets of Parents (one of which came with us last year) & our toddler! Upon arriving we were greeted by Sal & Sarah as if we had only seen them last week & not that a whole year had passed since our last visit, hugs & kisses were exchanged like old friends!
The parents were taken to the main house for tea & coffee whilst checking in whilst my husband & I bundled into La Stalletta & made ourselves completely at home! The fridge was stocked with fruit, apple juice, coffee & milk & the shelves were full of tea, sugar, salt & pepper. We had stopped at Mary's store in Casa Del Diavolo on our way so were we perfectly prepared for our first few evenings.
The pool & views were just as amazing & beautiful as we remembered last year & my MIL was silenced by how wonderful it was, especially as they wanted a calm & tranquil holiday!
Sarah is still a wonderful source of information & nothing is too much trouble. She arranged for us to visit many restaurants during our stay & gave us perfect directions each time. Sal's home made Pizza night was excellent & very enjoyable with the other guests who were all so very nice.
We had some wonderful weather however going to La Cuccagna is not about weather for us, it is about the relaxation, the food, the wine & the company!
I can't recommend La Cuccagna enough, it truly is a beautiful place, with gorgeous views, a fantastic family to welcome & look after you & who want you to enjoy every minute of your time there & experience the Umbrian way of life!
Needless to say we have already booked our return visit for 2014! Let the countdown begin! Only 365 days to go, which is far too long!
Thank you Sal & Sarah for such a lovely week xxxxx
