We enjoyed a lovely 3 days at La Cuccagna again this year. We were a little later in May than previous visits and the weather did not disappoint. Sal and Sarah have been working very hard again over the winter and are now offering a super indoor dining area overlooking the beautiful Umbrian hillsides.
We visited Spello this time and I can't believe I hadn't been before on previous trips to Umbria - this little hillside town was an absolute delight with the smell of Jasmine wafting from every narrow street and courtyard.
Our plans to walk up Mount Tezio did not materialise (again!!) but that's just an excuse for us to come back again next year.
- 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
